Keep On Poppin’: Everlasting Bubble Wrap iPhone Case

Bubble Wrap Case

Here’s a quick tip on what you can do if you’re stressed: pop bubble wrap. It sounds silly, but it actually works for many people, yours truly included. There’s just something therapeutic about popping bubble wrap when so many things are going wrong (ie. crappy day at work, bank account got hacked, there’s no more milk in the fridge…)

It seems wasteful, since bubble wrap is a non-renewable commodity. Or is it?

Organic Dehydrated Water: Gluten-Free, No MSG, and For Fools Only

Organic Dehydrated Water

There’s a reason why you should pay attention to labels. Most health buffs these days pick ‘organic’ options where they’re available, while those on a particular diet look for products marked ‘gluten-free.’ But for the ultimate ‘healthy’ treat, I invite you to give organic dehydrated water a shot. It’s free from MSG, it doesn’t contain any gluten, and it’s fresh and definitely not made from concentrate, if you’re worried about that.

Oh, and in case you missed the part about it being dehydrated water, then you fit the target market for these tins–the fools market, that is.

Hedgehog Toothpick Holder Will Tell Your Guests What Kind Of Host You Are


Just don’t ask us what that means exactly. Being the kind of host that serves hors-d’oeuvres in a bowl on which is perched the above toothpick holder would tell us all kinds of things, but since we’re I’m socially inept, I’m not sure what those things are. It could say you’ve got a quirky sense of humor, along with making a statement about how you like to pay attention to detail. Or it could mean that you’re just really into hedgehogs. Or that you like cute things. Because hey, that thing is nothing if not cute.

The price is kind of cute too, though. For what’s basically a little novelty item, you’re going to have to pay $25. It’s being sold at the MoMA store, so someone associated with that institution deemed the little fella cool enough to make the cut. Maybe that explains the premium.

ManHands Manly-Scented Soaps: Because All You Need to Be a Man is to Smell Like One

Man Soap

Remember that song that went something like, “Walk like a man, talk like a man…” by the Four Seasons? They should’ve added something about smelling like man, because apparently, all you have to do to be a man is smell like one. That is, if the promo people behind ManHands line of manly-scented soaps for men are to be believed.

They do have a point. With all the floral and perfume-scented bars of soap in the market, a guy has to do a lot of searching to find one that won’t leave him smelling like a girl. The search is now over, though, because ManHands has got every guy on the planet covered. I’m just not sure if guys will actually want to use the soaps in their novelty-like line, which includes scents like beer, bacon, muscle rub, and urinal mint.

I Pity the Tea: Mr. T Just Loves Teabagging Your Tea

Mr. T Tea Bag

The thought of someone tea-bagging the cup of tea you’re about to drink is just plain gross. In fact, it’s downright disgusting. That said, I wouldn’t mind it though if it were Mr. T who did the teabagging. Not because he’s a celebrity of sorts, but because of the fact that he is the actual tea bag itself.

These hilarious Mr. Tea tea bags let you unwind with Mr. T sprawled gregariously in your tea cup. Each set comes with two tea bags and a matching greeting card so you can give the gift of T-bagging to someone who truly deserves it.

It should come as no surprise that Mr. T is extremely popular with the tea-drinking crowd, so it’s currently out of stock, but you can sign up to get notified when it becomes available again.

Currency Coasters Are Made From Money – Literally

What happens when paper money falls out of circulation? We’re not sure, but some of it clearly gets shredded and ends up as coasters. Mixed with a type of resin, the Currency Coasters are part shredded ex-money, part plastic and all conversation piece.

Well, maybe not conversation. Maybe just a “hey, dude, your coasters are neat-o!” But at $35 for 4, that’ll do.

Giant Inflatable Robot Fists Are Great for Costumes, Not So Great for Boxing

Giant Inflatable Battle Fists

It’ll take a while to knock someone out if you don’t really know what you’re doing. It might take even longer if you happen to be wearing these Giant Robot Battle Fists on both hands. That’s just as well, because they weren’t made for use in fights in the first place anyway.

They’re great for cosplays (Mega Man, anyone?) and for costumes. And with Halloween coming up in just a few weeks, you can kiss your costume woes goodbye. ThinkGeek says they’re forged from Cobalt Flame and Robotonium, but we all know better. They’ll ship out flattened, of course, but just pump in some air (or blow some in if you feel like showing off) and you’ll be good to go.
