The Fart Button

There is an ad on MySpace.com that got me. It was a big white square with a red button in the center and it said, "The Fart Button...press it. You know you want to." or something like that. In the lower right hand corner there are the words Sound: on/off.

Now, I KNEW this was fake. I KNEW it was an ad. But I had to push it. I had this insane need to hear a fake fart noise. I even turned the volume on my speakers up a notch. Just to get that funny little fake fart noise. Actually, I kind of hoped it would be a great big fake fart noise. LOL!

Of course, a new window popped up and it tried to get me to download jokes of the day, etc. I'm so disappointed and irritated with myself. It's not like I don't hear enough farting at home between Patrick and Moira. Jeez.

Awesome Invention Ideas - Feel free to steal

I have several, although I can only think of two, great invention ideas rolling around in my skull. I think they could potentially make someone a lot of money if you had to drive and money to figure out how to make it work.

Idea #1: Automatic cat feeder. We have a little dog that likes to eat the cat's food. So my theory is to have an automatic feeder that drops food only when the cat comes near it. Like an automatic garage door opener on it's collar or something.

Idea #2: Two-in-one clothes waster/dryer. The way my idea would work is by having a stackable unit, which would limit the size of your loads, but it does all the work so doing more loads would be no big deal. The washer is on top, so you load the clothes in the washer and set both the washer and the dryer. When the washer is done, the whole tub rotates 180 degrees and "dumps" the clothes into the bottom dryer. When the washer tub rotates the other 180 degrees to get back to it's starting point, it triggers a button that starts the dryer. All you have to do is fold and start your next load! You could actually do a whole load of laundry while you're at work. Set it and forget it.
