Who Buys This Stuff Anyway?

But I'm stuffed if I know why anyone would pay $49 for a "Happy Birthday" singing, rotating cake stand with lights, that looks like a reject from the props department of Close Encounters. Or $40 for the showerhead attachment to "Give Your Shower a Double Head".
Then there's the curved clear plastic hairspray face shield, so you can see while you spray your hair. And the slip-on shoe shufflers, so you too can "Wear muddy boots indoors!"
I'm just wondering WHY, here.
