The power of the mind

Slightly bored random word searches have revealed something truly amazing.

It's a real patent issued in the United States in 2000.

A unique painting process and an associated kit including the materials required for practicing the method. The method includes the acts of preparing a protective covering on a work surface, preparing a background media by placing it on the protective covering on the work surface, placing a reservoir on the protective covering, filling the reservoir with a paint, dipping the posterior of the infant in the paint, and stamping the posterior on the background media to create stamping prints.
Yes, infant. Yes, posterior. Someone has patented the art of painting with the posterior of an infant.

I wish I'd thought of that.

There are quite a few more obscure patents too. The Beerbrella and this animal toy are must views, for different reasons.
