A Pest in the Water: Giant Cockroach Float

Giant Cockroach Float

 

When you tell people that there’s a giant cockroach in the water, then you can expect a few of them to freak out and jump out of the pool because, well, there’s a roach. But put this particular giant roach into the pool, and you’ll get a few disgusted side glances at most along with a couple of double-takes.

The Giant Cockroach float is exactly what its name says it is, and while it may not feel as scratchy as an actual roach (“scratchy” being my choice of adjective, after several encounters with roaches that seemed to think that it was a good idea to hide in my shoe, of all places), it’s still very much capable of raising the hairs of those who are katsaridaphobic.

The float is available online for $29.95.

YankMe Candles Bring Disgusting Scents Like ‘Dutch Oven’ to Your Home–Well, Sort Of!

YankMe Candle

 

Can you imagine lighting up a candle that smells like urinal mints or skid marks? What about dutch oven and dog vomit-scented candles? Not very appealing, are they? These are exactly what the labels of YankMe Candles say, and those are the scents that’ll hit you the moment you open the lid.

Who in their right mind would buy candles with such unpleasant scents? Nobody, obviously. YankMe knows that, and they’re only yanking your chain because the candles don’t really smell like what their labels claim once you burn them. There’s actually smelly disc on the inside that’s emanating the stink of urinals and farts, but once you get that out of the way, you’ll be treated to soothing scents that you’d expect from a regular ol’ candle.

The candles retail for $14.99 each.

Gastropods for Your iPod: Snail and Slug Earbuds

Now This is Putting a Ring On It: Giant Cathedral Ring

Giant Cathedral Ring

Take a cue from Beyonce and put a ring on it! It doesn’t have to be a ring with a huge rock or something that’s over-the-top fancy, because what’s more important is what the ring symbolizes. However, if you can afford it and know your fiance would want something that’s larger than life, then maybe this giant Cathedral ring will do.

Its maker, MetalCoutureJewelry, didn’t hold anything back when they design the humongous ring. Something they probably didn’t consider though: the wearer poking herself in the eye when she reaches up to fix her glasses or hair or something.

Put On a New Face: Personal Surveillance Identity Prosthetic

Personal Surveillance Identity Prosthetic

Cameras and facial recognition systems are everywhere, even in places where you least expect them. Some people are all for it for the sake of security, while others feel like it’s an invasion of their privacy. If you agree with the latter, never going out–and hence, never showing your face in public again–isn’t a viable option. So instead you’re stuck with alternatives like Urme Surveillance’s identity prosthetic mask that literally lets you wear someone else’s face. Unfortunately, it does make you look a bit creepy in the process.

Other options include a paper mask (which are beyond obvious, but they will still hide your face from cameras) and the video facial encryptor, which covers your face with another one when you’re streaming video or when you’re making a video call.

Saucony Burger Shoes1

These sneakers might not look out of the ordinary if you look at them from the front, but check it out from all sides and your stomach might just begin to rumble. Not that it actually looks like a burger that you could sink your teeth into, but it’s clear where its designers drew inspiration for its design.

The Shadow 5000 Burgers sneakers are a result of the collaboration between Saucony and End Clothing. I guess you can think of it as some sort of ode to burgers, which has grown in popularity over the years.

Not Quite So Super: Superhero Poop

Spiderman Poop

Art is subjective. One man’s trash is another one’s treasure. Both statements apply in the case of this collection of Superhero Poop by Antonis Art Asylum. There’s nothing super or heroic about the polymer clay poop, other than the fact that they look like the costumes that the pooper (in this case, the superheroes) wear when they’re in action.

Each piece of poop is handmade and, as its maker proudly claims, no two are alike, “just like real poop.”

The set comes with a designer flysheet, a matching bag, an innter tent, A-frame poles and pegs, waterproofing, an owner’s manual, and a carry bag to stuff everything in.
