The Illegal Alien Costume

Hello IGWers,

As you all know Halloween is just around the corner. Kids and adults alike are flocking to the stores looking for the best costume they can possibly find. However, those seekers now have one less option.

Apparently, Target Corporation had one costume that was just too much for people. The costume which was apparently in the stores had the following things: orange jumpsuit, alien head and a green card. I’m no genius, but how does this pass muster the first time. This is incredible. I certainly don’t blame Target, yet I still have to think someone might just thought that an illegal alien wouldn’t offend anyone. Who knows?

Tell me about your craziest and most awesomely humiliating costume!

Frosting Flavored Deodorant

Hello IGWers,

A startling new revelation took place last night. Wal-Mart seems to be launching a frosting flavor and smell deodorant. Yep, you heard that right. Amongst many packages of Ax and Old Spice laid a canister of Funfetti. It is unclear how Funfetti was lying in the deodorant aisle but it was. Several questions have been prompted as a result of this startling find.

1. Must a person also put on sprinkles if they first put on frosting?

2. Does frosting anti-persperant last for hours/

3. Do you wreck every pair of clothes you own with frosting deodorant?

Chances are that miscategorization could have been the culprit, but I think that innovation gone wrong could reach new heights if it isn’t.

To more innovation gone wrong!

Can’t Hug Pandas

Hello IGWers,

Somedays people just surprise you. This happened to me the other day. I was reading an article from CNN. The article spoke of a 20 year old Chinese student. This student had the absolutely brilliant idea of jumping a 6.5 foot fence to hug the seemingly adorable panda. Bad choice, the student was bitten 3 times and taken to the hospital. To make things even funnier, this is not the first time this panda has lashed out at people. The same panda ripped apart a drunk man who did the same thing. I guess you have to grow up in the land of grizzly bears and black bears to realize that it is not the best idea to huge a FULL-GROWN bear.

BTW, if you ever record a person hugging a panda in person, this must be recorded as the stupidity would live in infamy.

Dear McDonald’s

Dear McDonald’s,

I want to inform you of a very interesting occurence I experienced tonight. While ordering from the BK Lounge I was greeted with a strange sound. Now I understand that people get along, but I would have thought I was in a strange dream. So, this strange sound was none other than the phrase, “I love the new Southern Style chicken sandwich for breakfast.” This sound was uttered by none other than the ordering lady directed by the King himself. So, global market recessions should be no worry for you. Your competition is selling your food for you. Just wanted to let you know.

To everlasting golden arches!

Your Dedicated Customer,

Innovation Gone Wrong Success Story: Plastic Wishbones

Hello IGWers,

I found a company today that kind of blows my mind. Many of you are familiar with the wishbone you receive with your turkey on Thanksgiving. Lucky Break Wishbone decides to deliver 30,000 of those lucky

wishbones every single day in plastic format. The story is absolutely crazy, but the owner is now a millionaire and brings or at least tries to bring luck via a magical plastic bone. This is pretty funny. If you want your own plastic wishbone visit luckywishbone.com.

Unbelievable. Believe it.

To more innovation gone wrong!

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!
