Worst product ever

Postby heiowge » Thu Oct 20, 2011 4:01 pm

New competition... Find a product sold that is completely unappealing to buy. Preferably with hilarious reviews. Here's my fav.

Read my review under the pen name of "Mr Liar".

This is not meant as a spam thread. Pretty please do not treat it as one. It is meant to show crap no-one in their right mind would purchase. Ta. :D

She needs a new keyboard, it looks like her caps-lock key is stuck.

I assume this is only found by people who trawl for the bizarre, judging by the items in the "Also Viewed" section. Then again, the horse head mask seems positively serious by comparison.

On which subject, I really liked this review of the horse head mask:

I absolutely loved this! Last year I dressed as Sarah Jessica Parker for Halloween, and this really helped pull my costume together.

I cracked up when I saw the title of the book on there "all my friends are dead" with a pic of a dinosaur on it.

I found this cool vid of some woman reading it. It's quite funny:

Hey, that must be a great book Heiowge. It has two exclamation marks in the title!! I'm going to do that all the time now!! Even when I'm writing something serious!! In fact I think I'll put double exclamation marks all over the next cover of LXF!!

Anyway, for a "worst product ever" thread I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the Jaguar CD. I mean, that thing was bad.

Hey, that's cheating!! You have to find the worst product ever, you're not allowed to create it!!

It is possible (albeit with lots of effort) to toilet-train cats, so that one might actually be useful...

Well, I was going to send you a crate of beer, but if it's the cat toilet seat you want, then I'll send that instead. :D
