Patently Obvious !

A friend of mine sent me this link ! What a surprise, to see all those things that get patented ! I was baffled to say the least.

You can read the entire piece here.

Here are some excerpts.

Plug for and method of patching a hole in a wall : Maybe not really crazy, but crazily obvious. This patent shows you how to patch a hole in a wall by cutting out a piece the same size as a pre-formed plug, and then inserting the plug and plastering over it. Isn’t that pretty much the way drywall is always patched??? Submitted by Ren Hoek.

Inclining coffin: I’m not sure why anyone wants a dead person sitting upright, but even the person who patented this says it is spooky.

Beerbrella: keeps the sun off your beer (no, I am not kidding). One would think that those little insulating sleeves would be much more effective, but perhaps they were worried about their beer getting sunburned.

User-operated amusement apparatus for kicking the user’s buttocks: I’m not sure if this is a comedy prop or what. I do know one thing however: someone has a lot of time on their hands.

Well, well, what can i say !
