It’s been far too serious around here lately, so it’s time to return to the ever-popular…
Tuesday’s Top 10.
Today we explore the worst inventions of all time (a huge shout-out to Sky Mall for providing me with a centralized location from which to compile this list). I’ve only got seven inventions listed, so I’ll need your help in the comments to finalize the top 10 worst inventions of all time.
1. Nuclear Weapons – We started by throwing stones. Then slingshots arrived. Then spears. Somewhere along the line, it became acceptable to have weapons that not only melt your enemy but destroy the entire earth. This doesn’t make sense to me.
2. End-of-the-World Predictions – Sorry Mr. Camping. Your contribution to this list is irrefutable.
3. CD Storage Towers – What a great invention…for about seven years. Now if you have one, you’re probably using it to hold little trinkets. Mine is in the garage – it’s a spider farm.
4. Animated Sharkbite and Raptor Hoodies – you have to see these to understand how ridiculous they look.
5. Spy Bug Detector – for only $199.95 you can obtain a state-of-the-art spy bug detector. I don’t even know what to say about that.
6. Eye Fatigue Fit-Over Glasses – that’s right, the sunglasses that fit over your eyeglasses. My grandmother had a pair of these that were so large she had to go sideways through doors.
7. Shake Weight – the reasons for this item making the list have been fully explored on Saturday Night Live. The Shake Weight has also been immortalized in this Tripp and Tyler video:
The shake weight makes its appearance in the first 1:30. Hilarious.
Do you own any of these and are brave enough to refute their inclusion? Any suggestions to add to the list?
