Enterosgel, The Inert Gel


The makers of Enterosgel, an unflavored siloxane gel, claims that it “cleanses the gut” and has anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and protective effects on the liver and kidneys. It does not do any of these things, because siloxane gel is inert. It’s generally safe to eat, so it probably won’t hurt you. Treating acute diarrhea is also indicated as a use of Enterosgel, but I haven’t found any studies in which polymethylsiloxane was shown to be effective in treating diarrhea.

The highlight is the five-star customer review that says “Tastes better than Smecta!” (I’ve linked to Smecta there, in case you’re curious about Smecta.)

Food Cubby: Keep Your Food From Touching Your Food


Food Cubby is a pair of silicone bumpers you stick to your plate and use to separate your food from each other. You know, if you’re eating buttered peas, unsauced pasta, and fruit cocktail together as a meal. “I can’t wait to give these to my picky adult son,” says one customer.

As another reviewer notes, though, it doesn’t work on plates that aren’t completely flat, and the whole thing sidesteps the fact that not being able to eat your food if it touches other food is a problem which isn’t best solved by purchasing a piece of rubber.

Stranger Things Cookbook


There is nothing I could write that would cast this book in a worse light than simply copying and pasting the authors’ own description of their work, which follows:

The hilarious duo behind successful spoof cookbooks such as Baking Bad, Game of Scones, and The Walking Bread is back with Stranger Fillings, a parody cookbook based on THE hit show of 2016, Netflix’s Stranger Things. Featuring recipes such as Demogorgon-zola Tartlets, Friends Don’t Li(m)e Pie, Baked Brenners, and Barb’s Mystery Dip, there will be no shortage of great puns and delicious, edible baked treats.
