Ninja Coat Hook

Ninja-Hook-1-High-Res-RGB-1800x1800px1

From the website:

................................

Fed up with the flat-packed MDF birch veneer-finished world we live in?

If so, then stop accessorizing your home with uninspired IKEA functionality and put some punch back into your place with our Ninja Coat Hooks.

Ninja Coat Hooks will transform your hallway into the scene of a Shanghai back street stand-off.

Each metal Ninja Coat Hook has one corner cleverly engineered into a screw, which allows you to fix it securely to your wall or door whilst making it look like it has been hurled from the hands of a deadly Ninjitsu assassin.

You will certainly cause a stir with your guests as they go to hang up their coats, as each of our Ninja Coat Hooks has been designed to look like the real thing, right down to the razor sharp-looking edges — which are of course nice, smooth, coat friendly hanging points — but you don't need to inform your guests of this fact.

So stir up fond memories of Big Trouble in Little China and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and add some cutting edge deadly design to your home.

Measuring Tape Toilet Roll — "Measure at your leisure"

Measuring-Toilet-Roll-low-Res_1

Sorry — not going there.

Measuring-Tape-2-High-Res-RGB-1800x1800px1

In the wrong hands this could be trouble.

Thankfully, that's unlikely to be a problem around here.

From the website:

.................................

Does size matter?

There’s only one way to find out: measure it!

No matter what you decide to measure you'll be relieved at the thought that everything within reach of the toilet can now be catalogued accurately.

How many sheets does it take to get to the door?

How long is your hand?

How long is the plunger?

For those of us who take particular pride in our toilet activities, or are simply looking for something else to do while on the pot, the Measuring Toilet Roll is certainly an essential.

Monty Python's Eric Idle once said that "... one way of measuring the freedom of a society is the amount of comedy that is permitted..."
