So, how weird is THAT?

Steamer.

The Hudspith Steam Bicycle. Not sure I’d like that much hot water so close to those important little places, know what I mean? Could give a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘blowing off steam’, of course.  Present performance is about 8mph sustained speed, 6 – 8mpg of water and about 60 – 70mpg of paraffin (at a guess). Such a machine is never truly finished, and most times I run it, I think of an improvement to make for…

Bullet-proof Monk.

The Armoured Monk Mobile. This bullet-proof monk carrier in Thailand is a poignant reminder of our brave new world, isn’t it? Not to mention the fact that many of them now have to wear bullet-proof vests – in matching orange of course. Tsk.

Leitra Velomobile.

The Leitra Velomobile. A 21st century pedal powered shopping cart. The inventor has clearly never heard of Clive Sinclair’s doomed C5! And at €3,950.00, perhaps it’s just as well.  The LEITRA is a new type of non-motorized vehicle designed for commuting, shopping, distribution of light goods, recreation and touring. The international term for this type of vehicle is a velomobile. It is fast, but not designed specificly for racing.

Rock it, man.

I would so like to drop a measly $1.5 mil to hire Sir Elton Bomb for a private concert for me and a couple of mates. Oh yes I would. Oh yes. Hour and a half only though, and travel and production expenses are not included, so…cough…that might bump the price up a tad.  This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity allows the purchaser and up to 500 guests to experience this phenomenal singer, songwriter, and musician in a singularly intimate performance: an hour-and-a-half of…

Moss covered.

Why oh why on earth would anyone want to spend $6050.00 on a ticket to see a bunch of geriatric has-beens prance about making fools of themselves on stage? Pathetic. Hope they keep the oxygen tent primed backstage.

Rock n’Roll Fantasy.

The Rock n’ Roll Fantasy Camp. So let’s see. I plunk down $8400.00 of the jolly green folding kind, and in return I get 5 days and nights hanging out in a camp with an assorted bunch of rockers from bands like Kiss and Bad Company, and then at the end of it all get to play live on stage with Roger Daltry of The Who, Cheap Trick, and fellow rawk hall of fame refugees? I’m agog, agape and aghast. Now where did…

Easy Boat.

The Easy Boat. Looking suspiciously like an upside down plum pudding (well OK if you squint a little…), this is actually a clever idea. A boat with an underwater view. Oh yes, and did we mention we think it’s a pedal boat? Uh huh.

Truck stop.

Colani Trucks. Weird huh? But then again, it would be a boring world if everything looked like a Volvo, wouldn’t it?

Carnivore garden.

Carnivorous Creations is a table top garden stuffed full of meat eaters. Probably not the best gift for your tofu loving grandmother. And if you do give her one, do keep checking back to make sure she’s OK. You know, just in case. $21.98.  Carnivorous Creations feature 10 plants that trap, drown, starve, or paralyze insects and eat them! The plants included are the Venus Fly Trap, Cobra, Yellow Trumpet, Hooded Pitcher, Sweet Trumpet, Purple Pitcher, Pale Trumpet, and 3 kinds of Sundew plant….

Animal crackers.

Animal Gauze Masks. $10.00 says you’re paranoid, kooky and growl if disturbed during feeding.   The very sterile looking white gauze mask inspired us to make it more cheerful and funny while still serving its purpose. This new mask is no longer masking, but transforming the part of the face it is hiding, integrating face and mask. Currently there are 5 types of masks (pig, tiger, jaguar, monkey, gorilla) are available.

Taxi!

Taxi driver. “Hey Rafael, I have a plan.”“What, another one?”“Sure. But this time it can’t miss. We get hold of a bright blue jalopy, convert it and sail to freedom.”“Ay, caramba! You surely are a genius among geniuses”

Tea for two?

An 18th Century Tea Chest? For $750,000? Reserve not met? Hah, the curse of the Brits lives on. And notice, hilariously, ‘will not ship’. Arf!  Up for bid is an extremely rare 18th century tea chest that is reputed to have been thrown into Boston Harbor during the famous Boston Tea Party of December 16, 1773. One of only three known surviving tea chests from this historical event that triggered the Revolutionary War for independence.
