When I first saw this product, I wasn't sure if it was a joke or the most irritable product I have ever seen. Why irritable you say? Well, who wants to firmly plant both of their feet on an alarm clock just to turn off that awful noise?

Not bad for the bedroom, eh? Just remember to keep it close to the bed; no one likes to get out of bed to turn the alarm off.
