Dumb Ideas

Huffpo has a rundown of 15 stupid products. My beloved Hawaii Chair is represented. This has to be one of the funniest ads ever, watching the actors bravely pretend to work while this thing lurches back and forth.

The bed shotgun rack makes its obligatory appearance. I’m not sure why. I know a number of people who keep guns near their bed. I even know one person to whom this was useful, when she used it to chase a way a guy who had broken into her house. Same goes with the “Bumpits” thing. I know women who use similar devices (although not at $19.99 and not with such a stupid name).

I will say one more thing. $55 for the Kush?! The product is stupid (and exploitive) enough, but to charge that much for it? Good Christ.
