Fooled Ya: Chocolate Lumps Of Coal

Chocolate Lumps Of Coal

 

For this holiday season, don’t be a grinch and give someone the gift of coals– chocolate lumps of coal, that is. That’s what they might look like at first glance, but you’ll soon realize that they’re just delectable chunks of chocolate wrapped in a not-so-appetizing package. To ward off kids and prying fingers, maybe?

Each package holds three lumps of chocolate wrapped in shiny black foil. They’re available online for $8.

Poop and Play: Sudoku Toilet Paper

Sudoku Toilet Paper

 

Bored at the loo? Put that bathroom reader aside and pick up your pen because it’s time to exercise your mind while you flex your butt muscles. You won’t need anything else, because the puzzles are printed right on this roll of tissue paper. One square, two squares, three squares, four– solve as many as you can until it’s time to flush.

You might want to bring an extra roll of tissue if you can’t bear to use more of the Sudoku roll than you have to. It’s available online for about $17.

These Shoes Have A Hidden Whisky Compartment

johnnie-tan-leather-brogue

We’re having trouble coming up with scenarios where you might be tempted to wear $500 leather shoes, while simultaneously smuggling a tiny bottle of Johnny Walker scotch. A funeral, maybe? An upper-crust tee-totaler’s box social? We don’t know, and yet there you have it: the Johnnie Tan Leather Brogue, an Italian made, custom-embroidered shoe with an almost-hidden booze compartment.

The limited edition Johnnie Walker Oliver Sweeney Brogue is a footwear first that brings together style, design and flair. The iconic Oxford Style Brogue features a reworked crank to accommodate a Johnnie Walker Red Label miniature in the heel, custom-embroidery, a striding man tattoo, red suede lining in the heel compartment and a transparent top piece to reveal the whisky from below. A sophisticated and progressive alternative to a classic, the Johnnie Walker Oliver Sweeney Brogue will make sure you boldly keep walking.

It’s actually $489 for the shoe, so not quite $500.

This Useless Box is Utterly Useless

Useless Box

What’s in a name? Well, in the case of the Useless Box, everything, because its name basically gives it away. This fancy-looking box with the regal feel is nothing more than junk, given the fact that it’s useless. It makes the perfect gift for your sworn enemy and for people you feel like pranking this season because despite appearances, the box exists to disappoint.

The moment you flick that switch to turn the box on, it automatically turns itself off, no matter how many times you try.

Captain Jules’s Useless Box is a very simple device. Inside the wooden box (with real metal accents) resides a bunch of gears and the latest in electricity-powered motors. Turn the switch on, and a bit of machinery will poke out and flip the switch off. That’s all the Captain Jules’s Useless Box does. But it’s enough of an oddity to make it right at home on your desk or bookshelf.

Would you shell out $40 for something so useless? ThinkGeek seems to think so.

NoPhone Is A Piece Of Plastic That Helps You Cut Your Smartphone Addiction

nophone

Your smartphone is always in your front pocket, reassuring you with its hefty weight, giving you a solid block to periodically touch and remind yourself that yes, you’re connected, yes you can be reached, yes you can Instagram any second you’d like… But if that life of an addict is no longer for you, and you’ve decided to ditch your phone for good (bold move, my friend!), the NoPhone might help you transition. It’s just a piece of plastic. But it’s a piece of plastic meant to mimic the look and feel of a phone. You carry it in your pocket as you would a phone, and it gives you the same tactile feedback, minus any functionality whatsoever. It weighs between 2.82 and 3.5 ounces (between 80 and 100 grams), and its measurements are as follows: Height: 5.5 inches (140 mm), Width: 2.6 inches (67 mm), Depth: 0.29 inches (7.3 mm). Standard smartphone dimensions.

A selfie upgrade is available, which consists of a mirror, and can send you your own selfies to yourself in realtime. You can even “add a verbal hashtag by syncing your brain and vocal cords.” It’s brilliant. Best of all, it’s only $12 and should be able to ship in time for Christmas.

‘You Suck At Parking’ Business Cards

you-suck-at-parking-business-cards-640x533

We’ve all seen ‘that guy’ with the Hummer, parking between spots like he owns the place. It’s infuriating, not the least of which because ‘that guy’ is usually not around for you to glare at and at least have a shot at letting him know just how pissed off you are. But if you’d been carrying these cool business cards, it would have taken you all of 5 seconds to send a clear message, just by slipping one under his wipers. You’d then be free to go inside your store and smugly shop, with the comforting knowledge that in a few minutes someone is going to get insulted, and you won’t even have to confront face to face.

It’s $5 for a 10 pack.

New Pills Make Farts Smell Like Chocolate

chocolate-fart-pills

The Holidays are under way, and that means you’ll soon be putting your intestinal tract through some rigorous quality testing. Much gasses will be made, and wouldn’t it be great if these didn’t suffocate your guests? A 65 year old French man, Christian Poincheval, claims to have invented pills that can give your flatulence the sweet smell of chocolate. He sells these on his website at the reasonable rate of $12.50 for 60 capsules, and apparently has been selling similar pills that make your farts smell of roses for years. Whether any of the fart fragrances actually works is not known, but we’d love to hear from anyone that’s tried it.

Creepy But Awesome: Raiders Of The Lost Ark Melting Nazi Face Candle

Raiders Of The Lost Ark Melting Nazi Face Candle

The Melting Toht candle looks like your regular old candle-in-the-shape-of-a-man-with-his-mouth-open candle at first glance. But light it up and you’ll see that it will slowly transform into Gestapo agent Toht from Raiders of the Lost Arc from that unforgettable scene towards the end of the movie.

Even if you haven’t seen the flick, the candle’s still awesome to watch as it burns. Hit the break for a video of that scene we’re talking about (it’s not for the faint-hearted!)

Beware of H2O: Scientific Side Effects Water Bottle

Scientific Side Effects Water Bottle

 

Water is more dangerous than you think…not. Okay, so it could be, but only if you consume hideously excessive amounts of it in a short span of time. So fool a couple of people of people who don’t really know the facts about H2O by pranking– er, gifting– them with one of these ‘Scientific Side Effects Water’ bottle. A bold warning about what happens if you drink too much water is printed on the side.

It reads: “May cause diaphoresis, micturation, and acute tissue hydration.” In normal human speak, that translates to: “May cause you to sweat, pee, and be adequately hydrated.” Doesn’t sound so dire now, does it?

It’s available online for $18.
