Unitasker Wednesday: Automotive French Fry Holder

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 comes to us from our very own Dave Caolo. He emailed me a picture with the subject line, “Unitasker?” And I responded, why yes, Dave, I do believe it is a unitasker! Introducing the Automotive French Fry Holder:

Since eating while driving doubles the risk of having a car crash and causes an enormous percentage of all accidents, I think we can all agree that the best holder for your fries is the bag they came in — that is until you arrive at your destination and can safely consume them.

The Automotive French Fry Holder is not only a unitasker, but it promotes unsafe driving — a double whammy!

    For those long trips (some of my work commutes were 100 miles each way), having a stand upish way to keep my fries while I drive would have been helpful as fishing through a bag for that last crunchy yummy was quite distracting. However, the fry container always fit nicely in the drink holder. And yes, those fries did make my butt (look) big.

    You know, this seems like one of those that is actually a pretty good idea. If you’re eating fries in the car, this is definitely a safer way to go than rummaging through a bag. The problem is that if there’s more than one person in the car, the drink holders are probably already in use.

    Yes, eating in the car is not a great idea, but most of us do it at least occasionally, so why not make it easier and safer?

    Erin, spot on! I can’t think of a more ridiculous product that is so anti-safety! In the UK you can receive points on your licence if you are caught driving and eating/drinking/using a mobile phone.

    It needs a ketchup holder…

    You know, the french fry container usually fits in the cup holder just fine. Or in a pinch, between your legs.

    But where is the hand wipe that will allow you to get the frying oil off your hands so you don’t grease up the inside of the car? Another unitasker needed here! (Well, yes, and a place to put it…)

    Have these people never experienced the joy of finding a lost french fry between the seats?

    And I thought the post title was “Automated French Fry Holder”.

    Slightly disappointed, now. Thought it might be the modern equivalent of having someone peel you a grape…

    This is just silly.

    Now an automotive french fry *dispenser*–I’d look into that. Maybe like those straw dispensers where you press down the lever and one fry pops out, ketchup pre-applied, of course. 🙂

    Excellent unitasker.
    If I would feel the need for placing the fries in a cupholder I would ask for a extra beveragecup and pour over the FFs into that one and it would fit wonderfully in a cupholder.
