Why Didn’t Anyone Stop These Inventors From Making These Bizarre Products?

Dumb ideas have existed since the beginning of humanity. Luckily, most of these ideas remain as just that. Unfortunately, however, some of these ideas progress into actual products, such as the 12 that make up this ridiculous list.
