1. Wretched Writing Utensils

Hard to believe there used to be a time when we had to use pens that didn't speak to us in the voice of a shrill, 4-foot-10 alcoholic caked in bronzer. That if you walked into a department store and said "make me smell like an obnoxious, oversexed guido," they would just mist you with Axe body spray. But thank God Jersey Shore came along, bringing with it a plethora of useful, worthwhile products that improve our lives in countless meaningful ways. Of course, the long-running show won't last forever, but you can rest assured these ridiculous tie-ins will — taking up space in America's landfills for centuries to come.
