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 overcoming a bad habit, I try to make positive, declarative statements about my behavior and avoid telling myself I can’t or won’t do something. For example, I’ll think, “I make nutritious and healthful food choices,” instead of “Don’t eat junk food.”
I’m reconsidering my policy on avoiding can’t and won’t statements, however, after discovering this week’s unitasker selection. The device leaves me feeling strongly compelled to declare, “I will not eat any hot dogs steamed inside an animal.”
I’m 99 percent certain this is a dog since it’s wearing a collar and “barks,” but one percent of me thinks it might be a rabbit. Whether dog or rabbit, animals’ innards should not be cooking meat products. It’s reminiscent of seafood restaurants with tropical fish tanks lining the walls and daily the fish in the tanks are forced to watch their cousins being eaten off dinner plates. I find it all very unsettling.
