It’s the ultimate revenge.
Anyone who has ever been within three feet of glitter knows that it’s the evil gift that keeps on giving. That’s why a group of brilliant Australians have launched an online service called “Ship Your Enemies Glitter.”
This explosive gag gift, brought to our attention by Reddit, is exactly what it sounds like. For about 10 Australian dollars—$8 in good old USD—they will pack an envelope full of glitter and send it anywhere in the world.
The package will also include a note telling the recipient exactly why they’re receiving the gift of glitter. As an added bonus, glitter will be mixed in with the note to increase glitter exposure and subsequent spillage.
For legal reasons, the Daily Dot cannot encourage the unsolicited sending of glitter envelopes. If you choose to do so of your own volition, at least think it through first. A review of questionable authenticity posted on the site serves as a warning:
For my 1 year anniversary I didn’t know what to get my wife so I bought this thinking it would be funny. It wasn’t, I’m now divorced, broke & living with my best friend. I’d like to talk with the owner to get a refund & discuss damages. You can reply directly to this email address.
Once upon a time, glitter was a weapon in the United States. Gay-marriage supporters used “glitter bombing” to literally bombard conservative political candidates in the months leading up to the 2012 presidential election.
Make a list of the terrible people in your life. Then make their day sparkle.
Update 3:32pm CT, Jan. 14: Mathew Carpenter, who created the service, would now like you to stop using it.
