Over 600 Ranker voters have come together to rank this list of The 19 Weirdest Patents Ever Filed

The world is filled with wannabe inventors. People looking to get rich simply by filing an endless number of funny patents. It’s the inventor version of buying a lottery ticket, and apparently the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office seems to have no standards whatsoever. And for that, humanity can only thank them. These are the weirdest things you didn't know were patented. Someone actually thought these crazy items were a good idea and paid someone good money to waste their time filing the patent paperwork. Inventors need to stop wasting their time with pointless inventions like these and focus on making a pillow that permanently smells like fresh cinnamon rolls.
