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?

Not strictly relevent
My friend and I were in the first flushes of independence, and were off to the big city to spend our hard-earned pence. Whilst in the tackiest street in town, on which there were, count them, seven pound shops, we found boxes of crappy dog figurines in straw baskets (12) for the eponymous price. Budding capitalists that we were, we each bought a handful. Once home, we removed the shikty looking straw, re-covered the baskets with fabic offcuts and flogged them in his parents pet shop for a quid a pop. They sold quickly, and we got high on cheap sherbet. Happy days...

Length? One time only, they'd sold out when we went back.

(First real post! Only took me a year...)
