The Wackiest Products To Keep You Cooking

I was supposed to have a new wacky products article this week, and I just got busy lazy. So I thought I'd put up this one whichI think was pretty good but not too many people saw. Forgive me loyal fans for not having something new. I will work on something good soon. I think I am in post-Holiday depression.

In the past few weeks, I have created a whole series of articles on different types of Wacky Products, but I have to say that this one is my favorites. Here is what I think are 13 of the Wackiest Products for Your Kitchen to Help Keep You Cooking, with choice quotes from vendors selling these products:

13. Too Lazy to Shake It Yourself - Automatic Salt and Pepper Shaker

It's tedious, it's tiring, and often dangerous...Luckily, we've discovered an amazing new product that takes the drudgery out of seasoning your food...self shaking salt and pepper shakers."

5. Combination Blender and Telephone

"If you want your friends to think you're insane, but quote you like God anyway, this is the appliance for YOU! The "ringer" is the blender motor,which pulses like a telephone bell, except angrier. To answer, pick up the pitcher out of the base and put it to your ear. Usually, the caller can hear the motor spinning down just after you pick it up." See it here. I used this for my Wackiest Products from Australia article but liked it so much, I had to use it here too.

4. Stick It Up the Bitch's Ass Towel Holder

"Dog End With Towel -The original cloth holder from slam, easy to look after, does not require taking for walks, cheap to feed, does not smell, won't shed hair everywhere, gets on well with cats, well - just ignores them really, and you can also use it to hold your tea towel..And remember.. Should the day come when, after a long and happy life, it is time for your faithful dog-end to make that final journey to the great kennel in the sky you will be pleased to know that his earthly remains (being made from the same stuff as yoghurt pots) can be fully recycled at your local recycling centre.See it here. I know it's not really a "bitch", but I thought the phrase was funny, so I put it in anyway. Artistic license, I figure.

3. Stab Your Old Boyfriend Knife Holder

"No knife holder has taken a "greater stab" at the theatrical than this specially designed "Ex" knife holder. Et tu, Brute?.. STORE YOUR KNIVES IN AN ANONYMOUS EFFIGY DEDICATED TO WHOMEVER YOU PLEASE! Take out your frustrations as you store your knives! See it here.

by Inventor Wannabe



I don't know about each an everyone of you inventor out there but for me a show such as AI is the best thing ever happened since sliced-bread. Because such a show is where us individual inventor get noticed and our ideas get protected and exposure in the event that big companies decided to steal our ideas, we will get support.

We all need to do our part by contributing our voices to the show even though ABC is not doing a dame good job advertising the show either on paper or on the internet. My suggestion is each one of us send email directly to Doug Hall and ABC producers letting them know what not only we enjoy the show but to let them know that with a little bit more exposure on the Internet getting their viewers aware of the upcoming show could yield a higher audiance each Thursday.

Also, had we got plenty of notice by ABC spending some money on advertising, I am sure there will be more real inventors that have real ideas that can change the world instead of the 12 right now where I am not too excited about jumping out of my seat and wait for it to come out to market so that I can buy.

My plan is to write my letter requesting that they should have at least one more season to try it out now that the viewers are aware of the show and the real good inventors with great inventions will show up to audition for the next show. Having such a show will be the only way for us to keep the momentum going if each one of us feel that we are indeed the inventor.

I know the person that makes the decision for ABC her name is something Wang, I don't have her email address so if someone has it please forward the email over so we all can email to her requesting for a second season. I am sure everyone knows Doug Hall email address by now so please email to him so that he can pass the message onto Peter Jones as they are best friends.

Our voices mean something to ABC and their producers. Let make our voices count, one viewer at a time.
