Unitasker Wednesday: Waterproof Pool Table

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

When I go swimming, I refuse to go anywhere without a Waterproof Pool Table:

It’s just not swimming if I can’t work in a few laps and then hustle some kids out of their allowances when I run a table in Eight Ball. Swimming and billiards are such obvious companions.

And with a price tag of $6,500.00, I can’t believe there are swimming pools without Waterproof Pool Tables. Shocked! Shocked, I tell you.

    It might be fun at a resort. But definitely a waste of pool space at home.

    I think the site that’s posted on says it all – “opulentitems.com”

    While putting it in a swimming pool strikes me as pretty stupid, I can actually see a use for this thing. I’ve always thought it would be kind of fun to have a pool table in the backyard (thanks for the idea, Drew Carey!) for BBQs and such, and this one could be left out in the rain!

    Definitely not worth $6,500 though!

    Technically, both swimming pools and pool tables are large unitaskers. At least this way you combine spaces efficiently. Even the names are more efficient: swimming pool table.

    I am all about de-clutter and so found your site. What a hoot! It’s the most I have laughed all day. Thanks for the comic relief! Hey, maybe not a bad idea if you have the room in the pool, huh? Love your caption, though!!

    Are the pool balls made of alabaster? If so, they would not be conducive to playing water polo. Can you imagine getting hit in the head with one of those things? DROWNING VICTIM!!!

    Alas, where are the pool-ready DanceDance Sensation and the underwater Wii?

    We put the ‘pool’ in pool table.

    Personally, I’d go for the clear canoe listed on their site. I can see more point to it and it’s less than a quarter of the price.

    I bought one of these, having quickly identified it as an absolute necessity. Unfortunately I couldn’t then afford to build the pool to put it in, so I put it in my pond instead.

    It really brings a special something to my back garden, although, sadly, the goldfish don’t seem to get much use out of it.

    “Pool pool!” Heh.

    I think it would be so much more fun if it floated capriciously around the pool and you had to make your shots while treading water…

    No one who has seen Beverly Hillbillies could possibly call a pool table a Unitasker.

    This seems to me less a unitasker so much as just an extreme luxury item. I don’t think it’s any less unitasking than a regular pool table, table tennis table, foosball table or any other such. It’s just an extreme ‘stuff’.
