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?

Five for a pound
Lovely new hat, cheap new lighter. I'm sure you can guess the rest (in case you can't, a nine foot - or so it seemed at the time - flame shot out, surprising me and said hat).

Luckily, it was a black fake fur Russian-style affair (the hat, I mean), so while the texture was irrevocably ruined in a line up the front, you couldn't really tell by looking. And you could wear it back to front so as to make it even less obvious. At least, that's what I told myself.
