    These are the Insect Pushpins available from CB2. $10 gets you two mosquitoes and two ants. For reference, that's $2.50 apiece, or more than 250x what I'm comfortable paying for a pushpin. Still, they look cool. I just wish I was at a place in my life where I could afford n... / Continue →

    This is the Doctor Who TARDIS Shower Curtain available from ThinkGeek ($30). I just bought one. Is it gonna make my shower bigger on the inside? Nope, but it is gonna make it colder since now I don't have enough to pay the gas bill. I'm pretty sure I willed this thing into... / Continue →

    Brass knuckles: if you use them in a fist fight it's cheating and I will stab you because if you're going to cheat I'm going to cheat even worse. The first rule of fighting is if you break a rule there are no rules anymore. Trust me, I used to do MMA. No I didn't, but I did ... / Continue →

    This is the $40 Han Solo light switch plate hand sculpted and for sale by Etsy seller WickedStudio. And no, the boner isn't a coincidence, they did that on purpose because apparently I'm not the only one who understands fine art. The Force is hard with this one. This is a wor... / Continue →

    In news that won't excite anyone and will probably make me look like an ass-hat for even posting it (I'm having a great self-esteem day), Budweiser is going to release new 'bowtie' shaped cans of its famous alcoholic water starting next month. I'm gonna buy some, save them for... / Continue →

    This is Trotify, a wooden device powered by your bike's front wheel that makes it sound like you're a horse clopping along down the road whenever you're riding. There's no horse though, it's just you and your handlebar mustache on a bicycle. The £19.99 (~$32) kits come with e... / Continue →

    This is an $80 desktop mini fridge that looks like a TARDIS from ThinkGeek. Don't want to keep your food cold? No worries, it also has a warming function. Of course leaving a sandwich on your desk is a FREE warming function. But not tuna -- no, not tuna. You leave a tuna s... / Continue →

    Cleanliness is next to godliness. I think that's an ancient proverb or something but I just remember it from that one Smashing Pumpkins song. You ever bathed with a Zora before? Me neither, but I would be willing to. Same goes for a Goron. These are a series of Zelda soaps... / Continue →

    This is the Big Head Squirrel Feeder from Archie McPhee. You just put food inside, then when one of those dirty little tree rats comes down eat it, they look like they have a giant head. I'm pretty sure that's a taxidermied squirrel in the picture there (it even attracts the ... / Continue →

    But I like my pizza square -- just like from the school cafeteria. Because the internet has dried up worse than a dog turd on the sidewalk in August, here are Pizza Plates, a $40 set of four single-slice novelty pizza plates. You know, for the person who seriously has EVERY... / Continue →

    Inb4 don't mind me, just dropping some tweets off at the bird-bath or whatever. Because this is the world we live in (I want out, STAT), Shitter will print four rolls of TP with the Twitter feed of your choice for $35. That's close to $9 a roll. You could almost wipe with do... / Continue →

    Wanna drink an alien brain hemorrhage shooter like the one in the picture? Of course you don't. Unfortunately it's your birthday and your friends are really passive aggressive about picking birthday shots. Well, at least know what you're getting yourself into. SPOILER: A l... / Continue →

    So apparently Nissan is getting into the iPhone case business after inventing a paint for its vehicles back in 2008 that "self-heals" after being scratched (video demo after the jump). Because God forbid your iPhone CASE gets a f***ing scratch in it. That -- that might just be... / Continue →

    I know what I'm getting you for Christmas! Coal -- you were terrible this year. I don't care what crappy toy commercials you saw watching Spongebob on Saturday morning and added to your list, you're not getting them. If I were Santa I'd drop a big ol' bag of flaming reindeer... / Continue →

    Remember that company that was selling perfectly round ice spheres for $8 a pop? Turns out they might have just been cranking them out with this Ice Ball Mold (55mm - 85mm models range from $1,300 - $2,000 -- chintzy marble-sized 30mm mold goes for $200). But now the secret (... / Continue →

    The Gunbrella is a real £10.99 (~$18) product that looks like one of those pop-guns with the flag that comes out that the Joker would point at Batman. Except it's an umbrella. But it does have an auto-open "trigger" so you can still aim it at people and scare them. Just not... / 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 →
