Bump year 3!

Currently thinking about a USB Rocket Launcher but I'm not sure everyone at the party is around a computer all the time, so maybe I'll go a different route.

If anyone has any new $25 (I'd probably go as high as $40) ideas, funny or really cool, let me know!

Sylvus you linked Airzooka, which is different (does not hook up to a computer and does not launch anything but air). I will say though that I bought Airzookas for all of Eric's step nephews last year (3-4) and they played with then over the rest of their toys. Even the adults were stealing the Airzookas from them to blast each other. It basically blasts just a big puff of air, but its pretty localized and strong enough to go across the room. I didn't think it was as amazing as everyone else did, but the crowd loved it.

Oops! I was looking at those too. This is the rocket launcher I was talking about.

Okay, I went a different direction entirely, and came up with another idea that I think is funny. It is composed of several products from http://www.blueq.com/. Lots of funny, inexpensive things there if anyone else is interested in checking it out.

Now I know where Urban Outfitters gets their shit and I'll skip the middle man. I've got the "Believe In God" breath spray, the "Repooplican" car air freshner and the "Don't Say the Word Shit" matches (for the bathroom of course)

I also ordered a pair of those rocket launcher turrets that Sylvos linked. One for me and one as a gift- can't wait for them to arrive!

It's probably too late for this Christmas, but the Killshot pillow looks like a good gift:
