I'll let you decide on this one Loop N' Poop™ by Laura Stude. The Loop N' Poop™ (formerly the Strap and Crap) is a patent-pending device that helps lessen the chance of messin' your pants when participating in outdoor SHTF activities. Offered with a little humor, but it's a serious fact and something that you really might want to think about before you would need to go...just what, would you do in a situation and how would you cope with it? Do you know what would be favorable plants/leaves like Mullien or Comfrey, that you could use? do you know what Poison Ivy looks like? Do you know how to incorporate a bandanna? or find flat rocks or whatever? Maybe, knowing how to make some DIY Homemade Baby Wipes to carry along, would be a good idea to keep in your BOB...

I loved this comment

You have got to be fucking kidding me. This is a gag gift and a shitty one (pun intended) at that. I hope you aren't really considering this as a viable business venture! You've been working for a year with engineers on a rope to tie around a tree to shit on? People like you make me hate everyone. You should be embarrassed.

I'll just wait for the Kickstarter!

It reminds me of a lot of the Japanese chindōgu...

Japanese art of inventing ingenious everyday gadgets that, on the face of it, seem like an ideal solution to a particular problem. However, chindōgu has a distinctive feature: anyone actually attempting to use one of these inventions would find that it causes so many new problems, or such significant social embarrassment, that effectively it has no utility whatsoever. Thus, chindōgu are sometimes described as "unuseless" – that is, they cannot be regarded as "useless" in an absolute sense, since they do actually solve a problem; however, in practical terms, they cannot positively be called "useful".
