Apparel-Related Entertainment System: Great Idea?

Patent# US 6782554 refers to an Apparel-Related Entertainment System that indirectly addresses the issue of how many t-shirts anyone can afford. This patent provides a way to change the slogan on your t-shirt whenever you want or change it back again, if that be your fancy. Think about how much you’ll save in terms of money, hangers and closet space as you read on for more information.

New Way to Attach Clothing: Great Idea?

Patent# US 6832983 concerns an Article of Clothing with a Novel Attachment Means and this is very true. If you have seen something like this before, let me know, as I would really like to talk to you, and if you haven’t, read on and join the club.

Abdominal Support: Great Idea?

Patent# US 6846220, which is also known as an Abdominal Support, was originally designed for pregnant women. It could conceivably (although not politely) be used to aid the obese as well. It has its good points and differs in several ways from other abdominal supports that have appeared on the patent horizon over the years. While reading this, if you can think of a way a beer holder can be added to the mix, will you let me know?

Food Containers That Respond To Sound and Light: Great Idea?

Contact Activated Sound and Light Generating Novelty Food Containers, which are also known as Patent# US 6796671, relate to a 2004 invention for those who like a bit of juice with their sweets. Read on for the fattening and shocking truth.

Alcoholic Beverages Derived from Animal Extract: Great Idea?

Patent# US 7037541 refers to Alcoholic Beverages Derived from Animal Extract. Would you be interested in creating beef martinis and/or chicken alexanders? The idea is not new and dates at least as far back as the Middle Ages when a drink called Cock Ale, the ingredients of which included light malt, raisins and a chicken, was imbibed by many non Tudors. This invention assures that you will never look at a chicken or duck the same way again even if you do see double once in a while.

Peanut Butter Pancake Batter: Great Idea?

Patent #US 6797310 refers to a 2004 invention also known as Peanut Butter Batter Pancake Mix. If you are thinking this should have been covered back in the days of the great American scientist, botanist, educator and inventor, George Washington Carver whose studies and teaching revolutionized agriculture in the Southern United States, you just may have a point. Read on for more details about the Peanut Butter Batter Pancake Mix.

Peanut-Shaped Prayer Cushion: Great Idea?

Patent# US 6810541 also known as the Peanut-Shaped Prayer Cushion may or may not have been divinely inspired but it is without doubt, very silly. In addition, it has also been invented before, which makes it even sillier, albeit the addition of a knee cushion makes it different than others of its ilk. Read on and pray, but for other things.

Neck Wrap/Brace Organizer: Great Idea?

The Neck Wrap/Brace Organizer for Holding Items and Belt Article Holder for Same (whew!) also known as Patent# US 6929164 addresses the issue of organization with a baptism by fire type of idea. There’s no question that being organized saves time, space and aggravation in our lives, but this silly patent has gone more than one step too far. Read on and draw a line somewhere in the sand…if you can find a pencil, that is.

Medical Tutorial That Bleeds As You Go: Great Idea?

In keeping with those all too life-like dolls that wet and cry for mama to change them, Patent# US 6863536, also known as the Endoscopic Tutorial System with a Bleeding Complication, is like a horror movie that simulates blood and guts at the expense of the viewer. Read on, but keep your distance, as there is a new and very crazy sort-of doctor in town.

Combination Handcuff Key and Writing Instrument: Great Idea?

Patent#US 6880369 also known as the Combination Handcuff Key and Writing Instrument dates back to 2005 and may be just the thing for law enforcement and security personnel. To others, however, it remains a very silly patent. Read on but….watch out for those cuffs.
