Ever wonder if people have too much disposable cash? If you were ever in doubt, consider the question answered with the introduction of the USB Desktop Humping Dog. No, I have too much to do to make this up...this was a real advertisement that was on the side of a competing "blog" hosting site.
Imagine calling Dell tech support... "Hi, I'm having problems with my computer. Everything was working fine until I plugged the humping dog attachment into my USB port, and now none of my USB devices work anymore." Humping WHAT attachment? Even better: "I need service on my computer. I plugged a humping dog attachment into the USB port on my laptop, and it caught on the corner of the table and his hoo-hoo snapped off inside. Now I can't plug anything into that port anymore. Please have someone come and extract the humping dog's member from my USB port." "Sorry sir, we can't help you. You plugged a Desktop Humping Dog into a laptop, and this misuse of technology isn't covered under the warranty."
Now I'm all for humorous things, and I seriously see the humor in this (as if "seriously" and "humor" can co-exist in the same sentence). Really, if this were an April fools joke, I'd ROTFL (isn't that "roll on the floor laughing"? I don't know). On the other hand I have no problem with the empty USB ports on my computer. A humping dog would not give me the feeling that the otherwise unused USB port finally had a purpose, albeit a strange and ridiculous one.
What happens if you plug a USB 1.0 humping dog into a high-speed USB 2.0 port? Is it backwards-compatible (no pun intended), or will the poor dog hump itself to death?
Back to reality. I've had my fun for the day.
