    Chad's Crappy Corner & Another Gadget For His Theme For June.

    Chad came up with a different idea for the June theme. He polled our loyal Patreon members and had them vote of a type of store Chad where should buy all the gadgets for the month of June. That way listeners would have a better chance of finding the same item Chad reviewed at a store near them. Our Patreon members picked “Large Drug Store Chains” as the place Chad should find Cheap Gadgets for June. So at his local CVS drug store Chad found these two, which the Giz Wiz also found on Amazon:


    Cat Paw - The Friendly Yet Feisty Toy! Cat Paws are wildly fun! Creep out co-workers, amuse cat lovers and STUPEFY cats themselves with the amazing, bizarre, wonderful and super fun CAT PAW! Cat Paw is simply stated a cat's paw! With the slow pull of an activation lever the cat paw will move forward with a friendly cat sound; Push it quickly and the cat paw lunges forward with a roar! Cat paws move from friendly to feisty in no time! There are four furry styles to choose from, so find the right one for you! Each one includes 2 fun cat sounds. Go ahead we dare you! From $10 to $12.00 on Amazon.




    Chad also bought Rust-Oleum Wipe New RainBrella. Here's what Amazon says about it:

    Rust-Oleum wipe new rainbrella creates an umbrella for your windshield and other auto glass. Rainbrella is great at repelling rain, mud, dirt and other such substances on automotive and exterior residential glass. Product comes in an easy to use wipe-on treatment that creates a haze-free, crystal clear barrier over numerous glass surfaces. Durable, long lasting formula resists water and other substances allowing them to roll right off surface. Helps keeps surfaces clean and significantly improves visibility and safety in poor conditions. Size: 1.5 Oz. $6.88. Free shipping for Prime Members, but not Amazon Prime.


    Amazon link: (For laughs check out the price for two units at that link, but DON'T CLICK ON IT. One is $6.88, two is $90.08! As of 6/23/17)


    And Chad's take? Chad had no idea what the Cat Paw was for, but he bought it because 'it was too stupid not to'. Besides it was a lot of laughs to demonstrate on The Giz Wiz as you'll see in this week's video. Also in this week's video you'll see Chad's demo of the RainBrella wipes. These Chad liked, and as his demo shows, really works. But it does take a bit of time to follow the instructions carefully. Thanks to editing Chad sped it up so you can see the results in just a few minutes. Maybe you could buy both and use the Cat Paw to apply the RainBrella, so mostly, not!
