Avoid awkward middle-of-the-night stumbles and feel like you're taking care of business at a disco with this oddly useful LED toilet bowl light. Not only is it motion- and light-activated, but you can choose from 16 colors and five brightness levels.

Ice Cream Lock

Price: $18 
Buy It
The Ben & Jerry's Euphori-Lock may seem absurd at first glance even for those hoping to keep their Chunky Monkey pints to themselves. But anyone who's gone to the freezer to indulge in their favorite flavor of ice cream and found someone else devoured it will see the value.

Dirt Cologne
Amazon

Dirt Cologne

Price: $19 
Buy It
More than just a gag gift, Demeter's Dirt Cologne Spray earns positive reviews from consumers for its "grounding" and "relaxing" scent. According to the company, it's designed to smell like "the dirt from the fields around the Pennsylvania family farm belonging to our founding perfumer." (A couple reviewers complain it smells too much like mosquito repellant, but we're not sure how serious they are.) If "dirt" is not the essence you're aiming for, the company also offers Paperback, Mildew, Kitten Fur, and Condensed Milk, among others. The best part is telling people what you're wearing.

Ostrich Travel Pillow

Price: $99
Buy It
Sometimes you want to escape for a nap, but you're on a plane, in a cab, or, you know, at work. The goofy-looking Ostrich Pillow is a solution. The cushy napping pillow slides over the head, blocking out light yet allowing you to breathe. It even provides convenient holes where you can place your hands while slumped forward for a snooze. It's a bit of a splurge considering the mixed reviews, but can you put a price on a good nap?

Edible Seasoned Grasshoppers
Amazon

Edible Seasoned Grasshoppers

Price: $8
Buy It 
Eating insects may not be everyone's idea of a good time, but grasshoppers are considered a delicacy by many, particularly in Oaxaca, Mexico, where they're known as chapulines. Seasoned with chili peppers, garlic, salt, citrus, and other spices, these dehydrated grasshoppers can be added to tacos or other dishes, or just eaten with a twist of lime and cold beer (as they're often enjoyed in Oaxaca instead of peanuts). The adventurous can find all manner of animals and insect snacks on Amazon.

Flatulence Filtering Underwear
Cheapism

Flatulence Filtering Underwear

Price: $50
Buy It
Paying so much for a pair of underwear may seem crazy, but these drawers are equipped with a carbon fiber material that dissipates unpleasant odors. If you've ever been embarrassed by the smell when you break wind, you might be happy to have these. Several reviewers say they're particularly useful for those with certain medical conditions. They're available for men and women and in a variety of sizes.

Bob Ross Waffle Iron
Amazon

Bob Ross Waffle Iron

Price: $40
Buy It
When standard square or circular waffles just aren't letting the joy of waffle-making sine through anymore, this appliance, depicting the face and inconic hair style of the "happy little accidents" painter beloved by pop-culture fanatics, probably will. 

KidsFunwares Dinosaur Taco Holder

Dinosaur Taco Holder

Price: $10
Buy It
You may not have realized you need a device to hold a taco (besides your hand), let alone a dinosaur-shaped one, but now you're wondering how you've survived without one. Reviewers point out that the TriceraTaco holder holds only two tacos, but we'll let it slide. The company suggests also using it for sandwiches, waffles, and more, and claims it helps promote "family unity" by getting fussy kids to stay at the table longer — oh, wait, this is for kids?

Pooch Selfie Dog Selfie Stick

Dog Selfie Stick

Price: $10
Buy It
Why should you be the only one having fun taking selfies when the dog could be joining in? This simple (and cheap) device clips atop a phone and holds a squeaky tennis ball to keep a pup's attention while you snap the best selfies ever. You can also use it to take portraits; just hope the dog doesn't try to fetch the ball with the phone attached.

Human Body Fat Replica
Amazon

Human Body Fat Replica

Price: $29
Buy It
This anatomically accurate replica of a pound of human body fat, designed for educational purposes, is undoubtedly a weird and startling thing to have around. But reviewers praise it for helping them lose weight, as a reminder of what delicious indulgences can add to the body.

Fred & Friends Banana Wine Bottle Stopper

Banana Wine Bottle Stopper

Price: $13
Buy It
When opening a good bottle of wine, we usually reach for classy accoutrement such as a decanter, elaborate corkscrew, or nice stemware. This hilarious banana wine stopper brings the fun to the wine club. Does it look weird sticking out of a fine vintage? Sure, but it's bound to get some laughs.

My Critter Catcher Spider and Insect Catcher

Spider and Insect Catcher

Price: $20
Buy It
We've all been there: A leggy spider is crawling across the wall and you'd like it gone without having to squish it. My Critter Catcher is a handy (if odd) device that allows an easy and gentle grab with soft bristles controlled by a trigger at the end of a 26-inch stick, so spiders can be captured and dropped outside unharmed. It can also catch moths, crickets, scorpions, and other large insects — though we're not sure we'd try it with wasps, as the product description suggests.

Fred & Friends Fred E.M.T. Insulated Lunch Tote

Organ Transplant Lunch Tote

Price: $15
Buy It
A great way to shock coworkers, the E.M.T. (Emergency Meal Transport) Insulated Lunch Tote is perfect for keeping food alive — er, fresh — while you enjoy a laugh. It also makes a good gift for paramedics, but maybe think twice before packing it for a kid; school administrators might not think it too funny.

Giant Gummy Bears Party Python

Giant Gummy Python

Price: $120
Buy It
You might ask yourself, "Why would I need an 8-foot, 27-pound edible gummy python?" The real question is: Why wouldn't you, especially if you have 450 gummy-candy-loving friends (the approximate number of servings) who would like to share it (and maybe chip in on the cost)?

Nostalgia Hot Dog Toaster Oven

Hot Dog Toaster Oven

Price: $17
Buy It
Do you need a device that cooks only one dish, and only hot dogs and buns, at that? Of course not. But life with more hot dogs can't be bad. Although some buyers consider this novelty toaster little more than a gag gift, other reviewers tell of happy kids and adults munching away on hot dogs that cook in minutes.

D-CLICK Cheeseburger USB Flash Memory Stick

Cheeseburger USB Flash Memory Stick

Price: $35
Buy It
Flash drives are useful for easy data transfers and storage, but they're also easily lost and can be confused if there's more than one in a bag or desk. Not when one's shaped like a cheeseburger, though. Other peculiarly shaped USB memory sticks from the same company include a finger, a bullet, ice cream, watermelon, and a throwing star.

Tinksky Bone-Shaped Ballpoint Pens

Bone-Shaped Ballpoint Pens

Price: $9
Buy It 
These bone-shaped pens actually write well, reviewers say, and might have comic appeal for medical workers ... or goths. Make no bones about it: You'll know who your true friends are once you start writing with these pens.

Instant Irish Accent Gum
Amazon

Instant Irish Accent Gum

Price: $7

No, we don't understand how it works (or if it does, though odds are on "no"). But blimey if we don't want to buy it anyway. Reviewers say it's a great gag gift and the packaging is hilarious.

Potty Putter Golf Game

Nic Cage Reversible Pillow Cover

Price: $10
Buy It
Few Hollywood leading men have made as many perplexing life and career choices as Cage. Here's a product that's puzzling enough to match that. It comes in 10 colors, and the back of it is "soft suede" — because these things matter when you buy a pillow cover with "Hi's" face on it?
