You Need This Product! Not.

The USB Port "Humping Dog." http://www.wowzzers.com/product_info.php?products_id=463?GoogleImgAdUSBHD&gclid=CNuxquK8xJQCFQ4YQgodTXCxTA

From the ad:

"The world would be a very dull place if it wasn't for there being inventors out there with enough time on their hands to come up with something so stratospherically stupid as this, the USB Humping Dog. Well you've got to do something with your USB ports, so you might as well have a laugh with them. Pop this excitable pup into your PC's USB port and watch as he starts high-speed-humping your machine, yes really. This pint size version or our worryingly popular Humping Dog may not be the next best thing since sliced bread, but it's a lot funnier. USB Exercise Dog is also just as funny if not funnier!"

And the testimonial: "...the dog humping your laptop has to be one of the Greatest Inventions of 2007."

I thought this was a sick joke but apparently it's REAL and they're REALLY SELLING this stuff. I usually am pretty laid-back about how other people spend their own money, but seeing this ad got me on full blown "there are starving kids in China and people are buying this??" mode.

Twenty bucks. Then there's shipping and tax. No fair telling me the economy is bad if people have money for oversexed plastic dogs.
