Ephemera Tuesday: Radioactive Suppositories



From Environmental Graffiti:
These radioactive suppositories promised to make ‘weak discouraged men’ literally ‘bubble over with joyous vitality’ and were produced by the Home Products Company of Denver, Colorado. Soluble radium was added to a cocoa butter base in the form of a suppository and was introduced into the rectum in order to stimulate “the weakened organs that needed its vitalizing aid’. They were even shipped in plain packaging for confidentiality.
Geez!

Nine more radioactive products that people actually used here.

Spoon Rest: Cradle Your Ladle


Another fun product from Fred and Friends:
Stirring a watched pot can be tiring, especially for your spoon.
That’s why we’ve created Spoon Rest, a soft silicone pillow
especially designed to cradle your ladle. The puffy pillow will
save your stovetop and counter from stains and spills. It’s heat-
resistant, stain-resistant, and dishwasher-safe. Clear boxes.
Zzzzzzzz...

Calf & Half


Another funny product from Fred and Friends.
Generally speaking cows are more comfy in the barn than
at the table, but Calf & Half is a perfect house guest. She’s
always in a good mooooooooood, an you will be too when
you pour from this playful little pitcher. A gentle reminder of
where our cream really comes from. Hand-crafted from
double-walled glass and individually gift boxed.

Krab (Imitation, Krab with a K)


I always hear people asking the question, "how do they make fake crab?" So, I looked into it. It is pretty freakin' nasty.

Krab (with a k) is made with Surimi, a tasteless slurry/paste of processed assorted white fish with chemical flavoring and texture additives. Yum!

You can read a little about the process here.

I think this would make a great episode for How It's Made, so I made a suggestion on their site.
