Choice announces the 2009 Shonky Awards

QantasEvery year, Choice magazine names and shames products that they deem the biggest failures, rip offs or just pure junk in the Shonky Awards.

This year QANTAS and Tiger Airways took honours for “Sky High Surcharges” in honour of their excessive credit card charges, the “Blinding us with Dodgy Science Award” was hotly contested but was eventually awarded to L-Oreal Evive and the “Plugging Stuff and Nonsense Award” went to a skeptics favourite, the wall plug that claims to save you up to 30% off your electricity bill, but in fact does nought.

Visit the website to see the full list and watch the parody videos, particularly the one about cosmetics accurately named “Cosmetic Companies; we make shit up” with the tag-line “profecal B”.

Very amusing.
