Eau De Death: Zombie Repellent for the Apocalypse

Eau De Death

 

Shows like The Walking Dead give a glimpse of the future that could be in the case of a zombie apocalypse. Doesn’t look like a bright future, does it? If you believe the apocalypse is coming, then the first thing you have to do is take measures to make sure that you don’t get bitten. You don’t have to smear yourself with zombie gunk or wear clothes worn by the undead. All you’ll have to do is spritz on Eau De Death and you’ll be fine–in theory, that is.

Eau De Death was thought up by chemist Raychelle Burks. It essentially smells like rotting corpses, so this will not only ward of the dead but scare off the living as well. It’s essentially a mix of chemicals that the body naturally produces during decomposition: putrescine and cadaverine. A few drops of methanethiol are added into the mix to give it that nice rotting egg scent.

Revenge Is A Dish Best Served With A Horse Head Pillow

horse_head_pillow_1

The Godfather fans, check this out. It’s a severed horse-head-stuffed plushy/pillow thing. That’s what we’d like to think of as “the perfect gift”, but of course only for those with a macabre sense of humour or with an unhealthy obsession with the movie. For all of $45 (or $35 unstuffed), you can own a 19 inch by 33 inch replica of one of the most iconic scenes in Hollywood history.

Fixie Pizza Cutter

If you never really learned how to ride a bike when you were a kid, then now’s your chance. Not ride as in, you know, on the road or anything, but ride as in with your fingers, on this Fixie Bike pizza cutter. Not only does it look like an awesome mini version of the actual Fixie, but it’s only meant to be “ridden” on top of a hot pizza pie, since it’s, you know, a pizza cutter and all.

It was thought up by doiydesign and comes with double sharp-cut discs.Continue Reading

Plastic Pennies: Get 1 For The Price Of 3.5

plastic

Pennies… Can we have that conversation, guys? As a friendly Canadian, I’d like to tell you that life is now better without the penny. Yes, that’s right, we got rid of it. No, we didn’t implode. Our pockets got lighter, our transactions got faster and we stopped spending more to make it than the thing was worth. It’s really an no brainer… But hey, we don’t pontificate. Just some friendly brotherly concern.

In any case, if you’re going to stick with pennies, maybe you should consider these plastic ones. You’ll have to spend $3.50 to own 100 of them, so they’re actually worth more than the real thing. Sure, they’re not exactly legal tender… so we’ll admit to writing about them just to have an excuse to have this conversation. Ok, we’re done.

For Your Million Dollar Ideas: Napkin Sketchbook

Napkin Sketchbook

JK Rowling wrote down her ideas for Harry Potter on paper napkins, which is now one of the biggest franchises of all time. I’m sure a lot of other people made it big by writing down their ideas on napkins, but she’s the only one I can think of right now. Inspiring story, though, isn’t it?

If you want to have a similar story about how you made it big, then you might want to get one of these Napkin Sketchbooks. At least you’ll be able to say you came up with that amazing, multi-billion dollar idea after jotting down your thoughts on a paper napkin–even though it wasn’t by whim or chance, but due to calculated moves.

The sturdy case comes with 10 napkins and a Sharpie to get your started. It’s available online for $38. It’s pretty steep, so you might want to get a hundred-pack of napkins from your grocery instead for much less.

Insert the object of your hate, stick in your toilet bowl and have at it.

Each $10 package contains 2 protectors.

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.
