Every so often the Huffington Post website has something that catches my attention. Today it was a list of what they consider the most stupid inventions for men. Where the heck was this list on Father’s Day?
So, I took a look at some of the things on the list, about ten in all, and yeah, some are stupid. Like fake chest hair for men and a video with crying girls, which is supposed to make men feel stronger. The video is made in Japan, so maybe guys over there get their jollies seeing women cry…..either that, or they don’t have very many entertainment options on weekends.
BUT! Some things on their list seemed quite logical. Well, at least to me. The ones I thought weren’t at all stupid are pictured here.
Take for instance that “Potty Putter.” Now if you’re into perfecting your golf game, this would be ideal for you. After all, look at all the time wasted on the potty doing nothing….um….except potting that is. So, when your other half tells you that you can’t spend time practicing in the backyard, just woof down two cans of beans, wait for nature to transport those ful -of -air suckers to the exhaust exit, propel yourself directly past her, and blockade yourself in the can………with your golf Potty Putter. Hmmm….this may give new meaning to “”two holes in one.”
(sorry, ya have to think about that one)
Then there’s the device that lets you pretend you’re just standing around on the golf course looking completely innocent while you’re actually taking a whiz. (also pictured) Now as far as I’m concerned, THIS is a great invention. Not only can you use it at a golf course, but ANYWHERE! Hey, if they can invent a golf club which lets you insert ol woody into the slot and whiz, why not a cane too. Then us guys can all walk around and whiz at our heart’s content….ANYWHERE!
“Hey, is that a leak coming from under your car sir?”
Then there’s the spray on hair stuff. Ok, Ok, I get it. If you’re going bald and have the beginnings of a landing strip for mosquitos on top of your head, this spray on stuff is supposed to give the appearance of hair. Wouldn’t it just be a lot easier to use up that old can of black permanent paint stored in your basement? Quick drying all-purpose latex. Sherwin-Williams Paint, we cover the world….and your head.
Finally, and I can relate to this invention. I don’t know what they call it, but I call it the, “never worry about putting the toilet seat down again gizmo” or “whizzing with no hands device.” I don’t tink I need to explain the concept of this contraption. It’s quit obvious. Aim and shoot.
Great invention except…um….who’s gonna clean it every now and then?
That would be my first question. My second question is, does this mean I have to get a water bowl for the dog? Rats!
So there ya have it. Stupid inventions for men presented to us AFTER Father’s Day. So all of us men missed out on them this year. How sad.
Oh well, there’s always next year. By then there might be even more great ideas. I can offer some suggestions for would be inventors.
Potty seats in vehicles built right into the seat.
Insect repellant that acts as glue so that when bugs land on you they get their feet stuck and you can just peel them off and throw them away. Hey, beats swatting them doesn’t it!
Miniature ear recorders. Insert this device into your ear so that it can record your other half’s voice for those moments when she say’s you’re not listening to a word that she says. Simply hit re-wind and repeat her conversation to her word for word.
“Dear, you said…blah, blah, blah, take out the blah, blah, blah, you never do, blah blah blah blah, etc”
Of course a warning should come with that last invention that says, “Warning, continual use of this device in the presence of a woman could result in death.”
Think I’d better quit before I get myself in hot water with some women’s group. You know how women always think they’re right.
Too late…….I’m in trouble.
