    Alright heres the deal, Ive this design project and Im having a tough time deciding what to do.

    Assignment: select an "everyday" object and substitute its materials with un-practical materials.

    Examples: a wire toobrush, steel wool toilet paper, wax frying pan.

    I want something totally original but am having a tough time decideing what, if any of you have ideas that would be awesome.

    Wow, that's a tough one. I can't even think of something at all right now. How about toothpicks made from sugar? Lame I know, but it's late!

    How about a toilet made from tortilla chips and hot salsa. You could call it Crap 'N Snack, the toilet you can snack on while you get your poop on. Your slogan can be, "Blast a dookie, and your taste buds!"

    You can also steal the one from the Simpson's. Sun 'N Run, the suntan lotion that's also a laxative.

    What about making a handle? You can make it out of anything, but it's totally useless unless it is stuck to something else, like a portable TV (or a fork?).... the handle makes the TV portable, but the TV also makes the handle useful... (even better, make the handle out of something that melts in your hand, like ice)... or make an ice pick out of ice... the handle would melt and the pick would shatter if you actually used it...

    Check this guy out too... his website has a couple of downloadable (.pdf) books, on puns and oxymorons (including visual ones) that might give you some pointers, like a ship made out of sand, floating sugarcubes etc. (btw, Patrick Hughes' reverse perspective paintings are fantastic if you ever get the chance to see one...)

    Stainless steel windows...they'll never shatter in a hurricane!

    How about a plexiglass front door, so you can always see who's at the door before you decide to open it!
