Let's Have a Half-Assed Contest--What the Hell Is This Product?

























Pretty ambiguous device, isn't it? Skymall has dubbed this impulse purchase"Can Be Reused," which does little to explain its true nature, although we do know that it can be used more than once, a necessary attribute of any uneatable product with a $150 price tag. A little sleuthing will lead you to the inevitably anti-climatic answer, but it might be more entertaining to forge a different identity for this suction-cuppy, corded box here on SPR.

So, what say you? Leave your guesstimate (snarky description optional but encouraged) in the comment section below. A winner will be announced at some point next week, perhaps on Friday.

Go nuts. We don't reach out to the readership that often.

it's a mood reader. it reads your mood. you stick the suction device on your eyes, and it tells what kind of mood you're in.

Remember when you put your annoying baby into a glass-covered crib because it wouldn’t stop crying and snoring? Dry your eyes, and take advantage of our new drool-proof microphone technology. The Sucky-Sucky Baby Monitor 3000 will let you keep track of your annoying infant, without having to let it out of its cage.

This product confirmed for me that the douchebag living on the other side of my wall, in the apartment across the hall, does in fact listen to music with a very loud base!!

You too can practice the religion you've created at home, using this ultra-adaptable "meter"! It ticks and beeps and lets you know when it needs new batteries. The suction cups can go anywhere you might want to take a "reading": forehead, chest, genitals, or bag of sand you claim is alien dust! Once you're confident it works, hold it over your friends until they believe you - and make them buy one of these meters for 19% of their income!

Oh, I actually know what it is, but fuck you if you think I'm going to tell anybody.
