I suppose they work like Beer Goggles; some people cry after they take them off.
I know potatoes have eyes, but onions?
I just stick a wooden spoon in my mouth....
Health and safety gone mad Mr E Coli the infamous Hamburger says...
Onions need goggles now?I look forward to the introduction of hard hats for carrots and compulsory high-vis for all leguminous vegetables.@Julia - does that help, or is it just some sort of unusual hobby???
This artefact was in the middle of a display of kitchenware in a local upmarket shop. It was surrounded by lost of useless-but-essential items like a curved stainless steel plate with holes in and a handle (a "saucepan drainer" - I use the saucepan lid instead) and hundreds of marginally-different Sabatier knives, all with unique names implying a unique function. Filleting, boning, paring, slicing ... six would have covered every conceivable culinary need. So when I came to these 'onion goggles' my WTF-meter went off the scale. The fact that they look remarkably similar to my bike-specific sunglasses, complete with foam seal round the eyes, made me chuckle. Although the pink frames wouldn't look good with a Harley. Not a bloke's Harley, anyway.
It does help, strangely, though it doesn't stop it entirely - I think the wood is supposed to absorb the onion fumes before they reach your eyes.
This is like the silver teaspoon (must be silver) popped in the neck of an open bottle of champagne to stop it going flat. No reason for it to work, shouldn't work, but does.
