Happy 4th of July! Whether you’re celebrating this patriotic day here in the U.S.A., or you live elsewhere and know nothing about it, there’s one thing we can all agree on: hamburgers. Who doesn’t love a good burger, especially on the one national holiday that was invented for grilling out?
This Independence Day, enjoy a hamburger the way geeks do — by celebrating their glory the way that only geeks can.
This one-of-a-kind piece of furniture is for the ultimate burger fan. The owner has no great desire to part with the Hamburger Bed, but says he’d be willing to sell it for oh, say, $25,000. [Image source.]
There may be no better way of proclaiming your love of hamburgers while looking like a complete dork. Sold for $8. [Image source.]
At $12, the hamburger massager is the perfect accessory for any cubicle drone, and makes a great conversation piece. In Geek, that translates to, “will vibrate weakly and repel women.” [Image source.]
Mini Hamburger Vacuum
Another office accessory for the über-nerd who loves burgers. Costs $11.99, measures just 4 inches across. See above re: how women usually respond to novelty gadgets. [Image source.]
It’s so much more than a mousepad. Plug this bad boy into a USB port and it’ll keep your hand all toasty — by sticking your hand inside it. Which is useful if, you know, you live in Siberia. Available here for $13. [Image source.]
These are what Ronald McDonald wears when shooting “horse” with his clown bros. These were a limited-edition Japanese pair of sneakers made by Asics (sorry, no longer available), using the colors of hamburger, buns, lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard, etc. The soles even have a picture of fries printed on them. Lots more pictures at the link. [Image source.]
About $100 will land you one of these tall burger stools, which, near as I can tell, must be imported from either Japan or Australia. Use it at your computer desk, next to several of the items above. [Image source.]
USB Hamburger Drive
Come on, you knew there had to be one of these on the list, right? There are lots of different burger-shaped USB drives, but this is the best-looking one I found. Unfortunately, it’s only sold in bulk. [Image source.]
This George Foreman grill is like no other: it’s dubbed the “iGrill” because you plug it into your computer’s USB port. Hard to believe a grill can pull enough electricity from your computer to power a grill, but it appears to work. Runs about $100. [Image source.]
