Anti-Theft Lunch Bag
Designed to deter sandwich thieves. Green splotches are printed on both sides: "After your sandwich is placed inside, no one will want to touch it."

The bag was designed by Sherwood Forlee, who describes himself as "a designer with no design or art education." He also writes that he "calls himself a designer because it sounds hip and no one likes hanging around a nerd at a party."

One of his other inventions is a "Vaginal Simulator," which isn't a sex toy. "Rather, it is one of the most advanced and effective tampon testing simulators."

Before:
"Where's my sandwich? It was right here in the office fridge."
"I saw it in there this morning. I guess somebody swiped it."

After:
"Where's my sandwich? It was right here in the office fridge."
"I dunno. I only saw a real old one that had gone all green and moldy. It was so disgusting I threw it away."

You mean that sandwiches aren't supposed to look like that? Oh dear.

Personally, I find that making horseradish, pickled pepper and chutney sandwiches tends to discourage people from stealing my own lunches.

I find that the fact Habanero sauce and guacamole look alike tends to keep theft down to a one time entertainment. wink

I once knew a girl whose lunch was stolen so much that she did the old "Cod Oil Spaghetti Trick". She never had a lunch stolen after that. Hehe... tongue wink
