Another year, another shonky product.
The annual Shonky Awards, run by Choice, are the Darwin Awards of consumerism.
Every year the world’s stupidest companies commit commercial suicide with their persistent attempts to push the shoddiest services and shonkiest products upon an increasingly suspecting public.
I mean, really – a spray on weight-loss product?
Undies that eat cellulite?
Quail eggs that cure erectile dysfunction?
Crystal encrusted dummies?
My favourite bad guy though was the “free” Smurf app for kids, which managed to rip off up to $800 from some unsuspecting families.
Nasty little critters!
