Kelly,

Two of the patents are in use. The bumper dumper can be found here. The dog [and cat] scuba can be found here. I thought I remembered them from surfing the web and Goolgled them.

Hi Girls (+Jason)

Following on from last weeks request for weird kitchen gadgets I felt I had to send you along the page for my recently purchased 3-in-1 pineapple corer which I am happy to confirm is the most awesome thing in the history of awesome things - although I now have several jugs of pineapple juice that I don’t know what to do with.

Other highlights from the Lakeland site include: Toaster Tongs allowing you to avoid that harrowing moment where you have to remove warm toast from the toaster and my personal favorite: the NurtriWeight scales: a brilliant invention which can tell you exactly in which way your next meal will contribute to your premature death.

All in all Lakeland plastics is the best site for ‘I never knew I needed that gadgets in the history of the world.

Love the Show
