Dogs Can’t Vote

Hello IGWers,

This is hilarious. A Seattle woman has registered her dog to vote. In fact, according to the article she has even bragged about it to her friends. To everyone’s dismay, Duncan the dog was unable to actually vote even though he was registered. Hopefully the rest of Noah’s ark doesn’t come to the polls anytime soon. We have enough trouble getting people to vote in the U.S. why are we registering animals?

Innovation Gone Wrong in Action

Hello IGWers,

Walking through the city the other day, I saw a real funny site. That was of course a mom walking not one but two children on leashes. There are lots of damaging things that can happen to kids when they are young, but being on a leash must move a kid to the top of the list. I hope the kids didn’t escape. What would they be without leashes? Normal?

True Innovation Gone Wrong: World’s Tallest Man

The Guiness Book of World Records has announced the tallest man in the world. The unofficial tallest man is 8 foot 5 inches tall. The second man from Mongolia is 7 foot 8 inches tall. The book has stated that the second tallest man is now the world leader. In my book, if you are not the tallest man how can you win the award? Very confusing. I think that this weird. So can you be the world’s best golfer and not actually be the world’s best golfer. What a stupid thing.

I hope the weird records violations cease.

Sleep Number Expert is Not Don Juan

Hello IGWers,

I went to the mall the other day and low and behold, the Sleep Number attendee was sitting around. I know that attendees at a number of stores sit around, but this wasn’t the BK kid slacking off or the kid from Mickey Dee’s just hanging around in the back of the store. No, the Sleep Number expert was sitting on a bed with a variable sleep number and he was bouncing up and down giving off the Don Juan/Hugh Hefner vibe. I tell you I don’t care if both sides of the mattress are 0 or are 50. This scale in no way reflects your manliness. Frankly, selling beds is one step above Victoria Secret in the manliness scale.

So, next time you think that you are going to attract women because you sell beds step back. You are not Don Juan. You are the Sleep Number expert. I know Sleep Number uses live people that is only because live bears and sheep just aren’t good with customers.

To the Sleep Number expert not over-doing it any more!

Fruit Display on the Menu

Hello IGWers,

I have been very busy deriving some of the best innovation gone wrong materials I can for you. Today my family and I entered a buffet to see this on the menu “fruit display.” Have you ever had the opportunity to order a fruit display off a menu? If you have, I envy you. If you are like the rest of us, you haven’t and weren’t really sure how to respond. The fruit was ok, but it was spoiled by the fact that it really didn’t come as a display. I think they need to get called in on truth and advertising.

To more correct fruit display advertising!

Paying with Coins is Weird

Hi IGWers,

A bit of a break and not by choice. I have been outrageously busy. However, while reading today. I found out that a man brought in 8k worth of coins to buy a car. I can’t believe this. With virtual money and credit cards, isn’t this one of the most ridiculous things ever. Have you ever tried to fit 8k of  quarters  in your pockets? I hope not.

I hope the insanity ceases.

Innovation SuperFail: Banana Protector

Hello IGWers,

After thousands of centuries, one of the most ridiculous inventions has emerged to help mankind. That item is of course the banana protector. The banana protector is meant to protect your fruit. So apparently boxes, bags, and good old human ingenuity don’t work anymore. We have to protect ourselves from fruit, our coffee and everything else under the son. This is crazy.  What is even more astonishing is that you can protect your banana in seven different colors. Awesome I’ll carry my yellow banana in a red case and throw everyone off. That is sure to happen.

Thanks for sharing. I’ll be sure to use this invention the same time as my unfrozen popsicle drink mix.
