15 chancers that want you to fund their personal projects

Cowboys. The lot of them.

REMEMBER WHEN THAT guy raised $51,850 to make a potato salad on Kickstarter?

Unfortunately that wasn’t a once-off. Stupid projects are now springing up left, right and centre, and these chancers are looking for your money to fund them.

Here are some cheeky pups looking for your hard-earned cash.

1. The guy who has set up a ‘dickstarter’

This guy is looking for $100 to draw a penis. “I just graduated college and I have no job. Let’s bring it back to the goals of my youth. I want to make the world’s biggest dick drawing.”

2. The guy who wants to make pancakes

This guy needs £60 become the Scouse Banksy. “So, I basically need money to pay for spray paint because I 1) can’t afford it… 2) wouldn’t want to fully bear the financial cost of art that I believe will benefit many in the city of Liverpool.” Noble.

4. The guy leading a one-man egg sandwich crusade

This guy needs $310 to print instructional leaflets on how to make a nice egg sandwich, which he will personally deliver to all establishments that sell egg sandwiches. “There’s not ONE right way to do this, but my guidelines will at least make an average egg sandwich much better.” Again: noble.

5. The groom who wants to feed his Ma’s friends at his wedding

6. The guy who wants to make a beer tie


Fellas: ever at a party and wish you could put your bottle of beer in your tie and free up those tired, tired hands? You may be in luck, but not before this guy raises $7,800.  “Both functional and stylish, the Beer Tie is here to hold your beer and ‘DRESS UP YOUR DRINKIN’!'”

7. The guy who wants to build a sandcastle

This lady wanted to build an Instagram for hunters called Huntagram. “I got the idea from my husband who at deer season can’t wait to get on Facebook to show everyone what he killed…He said its time for hunters to have there own app with no gossip.” NO GOSSIP.

9. The people that want to manufacture a smart toilet roll holder

These two want $37,500 for a “smart” toilet paper holder that beams an LED light when the toilet paper is gone. You know, in case you can’t see the empty toilet roll right in front of you. “Yes, you can visually inspect the roll before using the toilet. But are we all always that vigilant?” Compelling argument! (If they raise $55,000, they’ll create an app. Eyeroll.)

10. The guy who wants to build a sexy phone charger
