Groupon, Livingsocial, Gilt and other coupon sites are all the rage these days. No longer merely for the urban poor and people who live in trailers, the coupon has become a badge of honor. “Yeah, I totally had a Groupon for it!” It’s not even considered overly cheap to use one on a date, (though I think it shows lack of class). Still, not all of the things they have on these sites is desirable…by anyone. I’m not sure what criteria the sites have for what deals they allow on. After all, there are a lot of vibrators and “back massagers” for sale on Groupon. But some of the stuff is just…unsettling.
Take for example this Skull LED Wine Bottle Holder. Why in the name of Zeus’ scrot would I want that, Jack? Let’s set the scene: It’s your next dinner party. The brie is resting, the candles are lit, and Michael Bolton’s greatest hits is on the stereo. You look over at your wine bottle, just sitting naked on the table, and wish that you could spice it up. But what piece would best show off your taste and sophistication? A skull shaped bottle holder with glowing LED eyes, of course! Your co-workers will think that you are a man to be respected when they sip a nice merlot out of a plastic skull. Maybe your wife will learn to love you again when you serve her some champagne from a bucket with glowing demon eyes? Buy it here.
