    Anti-Bandit Bag, 1963 Inventor John H T Rinfret demonstrates his anti-bandit bag. To foil thieves the chain is pulled and the bottom of the case falls out so the contents are scattered over the floor. That'll stop those thieves from getting at the contents of your bag! No, wait. It won't.

    This Gigantic Waste of Money was invented in 1963 by the esteemed John H.T. Rinfret. The entire purpose of the carrying case was to foil the attempted theft of personal papers and belongings. The problem? When the bag was snatched from the hand of the owner, a chain releases the bottom of the bag, dumping the contents on the ground. This bag offers about as much protection for your belongings as a pair of ass-less pants offers your tush against wicker furniture.
