Brilliantly, absurdly funny,
This review is from: 101 Unuseless Japanese Inventions (Paperback)
I like the Chindogu concept as much as I like the inventions themselves! Before reading, please read the 10 Tenets of Chindogu!
From time to time, it's good to see people who are willing to make a huge effort for absurdity's sake. Even the text is painstakingly worded to maximize the humor of each invention--I ate up the words like they were sushi.
If you are the kind of person who is into prop conversation pieces, this is a good addition if you don't already have it. Perfect for rescuing yourself from awkward moments, as well as delighting others with many hysterical laughs. And I wonder how many true "useful" inventions have been born out of contemplating these "unuseless" ones? (Probably not TOO many!)
