Emasculating or Empowering?

Who buys this shit?!


the brobdingnagian sports chair


The Brobdingnagian Sports Chair

Capable of accommodating a Brobdingnagian, this is the portable chair that elevates your physical stature at any outdoor event. Measuring 5 1/2' tall, the chair is certain to provide stadium seating at any venue, and its 9' sq. seat affords ample room for full-body gesticulations or sharing your prodigious chair with a friend. The lofty seat elevates feet well above the ground, where they're free to dangle and sway instead of merely floundering in dirt or sand. The reinforced powder-coated steel frame and 400-denier rip-stop canvas support up to 400 lbs. The chair has six cup holders and folds to just 8 1/2" wide to allow transport in the included duffel bag. Step stool not included. Open: 5 1/2' H x 5' W x 3' D. Closed: 8 1/2" W x 5 1/2' H. (35 lbs.)

Available here.

This looks like something my Dh would buy and throw in the garage with the rest of his $h*t...

Vivienne said...

Is "retarded" and option, or do we have to go with empowering or emasculating...?

Dancing Branflake said...

Heff said...

the eternal list said...

YES! I'VE FOUND MY LIFE CHAIR!!!

Tia said...

L.A. Daze said...

Hahahahaaa where do you find this weird stuff? Who the hell wants to look like a midget sitting in a giant chair like that?

Hanako66 said...

you are not going to belieeeeeve this..

someone showed me a picture YESTERDAY, they bought this as a gag gift.

Christiejolu said...

OMG that is hilarious! He looks like a 5 year old...

Mrsblogalot said...

Good thing they don't make these in toilets.

Cheryl said...

Hate to say I would want that. That way, in a crowd, I can block someone else's view for a change.

bananas. said...

at first i was thinking the same thing...who buys this shit? but then i read the description. i want elevated height and even more leg dangling room. i want the best seat in the house. i want, i want, i want!

so the answer, my friend, is...me. i would buy that shit.

Char said...

LOL bigger is not always better ... some guys never really get that do they?

TERI REES WANG said...

Oh, no...I gotta go.

have a tooth pulled or something.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Option 1: I always wanted a chair I could sleep, actually live in!

Option 2: I always wanted a tiny man.

Gabbi said...

Besides looking reeeaally dumb carrying that around much less sitting in it... I'm wondering what you'd need 6 cup holders for?

creative kerfuffle said...

only a douche canoe would buy that. and seriously? who needs six cup holders?

Kathryn said...

This sort of reminds me of that creepy episode on CSI where the old man had a "baby" fetish, except this looks like it would be more like the toddler phase.

You just know the person that got this would park it in the front row of some event and block out everyone else's view and not only not care that the inconvenienced everyone else, butwould actually relish it.

Kitty Stampede said...

Wow...this isn't a JOKE?!?! i would puke laughing if i seen this in person.

...love Maegan said...

AAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHahahahahaha

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

Can you imagine taking this to a soccer game!?

I guess it's a novelty item.

ticklishfromadistance said...

WTF???!!!

jennifer from pittsburgh said...

Blame Seth Rogan. He popularized the 'man-child' ;) Btw, I HATE the man-child!!!!

love jenny xoxo said...

this is funny... but what db would actually buy this?!?

blueviolet said...

Nobody I wanna know!!!

thelayeredpancake said...

hahahaahaha, i am pretty sure my cat would love this.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Ridiculous! Though likely napworthy.

the spectator said...

The sad thing is, that there are people out there who would buy it.

Georgina Dollface said...

Not only does that thing look ridiculous, that can't be comfortable on your arms. That chair is ergonomically wrong in so many ways. That dude might as well got sit in a satellite dish if he wants to be off the ground. - G

cerebral e said...

You just know some dipshit is going to buy this and then block everyone else's view. It's bad enough being short without lard-arses giving themselves extra height too.

Susan Erickson said...

That must be for all the extra large folks that can't fit into regular airplane seats etc. scary....

Chessa! said...

how about ridiculous?

Alisa said...

With six cup holders, I hope it comes with a lofty potty!

Pretty Little World said...

That picture kind of freaks me out a bit - it's like my eyes don't know where to focus. I don't know what else to say...

Christina In Wonderland said...

I can't answer that question, lol, but I really want that chair! :)

Caitlin said...

I'm sorry in advance, but I really want this giant chair. I have a complex though. I'm 5'11" and I have spent my whole life standing next to other tall people so I look small by comparison.

chloe said...

would you think badly of me if i said i want one? it looks like it would so take the weight off your feet!
-does it come in any other colours? say... pink?

Heather Taylor said...

Completely unnecessary. There is no need for anyone to have 6 cup holders on their chair.
