Chinese Acupressure Massage Rings

$10.99 from Amazon »

Nayoya Back Hook Massager

Jolt Concussion Detection Sensor

Pee-wee Herman Cycling Suit

55-Gallon Barrel of Lube

$2,500 from Amazon »

The most disturbing thing about a 55-gallon barrel of lube is not so much that it's a flippin' 55-gallon barrel of lube, but that a 55-gallon barrel of lube costs over $2,000. I mean, I know people want to have this sort...
