23 Products That Made Me Think "Same"

BuzzFeed 1 week ago

A Bold and Brash painting, because I wish I was 10% as refined and cultured as Squidward Q. Tentacles.

Promising review: "Ladies and gents, I would give this six stars, but Amazon wouldn't allow it. Prepare yourself for an emotional rollercoaster upon viewing this magical piece of art. 'Belongs in the trash?' Nah. Go back to Tentacle Acres with that mindset. This is the perfect gift for the bold and/or the brash in your life. This is the finishing touch to your contemporary art collection People will be thinking they stepped up in the Louvre when they see your painting. The white gloves were a nice touch. Slightly small, but great nonetheless." —Holly

Get it from Amazon for $32.09.

A snarky mug that'll tell your least favorite coworker how you feel about them without earning you a 1:1 meeting with Linda from HR.

Promising review: "I sent a picture of me drinking from this when I announced my retirement ????" —Chris H.

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

A pad of sticky notes so you can passive-aggressively let your coworkers know they need to pay better attention. Per my last email, Sharon...

Promising review: "Gave this sticky notepad as a gift, and got a hearty laugh from everyone at the table. 'I think you heard me the first time....' Who does't really want to say this out loud?" —A. Luff

Get them from Amazon for $6.99.

A doormat to politely alert your guests that they are unwelcome...unless they have food and/or four legs and bark.

Promising review: "I purchased this mat in 2012 (according to Amazon) and as of today, six years later, it is still at my front door and still entirely effective in making people laugh (albeit far less effective in encouraging them to actually go away). In six years, it has been perpetually rained on, survived several hurricanes, been frozen, and generally abused in every way a doormat can be. It is now a bit rough around the edges; however, it is still clearly legible, isn’t really falling apart at all despite some minor fraying on the corners, and probably one of the longest lasting, cheapest purchases I’ve ever made. This mat is a terrific value for the cost. Six years ago I would have assumed that by this age in life I would be into a more polite welcome mat…nah. I’m going to re-order this one again and re-assess sometime by 2024." —smirknsmile

Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

A mashed potatoes T-shirt, because who doesn't like soft, pillowy carbs loaded with butter, bacon, and cheese?

Get it from BuzzFeed's merch line on Amazon for $21.99 (available in men's, women's, and youth sizes).

A laptop sticker for anyone who's spent the last hour drafting an email to their boss before consulting their coworkers about whether they've used too many or too few exclamation marks (does this say fun! and approachable! or do I sound like I'm screaming?) and then ultimately waited until the following week to revisit the email, read it 20 more times, and then hit send.

Promising review: "It sticks to things and confirms my incredible wit to the entire world." —KrisK

Get it from Amazon for $1.

An enamel pin so people know not to come to you with questions. I'm just here because I heard there was free food. Please do not ask me anything.

Promising review: "Great quality pin, well made, well packaged. Has a valid point on it. I wear this to all the parent things I have to attend. I wish I had this when my daughter got her first car. It would have been required to be visible on her person for each cop to read as she was issued so many tickets. Maybe I could have gotten a discount card like at the coffee shops, get 10 cops to laugh get 1 free pass on a child's ticket because she is stupid." —Greendrgon

Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

A "My Favorite Murder" keychain to honor your favorite book from the hosts of the only podcast you can be bothered to listen to every week.

Get it from Amazon for $6.76+ (available in four colors).

A creative journal that'll help you embrace and celebrate your inner weirdness. It's filled with quirky hand-drawn creatures, writing prompts, and fun activities.

Promising review: "This journal is great for kids but also for adults who are all about embracing their inner goofball. This is a playful workbook with quirky illustrations and fun exercises that help the reader explore what makes them unique. I especially enjoyed the pages that ask 'what were you taught about individuality growing up' and 'what kinds of weirdness are most important to you in a partner.' This book would be great for kids but it offers enough substance to be entertaining for adults as well. And I really appreciate the notion that individuality and staying true to oneself should be valued and celebrated. Well done!" —Lori

Get it from Amazon for $12.30.

A La Croix–esque dog toy to add to the collection because of course your son also shares your obsession with ~barkling~ water (this is a pamplemousse-only household!).

Dog owners be warned: there is a squeaker inside.

Get it from Amazon $12.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 17 styles).

A threatening oven mitt so your guests know they need to stay tf out of your tiny kitchen because they're in the way.

Promising review: "I absolutely love this. Cute and functional. I have gotten so many compliments. It's a conversation piece and I love to see it in my kitchen." —Sunshine K

Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

A stemless wine glass, because there are nights that call for some ~pour~ decisions.

Promising review: "It was the perfect gift for a friend who looks forward to seeing her baby (dog) when she gets home from working all day and looks forward to a glass of wine. The detail on the glass was beautifully done." —Ms. Helen

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

A funny fridge magnet to perfectly encapsulate your feelings about not eating bread...and pasta...and chips.

Promising review: "A funny, functional magnet for those that like magnets with an older look. It also works well to hold items onto the fridge. The magnet itself kinda reminds me of those that crave sugar and will do anything short of homicide to get it :). Overall, it is a funny magnet and/or gift to give to someone." —Andrew M.

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

A woman yelling at cat print for the meme-literate youths. Some days I'm Smudge the cat, while other days I'm 100% Taylor from RHOBH. Occasionally I am both.

Get it from Trishnagaara on Society6 for $22.99+ (available in five sizes).

A cat lady action figure to make you chuckle, because you're nothing like that at all. Uh huh, nothing wrong here! Six cats? Totally normal! Pockets filled with cat treats? But of course! Clothes *always* covered in cat hair? It'll keep you warm!

Promising review: "How do you tell a loved one their cat situation is out of control? How do you remind someone that 15 cats may be a few too many? What is step one before you call animal control? The back of the box says, 'This is not a toy.' So for me this thing is serious business. My wife loved it and although she doesn’t have 15 cats maybe this will prevent it." —D. Meeks

Get it from Amazon for $11.52.

A mini Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy to bring joy to your life. Look at this lil' guy just flapping his arms and body, 100% content with his life. *This* is what I aspire to be. *This* is what we should all aspire to be.

Promising review: "I opened the package and screamed for joy! As I placed the 9-volt battery my hands were trembling with what was going to happen next! As I turned on the wacky waving inflatable tube man I knew I have a friend for life. Someone you can really count on cheering you up when you are feeling down. He brought me such joy I started to cry with laughter and happiness." —Robert Wurstner

Get it from Amazon for $9.74.

An extraterrestrial iPhone case so people know to stay away. I'm gonna need you to stand at least five feet away from me at all times, OK? Tysm!

Promising review: "I recently purchased this case and I love it. It’s protective and also looks really nice on my phone. I have a red iPhone and this case looks really cool with it. I would recommend it 100%." —spicysofia

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $35 (compatible with iPhone X/XS, XS Max, and XR).
