Vampiric Design Patents

[tweetmeme source=”Intellogist” only_single=false]

Come closer, children. Put away your Twilight books, your Castlevania games, and your Bram Stoker’s Dracula VHS featuring Gary Oldman.

Gather round while we explore some of the most dastardly vampire design patents around. Ve vant to suck your prior art!

Halloween vampire decoration – US D332,761

Vampire ornament

It's not as scary when you can see that the vampire is actually a balloon and a coat hanger put together...

This seems like the kind of thing you’d put together at the last minute for your party, without having to leave the house.

Laceable vampire-shaped throat choker – US D533,331

Vampire choker

Looking quite fashionable!

The Abstract notes that the part of the illustration in the dashed lines is not part of the design. Sorry to disappoint those of you who thought that this necklace turned you invisible.

…and the coup de grace:

Vampire-shaped pasta – US D321,272

Vampire pasta

He'd probably be right at home in some marinara sauce. Nutritious AND delicious!

The shaped pasta is always the best tasting…they just seem to trap more sauce (preferably cheese from macaroni and cheese)!
