The Tick Grabber – functional but creepy
Alright, I admit that this technically isn’t a gadget or at least not by most standards. In all fairness though, I looked up the word just to see if there was a loophole in the dictionary and it turns out there is. A gadget is also any ingenious article, so although I find this key chain to be beyond ridiculous I’m sure someone thought it was ingenious. Likely they were inebriated at the time of thinking it, but surely someone did indeed think so. Personally, I just find it highly disturbing.
For those that don’t live in heavily wooded areas or just don’t really ever go camping, ticks are annoying. Annoying and gross, they have to be removed in such a way that they won’t cause Lyme disease. Typically, we used something hot to get it to back out of the skin and that worked well enough. It didn’t cost us any money, which is always grand if you’re feeling particularly cheap. However, for those that would like to add another key chain to their key ring there is this odd little Tick Grabber. Just put the tick’s body through the largest part of the opening and then slide it to the smallest. Then you of course, pull. The device is being sold for $5.99.
