Useless Stuff

Just read the Wedding Gifts thread, which set me thinking.
What would you nominate as totally useless/illogical?

I'll start with the Toast Rack, rapidly cools nice hot toast as quickly as possible

Ok if yer don't like hot toast Mr G which one doesn't, spoils the butter it does when it melts into th toast, we discussed this on the toast thread a while back one seems to recal.
How about Fish Knives and Forks?
nobody uses fish knives and forks anymore except possibly singaporegirl and Blue Diamond, come to think one hasn't seen much of them about the place this last week or so,what has become of them one is forced to ask?

One hasn't seen a fish knife for years, let alone weeks Mr D I suspect the fish have a deal of trouble handling them.

HM Brenda does not use them either, but she ain't as posh as Sporegirl & BD.

Anyway, I like me toast hot.

Another useless kitchen obect is a small ladle thing with a hole in the bottom WTF is that for?

useless?

What about a windscreen wiper on a submarine? Maybe is not so useless after all but my guess is that they aren't good enough yet for the job...

My earlier nomination of chocolate teapot was obviously so useless the server decided not to let it appear.


Oh well......see if this disappears too....

Its not really that stupid. If you are in an exam you love to read a line like that and you know that you are not missing anything.

The opening statement that most speakers at large meetings make:- "Can you hear me at the back?"

If you can't hear him, how do you know what he's just said?

Tartan dollies
Plastic things they sell in the shops here that I think are meant to live on the table and you're supposed to put your paper knapkins in
Knife rests - just lick the knife clean
Fishnet stockings - they don't keep you warm and it shows if you haven't waxed your legs recently
