Crazy, outrageous....stupid?

Inventions...
Last week we had one of those door to door catalogues dropped on our doorstep.
They are always good for a laugh so I flicked through the pages, and I was not let down!
I picked out, what I thought, were the two craziest inventions.
Check out these unreal slippers! Now, why didn't I think of this? "Achieve the perfect haircut everytime"......?
Really, I think not.
Has anything made you really laugh lately?

I have a Yellow Pair of the Floor Drying Slippers - they're wonderful to wipe a little track on a wet floor, I bought mine from the $2.00 shop.

Unfortunately I don't have the sissors - I'll keep an eye out for them LOL!

I think we may have viewed the same catalogue. I nearly choked on my coffee last Wedneday morning when I was flicking through it & found those god awful looking 'slippers'!
I must have missed the page with the scissors on them, what a pity!!!

P.S: Penny Miller was the catalogue I think?

Thanks for sharing. Those are really funny! Especially the slippers. I think I must get myself a pair of those, just for the laugh factor!

Christine said...

That's how my nana mopped her floor, I do it with Lysol wipes for quick touch ups. I should have invented these - damn, I missed another one.

Hey the slippers might be good if they come in really small kids size. Buy a couple of pair, chuck them on the kids and let them run in the house every time you need your floors to be cleaned. lol. Just imagine how clean your floors will be. The kids will be shocked because you let them run in the house!!! Kind regards, Anita.
