gerbil shirt ta

By Evan Ackerman

If I had a shirt like this, I’m sure I’d be happy as this strange looking boy is. Totally Absurd Inventions insists that this is an actual US patent, although I haven’t been able to find it on the USPTO website, so I can’t do much besides relate what they say about it:

The Gerbil Shirt wraps your torso in plastic tube passageways, making your bod a super highway of fun for Binky and Bart. The interior surfaces are textured for traction and have air vents for easy breathing.

The inventor suggests you can clean the Gerbil Shirt by attaching it to a faucet (remove pets first please), and you should avoid collisions and falls that could cause pet panic.

  1. My hamster, Fatty3, did the cutest thing last night. He wanted to play out in the balcony so he came up to me and stood on his hind legs to attract my attention then ran to the balcony door to wait for me to open it for him.
    This has nothing to do with the post whatsoever.

  2. Maybe the inventor is a gerbil seller. If kids wore this with their pets inside, there would be many accidents and sales on gerbils would go up. I wonder how safe the gerbil would be when the kid is running from a gang of bullies…
