Round dice, toe-less wellies, floppy-handled cutlery - all essentially flawed and utterly pointless objects. Another object perfectly at home on this list is the holey condom (not to be mistaken with the holy condom).
Except, while a round dice will merely ruin your board game, a holey condom will ruin your life, primarily through the introduction of children and STIs.
Jake Gamez, of Fadeaway Barbershop in Beeville, Texas, shared a picture of a condom attached to his business card on Twitter, with the caption: "Gotta include one of these with every card! You're going to need it after I cut your hair. Trust me."
Ah very clever Mr Gamez, we see what you're implying - get a haircut from you and we're going to be rendered instantly irresistible and will thus need a contraceptive.
Except, as the right-hand picture clearly illustrates, you've gone and punched a staple right through that johnny haven't you? Now what good is that? Surely a paper clip would have been more appropriate?
This flaw didn't get overlooked in the Twittersphere though.
One person said: "You put holes through the condom Jake."
"LMAOOOSKSKKSKDKKDKSKSK IM DEAD. THE FUCKINF STAPLE," another calmly added.
But what kind of person would do such a thing? ... Perhaps the kind of person who wants to ensure an ever-growing customer base? Yes, what if Mr Gamez isn't a moron, but is in fact an entrepreneurial mastermind?
Some people certainly seem to think so:
One person said: "Homie put a staple in the condom so he could give his client's future son a fade too. I fuck with the vision."
Another added: "You out here with a vision of creating generational wealth..... great business plan"
Whether or not Mr Gamez made a mistake or is in fact an evil genius, we'll probably never know. It seems unlikely he would be thick enough to bang a staple through a johnny, but then it also seems unlikely he would be evil enough to ruin the lives of childless and STI-free customers.
What we know for sure is that a picture of his business card has been retweeted almost 8,000 times, so perhaps he isn't evil or a moron - just bloody good at marketing himself on social media.
