Uranium ore by Images SI, Inc. is said to have low radioactivity and is therefore license exempt. U.S. consumers have purchased 18.6 million pounds to date.
The tradition is to break a wishbone. However, Ken Ahroni was not one to underestimate the absurdity of this Thanksgiving tradition and began manufacturing plastic wishbones for families who wanted more than just one per turkey.
Turns out, hoping for things that won't come true is a whole family thing and not just reserved for mom and dad. Over one million units have been sold, and the item has even prompted a lawsuit — and as we all know, that's when you know you've really made it.
Perhaps the greatest thing about the Ped-Egg is that it collects all of the skin shavings, saving the consumer the clean up time and embarrassment of doing so.
4Cards Against Humanity
In Cards Against Humanity, a player chooses a black card, reads the question, and then everyone answers with their funniest white card. This simple concept was so successful the company announced that the product has sold out as of January 2014.
It's a good thing that there's Doggles – goggles made for dogs. Doggles were created by Roni Di Lullo for her sunlight sensitive pooch. Ever since then, people have been gong barking mad for them. Even the US military bought 120 pairs for a presumably war-related expense.
At $.99 a pop it was downloaded 113,885 times in its first 2 weeks. It may be impossible to know how much the ifart app has been downloaded since, but based on the amount of people who find fart jokes funny it's gotta be in the millions.
From Bart Simpson to Chia cats to even a Willie Robertson (Duck Dynasty) beard, there are numerous chia pets out there – perhaps in more shapes and molds then you'll ever know. If you're tired of making green afros on celebrities (and who would get tired of that), you can still eat the seeds, which double as a popular health food snack. You can by your Chia pet for only $19.95, commercial jingle not included. (Ch-ch-ch-chia!)
8The Pet Rock
The Pet Rock was the brainchild of ad wizard Gary Dahl. Dahl was tired of traditional house pets and decided to create a product based almost solely on marketing, with no innovation.
Maybe it was fitting that the height of the Pet Rock's popularity was 1975, a year of counterculture absurdity. The 70s were perfect for the launch of the decorative mock pet, which — believe it or not — did no tricks whatsoever. During that time, The Pet Rock sold 1.5 million units.
The Pet Rock became available again in September 2012, with the newest models featuring USB connectivity. The point being…er, nothing, once again.
With 20 million Snuggies sold, people started wearing them out in public – to sporting events, aboard airplanes, and even inside pubs. That people wearing Snuggies look like a bizarre cross between a member of the Illuminati and the Cookie Monster doesn't seem to be a problem.
Sticky Buddy is a normal product but what sets it apart are the rubber protrusions, also called fingers, that have the ability to remove hair out of fabric.
