We try to stay away from scales (happiness is not a number, people), but this one caught our attention. Um, as if blindingly bright magenta shag couldn’t. Meet the Plush Size Yay! Scale, a device which doesn’t so much read your weight as it does tell you you’re great. Step on it and the needle points to words like lovely, hot, ravishing, and sexy.
So, would this mean that the fatter you get, the more awesome you are? Oh dear. Here’s the crazy thing about this kooky item that you’d think is a gag gift: It’s sold out and on back order. People are actually buying this and putting it in their homes (oh, the horror!). Although, we hear that Austin Powers put in an order for a couple dozen, so maybe it’s just him. [VoluptuArt.com]
