The 11 Most Ridiculous Things on Amazon & Why I Want Them

The 11 Most Ridiculous Things on Amazon & Why I Want Them

I absolutely love Amazon because they have pretty much everything. Plus, 2 day shipping with prime almost always allows for my procrastination. I do a fair amount of shopping from their site and I am even an amazon affiliate.


Affilate Link Disclosure | Pirate PrerogativeHowever, I often get a bit confused when I see certain products come up in my amazon search results. And God forbid I click on one! Then my recommended products lists and emails are just out of control. That got me thinking about some of the ridiculous things I've seen, and I decided it was worth writing about.

1. Horse Head Mask 
Horse Head Mask: The 11 Most Ridiculous Things on Amazon & Why I Want Them | Pirate Prerogative
This realistic-style horse head mask is both frightening and hilarious at the same time. I can only imagine the fun that could be had, especially with my Sister-in-Law who is terrified of horses.


2. Harcos Labs Zombie Jerky Teriyaki

I am certainly not a jerky fan, but The Captain is. He has been banned from eating the stuff when I am near, because it stinks. Maybe the though of rotted undead flesh in teriyaki flavor would end his jerky cravings.

3. Hansa Plush Life Size Great Dragon - 9.5 Ft Long, 8 Ft Tall
Life Size Dragon: The 11 Most Ridiculous Things on Amazon & Why I Want Them | Pirate Prerogative
You had me at "life size dragon." This amazon listing proves that dragons did exist, because it says it's real life size, so there. I'm not sure I could come up with the near $16,000 price tag, but if I am ever a billionaire, this baby is all mine.


4. Cute Cat in a Sandwich Kitten Animal Art Print Poster

I feel I owe it to this less than amused kitty to purchase this poster. Sadly, I feel he may never see the royalty checks from this photo shoot he did in his kitten years. He was young and dumb, and just didn't understand the business. He was literally treated like a piece of meat. In a sandwich.

5. Glow in The Dark Toilet Paper

No one likes turning on the light when they stumble to the bathroom at night. Let this roll light your way and provide the enough glow to know your all clean and dry. Bonus feature, instantly know if you've got any toilet paper residue stuck to you.

6. I KNOW THAT GUACAMOLE IS EXTRA Tee

I am an avocado addict and eat one every day. I absolutely know that guacamole is extra (except in my Chipotle Veggie Burrito, because they are awesome) and I fully intent to pay for it. You menu CLEARLY states the ridiculous price you charge, but I am willing to fork it over so I can fork in my creamy condiment addiction.

7. One Direction Printed Duct Tape AND

One Direction Duffle Bag: The 11 Most Ridiculous Things on Amazon & Why I Want Them | Pirate Prerogative
Okay, so my One Direction obsession isn't quite to the level of kidnapping supplies, but I thought it was hilarious to see these two items in my search results. If you're considering felony kidnapping, why not do it in Directioner style, right? (I do not endorse kidnapping, even with these products. However, if you want to bring a consenting Harry Styles my way, I will gladly accept)

Go Girl Female Urination Device: The 11 Most Ridiculous Things on Amazon & Why I Want Them | Pirate Prerogative
I thing this is a genius product and I love the "don't take like sitting down" catch phrase. I, personally, have an unhealthy ability to hold my need to pee for ridiculous amounts of time. Maybe this would convince me to go more often. I 100% recommend searching amazon for female urination devices, because there are a ton and some have extremely comical images. 

9. Women's Stretch Seamless Printed Pattern Leggings Pants
Space Tiger Leggings: The 11 Most Ridiculous Things on Amazon & Why I Want Them | Pirate Prerogative
Although I am a firm believer in the leggings are NOT pants mantra, I think these space tiger leggings are amazing. Printed leggings haven been getting all sorts of crazy, to the point of me needing them all. My only problem is, do you dress up or dress down space tiger leggings? 


10. Bubble Ball
Bubble Balls: The 11 Most Ridiculous Things on Amazon & Why I Want Them | Pirate Prerogative
When I first saw this product, I instantly had a vision The First Mate rolling around in a bubble of safety while I happily blogged, cleaned the house, and caught up on some DVR shows. Then I realized that may not be quite how this product would work out. But, after a thorough review of the description and comments, I was thrilled to learn this product can also be used by adults. Bubble party anyone?

11. Original Concept Drawing from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas
Original Nightmare Before Christmas Artwork for $18,500: The 11 Most Ridiculous Things on Amazon & Why I Want Them | Pirate Prerogative
This one I literally do want, for reals. This is an original concept drawing depicting Ooogie Boogie, Santa, and Sally from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. It's custom framed with UV plated glass. It's amazingly rad, and it costs as much as a car! It's retails for $18,500 and would look perfect next to a life size dragon.

If you want to shop for normal products from amazon, check out The Ship Shop, my amazon astore. I've compiled things we use and love, cloth diapering items, and more.
