Modern offices are known for their efficiency. Problem solving. Teamwork. For their humor--sometimes, but not so much. I think we can all agree that the office doesn't need to be serious all the time, especially on April Fool's Day. In fact, studies show humor can benefit business in the long run. If your office mates are in need of gag gifts. However, At 12:00PM EST on April Fools, e-retailer ThinkGeek unveiled their newest innovations via Facebook Live and on their site -- they're both outrageous and awesome:
Wouldn't you rather be the cheesy, warm filling of a microwavable food? Slip into your own crisping sleeve with this sleeping bag, complete with the MicroWaav™ insulation system.
OK. Maybe it's tough finding your car keys. Or your kids' permission slips. Or your face. But you can most definitely master finding Barbara Holland from Stranger Things in this Where's Waldo spoof -- but in all seriousness, where is Barb?!
Not saving? This jar will let loose on you with expletive-filled reminders (adjustable PG to R rated) to make deposits.
So maybe Sinbad (aka David Atkins) never really did play a genie in a Disney film in the 1990s. But isn't the important thing that we all preserve our memories of watching that magical, nonexistent masterpiece? These copies--real VHS!!!--let you do just that.
Regular bike horns. Lame. Bike horn fashioned after the horn carried by the eldest sons of the Stewards of Gondor? Totally not lame. This one really is that simple.
You're not bananas enough to fling rubber-band-based monkeys around the office. You're mature. You're refined. That's why you only fling adorable, rubber-band-based cats that scream "YASS!" as they hurtle though space to your teammate's cubicle.
Remember, you're human. Your team is human. And humans laugh. It's OK. And if none of these gifts is just right, you've got lots of other geek-worthy options, like the Westworld Full-Body Snake Temporary Tattoo, Swim Desk, and Tentacuddle Wrap. Just keep it clean and safe and let the smiles commence.
But, sadly, and not to burst your geeky bubble, these products aren't actually available for purchase (#AprilFools). However, the geniuses over at ThinkGeek are known to listen to the community and sometimes turn their gags into real product just they did with their Tauntaun Sleeping Bag -- you're welcome Star Wars fans.
