This Is a Test Product and Nothing Will Be Sent to You. Also available new and used but with the dust-cover missing from Mythic Pictograms who presumably think that it's a "no prize" [via].

Nothing is only 1 cent new. If you want the collectible nothing though it's $9.95. You should stock up on all the nothing you can find. The 1000x markup could make you a fortune some day.

For that kind of money, you could get three inflatable toasts!

"Our nada who art in nada, nada be thy name thy kingdom nada thy will be nada in nada as it is in nada. Give us this nada our daily nada and nada us our nada as we nada our nadas and nada us not into nada but deliver us from nada; pues nada. Hail nothing full of nothing, nothing is with thee."

It's the reviews that make this item wonderful...

A bad review:
"Air! Tainting my box of nothing! I opened it up and found Lord knows what all: oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, traces of inert gases! Inert Gases, you know, the kind that just sits around doing nothing all day.

Oh, and before you say it, I know this wasn't air from my house that rushed in to fill the empty space in the box of nothing because my air smells like Glade Plug-in, and this air did not smell like Glade. So, obviously, this air has been contaminating my box of nothing from the git go.

I ordered a box of nothing, and I should get a box of nothing. It's a zen thing...how can I possibly attain Enlightenment with a box full of air?

This is the worst five dollars I ever spent."

This is a test.

For the next 60 seconds, this station will conduct a test.

This is only a test.

Who is buried in Grant's Tomb?

Was it
(a) General Grant
(b) a Pell Grant
(c) Gogi Grant
(d) Grant Imihara
or (e) All of the Above?

This has been a test.

If this had been a pop quiz, you would have been instructed to use a #2 pencil.

I'm pretty sure I already have this boxed up somewhere.

Is it just me who finds the reviews on Amazon novelty products painfully unfunny, then? After the first few they always come across as somewhat desperate me-too-I'm-funny attempts.

(See also: the 1165 reviews on the Tuscan Whole Milk. Oh be still my aching sides.)

I have a good number of boxes filled with genuine Swiss keller (basement) air, emblazoned with a variety of corporate logos. These boxes have spent 2 years in a genuine Swiss basement, fortified for use as a fallout shelter, next to a Swiss air cleaner (for fallout shelter use). I was saving them for the next move, but would consider legitimate offers.

You'd think that it would at least qualify for Super Saver shipping.

Don't get ripped off. I have plenty of nothing right here. If you want some you can have it for free. But you have to pick it up. I don't deliver nothing.
