The Dumbest Thing Ever

Well, Christmas is officially over, and I’m knackered. I haven’t gone to this many parties and get togethers and what not in years. It was fun, but I’m actually kind of glad the craziness is over. I got some really cool stuff, but I’ll talk about that later… maybe. What I wanted to mention tonight before I thow myself into a coma with my iPod (ie, sleep) was perhaps the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.

The DUMBEST THING YOU’VE EVER SEEN? I’m sure you’re asking… surely you jest! I do no such thing. Okay, maybe this isn’t the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen (I do deal with drivers in Utah on a daily basis…), but it is certainly the dumbest product/ad I’ve seen in a long while.

Friends, feast your eyes on THE BLACK & DECKER LIDS OFF!

Yes, this “ginormous” contraption was created for the sole purpose of opening “those stubborn lids!”. I’m not kidding. Someone is actually going to plunk down the cash to buy this huge hunk of plastic and metal… taking up counter or cupboard space… soley to open jars. Now, I realise that jars can be a pain in the ass at times, even for strong people like myself (HA!). But this is ridiculous. I own a small plastic device that I wrap around the lid, which aids in the opening of my jar, should the raspberry jam decide to fuse the lid to the jar. Simple, cheap, small… a no brainer.

Now I’m wondering… if this is the future, will women ever need us men again?


  1. This reminds me of the bagel slicer i have. Which, i’ve never used. I won it. On the side there is a picture of a doctor. Claiming he works in a ER, and has seen too many cases of people cutting themselves while cutting bread.

    I’m not kidding.

  2. er, apparently i can’t type my own email addy…the above was from moi. cheers & happy new year!
