The most bizarre item I have bought online, this is the "Talking lips speakerphone". You clip the microphone to your cellphone's speaker and the lips move in sync with the callers voice. (At least it's supposed to. It's pretty cheesy!)

$1.99 at woot.com, during a strange sales event called a "Woot-off".

The red lips were made by hanging a red apron to the right of it, so it was reflected in the chrome lips.

Thanks for all the great comments on this. I was not aiming for a reaction of "WOW", but rather "WTF?" and the comments told me I was on target.

now that i know what it is, i want one! at the time of voting, however, i had no clue, though i thought it looked like lips. the blown out part in the upper left corner didn't appeal to me either. i like the red reflection in the chrome.

Going out on a limb here: I have no idea what this is, nor exactly what "woot!" means, but whether it is part of an automobile, kitchen cement mixer, sexual aid or trendy electronic device, it is distractingly enticingly portrayed.

I can't really tell what this is. Plus the reflections in the metal are not very appealing at all.

Leaving comment because of low vote.
