(Newser) – Anyone who has ever opened a glittery birthday card from a well-meaning friend knows what a pain the stuff can be to clean up. Hence the appropriately named (and obscenity-littered), which will do exactly what the name implies, Gizmodo reports: For about $8 (that's $9.99 Australian dollars), they will mail the person of your choice an envelope filled with "so much glitter ... that they'll be finding that s--- everywhere for weeks," the site promises.

"We'll also include a note telling the person exactly why they're receiving this terrible gift." And to make it a little more painful, "the glitter will be mixed in with the note, thus increasing maximum spillage." But worry not: The gift-giver, i.e., you, will remain anonymous. Ready to buy? Bad news: The site reports that thanks to the world's "sick fascination with shipping people glitter," it's currently working through a huge volume of orders and has suspended purchasing for now. (Take a look at celebs who have been glitter-bombed.)
