Products I Consider Entirely Worthless.

There are a lot of products out there that just seem entirely worthless to me.  There was a Dilbert cartoon one time where a telemarketing Elbonian informed a caller that the requested software was out of stock, but would perhaps the caller care for a ceramic unicorn that wears pants.  When the caller responded affirmatively, the Elbonian said: “Really?  Your country has way too much money.”  These are a few products that remind me of that.

Home soda makers.  Really?  Soda is pretty cheap.  Regardless, you do not need to take a perfectly good beverage that you already have and carbonate it.  Carbonation doesn’t do anything for you.  Just drink.

– The Moshi Moshi Handset.  If you can believe this, this is a phone attachment for your phone.  Perhaps you should buy this if you can’t figure out how to hold your cell phone to your ear.  My wife wants one.

Cat Wigs.  I know you won’t believe me, but this is a real product.

Cupcake Makers. Of course, my wife wants one of these as well. However, we already have one. It’s called a cupcake pan.

Windows Vista. Unofficial slogan: makes you want Windows 7.  Enough said.

In short, the fact that these products are available for purchase in our country is a sure sign that our own decadence will end up killing us.  Don’t worry about doing anything to solve this problem.  It is obviously too late.
