Yet Another Quirky Consumer's Guide
To Great Garbage for Better Living

Let's admit it, here at the Isotope we're out and out suckers for trying the new (and potentially awful) products that proliferate store shelves in gas stations, electronics stores, mini-markets, and urban boutiques. Perhaps it was all the new inventions that brought Reed Richards and family to strange new worlds in the Fantastic Four comics we read as youngsters or perhaps it was drooling over the sexy new worlds of commodity that we found in old 1950's catalogues for kitchens of the future, but whatever the motivation we love testing out devolutionary new product strangeness wherever and whenever we can find it.

Back in May the Isotope Communique profiled The Impulsive Buy, which celebrates the wonderful world of foodstuffs of the junk, fast, trash, and non-nutritious kinds, and today we bring you a newly launched quirky consumer's guide to make your life better.

Strange New Products showcases such modern-day miracles as Wi-Fi routers for your automobile, Anheuser-Busch's sure-to-be-awful new malt beverage energy drink (pictured), Fertility Text Messaging, anti-bacterial pens, wireless USB sewing machines, and even the gotta-get-yourself-a-can Horse Piss Brand Beer.

Get with the times and make Strange New Products a daily stop. The Isotope endorses this product and/or service.
