You may use your laptop’s USB ports for helpful accessories like a wireless mouse or a handy external hard drive, but for every practical gadget around, there’s a device that’s stupendously tacky and whimsical.

New job? Time to start thinking about workspace decorations. Nothing signals to new co-workers that you’re a “responsible team player” quite like a desktop aquarium (especially one that’s complete with nature sounds and in-tank lighting). And nothing broadcasts “prepared, efficient rookie” like a well-maintained organizer chock-full of pens and supplies. So, logic dictates that nothing screams “capable, expedient, and equipped office newbie” like a combination aquarium-pencil case plugged up to your desk’s computer. Sounds about right--as long as you don’t turn off the power source, ever. Fish not included.
