Two Absurd Designs I Just Had to Share

Both of these popped up today on the gadget blog I read. I can't decide which one I find more amusing, the shark or the zipper.

We're Gonna Need a Bigger Sharkboat

The zipper has to be the most ridiculous of the two.

The zipper appears to have stability problems.... and it is ridiculous, indeed.

If anyone can figure this out, please explain: If you are driving a 260 hp supercharged jet-drive fibreglass shark at fifty miles an hour, what purpose does the onboard video game system serve?

My favorite line at work (at a transit consulting company) would appear equally valid here:

"We don't deal in logic, we deal in transit."

Makes you wonder what would happen if the Zipper circumnavigated the globe.

That is too awesome! Now you've got me planning my next boat project. I don't know if I can "out-redneck" that one, but it makes me want to try.
