    This is the Tactical Laser-Guided Pizza Cutter available from ThinkGeek ($20, on sale from $30). It has a detachable laser guide (plus bonus flashlight!) on top to help you cut your pizza straight. I didn't know that was a problem. I could probably cut a pizza straight with ... / Continue →

    What are those, store-brand chocolate chippers? NO THANKS. This is the $30 Game of Thrones Dragon Egg Cookie Jar available from ThinkGeek. The paint job leaves a little something to be desired, so I suggest repainting it yourself if you buy one. Just be sure to use lead-fre... / Continue →

    These are the remains of a Roomba from Austria that allegedly turned itself on, ran onto a kitchen hotplate, and burned to death. Robot suicide? We can only hope. I like how you can see the ash tire tracks from when it was running around in circles while on fire. That makes... / Continue →

    This is the $26 'Splash Red Chopping Board'. It looks like a cartoon pool of blood. Or maybe a paint spill. I don't know, what do you see? Dripping tomatoes? "THE BLOOD OF MY ENEMIES RUNNING OVER THE CHOPPING BLOCK." Okay this was actually a Rorschach test and you failed,... / Continue →

    This is a series of washable drinkware from Red Cup Living (you know, because SOLO cups are a lifestyle like Netflix) that look like the classic red kegger cups. They're not though, they're sturdier and dishwasher safe and cost $4-$10 per cup. Me? I'm afraid my keg partying... / Continue →

    This is the custom Boba Fett mixer created by DeviantARTist tommyfilth (please, just bathe) while refurbishing the broken KitchenAid his wife bought him for Christmas (which, for the record, he requested -- she's not just some terrible gift-giver). Man, that thing would look g... / Continue →

    This is the $40,500 Meneghini La Cambusa refrigerator. It costs a fortune but keeps food cold just like the $400 fridge I bought on Craigslist. I don't know, maybe this one won't smell like a corpse when it shows up. The fridge includes, in no particular order: a refrigerator... / Continue →

    The Pancake Plate is an ever-so-slightly tilted plate with a reservoir at the bottom to collect all the syrup runoff from your flappyjacks. Unfortunately, a set of two costs $45, making it far more economical TO EAT F***ING WAFFLES. They have natural syrup reservoirs built in... / Continue →

    Cigarette magnets: can you think of a better way to let a child know just how crappy their art is? "Um, yeah -- just tell them till they start crying." Damn you're sick. "Or you could throw it in the trash right in front of them." ENOUGH ALREADY, YOU WIN OKAY? Anyway, Ciga... / Continue →
