My Favorite Pins of the Week: The Worst Inventions EVER


Digging through the playground known as Pinterest this week, I fell upon a pin that seriously had me questioning what the hell the so-called inventor was thinking. Which got me thinking, what other inventions would make my Worst Inventions EVER list? After spending a few hours digging through pin after endless pin, I’ve come up with seven that are sure to make you say, “What the nucking futts?” A couple I didn’t pin because I’m pregnant and they made me want to barf: bacon-flavored soda, exhaust-scented candles and a nostril cleaner that scrapes the boogers right out from your innards. Ewwwww!

Here are the ones I could reasonably stand…

I dunno. I’m on the fence about the invention known as the horizontal shower. On one hand, I want to be that chick in the picture. Desperately. On the other hand, doesn’t the downward force of a vertical shower clean you better? I mean, I like unsual and contemporary, but I also like my armpits and hoo haw to smell fresh. What do you think? Yay or no freakin’ way? Pinner Lady ILP says nooooooo.


This is every guy’s dream come true. Part Hummer, part sidepipes, part…wait. Is there are freakin’ mini satellite dish strapped onto the front?!?! I need to find me one of these! Pronto! Or not. I think MyDotComrade agrees – I think.


If I were a venture capitalist and someone approached me about funding this invention, I would tell them to go fly a kite in stormy weather. Umbrellashoes have to be on every Worst Inventions list known to man. Unless you’re Mary Freakin’ Poppins, these babies are pretty pointless. Denise Hiam shares my outrage.


Meet the Vaportini Liquor Inhaler – invented in a dormitory by a  bunch of heavily intoxicated, college frat guys. Supposedly it’s for those who want to get drunk without … uh … drinking. Durrr. Thanks to Brittany Olander for pinning such an outrageous getup.


I refuse to comment on THIS!


Fire Box Traps Pranksters … And Anyone Else Who Dares Report A Fire! <insert evil laugh> “Hang on! Hang on! We know the fire is right behind you, but we’re on our way!” Really? Do you think said reporter is going anywhere? Celisa Hardesty you’ve opened my eyes to a whole new level of stupidity!


Hey! We can’t all be artists! For those of us who just cannot stay between the lines, here’s a lipstick template to have us looking great in no time at all! And this is no joke. Great find Funomenia!

    OMG! Those are hilarious! I’m with you on the horizontal shower – not sure about that one. As for the rest of them – wtf????

    Speaking of the Vaportini, I read an article that teens are pouring vodka in their EYES to get drunk faster than drinking. WTH?!

    Hysterical!!! Horizontal shower could be relaxing, although not practical…the rest of it?! I don’t even have any words.

    Okay funny story, a couple of weeks ago after my daughter had done 3 back-to-back performances, plus a dress rehearsal, of a variety show she does each summer to benefit pediatric cancer research and I had worked as a volunteer at all 3 shows we were exhausted to say the least! We desperately wanted to shower-her to wash off the stage makeup and copious amounts of hairspray-and yet we desperately wanted to go to bed! We each wished for a shower that would allow us to lay down although I did point out that the risk of drowning would be MUCH higher…

    I love Pinterest but if I even go on there for a split second, it’s like this vortex takes me and I can’t get out! There’s so much to see, so much to be inspired by!

    A horizontal shower? I don’t know about that. I could probably use the lipstick template….if I wore lipstick. Does it some in different sizes?

    This is why I stay away from Pinterest!
