When Amazon started in 1994, Jeff Bazos set out to capitalize on the emerging fascination with the internet to create a bookseller that could reach across the nation and world. Nearly thirty years later, Amazon is one of the most popular websites and top e-commerce sites in the world and includes a massive inventory of products from electronics to food, clothing, and gifts.
In addition to creating and selling its own products, Amazon has become one of the most popular selling sites for third-party businesses to help expand their reach. Because of its popularity, it was probably inevitable that some people would use the site to sell some really weird and bizarre items. We’ve compiled a list of ten really weird things you can buy on Amazon right now. Let us know what you think of the list and what other strange things you’ve discovered on the site.
Poop Like a Champion Cereal
The breakfast cereal market is oversaturated with several big name companies controlling the majority of key shelf space in the grocery store. With so much competition, especially in the healthy foods market, it takes a unique marketing campaign to stand out among the crowd.
Perhaps one of the best names for a breakfast cereal belongs to this product. Not only is it honest, but it pivots on a novelty that makes you double back to make sure you really saw what you think you saw. Poop Like A Champion gets a 10/10 in our book.
CVS Receipt Scarf
If you’ve ever shopped at CVS, you know how ridiculously long and wasteful their receipts are. Their receipts are so notorious they’ve been the punchline for many jokes and internet skits over the years.
If you’re looking to make a statement, this fleece CVS receipts scarf is definitely one way to break the ice and start a conversation at your next social event.
Baby Mop Onsie
We love our children. Watching them grow and discover the world around them is one of the greatest joys in the world. But damn it, they’re masters at destroying our hard work at maintaining a clean home. And it’s not like they’re going to volunteer to help pick up their own messes when they’re done.
But thanks to the ingenuity of (we presume) parents who are sick and tired of cleaning the same messes, your little one can begin to carry their own weight around the house with this baby mop onsie.
Toilet Bowl Lights
There are so many ways to decorate a bathroom to make it more welcoming and comfortable to do your business in. Color-changing LED lights to illuminate your toilet bowl in a rainbow of different colors is definitely one of the more unique ways to do it though.
While we’re sure there are people who would see this as a must have for their restroom, we think we’ll stick with a punny poop sign instead.
Underwear For Two
Sharing with your significant other is a vital part of any healthy relationship, but there is such a thing as oversharing. Cuddles? Got it. Splitting a meal at a restaurant? Cool. Sharing a pair of underwear? We’re good.
This is obviously a gag gift, but we can’t help but think there are some people out there who would seriously use these as a way to get closer to the one they love … in a totally non-creepy way.
Are we alone in the universe? Statistically, it’s probably unlikely that Earth is such a unique phenomenon that it’s the only rock in the vastness of space to harbor life. But have any advanced civilizations comes to visit us? We’re not sold on the idea, but perhaps this $135 gadget can settle the debate once and for all.
Unicorn Squirrel Feeder
There’s a saying that just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should. And this unicorn squirrel feeder is proof of this concept.
We’re not sure how well this cotton product will hold up to the weather and constant gnawing from our favorite tree rodents, but with an average rating of 4.4 stars with 1,600 ratings, it’s obvious we just don’t have our hands on the pulse of what people really want.
Out of all the things we’ve listed so far, this is probably the first that made us ask, what’s the point? Even the CVS Receipt Scarf can keep us warm on a cold winter’s night, regardless of how ludicrous it looks. But a yodeling pickle?
We’re just going to assume there’s a niche market out there we’re not aware of.
Non-Stick Snack Finger Protectors
You’re munching your way through a bag of Cheetos and inevitably get your fingers caked with an ever-growing layer of cheese dust. What do you do?
Most people would lick their digits clean, taking delight in the remnants of their snack. But if that sounds more like a texture nightmare, these non-stick finger protectors might be worth the investment.
Pre-Fabricated Shipping Container Home
If you’ve been following the housing market the last few years, you’re well aware of how difficult it is to buy a home. But don’t worry, Amazon has you covered! For a mere $36,000 you can own your very own 40-foot shipping container tiny home!
It may be small, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up luxury! This mini house comes fully furnished and includes a bedroom, shower, toilet, sink, kitchenette, and living area with sewer, water, and electrical connections.
And those are ten odd things you can buy on Amazon right now. But with such an extensive inventory, we’ve certainly not listed all the strange and weird things you can get on this e-commerce giant. If you’ve come across anything else you think would be worthy of making this list, please drop them in the comments!
