Post a Comment

Meet Joerg Sprave – coming soon to a reality TV show near you – a multimillionaire German CEO who likes weaponizing and lethalizing everything he can get his hands on, even office supplies and paper planes. Sprave features his virtually deadly creations on his YouTube station called “The Slingshot Channel.” Watch him construct car-sized slingshots of mass destruction, gatling slingshot crossbows and, his newest creation, an Oreo Separation Pump Gun that was designed to annihilate your favorite chocolate, creamy afternoon snack.

Joerg Sprave

Imagine taking over a country… with Oreos? Nabisco wouldn’t be proud. With this 14 shot, high-powered manual, pump action sling gun, Sprave say’s, “It’s a basic human desire to destroy an OREO cookie.” Sprave’s Oreo shooter, which is made out of a lightweight plywood of sorts, is half Mad Max and half John Malkovich’s gun in the 1991 feature film “In The Line of Fire.”

Snowtime Anytime Brings the Snowball Fight Indoors

Post a Comment

There’s one problem with indoor snowball fights — the cleanup. With Snowtime you get most of the fun of an indoor frozen projectile war with none of soggy mess.

Snowtime Anytime is a pack of lightweight cotton snowballs designed to keep kids (even in the warmest of climates) busy and exercising all year long. And it works but, as the inventors quickly figured out, everyone loves a snowball fight. Now the zip-up carrying case packaging says, this product is for “ages 3 to 103,” which is all the justification adults need for holiday or office parties of any kind.
