When astronaut Alan Shepard sat atop the Redstone rocket, waiting to be launched into space, reporters asked him what he was thinking about. His reply? “The fact that every part of this ship was built by the low bidder.”

Here are some additional products that also appear to have been built by the lowest bidder. They’ll leave you scratching your head and wondering, who thought this was a good idea?

First of all, this coffee mug is basically impossible to drink out of, thanks to the giant hole in the center of the Batman design. Secondly, this mug wouldn’t even hold that much liquid. This is the coffee mug that no one deserves or needs right now.

It traps the hand of whoever pulls the alarm. What could possibly go wrong? What’s that? Everything? Oh. Right.

Open the fridge to open the stove, move the trash can to open the drawer… This is the worst Rube Goldberg device I’ve ever seen in my life.

It’s moments like this when you ask yourself, “Do I really need this toy to light up?” Honestly? It’s probably not worth it.

I have only one question for this elevator. WHY?! Oddly enough, this isn’t even the worst elevator on the list…

This is the worst elevator on the list:

Everyone’s favorite part of riding in the elevator is taking 12 minutes to find the button for the floor you’re going to. Coming across this picture was actually very convenient for me because I was just wondering what an elevator in Hell might look like. I assumed more fire would be involved, but I was clearly thinking too small.

Surprisingly enough, this bathroom sink is not smeared with anything:

But don’t pretend that you wouldn’t do the most extreme double take ever when you walked into the bathroom. I don’t know where this specific countertop should go, but the bathroom is absolutely the worst option.

It’s over here…or over here…or maybe over here? Actually, at this point, there are McDonald’s restaurants pretty much everywhere. Maybe this spinning sign is a really efficient way to advertise them all.

This. Spider-Man. Is. Wearing. Underwear. Why? Why?! WHY?!

How can you tell the difference? You can’t! Isn’t that fun?!
