Now and then, as I am wandering through the photos from the last day or two, I come upon one that I see as a thumbnail and absolutely have to click on, simply so that I can figure out what the heck is going on.

In this case: What exactly is this guy holding?

Is it a speaker?

Is it a videogame component?

Is it for finding vibrations underground to locate poisonous snakes?

What is he holding?

I want you to ponder what you think he's holding for a moment. See what you think it is before you read further.

The answer is: it's a shower head called "Doosh."

That guy is Stefan Raab, and he's a German entertainer. And he invented this shower head. When Google Translate took a news story in German about what exactly is going on here and translated it for me, I got this entirely coherent explanation: "Occasion of Raab's trip to the product developer area is a barbecue was, with which many women would have liked a shower, would stay dry in the head and hair."

If that isn't crystal clear to you, watch the video. She stays dry in the head and hair! Something something barbecue! I love you, Germany!
