A new website that sends glitter to your enemies is bound to appeal to parents

Glitter bombs are all the rage


If your child is a glitter fiend you’ll know just how annoying the stuff is – it gets everywhere and it doesn’t go away. Ever.

A new website called Ship Your Enemies Glitter, which refers to glitter as “the herpes of the craft world,” will appeal to anyone who has ever been the victim of a glitter massacre and wants to seek revenge. We imagine the service will also be appreciated by parents whose children love anything sparkly; especially any dads who have been in a meeting at work and discovered they have glitter on their face.

In return for $9.99AUD and an address anywhere in the world, the website promises to send so much glitter in an envelope that the recipient will be finding it everywhere for weeks. It says, “We’ll also include a note telling the person exactly why they’re receiving this terrible gift. Hint: the glitter will be mixed in with the note thus increasing maximum spillage.”
