The Human Slingshot Game May Be Worst Idea Yet

Four human beings. A giant rubber band. Rapid, repetitive and violent motion. If this isn't a bad idea, we don't know what is.

By Cassandra Khaw. Published 9 months ago

At first glance, the Human Slingshot Game may appear to be a silly little gag put on the Internet for no other reason than to invite some good-natured chortling. It isn't. It's real and it only costs $75 to take this giant rubber band home. Flying Spaghetti Monsters help us all.

I can sort of see where they were going with this. Everyone loves slingshots, right? As grown people, we must miss the halcyon days of shooting pebbles at each other and having dimes ricochet off poor, unfortunate squirrels, right? And, really, who doesn't enjoy a friendly, contact-heavy tussle with their best buds? Total recipe for success. Right?

Honestly, I can almost hear the noses breaking from here. Though the developers are quick to reassure would-be buyers that all will be well so long as you maintain a beeline for a person's right, it's hard to picture this not somehow ending in tears. Still, if you're particularly agile or just a glutton for punishment, you can put your order for the Human Slingshot Game here. Remember, kids, it's only dangerous if you hit someone.

    Good lord. Why aren't these kids inside playing video games?

    Sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen. Is the winner the last person without a concussion?

    Terrible idea, though I'm sure I'd have a go if someone brought it to a party.
