weird vending machines

I noticed several years ago that airports started having vending m achines where you could buy cameras, ipods, and other electronics. That's great if you forgot yours or ended up with a crazy-endless delay. I just found this article that shares some of the weirdest vending machines all over the world. The pictures wouldn't size down, but you get the idea.

A few of my favorites:

Hairy crabs in China. They're kept cool so they are sleepy but not dead.

A flat iron for a few bucks for a few minutes.

Need toilet paper?

If you need fried chicken, french fries, pizza, a bike, a Bently, a penthouse condo in Miami, they have a machine for that, too. Awesome.


  1. I'm sure that the heat would kill the lice, but would you really want to use a communal flat iron? Seems gross to me...

  2. Ha, and here I thought the flat iron was a freakin fantastical idea! Obviously commenter #1 does not agree ;) Thanks for stopping by, I love your jewelry making skills. I am hoping if I find more chains at thrift stores I'll add those necklaces to my etsy shop. They look pretty darn cute in real life. And I really hope that doesn't make me seem like I am tootin' my own horn. Oh goodness, I'll just stop now. If you're interested I have two giveaways going on on my blog.
    This one ends tonight at midnight PST

    And this one ends next friday 3-25-11

  3. Wow how interesting!! The craziest thing I have seen in a vending machine was underwear. Thanks for sharing
