This sure must have looked good on the drawing board. Everybody crowded around oohing and ahhing over how popular this would be with the sailors. Sailors love lighthouses like prisoners love soap.

No longer satisfied with just the function provided, shoppers need to constantly be entertained when using consumer items. Integrating a sense of whimsy into everyday purchases could help companies garner a wider interest in their products.
