Hello Gadgettes and Jason,

Not sure if you've covered this yet, but I stumbled upon this page and I thought it would be appropriate for your "What the Hell" segment.

At the time of writing, it seems that the medium size is still available, but the small size is sold out… REALLY?

Keep up the great work,
Kayo


Hi Gadgettes!

I give you the Mangroomer - for that hairy backed man in your life! (my slogan)

I spotted the Mangroomer (official slogan: Maintain Yourself) in Target earlier today and had a little chuckle. My cellphone pix couldn’t really do it justice so I was hoping there was a Web site. Ah, yes my dreams were answered, complete with neutered male atop a spinning platform.

It bills itself as “The future of men’s grooming.” It’s the essential do-it-yourself electric back shaver, the essential private body shaver (ewwwww!), and the essential nose and ear hair trimmer.

Love the show!

Hi.
So here we have the Action Mobil Globecruiser. It's essentially the end-product of an RV/Grave Digger (famous monster truck) wuzzle.

It's so manly, the front grill even says man, hahahaha. Love it.
And look, in the last picture, its fording a river! Imagine trying to do that in your wagon on the Oregon Trail!!!

For a mere $670,000 and $800 per fill, you too can have a piece this…

Men!!

Have a great week everyone,
Karl
