Watch out for Flying Pigs!

I just got this oddball gift from a friend in Japan. It’s called Pitamin, a squishy lil’ oinkster you throw at the wall when life stresses you out. Its name purposely sounds like ‘vitamin’ because its supposed to make you feel better — even as you batter it to death.

Pitamin is among a long line of Japan’s ‘feel-better’ products. It’s a silicone blob that feels like a water balloon except you can’t really pop it. Push it, pull it or even sit on it, this little piggy ain’t gonna lose its cool. Just watch this video:

At first, I was pretty skeptical about its stress-relieving properties. But as I got my hands on it and flung it against the wall I felt pretty damn good. I picked it up again and threw it at the door just as my annoying roommate walked in. **SPLAT!** I felt even better.

After a bit of searching, I found other versions of the toy that look like people. They’re all men and they’re made to represent your bosses at work. (Of course, this is a mere oversight since there are plenty of mean female bosses too.) What a great concept to have voodoo dolls that you don’t need needle pins for! ***\(^o^)/***
