Nighttime flatulence be gone!

If your sleep is suffering because of a partner’s nighttime flatulence, look no further. The “Better Marriage Blanket” is designed with a layer of charcoal fabric to absorb odor molecules.

According to The New York Daily News, the makers ensure that the blanket “will save many significant others from having to tolerate those sudden bad smells that seem to just pop up throughout the night. No one wants to smell something so bad that it wakes them up in the middle of the night.”

Prices for this indispensable product range from $39.99 to $59.99.

How to make your etiquette teacher cry

If you ever feel the need to look like a four year old at a dinner party, try these finger food spoons. The spoons are available in sets of four for $7.99.

Perpetualkid.com asks, “Why should kids be the only ones having fun eating with their fingers?” We don’t know, but finger spoons definitely aren’t the solution.

Wrinkles be gone!

Want to get rid of wrinkles without Botox? Reiko Kazki, a Japanese Cosmetic Company, claims they have a solution: Kaduki Cut Design Tape. The tape, when applied to wrinkly areas of skin, apparently has the same effect as Botox injections. Three sheets are available for $4,725 Yen, equivalent to about $51.

Covering a whole body with tape sounds not only painful, but also pointless.

Divorced? Bury your feelings.

Really, really desperate people can now give their failed marriages the burial it deserves. Wedding Ring Coffins with personalized engravings cost anywhere between $29.95 and $39.95.

There are many other more reasonable methods of achieving closure for a relationship. But hey, to each his own!
