Dept. of Useless Kitchen Gadgetry

Backstory: My mom is addicted to the Shopping Channel.

Mom: Hey guess what I bought? These gloves that, when you wash a potato while wearing them, they scrub the potato skin off for you! Neat!

Me: Mum, you like potatoes with the skins on. You always go on about how the only healthy part of a potato is the skin.

Mom: OMG you’re right! What have I done!
