They named it PediSedate? Sounds like a sedative for your feet.

Well playing gameboy for extended periods does tend to make my feet fall asleep.

Oh my god... my cousin was playing with the booster boy during my little sister's holy communion YEARS AGO! I remember he got so frustrated, that he wanted to switch with my gameboy pocket :P
1/20/2013 1:30:06 AM
He brought a Booster Boy into a Church? He must have been a very pure soul for God not to smite him on that very spot. XD
1/20/2013 3:42:47 AM
Lol, it was at the after-party! I'm almost certain he would have been struck down by lightning if he brought it in church!

I don't know why you dump on the solar charger - it means you charge up the batteries and then play, not that you play while charging.As for the Sewing machine - while 400 $ is a bit expensive, computer-driven sewing machines for home use were coming out. I can see some overlap that people who were kids in the 80s and bought a gameboy were adults in the 2000s and happy to still be able to use the gameboy lying around. (I assume you could programm additional patters instead of just using the ones on the cartridge?)Alternativly, if the parents spend several 100 $ on the gameboy, why not choose a sewing machine that will let them get some use out of the gameboy, too?

Rechargeable batteries do the same thing though, and you can charge them even when it's dark out, plus use them for other things like phallic shaped vibrating sex toys. Seriously though, for half of this stuff I was just trying to write some jokes. It's far from any sort of comprehensive list of bad accessories, and more of an excuse for me to make people laugh.

I had the magnify glass for my orginal GB, and it sucked, even as a kid I was like wtf. But DUDE, holy crap, I kind of want a sonar for my e-tablet now or laptop. laptop + boat = win.

The Glucoboy thing kind of reminds me of the pokéwalker, the pedometer they packaged with Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. It would reward you for distance you walked and/or jogged by unlocking access to new areas where you could find rare monsters and items. Just one problem... you didn't actually need to walk with it. I did, but when I didn't feel like that I would also hold it in my hand and shake it up and down, and I read stories on the internet of people strapping it to paint mixers for an hour or two....also, I'm pretty sure this makes me a gaming addict: I actually kind of wish I could find a glucoboy, even though I'm not diabetic, just because I'm curious as to whether or not the games it comes with are any good.

Just one thing to say: in regards to number one, medical sedation for a surgical procedure is NOT irresponsible and is not anything like taking acid.
1/17/2013 7:44:47 PM
I know man. Actually, the PediSedate is a pretty good idea. I had a few trips to the hospital as a kid that would have been made far easier for me if I had been given one of those things. But as I was doing research for this one and came across the pictures of a kid holding the gameboy with a nitrous mask on, I couldn't help but crack up, envisioning kids sitting at home after dinner and breathing in gas while stomping goombas. You gotta admit that at first glance, the thing is pretty bizarre looking.
1/18/2013 10:50:58 AM
It is funky looking. Actually, when I first saw the picture of the PediSedate, without any context, my first thought was that it was some sort of "smell-o-vision for the Gameboy" machine.
1/18/2013 6:48:28 PM
The PediSedate just looks like what would happen if you asked Frank Booth to design a gaming accessory.
1/16/2013 2:17:34 PM
At some point in a comic career you have to take the pie in the face. You now have that covered. P.S. Laughed my ass off. P.S. It is now my what's left of my life goal to find the PediSedate. (cue Clannad's "I will find you.")
1/16/2013 10:13:18 PM
If you find one, I will pay you my entire life savings for it. *checks his bank account* 17 dollars. Damn.

Coming up next on the Oldschoo' Review! The Top 9 Sexiest Nintendo outfits! (Yeah, I'm a big fuckin' geek...but that is seriously a cute outfit.)
1/16/2013 9:54:52 AM
I really, really hope no one considers Mario a sex symbol. Although sadly, I could see Ron Jeremy playing Mario in Super Mario XXX, with Porn Critic loving every moment of that movie.
1/16/2013 8:41:20 PM
wait.....that HASN'T been done already?
1/17/2013 2:22:48 AM
Actually, it has. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lbQd2bd1Z0
1/16/2013 8:43:19 PM
I like the girl in the outfit....and the outfit as well. Insert my battery in her back compartment indeed.
1/16/2013 6:05:11 AM
I wonder if the Glucoboy came with a copy of Captain Novalin...
1/15/2013 11:31:03 PM
Weed, whippets and the PediSedate. Johnny's got you covered everyone! It's nice to know that Nintendo subtly didn't forget that their systems did attract an older demographic with the PediSedate. Those things must be worth a fortune if they go on Amazon!
1/16/2013 1:52:20 AM
The second you see one, let me know. Someone has gotta own one of those fuckers, and it might as well be me. :p
1/15/2013 9:49:17 PM
I want a PediSedate.....no lie
1/15/2013 9:54:58 PM
Me too man. I really did look around to see if I could find one, but no luck. But there's GOTTA be someone out there who has one...
1/18/2013 6:52:46 PM
I want one too, just so I can have an excuse to scream "DON'T YOU LOOK AT ME! DON'T YOU FREAKING LOOK AT ME! MOMMY!!!!! MOMMY!!!!!" at people.
1/15/2013 9:43:51 PM
Sewing Machine? are you serious? And sonar? da fuck?
1/15/2013 8:11:44 PM
What the hell, why does number 1 exist? XDThis was funny, great work again Johnny
1/15/2013 9:55:25 PM
Glad you enjoyed it man! It was a lot of work, but a hell of a lot of fun to make!
1/15/2013 10:41:19 PM
Pretty awesome, man. When you showed the sewing machine I was half convinced you were making shit up. :)
1/16/2013 1:55:41 AM
The Singer Izek is completely real! And apparently, it actually kicks ass! Judging from the reviews I read about it, it shouldn't even be on this list. But for me personally, the idea of paying 400 bucks to connect my gameboy to a sewing machine is...well....actually pretty fucking cool, but completely asinine at the same time.Buttonholer...heh....
1/16/2013 6:13:01 AM
In a twisted way it makes sense. N2O is used in dentistry as a sedative, but if you just slap a mask on a kid, they're probably going to freak out. Disguise it as a game accessory and they might not really notice until they're too zonked to care. I mean, it's clearly not (designed) for home use.
