Prank Pack - Giving the Giggles

What happens when four staffers from The Onion start a product company? You get Prank Pack, a gift box that will make everyone on your holiday list think you're regifting from the greatest office Secret Santa list, ever. 

Each Prank Pack is designed to elicit squeals of confusion and disappointment. The faux products they show seem *almost* shelf-ready, so your giftee will think you took the time to order something special you saw on late-night TV. My personal favorite is the Crib Dribbler, which is essentially the human baby equivalent of a hamster feeder:

Imagine the fake smiles and thank yous this one will elicit at baby showers! Helicopter parents will not get the joke until they open the box and realize they've been Pranked! Genius. We also received the iArm forearm device mount, the automated Pet Petter ("Never touch your pets again!") and the the Obe'ir Bathe & Brew shower coffee maker. Finally, something to make you look forward to gift giving again!

Rumor has it that you will see Prank Pack displays in Walmarts this holiday season. They might look a little like this:


It should be noted that along with the excellent selection of Prank Packs, I received some Someecards goodies, including some lovely greeting cards ("Sorry you're feeling like such a pussy.") and handy pint glasses like this one:

I'm not clear on the particulars but my internet stalking leads me to believe the companies are related, under the 30Watt masthead. Those funny folks always stick together. And oddly, out of spitball distance…
