Rubber Prop Cast Iron Frying Pan

Yep, it looks like a heavy cast iron frying pan but it isn’t. It is a rubber prop that weighs just 8-ounces. Not sure why I just bought this. Oh well. Get yours here.

This product caught my eye because of the neat/silliness of it all and the amazingly bad English. Whether you drive for Uber/Lyft or just want to pimp the interior of your car this one is worth a look.

Here are a few of my favorites; gorgeous...

Let me back up a bit. If you haven’t read the news about Amazon’s Ring camera creepiness, read on. (more…)
