Ok, the fact that a person may actually need the support of these fabulous flamingo crutches probably limits the whole fiesta feel, but just looking at them makes me smile and shimmy-shake a little in my chair.

Created by Turkish designer Can Guvenir, his Flamingo crutches shouldn’t be paired with a mojito. It was created “to solve the important ergonomic and usage problems of the conventional crutches with its simple and aesthetic form instead of the using mechanism,” Naresh Chauhan reports.

Hopefully I’ll never need to use these flamingo crutches, but if I ever do, at least they’ll have a dual purpose. Actually, three! Just spray paint them hot pink and stick them in your front yard after a full recovery.
