Just as I was drifting off to a two-pints-of-beer induced sleep last night, I had an idea for a patent that would, in my semi-conscious eyes, “turn the fashion world on its head.” What was this mind blowing concept, you may wonder?
Ear plugs with long, giant feathers coming out of them. Like, to be worn as an eye catching accessory. An alternative to earrings or headpieces. Earplugs. With feathers. Really.
I can remember thinking that even if I don’t make them myself, I should file for the patent and someday make money off of it. And then extending the concept to headphone ear buds.
In the dream, the fashionable feather ear plugs looked more like this:
… And less like this:
Which, when you think about it, is really what it would look like. Never mind that no one would want to inhibit their hearing for the sake of sticking feathers in there, and that earrings work just fine, thank you very much.
