Forehead Ad Blocker
image Hot on the heels of the latest guy who was auctioning off advertising space on his forehead, comes this eBay entrepreneur who has invented Forehead Ad Blockers.

there is a new type of advertising that is rapidly gaining ground: forehead advertising. These ads will be inescapable, especially if you have to visually interact with that soulless human posing as a walking billboard. That is, unless you have: The Forehead Ad Blocker™
Portable! No heavier than a standard pair of safety glasses!
Adjustable! Blocks forehead ads regardless of their height! Just raise or lift your head!
Patent-pending technology!

I'm be far more interested in a forehead whacker. Say, a lead pipe. Be far more effective.

I guess the target market for this product would be people with no eyelids.

All this is pretty new to me, I honestly don't know if this is for real or not but it has given me an idea. What about an add with a 0055 number@ $4.95/min that says "Rent A Bludger". All I'd have to do is slowly explain that for $80.00 I will come over to your house for 4-6hrs, eat all your food, smoke your fags, drink all your beer and then piss off without saying thanks. If I can keep the idiot on the phone for 5min I'll still make a buck. I wonder how many people would ring me, let alone take me up on my generous offer?

Do you reckon theres a possibility he will use photo shop to put the logo or site domain on his forehead and not actually do it?

Because in this case he could make a lot of money and not look like an idiot!.
