15 of the World’s Dumbest Inventions

5. Anti Thumb Sucking Device

Parents understandably only want what’s best for their children. In some cases parents attempts at good are rewarding and happy for both parties… other times, parents can have misguided attempts to help their children, that will only result in future mortification and traumatic memories for the child.


…this is one of those cases. Children that have thumb sucking and finger sucking tendencies, beware. A new invention will block your appendages from being able to enter your mouth. The traumatic part isn’t so much that you’re no longer able to eat your hands, so much as be forced to wear such a ridiculous device in public until you learn your lesson. Oh well, maybe you had it coming.
