Broomba autonomous broom only sweeps your wallet clean

Posted in Holiday by Conner Flynn on July 21st, 2009

Broomba autonomous broom only sweeps your wallet cleanNow calm down Harry Potter fans. You won’t be able to play Quidditch on this thing. And no, you don’t invite this into your home in order to entice your witch wife to take a long ride far away from you. In fact, this broom won’t even clean your floor like a Roomba.

It will just scare guests next Halloween, by moving around the room to “spooky” music and “frightful” cackling sounds. Only $39. When it drives you so nuts that you snap it in half over your knee, I imagine it will feel very satisfying.

Microwaves play Jingle Bells

Posted in Holiday by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2008


Christmas is almost here and it’s time to celebrate. And by celebrate, I mean let’s watch a bunch of Microwaves, 49 to be exact, play “Jingle Bells” with their timer bells. Of course, the timers all had to be set manually, but they did a good job considering.

I picture this 49 microwave contraption rigged to the chimney somehow, as a Santa alarm. It could go off just as Santa is entering your home and cook him up some nice quick meals at the same time. He’ll surely reward you with an extra present or two.

Skull Beer Funnel for Halloween drinking funIn keeping with the spirit of the season, here’s something to help you get drunk that also doubles as a creepy prop. It’s a Skull Beer Funnel with spinal column attached. If you’re the Predator, just pass on this one and go rip your own from some human. Humans, it’s illegal to do what the Predator does, so don’t do it. Buy this instead.

Blood Puddle pillows are perfect for HalloweenThe blood puddle pillow is the ideal way to start your Halloween morning. I would suggest substituing this pillow for your regular pillow while your wife is sleeping. She’ll wake up to a surprise and start Halloween with a nice healthy scare. It’s not everyday she wakes up next to you laying in a puddle of blood.

These go well with the Roadkill carpet. These are made by artist Keetra Dean Dixon. And though it may be a bit late for this Halloween, there’s no reason you can’t be ready for next year.

Paul Pape Designs now offers chocolate Mii’s for a very special and very geeky Valentine’s Day.

Blow on an ornament, turn off your Christmas tree

Santa Magic Blowout Ornament

How many times have you wished that you could turn off all of the lights on your Christmas tree just by blowing on an ornament? Surely I’m not the only one. Well, my prayers at least, have been answered. In years past, you had to unplug the extension cord from the wall or flick the switch to off. For some people that’s alot of work.

Enter the Santa Magic Blowout Ornament. Once you have Santa wired into your lighting system, just blow into the ornament to turn off all the tree lights. To turn them on again just push the button on the chimney. I know, it’s one of those gadgets that on one hand is lame, but then again it does make it easier to turn your lights off.
