Bacon Scarf Looks Delicious, Isn’t For Eating

bacon-scarf-a-scarf-that-looks-exactly-like-delicious-bacon-0

We want to buy this. It’s a silk scarf made by Natalie Luder, a designer from Switzerland, and is called “Fou Lard Bacon Scarf” (“foulard” is the French word for scarf). It’s digitally printed, along with a black rolled hem, and measures 70.8 inches long x 13.7 inches wide. It looks so delicious, we could eat it. But we won’t.

We won’t even buy it.

Why? Well, because the darn thing is $170. Who on earth would ever pay $170 for a novelty silk scarf? Anyway… it’s nice to know it exists, we suppose.

Cardboard Laptop For Your Cat

cattop_webpage_01_01

Let’s face it: if you have a cat, chances are he’s already wandered onto your laptop as you work, confusing your keyboard for a warm bed and interrupting your workflow. You scratch his belly, shoo him off, and try to keep working, only to watch him do it again two minutes later. Maybe he wants his own laptop? Well, that’s exactly what you’re looking at here. This cardboard laptop features a neat customizable “slide-in” screen, easily replaceable with a printed desktop image of your choosing. There’s also a scratch pad keyboard that will give your kitty a place to exercise his claws, away from your furniture and other expensive items. It even comes with a fluffy mouse toy, because what Cat Laptop is complete without that? It’s $35.

trick-cup

If you’re considering purchasing this, the Gross Smokers Prankster Mug, then you should be aware that you’re very likely “that guy”… You know, the guy who can be annoying as hell but everyone loves anyway because you’re mostly harmless and somewhat entertaining when everyone’s had a drink or five? Yeah, so keep being yourself, you prankster-to-be you; this mug should give you and your lucky friends a giggle or two at the very least. It features some pretty realistic cigarette butts at the bottom, so that when your guests are about to finish that coffee you so graciously offered, they’ll be rewarded with a tasteful surprise they’re sure to appreciate. It’s $9.

The Cupsy Sofa Drink Organizer Is Indispensable

cupsy-couch-beverage-holder-and-organizer-0

So you can’t afford a fancy La-Z-Boy with a fancy drink holder next to the seat? Well that’s fine, son, it doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself of the convenience afforded by those elitist La-Z-Boy-sittin’ oligarchs: get the Cupsy Sofa and Couch Beverage Organizer. The folding legs means it can solidly be wedged between two sofa cushions, giving you easy and immediate access two cup holders, a center container for a TV remote, a cell phone, or anything else, as well as two fold-down arms for wine cups. It’s lightweight, repositionable, and the legs are removable so you can use it in even more situations, like on floaters in the pool. That’s a lot of convenience for $30.

Gear Heads Need A Tactical Can Cooler

imvl_tactical_can_cooler

You’re looking at a koozie. Simple as that. But if you’re going to get a koozie/drink chiller sleeve thing, why not give it some personality. It seems “tactical” is the new “in” look, considering products like the Tactical Baby Carrier or the Tactical Laser-Guided Necktie. Now you can avoid getting your fingers wet from beer can condensation, while giving your drink a bit of a butch look.

– Nite Ops Can Cooler with LED Light
– A ThinkGeek creation & exclusive
– Great for gun and military enthusiasts
– 2 5/8″ opening fits standard 12 oz. beverage cans
– Twist the bottom to turn on/off LED flashlight
– Materials: ABS plastic
– Batteries: 3 AAA (not included)

Of course you may find it outrageous to charge $10 for a koozie, but considering all the “features”, it’s not such a bad deal.

A Frankenstein Light Switch

frankenstein_light_switch_1

Wanna add a bit of flair to your living space? How about the Frankenstein Light Switch? It’s a plastic cover for your light switch that ends up making it look like a giant Frankenstein style circuit breaker. It comes in single or double switch versions, for $10 or $15. Comes unpainted, so it’ll fit any decor. Unfortunately, high demand means you may have to wait up to 10 weeks to get yours, but if you have access to a 3D printer, the file is also available for you to print at home.

Never-Ending Birthday Card Goes On and On and On

Never Ending Birthday Card

The Never-Ending Birthday Card is the card you should give to frenemies, friends, and family who you want to annoy the crap out of– but while still being endearing– at the same time. The card starts playing as soon as its opened, and as its name suggests, it won’t stop until it runs out of juice. That’s an estimated 3 hours of playing time, which should be enough to drive most people bonkers.

The best part? There’s no way to stop it, because it will keep on playing even if you tear, submerge, or burn the card. How’s that for dedication?

The Never-Ending Birthday Card is available for £9.99 (~$16.)

Would You Ever Use A Portable, Inflatable Bathtub?

inflatable-bathtub

File this under novelty items, but it’s interesting nonetheless. The Inflatable Bath Tub for adults is exactly what it sounds like: a bathtub that you fill up with air, and can use “anywhere”. It comes with its own air pump, and when deployed, will fit a person up to 6’5″ and 280 lbs. Of course, you’ll have the issue of figuring out how you’re going to fill it with water, and then drain it afterwards. Although it comes with a 4 foot accordion drain hose, we imagine that setting up an inflatable bath tub on your fifth floor apartment poses more challenges than most people imagine. Still, if you like to live dangerously, you can own one for $179. And unlike the girl in the picture, it’s totally ok to get in with your clothes off.

Like a Fish Out Of Water: Giant Soy Sauce Water Bottle

Giant Soy Sauce Water Bottle

No, this isn’t a giant soy sauce bottle, although you can use it for that as well. It’s actually a water bottle inspired by those small, single-serving soy sauce bottles that they give you at most Japanese sushi places. It can hold up to 500 ml of your drink of choice and comes with a strap so you can guzzle soy sauce, er, water when you’re on the go.

If you’re bored, just fill it with coffee and take it with you to the office. That should be fun (and it should also ward off would-be freeloaders from drinking your stuff.)
