I think they had the right idea when they began making sporks and including these hybrid utensils in packs of instant noodles. However, they left a lot to be desired, especially since they didn’t really do a good job when it came to actually scooping up soup or noodles.
I have a recurring nightmare about being attacked by some sort of creature with too many legs. I’m not sure if it’s from playing too many FPSes, or from reading about Cthulhu. Heck, maybe it’s from visiting the aquarium.

Transformers should always carry their own alcoholic beverages. That way they could drink a toast with Shia LaBeouf after they kick each others asses and wreck our cities with their huge bodies. If Transformers did carry wine with them, I imagine they would look just like this.

Are you a sharp dresser who isn’t sharp enough? Well, how about some real blades on your cufflinks? These cufflinks don’t just look like pocket knives, they are actually real mini pocket knives. At 7/8″ closed, they’re barely larger than the buttonholes they’ll be securing.
