Do you ever see a product online or an informercial and go, What. The. %&$*.
Then proceed to laugh hysterically and forward the video and/ or website to your nearest and dearest.
What, just me?
I thought since it’s the holiday season, I’d offer you a different kind of gift list. That of the the 10 weirdest (or worst, depending on how you see it) products.
1. The URO Club
I can’t even keep my face straight writing this. The URO Club, priced at $24.95, is designed to help you relieve yourself while you’re playing golf. *SNORT* It’s designed to look like a golf club but has a built-in ‘reservoir’ so you can pee discreetly. Like this:
Yup, that’s pretty discreet. *SNORT*
2. Boyfriend Body Pillow
In case you have no one to wrap their arms around you at night, not to worry! The creepy boyfriend body pillow, only $29.95, is here to save the day!!
Someone please tell me that’s normal.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve never had a problem with my boobs waking me up in the middle of the night because they were falling all over each other. Not so much that I need a plastic implement like Kush, for $24.99, to make sure my breasts are where they’re supposed to be when sleeping. Or maybe it’s because I just don’t look like her:
How about just wearing a good support bra?
4. Cheers To You CD
If you’ve always wished you had a soundtrack following you around, telling you how awesome you are (because you know, the husband and children just refuse to), then just go ahead and get this, the Cheers To You CD, which has 8 “tracks of encouragement and praise with cheering applause”.
Yeah, for $16.95, I’ll just get this and play it all day when I do the laundry, wipe poopy butts, make dinner, clean – nothing like a little motivation, right?
5. My Sneezee Armbands
The My Sneezee Armband claims to “teach your child proper sneezing and coughing etiquette” for just $14.95. It’s an armband, so your kid can sneeze and cough into his er, arm. Like so.
Here’s a thought – how about using some tissue or a hankerchief?
6. Snazzy Napper
So when you travel, you tend to nap right? And who wants to see lolling heads and drooling mouths? According to Snazzy Napper, no one! So for just $14.99 for a small one or another 10 bucks for the extra large napper, you can look like a muppet while getting some shut eye!
Isn’t that, er, snazzy?
7. Pizza Sleeping Bag
Yes, I’d really like some giant mushrooms as pillows, why not? Why yes, I’d LOVE to sleep in a pizza! It’s not weird at all! I mean, look, how cool is this!! It’s only $300!!! To sleep in a pizza sleeping bag!
The students who designed and are selling this – I hope you make a killing, so you can fund your education and eat lots of pizzas.
8. Wolf Urine Lure
I’m wondering whether Twilight fans, specifically those who lust after Jacob Black, might purchase this in hopes that it’d lure a wolf to their door.
Handerpants is, you guessed it, underpants for your hands. Wait, what? Why would your hands need pants? Well, according to Handerpants, it “prevents chafing, absorbs sweat, distracts enemies and is great for jazz hands.” I did not make that up. Recommended uses include wearing them while painting your nails, handling construction tools, cooking, cruising and this – night blogging (quote, unquote):
Quick, go grab a pair for $11.95!! Blogging needs it!
10. Pikaru Baby Carrier Vest
Perfectly suitable if you DON’T live on planet Earth.
No, not creepy at all.
Linking up with The Good Life’s Monday Listicles. Who asked for a Christmas wish list and I made a Christmas wish-not list instead. Yes, I am a rule breaker like that.
And linking up with lovelinks #34.
What weird products have you come across? Will you buy any of the above for someone for Christmas?
