MOUTHPIECE - July 17, 2018
I'm always amazed of the inventions that have been invented. The refrigerator, the television, parachute pants, the pet rock - you know, stuff like that.
The thing that I find more amazing that those things that I listed above are those many inventions that shouldn't have been invented or thought of as an idea of something that needed to be invented, then created, tested, and then unleashed on the general population.
Today, I have included a list of The Best (or Worst) of Useless Inventions ever invented. It's got quite a few gems that should have never been more than a bad idea. Take a look, have a laugh and enjoy all of the other good stuff in this week's Mouthpiece.

The story is fine, the script is fine, it's a stellar cast, and yet somehow you're just not buying it? It's usually because a major role has the wrong actor in it. It's not that the person can't act. They were just dead-wrong for the role, and it shows.
