30 World’s Strangest Inventions

By Village Mayor • Feb 18th, 2009 • Category: Funny, Latest Post, The Best of Village of Joy, Weird

This post could be also called stupidest inventions, coolest inventions or the most useless inventions. It doesn’t change a thing – they are all just incredible.

Most of them are probably not new for an experienced web surfer like you, but I heard that there are some people who use Internet solely for reading Village of Joy blog, so this post might be just for them.

Happy reading!
