These Odd Inventions Are Equal Parts Crazy And Genius. Where Can I Buy These?!

It takes a lot of creativity and effort to come up with a completely unique idea. After all, throughout history, people have been attempting to better themselves and their experiences with new inventions. There can only be so many original thoughts. The inventors of these strange products, though, found a way to create something new. Most of what they created seems a little insane, sure, but it’s also genius. Why wouldn’t you want an umbrella for your dog?

1.) A scooter stroller. Taking your baby on a walk just got awesome.

2.) Rough day at work? Use this tie flask.

3.) Prevent perverts from hitting on you, ladies, by wearing hairy leg tights.

4.) Is this a door… or a ping pong table? (It’s both.)

5.) If you REALLY hate rain but still want to be able to see…

6.) Let your baby clean your house for you.

7.) The arm pillow is for those people who want to cuddle, but may not have anyone at the moment.

8.) Drink your hot coffee AND iron.

9.) Working out is for losers. Shape your flesh with this piece of metal instead.

10.) Don’t allow Karen to steal your lunch at work ever again.

11.) Keep an eye on your waist size with this belt.

12.) This cutting board collects crumbs for you (and the birds).

13.) This is how you play Game of Thrones for real.

14.) Don’t have a beard? Buy one.

15.) This sleeping bag has legs and arms, just in case you need to fight bears in the night.

16.) Make muzzling your dog adorable.

17.) Never let your dog (or Gremlin) get wet.

18.) The Ostrich pillow can help you nap anywhere.

19.) It’s like a bike, but without all of that sitting down.

20.) Serving pizza is now 25% easier.

21.) Make sauce. And MUSIC.

22.) An umbrella water gun… just … because.

23.) Don’t chew on your pen caps. Use your pen caps to chew.

24.) Corners are no longer your picture’s enemies.

25.) Keep water out of your baby’s eyes with this bonnet.

26.) A piano doorbell (warning: probably annoying).

27.) The full body umbrella for the hydrophobic.

28.) Be a rockstar in the shower with this mic sponge.

29.) Don’t forget your kids. Forget-me-not mittens!

30.) Never trip over toys while going to get a block of cheese in the middle of the night. Use slipper lights.

No one would blame you for buying all 30 of these awesome products (especially if they were included in a Sky Mall catalog on a 4-hour flight). They may be a little weird, you may only use them once or twice… but these inventions are kind of brilliant. Share them with others.

Power partly restored on East Coast; Twitter users rejoice, mourn

http://twitter.com/#!/tobyharnden/status/219328094299889664

Twitchy told you yesterday about the violent storms on the East Coast that left at least 9 dead and millions without power.

In the wee hours of Saturday night and early Sunday morning, storm victims tweeted their relief and excitement as the lights came back on in their various neighborhoods:

Was just awoken by the jaunty music of some bad, off-brand cartoons on the TV. Hooray! The power is back! Now for some AC-assisted sleep…

USA Freedom Kids arrive for Donald Trump’s ‘alternative event’

All of the cable news chatter over whether Donald Trump would capitulate and appear at the Fox News debate could have been settled by simply tracking the movements of the USA Freedom Kids. The trio of singers, who performed at a rally for Trump inPensacola, Fla., showed up in Iowa in costume and ready to perform at Trump’s debate alternative.

Anyone who missed the USA Freedom Kids’ earlier performance shouldn’t doubt for a minute that they very enthusiastically endorse Trump. An original song written for the Florida rally includes the lines:

Enemies of freedom face the music, c’mon boys, take them down
President Donald Trump knows how to make America great
Deal from strength or get crushed every time.

Just wait until the race is down to Trump vs. Hillary Clinton. She brings Katy Perry, you bring the USA Freedom Kids.

For robbing fans of autographs by enforcing a strictbedtime for the USA Freedom Kids? There’s no law against having cute kids.

Sorry, Joe. Maybe they’ll let you watch on TV.

A few years ago, Prince shuttered his website and declared the Internet “completely over.” But now Twitter employee Tatiana Grace confirms that the artist formerly known as “The Artist Formerly Known as Prince” will no longer be partying like it’s 1999.
