Work probably prevents you from spending your time on the beach, but artist Justin Kempyou decided to try and fool himself into thinking that he’s there with this office sandbox, which is officially titled “Surfing With The Sand Between My Toes.” There doesn’t seem to be any details on whether this will ever become a real product, but if it did, you can bet it would result in a sand trail throughout your house, and will double as the biggest toilet your cat has ever seen.

This “Bauballs” ornament was the brainchild of the Orchid Testicular cancer organization and the London office of ad agency Fallon. Aside from being hilarious, the product was created to raise awareness and money for testicular cancer research.
With that in mind, why not buy three and let the others double for T&A?

A London based company called Black Astrum creates business cards inlaid with gold and “diamonds of the highest quality” for a whopping $1,500 apiece. However, being rich isn’t the only qualification for carrying these things around – you actually have to be invited by the company.
Sufian Khawaja, Black Astrum’s concept director says, “We’ve had several enquiries from American celebrities and international businessmen, however our cards are offered by invitation only, reflecting our desire to serve only the most premier individuals”. The cards were originally created as a one-off project for a wealthy Middle Eastern family.
Since its exclusively customized to a client’s specifications, the cost of making varies. However, the company states that the average selling price per card is about the £1000 ($1,500), and it is sold in sets of 25, 50 and 100 cards.
Let’s hope the “premier individuals” they speak of are the type that would have “hock me” printed on their cards before distributing them to charities.
