Eyeball Bowling Ball: All Eyes on the Pins

Eyeball Bowling Ball

 

So you probably shouldn’t get this particular bowling ball if you don’t want all eyes in the bowling alley on you. The Eyeball bowling ball is unusual, even grotesque, and it’ll make some people lose their lunch, what with the veins and red stuff behind the cornea and all. But if you’re the king of pins and don’t mind the attention that using this ball will get you, then by all means, get it and give it your best shot.

The Eyeball bowling ball is available online for $140.
