Check Out This Fancy $500 Ready-to-Eat Dinner

Expensive TV Dinner

TV dinners often look crappier in real life than what’s being advertised on the box. If you think about it, you shouldn’t really expect a completely satisfying and wholesome meal out of the box, since it did come frozen and is ready-to-eat after nuking it for a couple of minutes.

Redefining ready-made dinners  is Chef Charlie Bigham and his extremely fancy dinner creation that will please even the pickiest of people. It’s being dubbed as the fanciest, most luxurious TV dinner that money can buy. For starters, there’s the amuse-bouche of Beluga caviar. The main course of lobster, wild turbot, fresh diver-caught scallops, smoked salmon and oysters that are poached in Dom Perignon champagne sauce follows. If that’s not enough, there’s also fresh white Alba truffle with creamy mashed Yukon Gold heritage potatoes on the side and a 24-carat gold leaf crumb to complete the meal.

The entire dinner costs £314.16 (about $500) and was available starting last December 4th.

Bah, Humbug! Candy Cane: No Flavor, No Stripes, No Christmas Spirit

Bah Humbug Candy Cane

Not feeling the Christmas spirit? Bogged down with so much work that you feel like being a Scrooge this year? You don’t have to give up your love for candy canes even though you might not be feeling the holiday cheer. If the usual red and green stripes are rubbing you off the wrong way, then you can simply go for the Bah, Humbug! Candy Cane. It’s got no flavor (no peppermint, just plain candy!), no stripes (you can’t go wrong with pure white), and no Christmas spirit (I’m not sure this is a good thing, but if you aren’t feeling it, then why force it?)

It’s the kind of thing that goes perfectly hand-in-hand with the Gift of Nothing. The Bag! Humbug Candy Cane is available online for $5.99.

‘Meat Parade’ is the Hammiest Record Ever

Meat Parade

Crazy over meat? Then march to the beat of two meat-themed songs from Archie McPhee’s newly-released record that’s aptly called Meat Parade. It’s a limited-edition record that looks like a “beautifully marbled ham steak”–is anyone getting hungry after looking at this record? I know I am.

Only a thousand of these meaty records have ever been produced, so if you’ve been collecting other meat-themed items from Archie McPhee (like the Meat Parade Lunchbox and Meat Parade Wrapping Paper Book), then you might want to hurry and pick one of these up before they’re gone for good.

For ‘Firmer’ and ‘Higher’ Noses, Give the Beauty Lift High Nose a Try

Beauty Lift High Nose

I subscribe to the belief that everyone is born beautiful in their own special way. If everyone looked like society’s perception of beauty, then nobody would be truly beautiful because everyone would look the same at that point. Unfortunately, a lot of women think differently, as they see the need to go under the knife to change how they look. I’m not judging though; everyone’s free to do as they please, and if they feel like plastic surgery is the way to go, then it’s their choice.

If you’re thinking of going that route, then you might wan to consider the Beauty Lift High Nose first. It’s an unusual-looking gizmo sold by Japan Trend Shop that promises to give users a “firmer, higher” nose with continued usage. Of course, nothing is proven, but you might realize a couple of things while you defer the surgery and use this instead.

When worn, the Beauty Lift High Nose delivers a constant, gentle vibration to the parts of your nose that need it. The site recommends that the device be used for three minutes a day, every day. It retails for $68.

Forget That Rabbit’s Foot! Here’s a Jar of Instant Luck

Insta Luck

Down on your luck? Forget that rabbit’s foot and grab a jar of Insta-Luck instead. Each of these tiny jars contain a hand-picked four-leaf clover that’s grown in the USA and preserved through a 5-step method to make sure that it’ll last you a lifetime. Finding an authentic four-leaf clover yourself has a 1 in 10,000 chance in happening, so save yourself some time and buy one instead.

Luck isn’t guaranteed, but at least you’ll have something to hold on to (aside from your faith) when the going gets tough and when the odds are against you.

Apparently a lot of people believe in four-leaf clovers as well, since they’re all currently sold out online. Fret not though, because they’ll be back in stock on later this month and will be priced at $11.99.

That’s A Shark With A Frikin’ Laser… Pointer On Its Head

f2eb_shark_w_frickin_laser_pointer_hand

If you’re giving a presentation and whip this puppy out and no one laughs, you need to give presentations to people with a better sense of humour. It’s a laser pointer shaped like a shark with a laser on its head. It’s brilliant, and it’s just $15. Sure, it’s a novelty item, but we think that it would provide just the right amount of levity while you’re discussing the finer details of superstring theory to a doubtlessly enraptured audience.

Stan Lee Cologne Smells Nothing Like Stan

Stan Lee Cologne

This cologne might have been named after Stan Lee. Heck, it was probably inspired by him or created with his seal of approval. But don’t be misled, because it smells nothing like Stan ‘The Man’ himself. Unless he wears the cologne himself, of course.

It’s being made by JADS International, which was also the company behind the Avengers cologne. The Stan Lee cologne is described as being as “adventurous as Stan’s superheroes, yet it can make you feel a bit villainous.” Apparently, that’s how Stan wanted it for his fans who might be picking up a bottle or two of his signature cologne.

Climate-Controlled Box of Bacon: The World’s Most Tasty Gift

Climate Controlled Bacon

No meat has ever garnered the same massive fandom that bacon has. It’s meaty, it’s smoky, it’s tasty, and you could cook it so that it’s chewy, crunchy, or somewhere in between. You could grill it with meat to make the tastiest steaks ever, or throw a couple of strips into your burger to make it infinitely better.

Father’s day is fast approaching, so if you’re stumped on what gift to get your dad, then here’s an idea for you: how about climate-controlled boxes filled with tasty strips of bacon by Oscar Meyer?
