When someone puts on earbuds, they're pretty much telling the rest of the world to not bother them. It's the universal symbol for shut the hell up. But if someone put on this Magic Pencil earbuds? That's a conversation starter. I mean, these earbuds make it look like a pencil has been stabbed in one ear and out the other. They're hilarious!
I'd totally extend this motif and get an arrow, a knife, a sword, a lightsabre and whatever else long and slender object to make it look like my brains been sliced. $US50 at The Fancy. [The Fancy via Apartment Therapy]
