The Stupidest Men's Products Ever Invented (PICTURES)

Huffington Post     First Posted: 06/25/10 12:43 PM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 05:55 PM ET

This week we brought you the stupidest women's products ever invented, so it's only fair that we present the stupidest men's products as well. From what we can gather from these ridiculous items, men really only need help with hair loss, golfing, and making going to the bathroom easier. From the stereotypical to the humiliating, these products would put any self-respecting man to shame. Don't even get us started on the men's brassiere. We loved "Seinfeld" too, but a real-life "bro"? Even Kramer would blush.

  • Man Candles

    Also comes in other man-tastic scents such as bacon, sawdust, and farts. (<a href="http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCAQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.originalmancandle.com%2Fcategory_s%2F18.htm&ei=_0kZTOiTM8GclgeIrL3ZCw&usg=AFQjCNE2J3x2fxiTOTI3o36-GVqtn4N5Ew&sig2=3E-5jt1L0T3rkPqXuqi7ng">source</a>)

  • Gold Man Home Urinal

    This product is supposed to prevent messy toilet seats, but you still have to wash it (which it recommends you do using the shower). Wouldn't it be easier to just clean the regular toilet, or even pee in the shower? Yes. Yes it would.

  • FlairHair Visor

    This visor with oh-so-believable hair attached to it boasts "a distinctive, 1970s, Bjorn Borg-at-Wimbledon look." Yeah, right. (<a href="http://www.kotulas.com/wcsstore/KOTStore/productreviews/pwr/product-reviews/4180/Gifts-Gadgets/Gag-Gifts/Kotulas/p/100130-Flair-Hair-Brown-Hair-Black-Visor.html">source</a>)

  • Goatee Saver

    OK we see how this could be practical, but come on. Two words: Robot. Beard. (<a href="http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/18.197986-The-Most-Stupid-Products-EVER">source</a>)

  • Potty Putter Toilet Green

    Walking in on someone in the bathroom just got a WHOLE lot more awkward. (<a href="http://www.gagsandgoods.com/index.php?productID=156&PHPSESSID=05fa6b91895a6c7988b6ded46a75b1ef">source</a>)

  • Chest Hair Toupee

    If you can't grow hair on your chest and worry that women will judge you, just imagine how much they'll judge you when you're peeling this off before bed. (<a href="http://artofmanliness.com/2008/02/27/the-10-worst-products-for-men-ever-created/">source</a>)

  • Mantyhose - Pantyhose For Men

    Do we even have to go past the name of this product to point out how silly it is? OK, there is an <a href="http://www.e-mancipate.net/guide-how-to-put-on-the-mantyhose" target="_hplink">illustrated guide</a> on how to put them on. Satisfied?

  • UroClub - Golf Club Urination Device

    We get that there are no bathrooms on a golf course, so relieving yourself can be a little complicated. But this? It's a urine receptacle shaped like a golf club, complete with a "privacy shield" towel that's really an unconvincing loin cloth. All of a sudden peeing behind a bush seems so much more sophisticated. (<a href="http://www.marieclaire.com/fashion/trends/articles/bad-holiday-gifts">source</a>)

  • Men's Underwear Repair Kit

    Look, we know we're in a recession, but really? This seems like a lot of trouble to save a few pennies. (<a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=105x8310566">source</a>)

  • Spray-On Hair

    We always knew this product existed but can't actually contemplate who would use it. Is it worse than the FlairHair visor or just equally humiliating? (<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/11/02/the-15-stupidest-products_n_342316.html?slidenumber=tABY58qJzp8%3D&slideshow#slide_image">source</a>)

  • Men's Brassiere

    Oh Japan. You know Seinfeld was just a sitcom, right? The "bro" or "mansierre" was hilarious but should never have been actually made. And it comes in pink! (<a href="http://inventorspot.com/articles/mens_premium_bra_offers_hope_japans_overly_endowed_20078">source</a>)

  • Crying Girl DVD For Men

    This one's a long-shot. This Japanese DVD features 12 minor actresses crying for some reason or another, over and over again. Why, you ask? It's marketed to men who feel stronger after seeing beautiful women cry. Go figure. (<a href="http://inventorspot.com/articles/crying_girl_dvd_helps_men_feel_strong_36913">source</a>)
