From the “I thought I’d seen everything but -” file comes one of the most unnecessary accessories for the 21st century.  This is for that hard-to-buy-for person with ties to the state of Maine who seems to have everything except a conversation piece.

If you were one of those people who shelled out twenty bucks or so for the ‘Singing Fish’ or ‘Dancing Santa,’ then this may be right up your alley.  It’s the ‘Lobster iPhone case.’  Yup, you too can snuggle your precious device within the confines of a red plastic sea creature.  While you can’t boil it and eat it when you’re done, you’ll certainly get people talking.

CNN spoke to the inventor who said, "I promise in seventy years this will be relevant." I can only say – I hope not!  What silly accessories have you spent money on and kicked yourself later?  Tell us on facebook.
