Squick me three times...

Introducing (literally?) the Ear Vacuum Cleaner 3. Apparently it's got "amazingly strong suction"...

Only in Japan. And only found via Engadget.
And what happened to Ear Vacuum Cleaner 1 and Ear Vacuum Cleaner 2?

The Japanese Are Odd (tm)

No-one in the country has a nose, or ever blows it. But ear-scooping is OK.

In classical times, the well-dressed Samurai carried a pair of swords, which in turn carried the "swiss army knife" equivalent - small tools slipped into pockets in the scabard. One of these was the kogai, a skewer-like device with a hair-arranging spike on one end and a tiny earwax scoop at the other.

If you have a tight topknot, you need the leverage! Cheapskate retainers used a mere chopstick.

Samurai hairstyles looked odd, but were practical. They cropped the front short to keep it out of their eyes, and tied the top into a tight bun to provide padding under their helmet.

Just the thing for modern Egyptian Mummy embalmers to get those pesky brains out with.

A part of me really wishes I'd applied for a provisional patent on one of my wackier inventions: Nasal floss.

Got one, ta. Had it for a couple of years. Pressie from Mother.

It's not much use. Doesn't shift wax & particulates are seldom a problem.
