I’ve noticed a trend of adults getting excited over furniture that would be at home in Pee Wee’s Play House. When I see these kind of things, I automatically assume that they are just something that you forward around your social network for a chuckle. I mean this hamburger bed is super awesome but… would you really buy one?

Or watch TV lying on a 7ft bear?
Speaking of bears …did anyone catch the infomercial that was playing around Valentine’s day that some how made buying a giant teddy bear for your girlfriend seem creepily sexual? No? Here it is.
