----- Meghan 18.12.12 14:58

The silliest thing in my kitchen is my unicorn chop sticks!

----- Shannon 18.12.12 14:57

I have a rubber rat (the squeaky kind) signed by Anne Rice (author of Interview with a Vamptire) that lives in the cupboard. I felt he was lonely, so later he got a sibling: a plastic lobster (also squeaky) signed by Alton Brown (writer/director/producer of Good Eats). The lobster isn’t of much practical use other than keeping the rat company, but the rat is a great twist-top beer bottle opener.

----- Bitsy 18.12.12 14:41

We have Fred’s diamond ice cube trays. Hee hee.

----- lisa 18.12.12 14:41

Definitely is the bamboo stick ornated with coloured strings that I use to keep the cat away from the food.

----- Carine Tran 18.12.12 14:35

My salt and pepper batteries :D

----- María 18.12.12 14:30

My penguin cookies jar I got for my birthday! 11 months out of the year he’s unseasonally festive, but that’s ok.

----- Megan 18.12.12 14:29

The silliest thing in my kitchen is not a single object, but rather a curious lineup of plants that I am sprouting in a myriad of jars that I have re-purposed - avocados, pineapples, etc…

----- Michelle 18.12.12 14:21

My companion cube cookie cutter set. Love it!

----- Mimi 18.12.12 14:13

A miner’s helmet! :)

----- Ian S. 18.12.12 14:12

Has to be the swim fins my kids keep there (don’t ask).

----- Michael W. 18.12.12 14:05

I believe that would be one of my dogs, I don’t know which one. They’re both pretty silly

----- Wehaf 18.12.12 13:58

The silliest thing in my kitchen is my “Holy Toast” Virgin Mary toast imprinter. I love that crazy lady; you never know when she’s gonna show up!

----- Darlene C. 18.12.12 13:57

Many years ago, my dad brought home an egg cuber… it’s a mold that makes a hard boiled egg square instead of round! Holy smokes… looks like you can still buy them!

----- Nick 18.12.12 13:48

its a 70s themed kitchen so macrame owls, black velvet paintings and burnt orange shag……

----- robyne 18.12.12 13:46

My plastic salt & pepper shakers with a pull string to make them shake so you don’t wear out your wrist shaking on your seasonings !

----- Ruth 18.12.12 13:45

My twin 3 year old boys who find joy and amusement in everything (and mess) in the kitchen!

----- Cortney Delgado 18.12.12 13:45

The silliest thing in my kitchen is the kitchen table — it’s barely being held together by about 2 screws at this point, and is VERY likely to say hahahaahahrhrhahahahahlaughaulghalgu, there goes your soup to the ground, sorry ‘bout my legs! Insanity.

----- Chris Stave 18.12.12 13:44

my silliest thing in my kitchen are my monkey potholders and my dead gingerbread man cookie cutters and so many other things love silly things

----- Mary 18.12.12 13:40

The boys in our house think my purple cake pop maker is silly until they eat one…

----- Lisa Oswald 18.12.12 13:36

a small can labeled “canned opossum” (I keep it next to a jar labeled “slug jelly.)

----- Ann 18.12.12 13:36

I don’t have anything really silly in my kitchen, but I’m loving that Coolamari you have up there!

----- Wendy T. 18.12.12 13:36

No word of a lie, kangaroo testicle bottle opener. I purchase quite the collection of these to bring back from the land down under for friends and family. Obviously had to keep one to myself. Unfortunately my fiance has other plans, so the openers days in the kitchen are most likely limited.. garbage day is quickly approaching.

----- Chad 18.12.12 13:32

My dog butt towel holders, one green, one orange

----- Amie 18.12.12 13:29

----- aubrey 18.12.12 13:29

I’m sure I have something sillier and can’t think of it, but I do have Fred’s Matryoshka measuring cups!

----- Abigail 18.12.12 13:28

Anything in my kitchen that has a face…products, photos on the fridge, etc. has googly eyes on it. And sometimes faceless items become alive with googly eyes too. The silliest is probably the family of unicorns with googly eyes that adorn my kitchen table. Seriously, if you want to brighten your day get some googly eyes up in there.

----- Megan 18.12.12 13:27

a voodoo doll toothpick holder

----- Karen Thomas 18.12.12 13:26

90% of the devices that are parked on my counter are silly… because they don’t get used.

----- Ryan 18.12.12 13:24

The silliest thing in my kitchen is either my ninja bread men cookie cutters or the full size chicken holding a small chalkboard. Also have a chicken whose tail is made of measuring spoons. My MIL has a great sense of humor when it comes to giving me Christmas gifts!

----- Nancy 18.12.12 13:23

my husband’s experimental dishes

----- y 18.12.12 13:23

The silliest thing in my kitchen is a apron that looks like i’m wearing a bikini that i use when i’m coooking or grilling.

----- cory 18.12.12 13:23

Crustache for everybody!!! =)

----- Alessandra White Riot 18.12.12 13:22

The silliest thing in my kitchen is a pepper mill filled with coriander seeds. CAN YOU BELIEVE WHAT A WILD MAN I AM?!? Coriander seeds in a pepper mill?!?

----- Tony 18.12.12 13:21

a concrete mushroom.

----- Seth B 18.12.12 13:20

Silliest thing in my kitchen is me. I really have no business being there.

----- Daimian 18.12.12 13:18

I have a Boobie Collection

Ginger dead man and ninja cookie cutters! I have tons of weird and silly things in there.

----- Chrissy Smith 18.12.12 13:18

We have a chain of Turkey Wishbones tied from one cabinet to another!

----- landon 18.12.12 13:16

I have a spoon rest that i bought while in germany….. he’s a gondolier, the spoon rest is his boat…… his oar the spoon.

----- mindy D 18.12.12 13:09

2 toasters - to eliminate contamination for my gluten sensitive mrs.

----- derek 18.12.12 13:09

An awesome gorilla shaped vegetable peeler.

----- Manny 18.12.12 13:04

Vases made from empty yogurt containers.

----- Iris 18.12.12 12:56

I guess I would have to say a monkey peeler, or the slap chop, that thing is pretty ridiculous.

----- Brent Keane 18.12.12 12:55

A bundle of kitchen twine wrapped around a cardboard pig.

----- Julie 18.12.12 12:55

I don’t know if this counts, but my pet hedgehog likes to hang out with me in the kitchen while I’m cooking. He loves food just as much as I do!

----- Allison 18.12.12 12:54

Apparently I don’t have enough silly stuff in my kitchen to think of anything past my Fallout 3 metal lunch box.

----- Brian B 18.12.12 12:40

My daughter’s little 1 egg sized frypan and egg flipper. Both with a big plastic egg face on the handle. Did I mention my daughter is over 29! She loves her eggs!

----- Tim Driscoll 18.12.12 12:37

It’s not utensils, but I made Turkey Sushi after Thanksgiving. tried and failed with mashed potatoes instead of rice… so rice, turkey, relish, greenbeans, sweet potato. It was a break from the turkey soup and mush bowl I was used to.

----- Matt Peckham 18.12.12 12:36

I’d have to say my rice cooker. Silly only in its very Japanese sensibilities.

----- Jake Jones 18.12.12 12:36

My last roommate left what is essentially a human-sized cat toy he made out of yarn hanging in the kitchen. While you’re waiting for something to finish cooking, or water to boil, or just talking to a friend, you can just absent-mindedly bat at it. I took it down when he moved out, but I realized how much I missed it and put it back up a week later.

----- Jeremy 18.12.12 12:34

The silliest thing I have is this old TIVO (the mascot character) cookie cutter. You wouldn’t even think that they would have created a thing like that, but it exists… and creates gigantic cookies!

----- Mel 18.12.12 12:33

I have a kitchen wall painted with blackboard paint with a gaudy gold frame hanging on it. I draw lousy chalk masterpieces in it.

----- Ken 18.12.12 12:26

My Alessi Cocodandy egg basket!

----- monica 18.12.12 12:20

Headlamp! Makes searching into deep cabinets much more efficient.

----- Misch 18.12.12 12:05

A spongebob sandwich maker! :D

----- Diana 18.12.12 12:00

The silliest thing in my kitchen is one of the refrigerator magnets which is a piece of toast with jam, making a =| face. I call it “neutral toast”.

I’m probably more proud of the menu holder I have stuck to the side of my fridge, though - I made it using a pair of repurposed magnets and an old NES cartridge sleeve.

----- Michael 18.12.12 11:58

Official chopsticks from the contemporary cult classic Serenity.

----- Erin P. 18.12.12 11:58

sadly I have none :(
hopefully I win this and start my silliest thing in my kitchen ‘journey/collection’ :)

The little ceramic bird that’s supposed to be for pies but never goes inside them.

----- Susanna 18.12.12 11:51

A toothpick holder/voodoo man from Fred (of course). I got it to vent my frustration while cheating on one boyfriend with another. I think the chants I used to do with the toothpicks helped me get that cheater thing out of my system.

(Kidding about the chants. Did get the sowing of oats out of my system though)

My lovely un-cheated-on live-in boyfriend just likes toothpicks being handy.

----- Erin 18.12.12 11:45

An Alessi mandarin juicer

----- Robert W. 18.12.12 11:43

The silliest thing in my kitchen is an oil lamp shaped like a hippopotamus. :)

----- Grace 18.12.12 11:43

There’s a shrunken head in my kitchen. The landlord says the previous tenant left it there, neither of us dare remove it.

----- Daniel 18.12.12 11:40

The silliest thing? My apron with the statue of David printed on the front.

I think you get the idea. lol

----- john g 18.12.12 11:37

----- Sheila 18.12.12 11:12

The silliest thing in my kitchen is the ceramic container that holds all my spatulas/wood spoons/ladles/etc. It’s made to look like a paint can with dripping yellow paint at the top.

----- Natalie 18.12.12 11:10

My wife. seriously, she is awesome and silly, and i can’t cook.
