TwoDaLoo is one commodious commode. It's the "first toilet two people can use at the exact same time," says the Web site for the seller, WiseRep.com, and "brings couples closer together." But you'll have to be flush with cash to buy a TwoDaLoo: It costs $1,400, and the company only takes orders of a dozen or more at a time. Concerned about indelicate noises or just want to multitask? An "upgraded version" includes a TV and an iPod docking station.

These devices look identical, and both are said to "trim, taper, and style any length hair like a pro." They're sold in the same catalog, Dr. Leonard's. But the one on the left is said to be for people and costs $12.99; the one on the right is said to be for animals and costs $7.99. We asked a Dr. Leonard's customer-service rep about the difference. "Do you want to know my opinion?" she replied. "In my opinion, there is no difference, so definitely go for the cheaper one." You now have permission to use Trim-A-Pet to groom a two-legged friend.
