For about $8 USD, Australian-based company Ship Your Enemies Glitter will send your worst enemy an anonymous letter informing them how terrible they are - and, as the name suggests, it will be filled with a s**tload of glitter that the site says will be "mixed in with the note thus increasing maximum spillage."
We were reminded this past Christmas of how annoying glitter can be when we had the bright idea to spruce up our gift wrapping with sparkly green ribbon. The darn things got all over our floors, clothes, hands...we'd get ready the next morning and notice random specks on our faces. We ain't Ke$ha!
Well, imagine that nuisance times a thousand.
Anxious to glitterfy someone who's wronged you? Not so fast. Founder Matthew Carpenter, who launched the brilliant service earlier this week has disabled the "Buy Now" button for the time being.
He wrote, "Purchasing has been temporarily suspended. You guys have a sick fascination with shipping people glitter. We've received all orders & working through them. There was a tonne (sic) so be patient."
Apparently, the 22-year-old entrepreneur underestimated the crazy amount of people who were interested in some harmless payback. In fact, it looks like it's all been too much to handle and he's ready to throw in the towel. Yesterday, he (sarcastically?) tweeted that he wanted to sell the highly popular business.
We're not sure when you'll be able to place a new order, but you can always mail a glitter bomb to an adversary yourself for free 99. Well, it won't exactly be free 99, but you know what we mean.
