This Action Figure Transforms from Samurai Warrior to a Toilet and Back

If there’s one thing we can rely on Japan to provide us geeks with, it’s some very strange stuff. Take, for example, this action figure that transforms from a masked samurai warrior into a toilet. Yep. That’s what I said, there’s a Toilet Warrior action figure.

Of course the madness of Toywolf’s W-01 “Dirty Man” figure doesn’t just end there, no siree! This figure doesn’t just come with the typical action figure accessories like swords, but it comes with a roll of toilet paper, a plunger, and a pile of poo too! The latter is designed to fit perfectly under the squatting butt of the figure when in its warrior guise… or inside the bowl, when he’s feeling like a bathroom break.

The transformable figure also offers up the perfect spot for your other action figures to take a dump, and yes, we just got the answer to the question that nobody was looking for an answer to – superheroes poop too.

The bizarre figure stands about 4.75″ tall and should sell for about $70 when it starts to ship this December. You can find it for pre-order from a variety of importers, or over on eBay for about twice that price.

Japanese Man Marries Hologram

I don’t see what the big deal is. I’d love to marry Heather Graham. Oh, wait. It’s not Heather Graham? It’s Holo-gram?!? My bad. Anyway, the world that we live in today is pretty, uh… What’s the word I’m looking for? F**ked up. Yeah, that’s it.  Yes, according to reports, a man in Japan recently got married to a hologram.

35-year old Akihiko Kondo held a two million yen (~$17,600) wedding ceremony for him and his $1500 holographic wife, virtual reality singer Hatsune Miku. Sadly, Akihiko Kondo’s mother refused an invitation to her only son’s wedding. Frankly, I think that was the right call. In fact, none of Kondo’s relatives attended his wedding to Miku. Nevertheless, he didn’t let that stop him from having a formal ceremony at a Tokyo hall. Around 40 guests watched as he tied the knot with his wife who was represented by a doll. Why bother with the doll when you have the hologram? I don’t get it.

This guy isn’t the only one of his kind either. Gatebox, the maker of the virtual reality holographic box girlfriends/wives, has issued over 3,700 certificates for “cross-dimension” marriages. Seriously, WTF people?

Wait until the hologram divorces start happening. When you divorce a hologram they don’t take half of your things, they take all of your heart. *Sad face*.

Banana Surprise Fills Your Bananas with Other Stuff

Are you tired of adding extra flavor outside of your banana? Well, it’s time to get some flavor inside of your banana with Banana Surprise. On the other hand, if you want a different flavor than banana, maybe you shouldn’t have a banana in the first place? Right?

The Banana Surprise is kitchen tool for kids that not only cores bananas but also fills the fruit with any injectable flavor you want. All you have to do is cut the end off a banana, place it in the… um… Yumstation, push the corer into the banana, take it out, then inject your flavor inside. Maybe some jelly or chocolate. Then you have a banana surprise.

Sounds like a lot of work to me. On a side note though, a budding young nurse or doctor can learn how to use a catheter and have a cool snack at the same time. So I guess there’s that. No way I would let this in my house – makes my penis very nervous. In fact, this was a hard article to write with one hand covering my crotch.

Panasonic Wear Space Are Horse Blinders for Humans

If you have ever worked in a large, open office you know how hard it can be to concentrate. You have probably also thought that management treated the lot of you like livestock. Now Panasonic’s design house Future Life Factory has confirmed that office drones are nothing but livestock with horse blinders for people.

This ridiculous looking contraption is called Wear Space and is meant to create “psychological personal space” for office workers. This is created by using sides that stick out and block the weirdo sitting next to you from your peripheral vision. So, you don’t have to hear your fellow drones breathe or talk about what they did after work yesterday, Wear Space also includes noise cancellation tech, and bluetooth audio playback to help drown out the world.

In case you are thinking Wear Space is a joke, it’s not. In fact, it’s available for preorder via a Japanese crowdfunding campaign, and has already raised more than half of its 15 million yen (~$133,000 USD) goal. It will set office drones back at least ¥29,000, which is about $259 (USD). And no, your company won’t let you expense one. Your coworkers will make fun of you for wearing this thing, and rightly so.

This Ladder-Climbing Snake Robot is Creepy as Hell

How about a game of chutes and ladders? Uh, I mean snakes and ladders. Look, snakes are nature’s creepiest creation and robots are man’s creepiest creation. So naturally, scientists had to combine them both for maximum terror. While we’re at it, let’s make these robotic creepy crawlies climb ladders, cause you know, we wouldn’t want humans getting away.

Seriously though, a snake is a great design for robotics. They can slither in and out of small spaces to look for damage in structures or rescue someone trapped under rubble, plus they can handle all kinds of terrain. But just because we can do it, doesn’t mean we should. Because now researchers have taught robot snakes to climb ladders. There goes your second story escape plan.

Researchers from the Kyoto University and University of Electro-Communications have developed a robot snake that can bend and twist its segmented body, allowing it to slowly wrap itself around each rung as it climbs a ladder.

Good job researchers. Now, where are we going to go to escape robot snakes? I built a treehouse specifically to escape them and I just know that when I go up there next, now I’m going to find a bunch of robot snakes up there reading dirty mags, which is my job.

Play-Doh Drops a Deuce with Their Poop Emoji Playset

So this is where we are in the 21st century. No flying car in the garage, no robot serving me beer at home, no transporter beams… and now we have a toy that teaches our kids to play with poop. This is the world we live in, folks. This new toy is called the Play-Doh Poop Troop playset, and it’s the sh*t.

For $14.99, kids get twelve cans of Play-Doh, and four of them are brown naturally. It also comes with over 50 accessories so you can dress your Play-Doh poop up Mr. Potato Head style. According to the photo, there’s a dog turd too. How long until this is normalized so much that kids start playing with real poop?

Actually, I want to get in on this poop toy action. I’m going to market a new line of poop-themed toys under the brand “E. coli”. Our first product is a fast-paced board game called “Dire-Rhea.” Should be a real floater for our company, but you never know, it may just stink. We have new products every Turds-day.

Come on guys, don’t let your kids play with poop, fake or otherwise. It’s called dignity. Let them have some.

Bob Ross Waffle Maker Could Double as Ronald McDonald Waffle Maker

We’ve got Bob Ross POP! Figures, a toaster that will burn the painter’s image onto your bread and now, I present to you the Bob Ross face waffle maker. That’s right, now you can make waffles in the shape of Bob Ross’ head. I think we might be at peak Bob Ross right now. At least I hope so because this is getting ridiculous.

This electric waffle maker will cost you $40. It makes waffles that look a bit like the famous painter if he was made of flour and sugar. I gotta say, the waffles it produces look more like an angry clown to me. Like Ronald McDonald being tortured. So I’m calling any meal you make with this thing an unhappy meal.

How could you eat this? I would be terrified with every bite. It just looks like it is in complete agony. Like you have just cooked his very soul and trapped it in a waffle after he saw a bunch of happy little trees get cut down. I don’t want to look at that face as I eat. As it is, I’m off waffles for a while after seeing this thing. I just can’t.

I’m sorry Bob. You deserve so much better.
