Just a short list of the dumbest crap ever made (22 Photos)

  • HimAgain

    How come Farmville’s not listed?

    • ChrisDG74

      I will just assume you missed #22 entirely then….

      • HimAgain

        I’m not so sure that was there when I posted. at least thats my story Yep I totally missed #22

        • Lionhearte0@aol.com

          Wow, that was strange. I didn’t see it either, saw your comment, scrolled back up, and it was there.

          Here’s to you, vanishing&reappearing Farmville.

          I despise Farmville. #22 should be winner of the dumbest crap EVER!

    Headon, apply directly to the forehead.

      does that even work?

    OMG… F’n Flowbee? Only a beating from dad instilled more fear in a child than having your hair ripped out and butchered by a dull blade hooked to 110 volts and a vacuum cleaner.

      “It certainly does suck!”

      • Jon without the h

        Yeah, I would totally take the “Suck-Cut” over the “Flowbee.” When Wayne Campbell endorses something, you buy it!

  • aosux

    1) shouldn’t it be “Bumwiper” instead of “Bunwiper”
    2) someone told me that toe socks are the most comfortable socks ever, I just have never found any
    3) phone fingers should be called “thief fingers”
    4) what the hell is Jeff Foxworthy doin?
    5) that is all

    • Brandon

      They’re not socks actually; they’re a minimalist shoe used for barefoot running, exercising, kayaking, etc. They’re supposed to be quite good, as it’s much more natural than wearing a couple inches of rubber under your sole. Search Vibram FiveFingers for more info.

      • creepsareforkeeps

        Hey Brenda! Are you giving lessons on the interweb? “Search Vibram FiveFingers for more info”. Okay! Which one is the search button?
        Do you think that the people that have managed to find the chive have never thought of using search engines to find out more about something? It says the name right there in the picture. Do you really think people need such guidance?

      • HellHathNoFury

        I effing love Vibrams. If I’m not barefoot and cutting my feet up, I’m wearing my vibrams. It’s so much easier to climb and hike with your toes instead of solid shoes.

  • Armeno

    Ray William Johnson uses the same thing ;D

  • Chase

    Why is airborne there? It’s simply an immune booster packed with vitamin c.

    • http://rubberdogturds.wordpress.com RubberDogTurds

      Maybe because they deceptively market it as having therepeutic benefits and word it so it sounds like it prevents the common cold, yet the lawsuit against them proved “there’s no credible evidence that what’s in Airborne can prevent colds or protect you from a germy environment.” AKA you’re paying for an extremely overpriced vitamin

      • Drizzt

        The amount of Vitamin A in Airborne could be end up being toxic if you take as much as they tell you too.

  • Zach

    #20 seems very very out of place

  • Paul


    The Vibram’s are not dumb. If you enjoy CrossFit, then they are the best thing ever!

    I’d pull the Vibrams from this list.

  • Teehee

    That pair of spatula scissors should actually be listed as one of the greatest inventions ever.

    • http://rubberdogturds.wordpress.com RubberDogTurds

      i kinda agree, i wanna give em a try 😀

      • madamecursorla

        Yeah, that actually sounds like a good idea.

  • cj

    #7 they’re are running shoes. they work for me. less pain so not dumbest crap ever in my book

    • McBeastie

      Not dumbest crap ever in your book…but then again, your book is filled with sentences like “they’re are running shoes,” so you might not be the best spokesman.

    • cj

      typo my bad got over excited

  • McBeastie

    What kind of “stupidest crap ever made” list would be complete without listing this very website. A big glass for wine isn’t stupid and neither is a concentrated dose of vitamin C.

  • greenerblues

    Chive please do a Japanese “Chindogu” post…… there are entire books dedicated to the useless crap they invent!

  • Nagrom

    #16 is a bloody good idea.

  • Equalizer

    #9 – I want that umbrella and the model too…

  • wodensday

    Vibram Five Fingers are pretty far from the dumbest crap ever made. It differs from some of these other inventions. The V.F.F are extremely useful cross-fit training tools. They strengthen your feet and calves and create less strain on your joints. I see why they were considered, because they look funny, but not funnier than feet do.

    • workin_donkey

      I’m downright impressed that a guy that looks like Chris Farley would know anything about strengthening calves and feet. And who knew Chris Farley knew about any other kind of joints…

      • wodensday

        With Logic like that I bet you’re impressed often.

  • Big Bob

    #13 looks like it’d work well anywhere it’s not only raining but windy. Living in the rainy North West, you learn fast that an umbrella doesn’t do much vs sideways rain! It does look like a pain to get out of though.

    • HellHathNoFury

      Hi-dee ho, neighborino!

  • carrot

    The scam that is AIRBORNE still makes me laugh.

    Some of the products on here are pretty cool… I’d definitely try the sandals as I am a barefoot junkie.

    I am also all about the wine glass =)

  • flenin

    those scissors are INCREDIBLE

  • bodhi1990

    10 and 16 aren’t too bad, wouldn’t mind havin em

  • Floopa_Joopa

    I’m almost certain the guy in #4 is Javier Bardem.

  • Jess

    #15 same machine at the begining of wayne’s world , no?
    #16 I want one!!

    • aosux

      Again…”It certainly does suck!”

  • Rich

    I would actually use #14, since my golf game is sh!t anyway.

  • Matt

    #20 isn’t the stupidest things ever made. Airborne actually works pretty well.

  • jos

    Flowbe! Jajaja I still have one!

  • terry

    #7 is wrong the foot gloves are actually the best running “shoe” you can by. it forces you to run the right way instead of running on your heals which is really bad for your joints
