The Randomest Toy I Bought this Summer

Different store in Sausalito had this. That's right "Crunching Dog."
You plug him into your USB port and he does sit-ups.
Actually I think it's a "she" because the dog is wearing a sports bra (without pants by the way).
By the way check out the abs on this bitch. (I use "bitch" in it's literal, canine sense.)

Her she is in action.

Yup, that's pretty much it.

The curious thing about this sit-ups is that she hits very hard with her back to the floor, isn it?

That's dangerous.

b ill said...

Dude. That's not right.

Forensic said...

Is it just me or is that 'bitch' giving birth to a USB port? LOL

Rachel Snyder said...

Only the Japanese could have come up with this one! ;D

Jenea said...

JOrge! you want, that Nunu have press?

HuronHighgirl said...

I really dont think thats a she... the USB port is just in the wrong area for it to be a she and it plugs into the computer so it must be a he wearing a sports bra...

Jenea said...

It is Labrador. Maybe its Vincent.

Look here:http://images.google.ru/imgres?imgurl=http://z.about.com/d/lost/1/0/Z/R/-/-/Hurley_Vincent.jpg&imgrefurl=http://lost.about.com/od/photosbyepisode/ig/Lost-10x3-Photos/Hurley_Vincent.htm&usg=__cUHN77OO35wla4E8vDlgpDwgwCs=&h=500&w=347&sz=141&hl=ru&start=2&um=1&tbnid=o-i7aIGC4Vt5WM:&tbnh=130&tbnw=90&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dvincent%2Blost%26hl%3Dru%26lr%3D%26sa%3DG%26um%3D1%26newwindow%3D1

That is wrong on so many levels.

poggy said...

That's... mesmerizing.

Thomas said...

hehe, great!

illahee said...

that's hilarious! so, basically it's a USB port cover? so weird!

four_toed_armenian said...

Um. Have you seen the HUMPING dog version of this? http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/japanfan/9c89/

*~Dani~* said...

I don't think that is a sports bra but one of those half tank tops that were popular with the boys in the 80s. Your dog USB is just from a different decade.

James Hernandez said...

Jorge,

Wow! A dog that does crunches on a thumb drive! Is Nunu jealous?

Elizabeth said...

Oh my gosh! That's almost as good as the pooping pig. Squeeze the pigs belly, and poop comes out. (It's that slimey stuff they make for kids, dyed brown!) Too funny!

Juju said...

LOL
That ain't right.
*giggle*

DoubleDAD said...

"The Donald duck theory" The period in the evolution of an animated character to act human while still maintaining enough characteristics of an animal to justify the not wearing of the appropriate articles of clothing.
This is some times confused with "the Chimpanzee theory" The period in evolution that a chimpanzee must where a diaper, but they don't need to wear pants or shorts to cover them up.

Heather Hicks said...

That is AWESOME!

Poorpooland said...

More toys, Santa.

Topanga said...

I learn more stuff when I read Jorge's blog.

I'm going to keep my eye open for that and give them at Christmas.

Mike Green said...

Um, I don't think those are abs, but rather teats. Teats of steel.

Marla said...

i love crap like this. fun stuff. check out this:

boss launcher. they also have a chicken, pig, ninja launchers too. random.

milk and cookeez said...

That is just wrong on so many levels!
It looks like it is humping your computer.

laurie said...

omg I want that.

And I don't even know why.

Miztification said...

Lol...Some of the best toys come from overseas. That's really cute. Thanks again for sharing, Jorge.

AlexisHidell said...

I have the USB humping dog. It was a Christmas gift from my boyfriend (so romantic). The ab-crunching dog is bizarre, but at least it can be used in a public place.

Stacy said...

uh

wow

Frank P. said...

Might be that she is a he, who is a triathlete ... they wear those "bras", too :)))

Deborah Godin said...

Want one! That's better than anything I ever saw on Leno.

jucavasconcelos said...

besides abs, the crouching dog does another "ability"? like 2GB storage or even, bluetooth conection?

but I must agree it is very random, maybe not the randomest toy, but maybe the randomest USB gadget I have ever seen.

Stacey B said...

That is hilarious! I wish I could plug myself into my laptop and get abs like that. I'd even let people call me a bitch!

katie! (: said...

so cute!

The Gr8 K8 said...

That...would be truly annoying...wow.

AlYaGotADo said...

Freiking hilarious dude! Gotta go though LOST coming on SciFi Channel.

thalesperes said...

very original idea for a toy...
i liked it.

Sue said...

Yet you can't rub a boy dog's belly...

Sleeping Si said...

that's kinda wrong...and pervy.

hcamel24 said...

I love it. Random toys are the best! I love my Marie Antoinette action figure, complete with head that flies off LOL

Kate and Crew said...

omg

obscene

LOL

Goof said...

You paid money for that? LOL I hope not too much. ;)

Heidi said...

Too funny. Also, while reading the post I downloaded the little video of the bitch in action. And totally forgot about it. And you know how in OS X (Leopard) the most recent downloaded item has an image next to the Trash? Yeah, I just glanced down and saw it...the miniature of the thumbnail for that video looks a little...racy. So I clicked and laughed all over again. Hopefully I'll keep forgetting about it and repeating this process for a while.

Bethany said...

That would make an awesome Yankee Swap gift.
Love it Jorge!

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

gee, I know I'm an old broad and have seen just about everything there is to see..but thats the first time I ever saw a dog hump a computer...I think I'd rather have both eyes stabbed with a number 2 pencil.

Checkie said...

I think I know what I'm getting my buddy for Christmas now (he's a personal trainer and he loves dogs). This is almost as good as the Crazy Cat Lady action figure I got my older sister last year.

You ever buy toys from Stupid.com? If not, I think you'd get a kick out of them.

Erin said...

Wow... Who comes up with this stuff? I think I'm most disturbed by her massive six-pack. But it cracks me up!

Gabrielle said...

Thats hilarious.

Capmaster said...

I wonder what was going through the inventor's mind at the time he thought it up ..."WOW! What this world really needs is a stupid USB situp dog. I'll bet people will actually BUY it, like they did the Pet Rock".

He was right. That is severely ghey, dude!

Maya99 said...

Winnie the Pooh wears a half shirt and no pants. All that time scouring the 100 Acre Wood for "Hunny" when he should have been looking for some drawers.

Nobody said...

Oooooooh, I WANT ONE!!!!!

redelf said...

I really need two of those for each of my sons!!

Movie Star Wife said...

Who thinks up this stuff? I wish I had that much time on my hands. I could probably invent all sorts of stuff. Maybe. Well maybe not.

Kristen said...

That's... a bit disturbing. I think it's the USB thingie and where it's, um, located that is a big part of the problem.

Clare said...

Disturbing AND random.

Tasha Who? said...

I got the humping version as a gag gift from ThinkGeek a few years ago.

It's funny, though... you have to admit that they are entertaining for much longer than you'd anticipate.

CoffeeJitters.Net (Judy Haley) said...

I love it - useless absurd toys like that just crack me up. One of my favorites that i have is a librarian action figure with "real shushing action"

kerenl said...

weird...

Pam said...

that is so weird.

ReNaTo UêGa said...

Weird, funny and hilarious! Hahaha
She's never tired? LOL
Although I think "she" is he. =P

Hugs Jorgeman!

The Cat Bastet said...

I'd never heard of USB toys until this post. The same day I read it, a colleague sent me this link to a talking USB Yoda:

Jorge, you need this to protect your computer!

Crushproof said...

This is awesome! It appears we share a brain on this subject... My wife usually will humor me when I buy things like this, because I just give them to one of our nieces or nephews when I have played with it enough (or humiliated myself in public with it ;)) However, if you ever get to Chicago let us know! I have quite a collection of some stores that have all kinds of stuff like this, and I would love to show you around, plus we can have a super munch fest because I also know of all the best places to eat. I am trying to get back to O'ahu again this November, but I am sure you will be busy with work. Keep up the great work Jorge! I love reading your blog!!!

Nana Ribeiro said...

Oh my! For a sec I thought she was trying to give her self a... Never mind.

But don't judge her, dogs actually do that!

jyoti said...

Very nice information. Thanks for this. Please come visit my site Shreveport Business Directory when you got time.

jyoti said...

I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Keep up the good work. Look forward to reading more from you in the future. Please come visit my site Birmingham Business Directory when you got time.

Rachel said...

Her abs look like a pan of muffins. hmmm, muffins.... excuse me while I go pop open a can of Pillsbury...

Christina Bauer said...

Wow. Just...wow. So weird.

nollyposh said...

Now you're just scaring me! X;-)

Hillary said...

First thought: Is it supposed to be incentive to workout? If I had something like that, my will to be at the computer 24/7 would compel me to throw it across the room. lol "No dog's gonna tell me to do crunches!"

Julie said...

It's even funnier when set to music - I had on some Green Day and that lil dog was rocking! :)

Sarah said...

LOL. So, how much will a Crunching Dog set you back these days?

Erica said...

Oh my. Happened to stumble across your blog through Cake Wrecks and laughed pretty hard at this post.

A good friend once sent me this strangely similar mini art book for my birthday last year. Labs With Abs

The best part, and you can see it if you scroll down, is that the cover says "so real! so tite!". An important new part of my daily vocabulary.

Cheers.
