Ad agency BBDO Bangkok and the Thai government health board have created the “AbsorbPlate” and claim that it will soak up an average of about 7ml of oil (or 30 calories on average) from meals that are placed on it.

The plate is based on a sponge and employs 500 perforated holes to draw away the calories. It is hoped that it will help combat the country’s obesity problem by reducing the calories in Thai cuisine, which is notoriously oily.

At the moment, the plates are still in the development stage and no release date has been set. However, we would guess that when the time comes, they’ll be absorbing a lot of money as well. Check out the video below…

These cozy plush slippers are based on that adorable little worm from Labyrinth. You know, the one that says “‘Ello” to Sarah in the maze?

They’re listed as “one size fits most adults up to size 12” but even if you have tiny feet, how could you not get them and just wander around the house saying “‘Ello” to people?

Made by my coworker – the icing contains Vit. B12 which causes it to glow yellow (in the dark) when exposed to a blacklight!

He didn’t say anything about people at the party transforming into the Hulk, but we have to assume that’s exactly what happened.


I’ve seen some weird vinyl figures in my day, but these Ghostbusters “Funedibles” figures are truly baffling. The above “Pizza Venkman” and the below “Slimer Lime Gelatin” figures are supposedly so cute that, well, you’ll want to take a bite out of them.

They even have a Stay Puft version, which kind of ruins the whole concept. Read more after the break…
