Who doesn’t want to try Mac & Cheese Candy Canes? Me. Might make a good white elephant gift or gag for a friend. “Peppermint is so last year. And the year before that, and before that… Trade in boring traditions for flavors that you love.” ...

Yep, welcome to 2018 where kids get toys that simulate playing with poop. I just bought two sets. This is the Play-Doh Poop Troop Set ($39) which allows kids create their own hilarious poo characters out of squishy play-doh. “Make creations like poop monsters or the famous emojis with the poo mold or by squeezing them from the decorating tool.” This poopy Play-Doh set comes with 10-cans of doh, 4 of which are brown in color. ...

Starting this off by saying that there are plenty of Google products that I like very much. I am an avid user of the Nest products, search engine, email, etc…  That doesn’t mean I won’t be looking for alternatives if they don’t keep turning up the creepiness. Google’s latest bout of creepiness and overreach are related to the latest version of Chrome, Chrome 69.

Tesla Autopilot Buddy

This magnetic gadget tricks the Tesla Autopilot system in to thinking that the driver has their hands on the wheel. Why would you want to do this? Well, the short answer is so that you can let the Tesla do the driving without having the autopilot system shutoff when your hands aren’t on the steering wheel. No need to over think this one, it is a bad idea. I hope this crafty inventor has a good legal team.

If you re still sold on this overpriced gadget ($199) head on over to the manufacturers website. Video of this device in action after the break. (more…)

There haven’t been too many exiting gadgets hitting the market lately so it has come to this – Earthworm Jerky ($15). Yep, it is a real thing. Perfect for your buddy who prides himself/herself on eating just about anything. The earthworm jerky is from Rhode Island and is seasoned with red chili, lime, sugar, park, garlic, and onion powder. Umm, no thanks. ...

Maybe the title should be “do your job”! I am sure pilots are doing all kinds of things in the cockpit that would scare passengers if they only knew. Examples include; playing video games on their iPads, reading newspapers, and taking turns to get some sleep. I get it… but there is an old ancient Estonian saying that goes something like this – “You can pee in the swimming...

This is the perfect gift for your enemy or friend (with a good sense of humor) that likes doing jigsaw puzzles – the Micro Pure Hell Jigsaw Puzzle ($20). These tiny puzzles (around 10 x 15-inches) come in black and white and are made by Beverly of Japan. The part I find hilarious is the bit...
