10 strange and funny inventions!

Every day I’m astounded by the ridiculous antics and inventions happening around the world.

Like the gronks in NZ that got caught getting jiggy with it at work because they thought the tinted window would hide them.


To make matters worse the guy was married with kids. I HATE cheaters. They are the lowest of the low.

Similarly I had to shake my head in disbelief when Mrs Woog used Facie to alert the world to the Selfie Toaster.

Allegedly for “just $75 you can have a very vague depiction of your face on a piece of toast”.

There’s a lot of people I’d like to burn to a crisp! Only kidding, I’d only slightly overcook them.


The world is full of strange and funny inventions just begging to be ridiculed.

Starting with the:

1. Head Mounted Toilet Paper Dispenser. I bet that chin strap gets uncomfortable!


2. The Lipstick Assistant. Now this is just creepy.


3. Pet Butt Covers. I’m more offended by what comes out of a lot of people’s mouths than the sight of a dog’s bum!


4. Privacy scarf. Again, CREEPY!


5. Anti-Pervert Hairy Stockings. I bet they’re super warm!


6. A Duck-Billed Protective Muzzle for Dogs. I bet these pooches are pretty ducked off!


7. Trainers Wheels For High Heels. Actually I could do with some of these!


8. The Lapkin. For messy eaters. But why jocks and not boxers, they’re a lot more palatable.


9. Bacon Condoms. Because that’s not weird at all.


10. A Pretend Seatbelt Shirt. The wearers of these deserve to be thrown through their windscreens.


Would you ever use one of these? If so which one?

See any other wacky inventions recently?


  1. Oh dear. I will never look at bacon the same way again.

  2. Oh boy what a list. I wonder where people get these ideas from.

  3. OMG – what a list of crazy and hilarious inventions! lol As usual you had me chuckling from the first line of your post (ok second line), eg the gronks in NZ getting jiggy! OMG how daft were they!

  4. Hahaha! Those hairy stockings. LOL. Seriously?

  5. LMAO these are hilarious I want that toaster that is so funny

    LMAO @ Anti-Pervert Hairy Stockings

    LMAO @ Privacy Scarf

    Have a weirdtastic week and don’t invent anything I would 🙂

  6. “where do you gett’m!!” em!
    weird alright!
    lol the anti pervert stockings
    cheers m:)X

  7. Bahaha… I had no idea half of these existed!! So funny the crap people come up with to make money. I reckon my hubby could use number 1 haha when he has hay fever.

  8. How does the dog go to the toilet with a butt cover? Bet it doesn’t look like a flower after that!

  9. Hi Emily,
    Bron from Maxabella directed me to your site and I’m so glad she did. Hilarious. where to start? The Lipstick assistant, toilet dispenser and hairy legs stockings – a perfect look for date night!

  10. Bahahahah!! Who thinks up these ideas??? Those pet bum covers……..

  11. My daughter could have done with the head mounted toilet paper dispenser when she had her recent severe cold. I think she went through three boxes of tissues one after the other!

    The other inventions – me thinks NOT!

  12. Haha! I love the dog bum cover. Hilarious… although I don’t think my puppy would find it that funny. Speaking of puppies, while I was in Japan for work last year I saw a guy carrying his dog in a ‘front pack’. I wasn’t sure whether it was just a baby carrier being used for a dog, or if it was indeed meant to carry a canine. After all, this was in Japan – home of the most wonderful (and weird) inventions! I even took a sneaky photo. 😉

  13. Hee hee. I never have to wear nice clothes nowadays but if I did (and I couldn’t wear my chunky platform heels) I’d SO need those stiletto training wheels.

    PS. That toaster is the perfect gift for the person-who-has-everything.

  14. Those are funny things =P

    I want the toaster though. It looks fun!

  15. It’s not that people invented them that worries me but that people would actually buy them. Hair tights to go with the hair shirt?

  16. I’d take a toaster, with the image of Jesus. I could make a mint on Ebay! The duck muzzle is funny, most of them have me shaking my head. Like the privacy scarf, what the?!

  17. I agree, that story out of NZ is all very very wrong.. so not right!
    And these inventions *shakes head* the bum cover, seriously, people have too much time on their hands LOL.

  18. OMG…
    Not sure how people come up with these things.
    They are hilarious…

  19. Bahaha! These go from the sublime to the ridiculous! The pet bum covers and the hairy tights are my favourites. Personally I think the selfie toaster is a snip at $75! Just sayin’!

  20. They’re all soooooo creepy!!! Ridiculous!

  21. I don’t even know which one to comment on.. the weird lipstick aid, the privacy screen for your computer (how hot would that be), those stocking (WTF?) or the butt hole cover on your dog. All I can say is you have made me laugh, yet again.

  22. Is the reason our toasters weren’t rank with the other ten is because to do so would place the amateurs with the professionals? Just wondering…

    • As you can see from the above comments the toaster is obviously an invention that is on the top of many people’s wishlist – including mine! It’s a genius, albeit unusual invention. And to answer your question the reason your toaster does not fall into the category is because I’m sure more than 5 people have bought one, unlike the other 10 (amateur) inventions. Thanks for reading and here’s to the success of the selfie toaster. You can read here more comments about how popular this idea is…. https://www.facebook.com/whynothavealaughonme/posts/431097953712702

  23. I’m intrigued by the toaster. Are the photos interchangeable. I want a different face on my crumpet every day. (Although my beloved Fassbender would get a high rotation)

  24. Hello Em!
    I’m finally getting around catching up on blogs today… I just wanted to tell you that I loved your newsletter. It was my weekly laugh. Will you be sending it out again?
    As for these invention, I think they are all very creepy… But these stockings… That’s just horrible…

  25. Hi there! I just wznt to offer you a hufe thumbs up for the great info you have right
    here on this post. I’ll be coming back tto your site for more soon.

  26. oh my gosh, hilarious post! Not surprised I found it on your ‘most popular’ list. I think I actually need a Head Mounted Toilet Paper Dispenser to deal with my almost constant hay fever, but I do not need the anti-pervert stockings. My legs look pretty much like that most of the time these days 🙂 The duck billed muzzles cracked me up. I was reading my daughter a Dr Zuess book the other night and there was a creature in it called a duckdog :))
