9. Female Urination Funnel Even in today's modern world, women face obstacles. Less than a hundred years ago, women were finally allowed to vote -- and today they still have to sit down to use the restroom. Unless they buy the Female Urination Funnel, which gives women the independence to say, "I want to stand up when I pee!" Ladies, get off that dirty old toilet seat and make your way to the urinal...next to the men. 8. Gun Holster Wallet If you're like many Americans, you have the intense urge to exercise your Second Amendment rights -- but now Colorado has those pesky gun laws.

7. Human Fetus Soap One of the greatest gifts in life is that of life itself. Now you can hold the gift of life in your hand -- while you wash in the shower!

But Truck Nuts offer a unique chance for drivers to show off their balls. 5.

4. Submarine Yes, you can buy a submarine online -- all kinds of submarines, in fact. A top-of-the-line $2 million submarine, a submarine shaped like a killer whale or the kind of yellow submarine that is usually reserved for National Geographic expeditions. Although it's expensive the personal sub will buy you priceless hours of serene and quiet exploration of the ocean floor. 3. Hitch-Mounted Stripper Pole Every now and then, men need to blow off steam. Normal ways of doing this would be watching sports, drinking beer, barbecuing or any combination of the three. And then there are strip clubs, but those can be tough to fit into today's busy schedules. But with the Portable Hitch Stripper Pole, you can take your favorite past time on the go. Because it's portable, you can take the family on a road trip and still enjoy some quality man time just for yourself: There's nothing classier than a young woman with father problems dancing on a pole on the back of your pickup truck. 2. Poop Gold Pieces Does your outer appearance fail to express your inner worth? With Poop Gold Pieces, you can show people just how classy you are on the inside! With these digestible pills -- just $425 each -- you can literally crap gold, and your fecal matter will shine bright and long. 1. Actual Poop We've now evolved to the point where we can purchase now just pills to make our poop gold, but actual poop on the Internet.
