Most Ridiculous Inventions Ever Patented


Cracked.com has just published their list of the 10 most ridiculous inventions ever patented. Of particular note, is Iowa’s own Flat-D Innovations’ flatulence pad.

Not to take anything away from Flat-D, which is quite wacky, but there are several inventions I feel should have made the list:

Artificial dog testicles

Apparatus for delivering a baby by centrifugal force.

The BoobieFlask (that is actually what it is called)

Sphincter training device (While I am not sure if my sphincter possesses the capacity to learn any tricks, I am fairly confident I have no desire to find out)
