Unitasker Wednesday: Tiger Taco

All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!

This week’s unitasker selection was guaranteed a spot in our feature simply because of its name: The Tiger Taco. I mean, how could we not link to something as glorious as a taco made of TIGERS?!!!

Except, as you can see, the product name is even clutter. There are no tigers. There are no tacos. And there certainly aren’t any tacos made of tigers. I call shenanigans. SHENANIGANS!

Moving past the name (which, I admit, is difficult to do), I’m not even sure why someone would need to use a Tiger Taco on a cardboard box. Have cardboard boxes changed in the past few weeks in a way that simply bending the top flaps back no longer keeps them out of the way? Are springs now a component in cardboard box flaps? Do cardboard box manufacturers blend in elastic with the paper pulp? If you really have a problem keeping box flaps out of your way, couldn’t a piece of reusable string or painter’s tape do the same thing?

Regardless, I’m still mad about the name. I wanted to see tacos made of tigers. SHENANIGANS!!

(Thanks to reader Lisa for sharing this unitasker with us.)

    They might prove useful for older folks on the move whose arthritis may prevent them from manipulating binder clips. A bit expensive, tho…

    I have to admit that I have had trouble keeping boxes open when loading up a client for a move, but it never occured to me to use a product to hold the boxes open.

    I also have to admit that I was disappointed because I thought they were taco holders. Maybe the manufacturer will read all the comments and come up with a way to retool them to keep tacos from spilling all over your clothes.

    Speaking of unitaskers, remember that brownie pan that made only edge pieces? Oprah just featured it on her Favourite Things episode!!

    I think you need to have a talk with your friends at Real Simple. They just featured the “avocado saver” as one of 6 “problem solvers.”

    ‘TIGER’ stand for Total Involvement Generates Extraordinary Results.
    An engineer who thinks he knows more than everyone else figured that one out.

    And you should try the Tacos with the hole in the bottom so the grease can drip out on your plate not on your shirt!

    I love what everyone wrote!
