Why Let Kids Have All the Fun? Get Serious Bandz Today!

Silly Bandz, meet Serious Bandz.

Silly Bandz, meet Serious Bandz.

Oh, hey guys, Happy Friday to you and yours!  In the celebratory spirit of the weekend, I offer you a look at Gizmodo’s simple but brilliant Serious Bandz.  They’re perfect for “anyone who has a dysfunctional marriage, a humdrum job, or a looming awareness of their own mortality.”  (I’ll take the “divorce” band in one of every color, please!)

Yes, the Silly Bandz craze may be over for kids, but that doesn’t mean adults can’t have some fun with rubbers.  (Ahem.)  While some grown-ups are giving out Silly Bandz in bars as a way to flirt, slipping one of Gizmodo’s broken heart Serious Bandz on your (soon-to-be-ex) partner’s wrist could also be an easy, discussion-free way to break up.

Silly Bandz, meet Serious Bandz!

They may be childish, but they’re not kidding around.

Also, I like these Serious Bandz much better than the adult Silly Band I recently confiscated from my niece.  (In the interest of discretion, I’ll just say the bracelet is black and Lisa Lampinelli would love it.  And yes, I wear it every day, along with my green rhino.  I hope he’s happy.)

These Serious Bandz were designed by Sam Pratt, who I’m sure has no intention to actually make and market the product, though I think he should.  Seriously.
