The iPad Potty

As adults, we need to put our collective feet down and say "NO" to iPads on the potty. And considering how long it takes for kids to go to the loo, we'd probably never get a look in again.

Handerpants

Yes. Quite literally underpants for your hands. They promise finger support, and are touted as a "solution to a problem you didn't know you had." 

Manufacturers Archie McPhee say, "Once in a generation a product comes along that redefines how the world works". Unfortunately this isn't it.

Snuggies 

The blanket with sleeves. You probably know someone who has one. You can talk on the phone, use your remote control, drink a mug of tea or even use your iPad (if you manage to get it off the potty). You can't do any of those things under a normal blanket.

But you'll look ridiculous. If you're okay with that then work away. 

Hair in a Can

Also commonly known as Spray-On Hair. While a nice idea for the follically challenged, in reality it doesn't work. At all.

It doesn't look like real hair. At all. It looks like you sprayed a synthetic material from a can onto your head. What do you expect is going to happen with 'Hair in a Can'? It does exactly what it says on the tin (can).

Diet Water

So I've been drinking fattening water my whole life and I never even knew it. Why didn't somebody tell me? Going on the premise that ordinary water makes you fat, the makers of 'Diet Water' claim it actually burns fat with peptides and the like. 

It wasn't too long ago that people laughed at the idea of putting water in a bottle and selling it. So as ridiculous as it might seem, Diet Water might.....no it's ridiculous.

What? Wait. No.
