Relive the glories of adolescence with this absolutely horrific zit-popping toy

Do you miss the daily ritual of painstakingly cleaning out your clogged pores in the bathroom mirror? Are you one of those unfortunate souls that has never suffered from adult acne? Do you wish you could reenact the most disgusting teenage hygiene ritual in a safe and pain-free environment? Well, wish no longer! Introducing: The Pop It Pal, an incredibly gross new toy that exists because the world is an awful place filled with awful things.

Made from skin-safe silicone, the Pop It Pal contains 15 refillable “pores” packed with artificial pus, and is the perfect gift for anyone who derives satisfaction from squeezing pimples until they burst but is tired of the lasting skin damage this habit can cause. According to the Pop It Pal website, the toy’s creator, Bill Pierce, came up with the idea while driving around town with his wife who suddenly pondered, “How awesome would it be if we could make a pimple that felt real and the pop was huge, just like those videos we watch?” Instead of vomiting all over himself and driving his car right off a cliff, Pierce took his wife’s idea ran with it.


Thus the Pop It Pal was born. Now, for the low price of $19.99, you can relive the joy of popping huge pimples with massive pus discharges without having to also contend with raging hormones and unwanted facial scars. It’s available in two vaguely human skin colors (peach and brown) and additional pus refills will cost you $5.99, because you’re not a teenager anymore and that means pus is finite.
