### February 26 _February 26 is a day of great invention and stupidity._ On this day, someone invented the world's longest belt buckle, designed to make your trousers sag even more. Another genius came up with a 'smart' handbag that only opens for its owner and requires them to do a complicated dance before it unlocks – no wonder people are always trying to break into the woman's locker! The real kicker, though, was the invention of the marketing buzzword generator, scientific name: FiniteLingo 2.6. This terrible machine creates endless combinations of nonsensical words, presumably in an attempt to confuse customers into signing up for something they don't need. Finally, February 26th must be remembered for the 'instant cake-mix-in-a-can', a creation so dumb that it actually managed to get a patent. Now you can have your cake and eat it too - without having to do any of the work! All in all, it was a day of great inventions and even greater stupidity. Hopefully someone wiser than us will recognize what we are up against.
