Odd Inventions





Have you ever invented anything?
I do it all the time, then later, maybe a year or so, I see it in the store or on tv.
Someone else takes my idea!
What things have you invented?

Captain Carl said...

Arrrr....those man boobs crack my ass sideways....the Capt needs a pair of those shoe umbrellas fer on his boat..........sometimes ay feel so old ay think ay invented time.........

Becky said...

I'll have to get back to you on that one, I can't remember ever inventing anything, anything worth noting at least...

Mr. Althouse said...

Nothing as clever as those man boobs. It brings a whole new meaning to "Necessity is the mother of invention!"

You invented umbrellas for shoes?

Lee Ann said...

Mike ~ I know, that is what people keep telling me! Maybe one day, all of you will see something really cool that I have invented.

Boo ~ Yeah, those are pretty odd inventions, huh!

Cappy ~ I know, those man boobs are something aren't they! Did you see the movie "Meet The Fockers"? Robert DiNero's character had created a man boob for nursing his grandchild. haha
We will have to find you some shoe umbrellas, to keep those boat shoes dry! Ah, come on now, you are not that old! You seem young to me ;)

Becky ~ I understand....you just can't tell until you have the patent, right?! ;)

MikeA ~ haha, that is a good one!

Angel ~ No, I cannot take credit for these odd inventions...I just came across them. Pretty strange, huh?

That first picture is my body condom idea!

Damn, I knew I wouldn't get to market first!

mojoala said...

The Hanky T-shirt. Think real hard on this one....

hotboy said...

I invented the Beer Monster Reduction Vehicle-Power It Yourself! The is really just wearing a lot of jumpers and plastic bags to sweat a lot. I don't expect anyone to steal this invention from me somehow. You'd find it hard to give away. Hotboy

I invented the notion of "homosexual chicken" (a game of chicken practiced by straight people) and like 8 years later I saw it on scrubs.

Also, I came up with "weapons of ass destruction" way before it was used as a joke on leno. Though I'm not proud of the fact that my joke ended up on leno.

Joe said...

Totally weird

Lee Ann said...

Andy ~ haha, that is definitely interesting!

Mojo ~Hmmm...a shirt you can blow your nose on?

Hotboy ~ I remember you talking about this...that is a good invention. I say anything that you make up that you can use is a good invention.

Jiggs ~ I haven't heard of that game. Now I am curious, maybe you will have to explain it to me sometime. Your joke was on Leno? That tells you that you are worthy of making his kind of $$$$ That is a good thing, right?

Lee Ann said...

Hey Joe, Good to see you. I know, I like to share the strange stuff whenever I find it!

BeckEye said...

I've never invented anything, but I'm quite sure I've come up with several TV show premises before they were finally created in some crazy boardroom.

Hi Lee Ann. I'm a keen recycler, so I occasionally invent a new use for something. E.g. when I went walking in the wilderness, I cut the bottom part off a couple of old high boots, to make them into ankle gaiters as protection against snake bites.

But what sort of inventing do you do?

Captain Carl said...

Arrr....meet the Fockers was a hilarious movie.......good call, Lass......let me know if ye find any wee umbrellas........

ticharu said...

I invented a song...

Ellen said...

Not that I really invented this, but I'll use my egg slicer to slice mushrooms, because it's faster than using a knife. Then (of course) I saw somebody like Martha do it, as if she had invented the idea.
Oh well, story of my life.... dollar short, day late and last in line......

jiggs said...

About the joke, I just wish it had been on letterman or better yet conan.

Neo said...

Lee Ann - OMG! The lady with the umbrella's for her heals! You gotta be kidding! I invented that! J/K

I had an idea for a cell phone that clipped to the ear; never patented it though. :(

Now they're making them.

*Sniffle*

Peace & Hugs,

- Neo

Lee Ann said...

Beckeye ~ Haha, I feel like that sometimes too!

Rob ~ Wow, that is inventive! I do currently have something in mind, but I cannot tell, just in case I get motivated to get a patent! You guys will be the first to know if it works out for me.

Captain ~ Oh, Cappy, I will keep my eyes open for some, I know they will be of great help to you!

Tich ~ Yes, you have, and very good I might add!

Ellen ~ Don't feel bad, I am sure you are not a day late....

Jiggs ~ Oh, that would be cool too. I like Conan!

Neo ~ Oh, don't you wish you had done something on your invention. Well, now you will know for next time, right!
