Adding automobiles that have long been out of production to the list of "what were they thinking" products just goes to show you the author of this article had nothing better to do and is biased against gun owners, animal lovers, single people that love electrical gadgets in their kitchens and want a quick and easy lunch, among other things, and must have been having a 'hormone flux' when she dreamed up this so-called article.
Liz Weston is, imho, one of the worst 'journalists' I have come across in ages.
I will grant that a few of the products on this list are a joke, like the hair thickener spray, shake weight.
But apparently Liz didn't even bother to do any research at all on these products.
Cat toilet training kit -- great idea, widely used, largely successful
foot undeez -- used by dancers everywhere
Aztek -- I'll grant you they aren't aesthetically appealing to me, but the people I know that have one, love it!
So I would have to say, to paraphrase the writer:
There's no shortage of contenders for the stupid-journalist crown, but Liz Weston manages to rise above her peers for sheer awesome awfulness.
The cat toilet training kit is a great idea, and most of the people I know that have tried it, had great success.
There's nothing 'gross' about this. And it certainly works a lot better than those 'automatic scooping litter boxes, that are just a money drain, and most cats won't use them because they are too small and too noisy.
guy that wrote the comments on these is an arrogant snarky jerk who needs to find some other outlet for what he perceives as his own awesome sense of humor -- because it isn't.
seriously? how theheck were they even allowed to made. what a waste of of materials and resources. I have some great ideas, more common sense!
people that buy this product obviously do not care if their pet is on the furniture, bed, etc. everyone is entitled to their opinion but please do not disuade people from purchasing this type of product based on what you appear to present as your dislike of animal hair.
