"Necessity is the mother of invention." - Plato 
"Uselessness is the cool uncle of invention." - Matt Neylon

All of my inventions are (f)unnecessary. Sure, I'm thankful for Edison and his slew of world-changing inventions. But I admire people like Kenji Kawakami, the godfather of chindōgu (useless inventions), and the person that invented the ketchup packet you can squeeze and/or dunk your nugs in. Amen.

2. High Toes
They're like high heels but for toes. The footwear game is about to change, leaning fashion-forward on its toes. With High-Toe Shoes! Featured on Betabrand.
I had some haters in the comments on Betabrand. Some good laughs. Here's a few gems:
• "So stupid that it might actually sell just for shits and giggles." - @cautiouslego
• "I feel like I laughed a lot more than I should have." - @Gabridge
• "Please tell me they're a joke?" - @two_sheds
• "Stick to copywriting, shoe design is obviously not your thing." - Scott W.
• "This is not fashion, its stupidity." - Stacy N.
• "I am a woman and I would wear these. I don't wear regular heels, but these seem more comfortable." - Julia Marino​​​​​​​
