This is a question Cheap Tat

OneEyedMonster remindes us about the crap you can buy in pound shops: "Batteries that lasted about an hour and then died. A screwdriver with a loose handle so I couldn't turn the damn screw, and a tape measure which wasn't at all accurate."

Similarly, my neighbour bought a lawnmower from Argos that was so cheap the wheels didn't go round, it sort of skidded over the grass whilst gently back-combing it.

What's the cheapest, most useless crap you've bought?

James Bond watch
I bought a watch in Bangkok that was also a lighter. You pressed the bezel and a flame came out of the top of the dial.

I was pretty smug until a girl came over and asked me for a light, and managed to give myself an almighty electric shock and burn her fringe with a giant flame at the same time.
