Sometimes you just have to laugh; otherwise, you might cry. And that’s perhaps never truer than at the start of a new year, when winter blues and the prospect of another year of work or school – not to mention World War III – hang heavy in the air. Thank goodness, then, for these 20 utterly pointless things have now actually found a purpose – and that is to make you laugh.
20. Stupid spy hole
Peepholes are so handy for checking who’s at the door without being seen. Well, most of the time. But not this time, it seems, given the oh-so-handy glass panel that allows anyone waiting impatiently on the other side a full view of who’s ignoring them. D’oh.
19. Ramp to nowhere
This handy ramp for wheelchair or stroller users has a specially installed set of stairs at the end to help give disabled people a real challenge and encourage babies to start walking early. Not only that, but you can also wheel your chair up the ramp and admire the beautiful view of uncut grass and dirty fence. Lovely.
