I came across this vlogcast channel on YT the other day. The premise is set towards the comical for many of their shows, but this video lists 6 “weird” companies that exists selling/renting some things that many of you might have a hard time believing:
Some Truly Bizarre and Funny Businesses Here:
Lucky Break Wishbone Corp: OMG! Do people really, truly care about wishbones? So much so that they’d buy a plastic one?
Neuticals: Testicular implants for pets? I like this idea. My current pet came from the Humane Society (they insist on neutering) and I often feel quite bad that the poor fella has to walk around without all his man parts. Hey, he probably doesn’t know, but I do! Great business idea, but I wonder how many lawsuits they have to deal with due to infection, etc.
Whisperingwingman.com: Though it’s fake, you can’t tell me there aren’t people, particularly men, who wouldn’t pay for this service. I mean, it’s been done to (hilarious) death in movies and on television.
Imaginarymingle.com: Not the most creative name for a fake imaginary friend service, right? This one is totally implausible to most of us who’re half-ways normal, but you still gotta imagine there would be a niche market for it. How’s this really any different than keeping a pet rock around?
Werentgoats.com: “Weren’t goats”. Tee hee! Rental service for goats? Why not? If it gets the job done why not.
Idonowidon’t.com: I’m not sure I would recommend this business to anyone looking to sell a ring. You’d probably find more savvy buyers on Ebay or Amazon. Not to mention that if you get the ring appraised at a local shop, even a hock shop will give you top dollar for a second-hand piece. I went ahead and read some reviews about this place and it appears they low ball a lot of folks who’re looking to offload one of the worst memories of their life.
Angerroom.com: Share your comments on this one. I’ve gotten angry a time or two and wanted to break things, but I can’t see paying $75 to trash a room. This sounds like something that belongs on the Strip or in some hillbilly town beside the local bar.
eeehhhbay.com: Thank you, thank you, thank you that this was fake!
Eternalreefs.com: Can’t say much about this business. Makes a lot of sense from a niche money making standpoint, but I just don’t get our human need to make such a fuss about dead people’s remains. I don’t think that we’re necessarily “gone” when we’re gone, but I know I sure as heck won’t be hanging around inside a grave or in some “reef ball” at the bottom of the sea for eternity!
A Blog: Hey, many a ghostwriter has done this. There’s probably someone doing this somewhere in the world right now.
