PATENT LUNACY - Human sound muffler


Some inventions are crying out to be made, whilst others we could probably do without - this may well be in the latter category.

Quite why this is useful is a mystery to many people but not us. Anyone who has been in a situation where they need to let off a bit off steam in the form of verbal expletives will relate to this product.

Imagine being at a wedding and the mother of the bride steps on your foot - you can't exactly call her an old bag in front of the congregation can you?

According to the design spec., this device will “absorb most of the sound emanating from the user’s mouth”. Perfect for foul mouth individuals or hot heads with a lose tongue.
