There are plenty of oh-so-kooky people who have cute bunny ears attached to their iPhone covers, but there’s a whole world of wacky cases out there that takes this quirky trend to new, almost disturbing levels of grossness. In short, you won’t believe these rather disgusting covers even exist, never mind that people actually pay money for them. Hold on to your lunch, because these are the 20 craziest, grossest iPhone cases that money can buy.

20. The Edible Rice Cracker Cover
This rather unexciting-looking iPhone cover caused quite a stir in 2012. Bizarrely, the entirely edible accessory – the work of “Mariko” in Japan – is made out of salt and brown rice. Still, novelty value aside, the cover doesn’t really seem to function as either a phone case or a tasty snack.

19. The Chicken Drumstick Cover
Yes, this monstrous iPhone cover is shaped like a giant deep-fried chicken drumstick. Made by KFC Japan, the ridiculous product is available for the iPhone 5S. “Why would anyone want to speak into a chicken leg?” you ask. Hey, who are we to judge.

18. The Bacon and Egg Breakfast Cover
What possible scenario would motivate someone to buy an iPhone cover that looks like a realistic bacon and egg breakfast, complete with shiny bacon fat and grease? Who knows. But if you’re still interested, the icky case was designed for the iPhone 4 by Japanese company iMeshi.

17. The Realistic Ear Cover
These disturbingly realistic EARonic iPhone covers are available in a pretty random-seeming series of ear types. Strangely, this range even includes one mock hearing organ wearing a hands-free earpiece – because it’s important that people don’t forget you have an ear while you’re on the phone, right?

16. The Deep Sea Crustacean Cover
Made by Japan’s Toba Aquarium, this limited edition case was actually constructed from the exoskeleton of an isopod, which is a crustacean similar to a crab or a shrimp. Still, who’d want one of those next to their ear?
15. The Severed Fish Cover
Yes, that’s a faux dead fish head, complete with lifeless, vacant eye. Not even the slice of lime makes this any more refreshing, but you’ve almost got to admire the attention to detail here.

14. The Amputated Hand Cover
There are no words to describe just how creepy this iPhone cover is. Created in Japan, the bizarre case has a hyper-realistic hand attached to it that you can order in adult or child size.

13. The Mince Meat and Soy Sauce Cover
Thanks to this gross iPhone case, you’ll never be without minced meat and soy sauce again. Created for the iPhone 4, the wacky accessory also features lifelike recreations of salmon and egg. Yum.
12. The Sushi Cover
Continuing the weird Japanese trend of decorating iPhone covers with strangely accurate models of food, this iMeshi iPhone 5 and 5s case features perfectly reconstructed pieces of sushi. And the mock morsels look almost good enough to eat – if, that is, you’re already crazy enough to have bought the accessory.
11. The Terrifying Teeth Cover
Spending $150 on an iPhone case that closely resembles a long set of teeth requires a special kind of insanity or, perhaps, just an unrelenting need to freak everyone out. Etsy seller ConcaveOblivion even went the extra mile by making a few of the not-so-pearly whites convincingly crooked.
10. The Raw Meat Cover
You’d need to be a pretty dedicated carnivore to have this slab of what looks like glistening raw meat pressed up against your ear – especially when you consider the fact that this iPhone 5C case doesn’t come cheap, costing just under $60.
9. The Hairy Guy’s Tongue Cover
Why spend your hard-earned cash on something sensible like food or bills when you could shell out for an iPhone case featuring a massive photo-realistic depiction of a guy sticking out his tongue? Gross – and all yours for $38 from Fine Art America.
8. The Eel and Rice Cover
One vendor of this disgusting iMeshi unagi case promises that you’ll be able to “shock your friends by pulling a delicious looking meal out of your pocket!” adding, “They will think you carry around cooked eel and rice in your pocket for fun!” If you want to get rid of all of your friends quickly, then, this is the accessory for you.

7. The Pickable Nose Cover
Here’s a brightly colored, rubber iPhone case. So far, so normal, right? Except that this one has a nose on the back, presumably to satisfy all your picking needs without you having to shove a finger up your own nostril.

6. The TV Dinner Cover
Does this cover make you quaint and retro? No, having a drab, uninspiring image of an old-school TV dinner on your iPhone is just plain odd.
5. The Detailed Brain Cover
Made by a Thai manufacturer, this charming little case for the iPhone 6 features a very close-up shot of some unfortunate soul’s brain. Suffice to say that this is not an item for the squeamish.

4. The Egg On Toast Cover
While this cover may not be quite as bad as some of the others, it is utterly random. What’s more, serving up a weirdly realistic egg and toast on your iPhone will set you back around $30 – unless you do it yourself, which we wouldn’t recommend.

3. The Unappetizing Noodles Cover
On this iPhone case in the iMeshi series, the yakisoba noodles look good enough to eat. Just kidding – unless, that is, you like consuming gross, plasticky messes.

2. The Chinese Food That Looks Like Vomit Cover
No need to get a greasy Chinese takeout when you could just gnaw on this horrendous mock-food phone cover. Think of the calories saved.
1. The Moldy Bread Cover
Even normal bread would be hard to justify putting on an iPhone cover, but moldy bread – even if it is just a pic of the stuff? Owners of this case would do well to take a long, hard look at themselves.
