Hey Bruno, I Would Catch This (USB) Grenade For You!

As Bruno Mars sang, he'd catch a grenade for you, throw his hand on a blade for you, and he'd even jump in front of a train for you. You know he'd do anything for you; he'd even take a bullet straight through his brain, but he complains that you won't do the same for him.

Well, now you can return the favor and catch a grenade for the hunky crooner–a USB grenade by ThinkGeek, that is.

While the world has already seen its share of USB flash drives shaped as sushi rolls and soda cans, here's one that you can use as a prop to Bruno's hit song, "Grenade." It's a little bulky because of its shape, but I think it's cool to have something like this to store possibly explosive information although I probably wouldn't flaunt this gadget in highly public areas where other people could be prone to gross interpretation. Now that would be a mess of epic proportions.

Here are some features and specifications of the Grenade USB as listed on ThinkGeek:

  • Suitable for storing up to 8 GB of explosive data
  • USB 2.0
  • Portable and easy to use, plug and play
  • Dimensions: 32 x 32 x 57mm (approx.)
  • Weight: 18g 

It doesn't look like much of a grenade anymore once it's plugged in as you can see below. However, I think it's a nice thing to have around in the office, especially if your colleagues haven't seen something like it ever yet. Imagine the look on their faces when you just suddenly throw them a grenade and scramble out and away running from their desk? (If they have seen it, well, then you're playing the part of the fool, in this case.)
