Food lift: because food is heavy

Feeling less than robust? The Weak Shop sells products for the weak and lazy. Like this food lift.

This is honestly the dumbest product I think I’ve ever posted.

A shirt to wear in Hamsterdam

This is an actual invention. It is subject to a patent in the US.

It is guaranteed to get you beaten up – or at least protested against by PETA.

“Gerbil Shirt
US Patent Issued In 1999

Hey, are you tired of leaving your small pets at home when you are out and about? Could you use a little more quality time with your gerbils, mice, hamsters or snakes? Well now your dreams have come true with the Gerbil Shirt! The Gerbil Shirt wraps your torso in plastic tube passageways, making your bod a super highway of fun for Binky and Bart. The interior surfaces are textured for traction and have air vents for easy breathing.”

Put a cap on your can

If you’re too uncoordinated to drink out of a can without spilling your drink down your shirt then maybe, just maybe, this set of 12 bottle tops for cans will come in handy.

I think they’re dumb…

Stupid Inventions, great concept

I have lots of ideas for stupid inventions – so I can totally sympathise with the creators of this YouTube series

Here are some great stupid inventions…

Cherry Chomper: Chomps cherries

And who knew that Cherry pitting was such a modern culinary dilemma? Not me. But thankfully Cherry Chomper is here.

Turns out it’s a real problem. Or so the retailer would have you believe

“Cherry chomper provides a safe, quick and clean way to pit cherries.”

“A fun tool for kids in the kitchen and a big help for those who suffer from arthritis.”

Yours for just $US14.98. If you dare..

Pen(t) up aggression

Sick of people stealing your pen? Me too. I hate it. My pens go missing from my desk at an alarming rate. The worst bit is when you see the aforementioned writing device in someone else’s mouth. get the pen back complete with fresh teeth marks. Your troubles will be a distant memory if you invest the $US1.69 to purchase this pen.

Found here. I can’t believe someone made this – and worse, I can’t believe I posted it… or maybe I can.

Digital workout

If thumb wrestling has worn out your thumb – and you need a work for a different digit but in the same vein perhaps this finger controlled arm wrestling game will fill that very specific gap in your exercise regime. But why not just play XBox? It’s yours for just $US24.95.

See sore (sic) bike

An invention for the ages. Headbutt your friends in the ultimate pedal powered version of push me pull me. As you lose weight through exertion your friend gets closer to the road – eventually taking over with catastrophic consequences:

Cheque your emotions

My hatred of emoticons knows no bounds and has been documented previously. They are bad. They are for lazy writers – they are an exclamation mark taken to a new low. So the idea of a USB keyboard dedicated to emoticons just makes me feel empty inside. Those who are interested may like to know that they can be removed from the keyboard and worn as jewelry.

Bajca’s (the company) designer says:

Bajca’s idea arise from connecting deeply the virtual with the real life. Bajca is the instrument that ” make real” the emotion- a digital translation of every sensation- telling the story of everyday life; spoken, touched and wearn every day.

I say :(. No word yet on how much these will set you back financially – socially they’ll be crippling.

Warning signs

This fully posable warning sign finally allows you to warn others of the perils of your mastery of obscure strains of martial arts. Otherwise it’s completely useless.
