Charlie Chaplin fans, Pastafarians, and home chefs wanting to wear their love of cooking on their sleeves and on their heads will appreciate this silly colander shaped like a bowler hat, sold by English online novelty store The Fowndry (and spotted by Laughing Squid). The flexible polypropylene kitchen tool costs £10 (around $12 US), and can be used for washing fruits and veggies, straining noodles, or as an impromptu accessory if you feel like emulating Chaplin’s famous “dinner roll dance” from silent comedy The Gold Rush (1925) in the middle of meal prep. (Just remember to rinse it off first.)
