Living in a hyper-capitalist superpower of a country is a very strange thing indeed. There’s all sorts of pros and cons that could be debated for days, but one thing’s for sure: it produces a lot of weird crap.
Everybody’s trying to make a buck, to find a niche, to create something that somebody somewhere will just BUY. And this ends up expanding WAY beyond the practical and even the luxurious into the just plain bizarre.
So here, courtesy of Reddit, are 10 things that probably shouldn’t exist, but they do anyway.

1. The Cat Poop Calendar
Because screw you, that’s why.
