Ashtray screams, coughs at smokers

A novelty lung-shaped ashtray not only looks like a body part, but screams and coughs when you set a cigarette in it.

Coughing, screaming ashtray
Smokers beware: the coughing ashtray is an annoying dose of reality. Perpetual Kid

Want to annoy the nicotine addiction out of your smoking friend or family member? A battery-operated gadget named the "Screaming Coughing Ashtray" might just do it.

Though it's sold as a "fun" way to help people quit smoking, the gift giver might be the only one laughing. The $11 lung-shaped ashtray not only reminds smokers which body part is most adversely affect by smoking, but whenever a cigarette sits in it, it starts coughing and screaming.

Though the annoying ashtray could simply be thrown out a window, those who are sincerely trying to quit smoking could keep it around knowing they'll be subject to its awful noises if they give in to a craving. If the subtle e-cigarettes don't work maybe this screaming therapy will. I know what my brother will be getting for Christmas...
