Remember last week, when we told you about the guy who "invented" the social distancing stick?  Yeah.  It's an extendable 6-foot long stick. 

Someone gets too close...

"Woah there, buddy.  Hang on a sec."

(pulls out stick)

(extends it for an awkward amount of time)

"Yup.  Just as I suspected.  You're gonna have to step 'er back three inches."

Dude's gonna get rich off them, though.  Just like this guy who invented this "Here Comes the Sun" picinic blanket.  It's basically a hollow ring of fabric, with four circles of fabric around it.  Well, here...

Dumb.

"Hey!  That's MY circle!  Go sit in your own!"

I can see this being big in parts of Brooklyn, though, for sure.  Especially considering you can make your own for free with this template.

You'll just need to have a sewing machine, scissors, and measuring tape, and about nine square meters of fabric.  Is Jo-Ann Fabrics even open?

Sigh.

Here's an article with more pictures, and an explanation for.....why.

Dude's gonna get rich.
