These items tickled my funny bone.
The Self-Stirring Mug from Hammacher Schlemmer, for those days when gravity is so heavy you can't even lift a spoon to stir the cream in your coffee. Or the honey in your tea. Tired of having your cocoa mix drift to the bottom of the cup? This little doo-dad has a tiny battery-operated propeller at the bottom that will churn the beverage within the cup and keep the mix ... mixed! It's got an on-off button on the handle and comes with a lid that keeps the liquid from spilling over while it is being churned. This is the ideal gift for the lazy coffee/tea drinker. And it's pretty too! Definitely one for MY wish list.

I first ran across the Rotating Ice Cream device on the Patently Absurd Inventions Archive where you can see a design/drawing of the inner workings of the thing. But it's gone beyond the design and imagine stage. You can actually buy one at Hog Wild for $10. I first thought this has got to be the silliest invention ever. I mean, how lazy can you get. But I can see where folx with arthritis or other handicaps might find this "just the thing" so they don't have to give up slurping ice cream in a cone! This also runs on batteries and has an on-off button, thank god. But my question is, does it have speed control? I could see my nieces getting a chuckle out of turning it on and letting ice cream fly all over everybody, happily exploring the world of centrifugal force. Aaah, to be young and carefree.
