For most people, pet accessories, cartoon characters and dolls are sources of comfort and amusement; with these dark humor products, however, comforting objects are twisted into grotesque and morbid monstrosities.
Editor Jamie Munro has hand-picked her top five dark humor products, offering a glimpse into a macabre market that is rarely seen by mainstream shoppers. Her number one choice comes from an Etsy user and is, quite literally, tongue-shaped soap. These bars of soap look exactly like a severed human tongue, and, as Jamie points out, would make for a great prank on unwary house guests.
Another darkly comedic creation is a series of skeletal street murals depicting beloved cartoon characters as they're dissected. Not only are their innards shown floating around them, but these characters maintain their goofy, grinning expressions as they're cut open.
These five inventive products prove that innocent objects can be injected with horrific qualities with a twist of humor.
