35 Rude and Cheeky Creations

From Swearing Desk Turtles to Rude Bathroom Scales

— March 2, 2009 — Naughty
Pop culture has a strange affinity to products and ads that are cheeky, edgy or downright rude. These in-your-face innovations celebrate this odd obsession.

Why are we so drawn to rude innovations? Perhaps it's because they're the antithesis to popular conventions of how we are to act and conduct ourselves. Desk accessories like Terry the Turtle express the profane pent-up emotions that we aren't free to voice aloud.

Many of the rude products and ads below involve children. We so often see children as innocent, but we all know that kids get away with far cheekier behavior than adults do. Check out these examples and more below.
