A rug that turns into a laundry bag. "The perfect gift for teenagers, students and the lazy other half." [via]

The design looks like a multiple-dismemberment crime scene.

Towels and sheets already do this.

it's as if they've been monitering my room and thinking, "How can we capitalize on his utter helplessness as a human being?"

I think it's funny. Although, rooms needing the special-ed laundry bag are also rooms that might not have the spare space for a rug.

Can we fold up sites like this and launder them?

...clothes are chucked on the stylish Laundry Rug, where they will stay until wash-day comes around.

...or until the rug ceases to be stylish/visible at which point you'll be back to square one, minus fifty-eight bucks. Sixty-nine Canadian.

30gbp seems a tad steep for what is apparently a round piece of some kind of fabric with a drawstring around the edge.

Or maybe I'm just cheap.

Next: Dorm that turns into a dumpster.

Well, if you're that lazy, you certainly wouldn't make one on your own.

Do they do wallpaper that takes photos of the contents of my room, and automatically writes up listings and posts them on eBay when I get close to my overdraft limit?

Does this wallpaper produce shipping labels?

this is a great idea. Unfortunately, I lack the space to use it. Blast!

The Mafia has been doing this for years.

Rocks. I agree with puke and cry, but in practice my socks end up on the floor anyway...

Hilarious!

But they're not as stylish when you leave them on the floor! This rug seems to be for vain and lazy people as opposed to just lazy people.

apparently it has "chords", which is more than the GuitarBot can say.

I've found these collapsible hampers to be very useful. The local dollar store has them in lots of colors. But those folding Ikea hampers break apart the moment you try to use them.

This differs though in that now you have something that's actually supposed to be on the ground, rather than throwing a blanket out on your floor. A small difference, perhaps, but a difference all the same.

I DO like the outlining of the 'dead clothing', ky00t!

LunaticFringe: Upon further review, that seems to be what you're saying. Vain, I am.

So now the target market is vain and lazy students of law or semantics.

Damn if I don't love that as a user name. And yes, for both reasons.

What an absurd premise. Call me when they make one for quick and efficient body disposal.

I see London, I see France, I see that model's British flag panties.
If that means she's going "commando" in the picture above, it makes me more interested.

now, what was she selling?

Unspeakably brilliant.

(But wallpaper paste--so permanent.) Maybe a portable product for college dorms? A beaded curtain, or a Che Guevera poster linked to Quicken?
