A Company Is Selling Boxes of Used Tissues to Help You Prepare for Flu Season
I hate to call something the dumbest product in the world because I know something dumber will always come along . . . but right now, at this moment, this is the dumbest product in the world.
Yahoo reports a company called Vaev just started selling tissues . . . that are already infested with germs. Like, someone else already sneezed into these tissues, then the company packages them up in a box and sells them to you.
For $80. That's right. $80 for a box of used tissues.
They claim that using these tissues helps build up your immune system to get you ready for flu season . . . or let you decide when you're going to intentionally give yourself the flu to get it out of the way.
Really, that's part of their marketing message.
Anyway, before you drop $80, just know that doctors are not on board. One doctor in Akron, Ohio says, quote, "That's bizarre. This seems like a total waste of money."
And one in Nashville says, quote, "This is potentially hazardous if it does work, and I don't think that it does." I really hope this product is fake and this is all just a stunt.
