Who doesn’t love turning to the pages in women’s magazines that offer top tips on all sorts of things we’d never have thought of ourselves? Sometimes they’re really useful – other times they fail extremely hard. Here are 15 of the worst. Some of them show that there are quite a few people who shouldn’t be let out on their own.
Cling film your keyboard
Or alternatively, leave your desk to eat and save yourself money on buying rolls of clingfilm and getting all annoyed when they won’t unravel properly.
2. Mad hatter
She looks thrilled to bits in her stunning creation. Who wouldn’t?
3. Niche food holder
Who actually wants an onion ring holder? WHO???
4. That doesn’t look at all scruffy.
Oh just go and buy a clothes airer. Skinflint.
5. Look like you’re making a dirty protest at all times
Just. Eeeew. No. We don’t care if they stay warm for all eternity, we’re still going to look like we’ve had an accident and couldn’t get to the loo in time.
6. Poor bear. That’s animal abuse.
And makes the toy look like it wants to crawl in a hole and die somewhere. Poor thing.
…and hope that 300 other people haven’t gone to the park with the same idea as you…
8. What is it with these awful ideas for handwarmers?
Now we can stay warm in winter and won’t go hungry. Yeah, and everyone will be backing away from you with their handbags over their noses because you stink to high heaven.
9. He worries about his wife
So he lets her go out looking like a total idiot. Great husband you’ve got there Mrs Alvin.
10. Feeeeel that BURNNNNNNNN
Enjoy the extra surge of power, and the gentle waft of BO as you try to watch Corrie without gagging.
11. Destroy your memories
Let your family know how much you love them by shredding all your photos and weeping as you can’t fit them all back together.
12. Save your blushes
The starch will stop you slipping and you’ll be stuck with an Old Potato all night. Still, you’ll get a feel for what it must be like to hang out with Donald Trump for an evening.
Put your boulder holders to good use – and your friends and family to shame.
14. Just…just no…
There are no words. Just none.
