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 came from my husband who thinks it is hysterical. He had to explain it to me, because no matter how many times I read the product description I couldn’t figure out what the Lawn Stryper does:
I finally figured out that the Lawn Stryper is a rolling weight that pushes down your grass and puts a pattern on your lawn, like a baseball field (well, at least until it rains or the wind blows). I can’t imagine it helps the fuel economy of a self-propelled mower, and for $96 it seems like quite the expensive novelty item. Also, how can you see the stripes in the yard if you don’t have an aerial view? Before you think that a local parks department might want to buy it, I should note that this specific item is for home use only and won’t work with a large, professional mower. There are larger field stripers for professional use.
