These balloon finds prove that people can't get enough of those wondrous, round-shaped rubber inflatables. Who knew something as simple as a balloon and be used in so many inventive ways?

Unsurprisingly, the visual appeal of a floating balloon has been used by advertisers to peddle their wares, but balloons have also been used extensively by scientists to carry materials into the atmosphere. You'll also find used balloons being used as furniture material. But my favorite of these balloon finds though has got to be the balloons given away by the Museum of Sex to promote an exhibit on oral sex. Let's just say, as the balloon expands, so too does the pleasure of the illustration on the inflatable ball of joy.
