Funny Foto Friday: Solar Bikini

Just a quick one today as I am flying to Iowa to run the Marathon to Marathon!

So, I am as "green" as the next guy.  I sort out my recyclables (whenever my wife is watching) and I have even started to shut off the lights when I am not in the room (actually that one is because I am cheap).  But, I can't help but think that we've gone a little too far with this one:

Solar Powered Bikini - I didn't realize implants needed power?

Forever a good friend, RunningLaur sent me over a link to a fully functional (i.e. - covers the naughty bits) solar powered bikini that has a USB charger outlet to be used in charging your iPod.  The article says that not only can you wear the bikini in the pool, but after you dry off you can hook in your iPod and have a mobile dance party.

Surprisingly, the thing "only" costs $200, which I guess is a small price to pay to look like every single woman in any B level Science Fiction movie I've ever seen.  Of course, the real question that I have is if they make a speedo version.  Although, with all of the controversy about cell phone radiation and guys' man bits, if I did wear one I'm sure my next kid would have 3 nipples.  Lucky bastard.  Happy Friday!

Umm, no thanks? Though that gives me an idea for a body-heat powered fan for when I'm running on the treadmill...

So if I wear one of those, I'll look like her? Maybe for one day.

don't be a wiener Adam! You don't want any electric devices around your junk at this time in the twitter-posting controversy

The Banter said...

I'm sorry, but your picture is relatively unclear on some important details. Where is the USB port? Do, umm, larger surface area suits charge larger devices, such as computers or small automobiles? How about color options? Please follow up on these very important issues.
