    This is the $150 officially licensed Han Solo frozen in carbonite mini fridge available from ThinkGeek (soon to be GameGeekThinkStop, who will buy back your previously used products for pennies on the dollar). It's weird this was actually a rejected Star Wars product considere... / Continue →

    Outties are jeans that appear to be inside-out, inspired by the 2015 fashion trend in Back To The Future II. As you may recall if you haven't already destroyed your brain with drugs and alcohol (I sadly could not recall), Doc warms Marty to "Pull out his pants pockets" because... / Continue →

    This is a first look at the official $60 Big Bang Theory LEGO set due out later this year that people apparently wanted. I previously speculated it wouldn't get made, but I was wrong. For the record, that is the second time I've ever been wrong and I'm strong enough to admit ... / Continue →

    Bike Balls is a $13 rear light for your bicycle that dangles and swings from the back of your seat so it looks like your balls are glowing at night. The concept is that the movement of the light, combined with the fact that it looks like a glowing nutsack, will grab the attent... / Continue →

    Remember in the original Jurassic Park when Dennis Nedry used a specially modified Barbasol shaving cream can in an attempt to smuggle dinosaur embryos out of the park? I thought that was a pretty week plot point because not a single person who takes a look at that slovenly sa... / Continue →

    TeabagByMail is a real service that will anonymously send a reusable testicles shaped teabag and some "nut free" (LOLOL) loose-leaf tea to any address for $10. Somebody bought me one but I didn't get the joke and just thought some kindhearted soul sent me a little drawstring h... / Continue →

    The Mewgaroo Hoodie (~$50) is a hoodie with a giant pouch on the front for a kitty to curl up in. Also works for small dogs. The pouch has a removeable, washable liner so it doesn't get all funky in there. Plus the hood has little ears and the cuffs have paw pads on them so ... / Continue →

    This is the $60 Captain America Shield Backpack available from ThinkGeek. It looks like Captain America's Shield, has a padded laptop/tablet pocket, and a hard plastic exterior. Speaking of backpacks -- is it still cool to only wear your backpack on one shoulder? Because w... / Continue →

    The Couchlet is a $16 USB hub that adds two outlets to the cracks of a sofa (power not included). I imagine seeing a lot of these at yard sales in the coming years. It's slim design and fold-out foot help keep it in place. Possibly enough to justify spending $16 on a USB hub... / Continue →

    Because the day when every product is available with a Star Wars theme is rapidly approaching (my guess is around summer 2017) his is the furry Chewbacca can koozie available in July from Entertainment Earth ($8). I have never paid $8 for a can koozie before. Besides, the bes... / Continue →

    This is the Bowler Hat Colander available from Firebox ($20, but $80 total to get it shipped to the US, i.e. not worth it). It can strain spaghetti or accent a mustache and bow tie with equal dexterity. When I was a kid I used to wear a metal colander on my head to prevent th... / Continue →

    This is the Geek Nerd Clock available from Etsy seller LetterThings ($23). The numbers have been replaced with geeky references to the number that should be there. They blew the opportunity to use a reference to Battlestar Galactica's Number Six for 6 o'clock though. Also, 1... / Continue →

    The Joker is a $15 birthday card that, once activated, plays the Happy Birthday song over and over until the battery runs out (~3 hours) or the card is destroyed. I just bought one but I can't decide who to send it to. I guess I should probably send it to somebody with a birt... / Continue →
