Strange and Weird Businesses

The world is full of strange and weird businesses, and some are really funny.

A few days ago, I posted a few tweets about a few of these businesses that people seemed to love. And then I thought why not write a blog post listing some more of these kinda businesses, and here it is.

A list of weird businesses

So let’s get weird together then!

1. Waking people up

An online tool called Snoozester generated over $1,000,000 in revenue just by calling people at a specified time and waking them up.

You just have to set a time and a reminder message. Snoozester will automatically call you exactly at the specified time and read your reminder message using text-to-speech.

And, it’s really surprising for me that despite having alarm clocks and reminder apps, people actually pay for this.

2. Video meeting with animals

SweetFarm offers a service called “Goat 2 Meeting” which charges up to $750 for a single video call with animals like goats and llamas. And, the company generates more than $30,000 per month in revenue.

Just schedule the meeting in advance and at the specified time, an animal of your choice will appear on your screen.

For me, it’s super weird.

3. Parcelling potatoes

“Potato Parcel” is an online service that sends custom printed potatoes to your family and friends. The company PotatoParcel has generated over $700,000 in revenue.

Just tell them what message or picture you want them to print and an address to ship. They will print your message on a real potato and deliver it to the address of your choice.

4. Sending sh*t to people

A company named Sh*tExpress has generated over $100,000 in revenue in 3 years by sending sh*t to the people who annoy you the most. It sends animal sh*t (of your choice) to the provided address, anonymously.

You just have to buy the required service from them, provide your enemy’s address and they will deliver it in a box without your name on it.

Not sure how this satisfies people, but people are doing it.

5. Renting a chicken

“Rent a Coop” offers a service that lets you rent chickens for up to 12 weeks at a cost of $500. They provide all the necessary pieces of equipment and resources for feeding and taking care of the chickens.

You can visit their website, book a suitable offer and you and your family can spend the next couple of weeks watching your chickens grow.

Like, who would have thought that people would go crazy for renting chickens!

6. Professional lice removal

A US company called “The Lice Place” offers various kinds of lice removal services. It charges up to $150 per head for complete removal.

You have to book the service and visit the nearest service center. As advertised, they use 100% natural methods.

It seems head lice are a serious problem out there.

There are a lot more of these weird and strange businesses out there and I will keep adding more and more to the list as soon as I discover them.
