Got my IRK today as well, it’s almost like they knew what I wanted! I’m moving to a new house next month with more doors and windows and was just wondering if I should upgrade my current Simplisafe system, but now I’m all set! Thanks Meh!
Iphone 6 case
HP USB 3.0 cable
SimpleSafe system (looks to be new with all parts)
Woohoo… My IRK’S have been delivered… Yes Multiple. I was fortunate to have one via the twitch stream!
First the boxes:
Yep… kinda can guess one of these from the box. mbut will save that for 2nd. First the unmarked box which was lucky to win contained:
1 King size bamboo sheet set! Shockingly we have a king bed, hope we like the feel.
1 pair of Euro Tennis socks mens size 8 - to small for me but maybe GF or can find someone happy to have them.
1 Camping Spork Carabiner thing - um… yeah… new at least.
1 Meh insulate cup - small size but can certainly use.
1 Frozen Gift bag
Pretty good haul right there:
Now the 2nd one from about 8 am sale:
Deebot Slim Neo low profile Ecovac - WOOHOO! Charging to confirm full functionality. Will join the pair of roomba 650’s we run
Wireless AirBuds - Been wanting to try them but had not pulled trigger Charging then will wipe down and try em out.
2 port usb charger - always handy,
3000 mah charger with integrated usb C and Lightning… but no USB charging cord and I don’t have that yet. One day will be useful I assume
Great Haul, hope the birthday was amazing for everyone and best of luck to all to not get a box full of printer cords!
@chaos13@raccoon81 What is this Twitch thing you speak of? Does it help getting an IRK? I gave up trying. Found it entirely too aggravating to click the second it changed over every time and still being too late. So I went shopping in a brick and mortar instead.
@Felton10 I think the girl ran off with the cat…if you find her, tell her I miss her. But I’m pretty happy with my IRK! Let’s see how much additional I have to claim on my personal income taxes this year shall we?
Lovesac 5-Series You-Table - $49.00
@cengland0 Quite possibly. My daughters were racing to claim the batman socks (with cape).
Current first world problem: I have two matched 24" monitors on a mount, but neither is 144hz. Do I replace one?
My teenage son called me at work to let me know my IRK had arrived so I asked him to open it. We were like two kids on Christmas and I honestly don’t know who was more excited. Thank you Meh for bringing us Christmas in July. My son begged me for the wireless earbuds, he said they were smiling at him and he wanted and really needed them so bad…so I told him I would be willing to make a deal and sell them to him for a super low price of only $5.00…BEST DAY EVER!!!
-SOLD PAIR of Wireless Truebuds
-Xtreme Pro HD Edition Sports Cam with 20 mounts and accessories

-7 foot USB high speed cable
-LED Symphony, a wireless bluetooth speaker inside a LED light with remote (My personal favorite)
-Orange IRK tote
Here it is one day early or two days late depending upon how you look at it. Anyway, I am tickled purple. I love this Chromebook (CB35 - B3340). It is full HD 1080p and has Scullcandy speakers. Hey, do I sound like a techie?
Yeah, it’s getting a little long in tooth (kinda like I am), but when they made it, it was one of the bestest of the best. I charged the battery, started it up, and updated the Chrome OS. Works like a charm. And that screen – the color pops! The speakers? Oh, wow!
Thank you Meh, I don’t know what else to say. Oh yes, I do. This is the second Chromebook that you have sent me. The first one was in the Kickstarter Fuku, 5 years ago. So… I think you will owe me another one in 5 more years? Wouldn’t want to break my string of getting Chromebooks, would you?
@Barney@therealjrn vintage comics. Collected them for years and years. That one isn’t particularly valuable, but why would Meh have a 40 year old comic sitting around. And yes, boobs are pretty special.
@JnKL Meh sold comic books in at least a couple of different sales. I have no use for this comic book. If you would like it, whisper me an address and I will send it to you. I promise not to stalk you… well, not too much.
One IRK shopping bag
One panasonic chromebook full of some dude’s personal information
One make up brush set
One bull car charger with lightning cable
One light up yew halloween bag
One Tudia magnetic phone car mount
• Tend Lynx 1 indoor security camera - I reset it and it seems to work correctly! Might be able to use it on my covered porch.
• Infinity Gold Pro Series 2 in One Blower Brush - open box, but seems to be new…at least there isn’t any hair in the brush
• 3X 20 pack of Date Rape Drug Detector strips
• Pink iPhone 6 case - can’t use because my iP6 currently has a meh popping socket on it.
• Orange IRK bag
@bluebeatpete Just an FYI you can remove a PopSocket and then just run it under water to reinvigorate the sticky bit. I’ve taken off and reattached my Meh socket several times already and it’s still holding strong when I want it to.
• 1 discontinued, but still passible A/V receiver !!
• 2 discontinued and obsolete USB-A to USB-B cables !
• 3 packs of 20 unused ‘Drink Guard’ brand DATE RAPE DRUG DETECTOR cards which I think I’m supposed to use to make sure I’m not getting “fake” GHB or Ketamine
• 1 orange IRK bag to carry it all home in
Not regretting this too much.
Wireless charging base some one put a sticker on that said bad, appears to be missing a cable
Charging wallet in pink
Charging cable, won’t work with my iPhone, possibly my camera
And a hard sided suitcase, in my favorite color (I’m happiest about this and it will get great use!)
Not a bad haul. The weirdness is with the bizzarro eye shadow, the meh is with the curling iron thingy (since I have a buzz cut), the ooooh is the torch bluetooth speakers (would it be meh if there weren’t bluetooth) and the no way is the dash cam, which I have contemplated getting. So an IRK for the super-fecta!
There are just too many posts here to see if anyone else’s matched mine but somehow I doubt it. I got the notification of delivery yesterday and got home expecting a nice average sized box, especially since we can’t see the dimensions anymore. I was a bit surprised at the huge box sitting there. Even more so when I went to move it a bit and found it was pretty heavy. Maybe it was a goat special delivery.
Took it inside, opened it up to find the following:
One crappy set of Chinese earrings that at least someone else can use. Going to price that at $1.
One crappy elephant stamped cuff bracelet that once again someone else can use. Again, $1.
One Track n Guard dog collar. I guess I could use this, but I’d have to find the right person to use it with. Second option is to give it to someone with a dog. Sold on Morningsave for ? but generally retails for about $12.
It got a little more interesting with a Nixon Kingpin watch. Black with rose gold hands. Again, sold on Morningsave for ?. The only one online I can currently find being sold is on Amazon for $250. Which means it’s probably worth about $70. It’s actually pretty nice and I’d wear it if I find the need to wear an analog watch. As it is, my Apple Watch gets worn daily.
Finally, I really didn’t expect the box to match the contents. But, there it was, an LG OM7560 1000W RMS Hi-Fi Entertainment and Karaoke System. Last sold here for $174 but still available online for as much as $469. The bottom rear of the cabinet is a bit banged up like it was dropped pretty hard. But, I plugged it in and it started right up. My phone connected via bluetooth with no problem. I started up some Rush and turned the volume and OMG, this thing cranks out some sound. I’m yet to find out if absolutely everything on it works but for now, it’s the biggest, loudest bluetooth speaker I own. There’s a neighbor two houses away with what I assume are teenagers that like to have the occasional loud parties late into the night. I’m thinking the next time I have to listen to their shitty music I’m going to haul this outside and crank up some counter-tunes like Rachmaninoff.
Thanks guys, but where’s my IRK bag? I’M MISSING MY IRK BAG!
@cinoclav The dog collar is selling for $19 on morningsave. Which I’m kind of surprised about since it $12 at walmart. Kinda cool though. It will allow you to monitor @tinamarie1974 (if you purchase the base) when she wanders away from the dungeon.
@mfladd@tinamarie1974 Looking at it again, I think the one at Walmart is the 1X. The 2X seems to sell for about $25 elsewhere. Great, now @tinamarie1974 can track me via crowd-sourcing if I try to escape.
IRK arrived, and the main surprise was spoiled before I even brought it in the house… a Boneco humidifer!!!
But wait, there was more… Inside the box I also found both an orange IRK bag, and a pack of red light up glow sticks.
The humidifier looks returned, but has all its parts and seems unopened inside; haven’t had a chance to plug it in yet to see if it’s working, but if it is, major score then!!! I live in an area where the only time I consider the humidity is “Jesus H Christo, it’s hot as balls and humid out there”, But with this fancy new device my nostrils will never again know the feeling of lack of moisture. Thanks Meh, my regret was certainly instant!!
1 orange IRK bag
1 Riviera self balancing scooter (white) - box was opened, but i think that was just to put the IRK bag inside. seems to be new otherwise. charging and will test out tomorrow. please have medics on standby.
and the best thing ever - 1 white paint pen!!!11one!!!
@lseeber except, the fuckers at meh are very smart and evil. sure, they sent me a white paint pen. but, they also made sure the scooter was also white, rendering the pen completely ineffective. bastards!
@hunter7411 what’s that stick thing - a paint dauber? You could dab “Meh.” all over that spinner bag, so everyone could revel in its glorious meh-ness! Or not. (It’s probably a lame-o cooling towel, or something.)
1x Ella Jayne Full/Queen Comforter
1x Disney Princess gift bag
1x IRK bag
2x Glow Sticks that came with 2 post-it note stickers attached to one of them. They have written on them 111753 B01 and the other one says 111751 B01. Is mediocrebot trying to send me coded messages? Anyone know what these numbers mean?
The Regret is strong in this one. Seems I struck out on this bag. Surprised so many others got a lot better stuff in theirs.
@Rueki You did strike out, but it is important to see these bags as to temper expectations accordingly. We all did purchase a bag of instant regret. I like to imagine most regret is so strong they don’t even post, and we see a disproportionate amount of the better ones.
@KNmeh7 Indeed. I’ve gotten a few bags from meh since I joined during its inception. Some were decent, some were not, but never were they extraordinary. I like to try and post my bags when I can to show a better picture of the bags meh delivers.
@Rueki last years fuku birthday meh my husband scored consisted of a broken True Blood Bar Mirror and that was it. Needless to say, this year his expectations are low and his regret is extremely high while waiting for the delivery of his IRK.
My IRK arrived!
-Massaging chair that is missing the power cord and it is some weird proprietary looking thing, so I guess maybe splice it on to something I have and hopefully not burn the place down.
-White noise speaker that uses usb to power (hallelujah!) The ocean one makes me want to take a piss.
-A plastic handle that would be perfect for a box containing a massager, yet it was completely separate and packaged in box. Score!
-An Edgewood unisex posture corrector and back brace.
-A Manorola breathable double-compression shaping belt. I suppose this is a knock-off spanx. Between this, and posture thing that looks like a bra, and my non-functional massage chair back, I am going to be looking and living my best. Thanks, meh!
-A Que Design 6000mAh power bank.
I would like to think the theme is meh was telling me I spend too much time in a chair and need to fix myself. Many regrets.
Orange IRK Bag
Vibrating back massager with heat. (My wife is convinced this is a vibrator but who knows)
Some power eyebrow thing
A USB-C hub which I will use for my Pixelbook
GenTek wireless earbuds
Everything appears new and unused so I’m pretty pumped for this one!
1 pair of Kate Spade aviator style sunglasses with case
2 sets of clip on phone camera lenses
I set of “One size fits most” women’s leggings
flowered passport/credit card wallet that says: “Love”
1 Lamzac blow up chair/kayak looking thing for the beach…I live in the mountains of Colorado…
Actually a bit surprised by the haul this time, thanks Meh!
60 - Date Rape Drug Detectors that look unused. Poor girl that dropped those in my box
1 - container of date rape drugs…erh I mean sleep helper? IDK, says it helps you sleep a bit deeper, I’m probably going to test it before taking it cause ya know, you gotta try everything once!
1 - Air fryer that looks kinda unused but in ugly ass purple that someone probably returned after buying while on drugs.
2 - $20 gift cards to pacificpearls.com - Everything there is $48 plus though
1 - Pearl necklace that is falling apart.
1 - Printer cable actually like having a spare around because no one ever does.
1 - Meh Mug.
1 - Mini hair iron thingy.
1 - Orange grocery bag.
1 - wristband to some sort of device you need a wristband for but don’t have because I have the wristband.
@ShotgunX lol I’m one scoop into it hoping it helps. Just got a puppy this past weekend and sleep has been a bit neglected. Forgot to mention it also expired in February in case anyone out there didn’t see that prior to taking it…doubt it matters though.
@ShotgunX Thanks, I actually googled that because I have seen it mentioned in other forums for stuff but never really paid attention to it and was little bit puzzled why it was in this. I was going to wait until the weekend but decided to open it and it smelled good so just downed some. I’m ready for the ride!!! Work in the morning so no other chemicals in the system today! Amazon reviews for the pill version have me a bit worried that I might not sleep though. Ah well, it’ll probably just be snake oil with a jacked up kick.
Received my first ever IRK yesterday. It’s… acceptable. Received Tulip hair curler (which I’d be terrified to use), a nice detangler brush, which I WILL use, and a decent pair of shades which I’ve already used! The other two items, wireless airbuds and an activity tracker, will be gifted to someone that will actually use them. Plus the neon orange IRK bag. Not bad for my first go-round.
Berkeley Breathed is posting new stuff regularly, and there are even April 1st Calvin County cartoons for the past several years. It’s either a collaboration with Watterson, or he’s got Bill chained up in his cellar.
I got an email telling me that my IRK was delivered. I checked the door, and it was!
One Open/Damaged SimpliSafe kit
One Bag my daughter likes claiming $148 retail price
One 10 foot Micro USB cord
Seven Flower Stickers
One Sou-vide Cooker
One Bright Orange IRK Bag.
Are those bags able to be used for groceries? I have a feeling they’re the sort that rip the first time you try to pack ten cans of beans into them.
Aldi is FINALLY coming to our area. One store in Montgomery, one in Prattville, one in Wetumpka…whoohoo! Only one open so far is in Prattville but MGM store due to open early Aug.
@LexPendragon I use mine for groceries all the time, but I generally put the loaded bag in a shove-everything-you-own-in-here cart. (When you’re old as dirt, you can afford to have no pride.) And I think I’ve noticed that cashiers who load the bags tend to give me a wide berth because they don’t want to know anything else about me.
Got my IRK today and am surprisingly pleased with it.
-A Cuisinart DCC-2900 Perfec Temp 12-Cup Thermal Programmable Coffeemaker. The button that holds the lid down is broken but it’s entirely functional with a piece of tape - cool!
-Those frilly ladies tennis socks that others have posted
A truly vile, disgusting, dirty MetaWatch with a dead battery and no charger. That’s going in the trash, and I’m washing my hands (again).
Drug test kits.
KeySmart Lite (red plastic, no finder)
Used, opened Jawbone Up fitness tracker. The computer beeped when I plugged it in, so either it’s charging, or I now have a Meh virus. Or both.
Orange IRK bag, with mangled printing. Very regretful. (The printing on the other side is fine.)
The Singtrix Party Bundle Premium Edition seems to be discontinued, but selling for $400-600. I have no use for a karaoke system, but that sort of price makes this the best BOC/Fuko/IRK I’ve ever received. And hey, buttons and knobs and stuff to fiddle with.
1 orange bag
I 3 in 1 blower brush which I will use to get my hair looking nice so I can use the 40 date rape drug test kits to make sure that the 1 pair euro socks are bringing all the proper people around while talking on my Ashley chloe iPhone 6 case (second time in an irk) if I fail to get my self roofied, I can go home and take the one container of Crash to help me sleep off all my regrets.
@steveswan54 I, too, got the orange bag, euro socks (already gave them away), and iphone 6 case (found a friend with a 6s, but not a 6 yet). Got a nice flattening iron that will be repurposed for nefarious use, and a super wide curling iron that I’ll give a shot some day soon on a day off. I also got a big fist bag that has a tag that says “You’re a treat!” and is covered in ice cream cones. Love the bag design, find the bag size meh.
1 orange IRK bag
3.8 quart digital air fryer
Pair of men’s running socks
Date rape drink detection
Bluetooth air bud headphones
Pack of daisy stickers
My first time to finally get a IRK after years of trying and very pleased!
@Nicolelodeon13 That’s the best one I’ve seen so far in this list. I’m a big Disney dork, so that Disney thing helps, I cook in bulk so the food saver would rock, I play poker daily, and I could use better lenses for my Galaxy S10+ to make pics even BETTER. Good for you!
Orange IRK Bag - Priceless
Laura Ashley Pink Watch - $295 on the box; $40 on Overstock

Jones New York Charging Pouch Purse - $20 Morningsave
Gift Bag - we’ll call it $1

Total Value - $281
Total Paid - $5
Instant Regret Kit refund requested due to the lack of instant regret…
After an extended round of partying in Greenwood, IN, my IRK arrived. Upon inspection, I found no instant regret - but perhaps it will set in… after all, no self-respectin’ southerner uses instant [regret]. Wait, I’m not even a southerner.
1 AOC 24" FHD 144 Hz FreeSync gaming monitor (working)
1 HP USB 2.0 A-B cable
1 package glow-sticks
1 orange IRK bag
No regerts. Worth it just for the DisplayPort cable included! Perhaps regret will set in if this monitor dies a horrible death 2 hours into using it - or something?
-Magic Washberries - box open and all this nuts rolling around… I kinda like plain ole detergent
-Date rape detection cards… being a guy, that doesn’t hit the bars, not really needed.
-TOCCs 10 foot USB cable - I have enough, and how the heck can a USB cable be 1.0 stars with 11 reviews! That’s horrible!
-Large crumbled black gift bag. How festive is black?
The more I read what people got, the more depressed I get. Not that I want any of the date rape cards, but people are getting 60 I got 10. They get multiple USB cables, I got one.
Oh, I see I left out the one pair of women’s socks that I got. yay.
@therealjrn I think the hair dryer will quiet my wife enough to let me spring for another $ 5 on the next IRK. She always says this is waste of money-of course it is-that is the fun of it. Too bad it didn’t come yesterday-might have been able to sneak the hair dryer out of the box and give it to my wife telling her it was her birthday present which was yesterday.
My first ever bag arrived today!
1x i phone 6 case
1x clay facial mask
1x frozen gift bag
1x zen logic extreme bluetooth speaker (with bonus power bank)
1x M Cushion shiatsu throw pillow (with matching regular pillow)
1x IRK bag in ORANGE
I’m both amused and pleased with my haul! Thanks meh!
Turns out that the car mount, though in a pristine sealed factory product box, was busted when I opened it with the suction cup that attaches it to surfaces broken off of the base. The other end has a nice strong magnet that I can probably do something with, however.
Having added batteries to one of the bags, the light-up panel is pretty cool.
Got mine today, so happy and mehhry!
Water bottle infuser
HP Monster USB cable for a printer
Sutra Blow Dryer (wife happy)
Thule Gauntlet 3.0 briefcase thingy? (Mine)
Amazingly wonderful orange IRK bag
THANK YOU MEH!!!
I was completely floored by my IRK. No regret, for sure. I got an orange bag and it was all shipped in a BONECO dehumidifier box that i assumed was a leftover box and thought it was funny that even the box was a leftover.
Boy, was I wrong. There was a brand new $150 dehumidifier in the box, just as was said:
Well, this is officially the weirdest selection of stuff I’ve received in one of these things.
1 orange IRK bag
1 Sunbeam Donut Maker
1 large bag of assorted seashells (some of which have been made into a sort of trivet)
1 ladies phone charging wallet
1 rubber duck
2 disposable razors
1 string of Hamburger and French Fries LED lights
1 pair of Squishy Lungs
1 Fart Whistle
1 pair of LED glow sticks
1 cardboard VR thing that is missing parts
Yours is an exception. My IRK - moving from Texas to southern Illinois - has happily been sitting in Greenwood, IN (far outside of a direct path) for the past 4 days with no movement. This is a path that normally takes only 3 days for even media mail USPS - but YAY FOR NEWGISTICS!
I’ve noticed from the BBB site that Newgistics tends to “kick them loose” when you file a claim against them, usually with something like “we’re sorry, we’ve checked into it, found your package, and it’s moving on now, due <x>”. If it makes it to one week sitting still in Greenwood, I’ll file a claim against them with the BBB.
@Jasongb@tinamarie1974 You’re lucky if they departed. Mine shows it arrived in Greenwood and has just been enjoying the scenery since Jul 12. I’m hoping to see a depature tonight or early tomorrow morning.
All five are delivering today
Ha ha, I don’t believe you got 5. Meh staff deletes duplicates in case you were lucky enough to get multiples. Only one per person. I tried it once knowing I would be breaking the rules and the second one did get cancelled.
@tinamarie1974 Okay, you got me (tricked me that is). You posted this in the IRK reveal thread and said “I have five, they departed Friday from IN” and “All five are delivering today.” What is someone supposed to think about that?
@cengland0@chuegen@cinoclav@Jasongb You might want to check again. I just now got an email saying the post office is delivering mine tomorrow. Maybe they got tired of the partying our box contents were doing in IN?
@cengland0@chuegen@cinoclav@Kidsandliz Yours is not alone! Oddly enough, my tattoo-based IRK has no shipping info when viewed via meh’s ‘Orders’. Tracking info, however, indicates it’s still hungover in Greenwood.
@cengland0@cinoclav@Jasongb@Kidsandliz Well, apparently my IRK decided to shake off the party hangover and get back to work. It seems to have found itself in St. Louis without even departing Indiana, and it’s now with the fine people at the US Postal Service, so I’m expecting it tomorrow:
Arrived at USPS Regional Destination Facility
Saint Louis, MO
Wooohoooo! Just updated that the Wentzville post office has received the packages. Will be interesting to see which of the three make it to me at what time… Hoping my 11-year-old can practice restraint, as the last ones were opened by her while I was at work.
Update: The Chromebook doesn’t hold a charge, and upon further inspection of the box, there’s a note taped on (possibly from the previous owner) saying as such. The power supply is supplying the correct power and it turns on, it just immediately turns back off when unplugged.
iFixit doesn’t stock replacement batteries and its specs look way too low to be worth fixing it anyway, so I suppose it’s off to the e-waste facility at the dump. Looks like that bumps this IRK from “nearly all” to “complete” garbage, save for the IRK bag itself.
@lljk You might already know this, Chromebook specs don’t have to be as robust as windows computers to run efficiently. I think it’s the same model I have and it runs great. A new battery is less than $50 and there are Youtube videos on how to replace it. I would say it falls in the easy category. This would also be a good laptop to run linux. I wish this had been in my IRK.
Twin size comforter (doesn’t fit my bed).
Date Rape Drug Detector x3 (I’d rather be drugged).
Ashley Cole iPhone 6s case (doesn’t fit my android).
Generic gift bag (to re-gift all this crap to someone else).
IRK bag (useful since Illinois taxes everything, including bags).
14 piece Fusion Xcelerator smoothie maker and it works perfectly!
Wireless AirBuds that charge in the little white case
Laura Ashley Marble faced watch with silver woven band
Fitness Tracker HR, ID130 Plus Color HR
Shopkins pen with flashlight at the end
Everything seems to work so far, we just have to test the Switchmate!
This was indeed an amazing haul! Thank you Meh!
@therealjrn I’ve got mine charging and had to find the software (but I did!), I’ll be interested to see what mine shows too! We’re going to Italy & Greece in September I’ll be real curious my fitness level will be there! I still can’t get over how well I scored on the IRK either! (happy dancing)
3x Date Rape Kit (The fact that these even exist is evidence of multiple failings of the human race.)
Orange IRK bag (I already have an orange one from the previous IRK.)
10’ MicroUSB Charge Cable (We’re an Apple household, but I have a few odd accessories with which this will work.)
1x Running Sock (Seems like nice quality. One can never have enough socks.)
1x USB 3.0 Cable (I literally just donated the TEN of these I had accumulated during the two previous IRKs. Make it stop, meh!)
1x Foodsaver Vacuum Sealer… I think it’s new? (This seems to be operational and includes two canisters, the marinating thing, the jar sealer, a wine sealer, and a bunch of bags. Somehow this thing falls in a Google black hole, as the models printed on the manual [FM2800], the bottom of the unit [FM2876], and the outside of the shipping box [V2840] have virtually no exact results. I stuck some marshmallows in the canister hoping I could make them all puffy by removing air… but no luck.)
Box looked promising on the porch until it almost weighed nothing when I picked it up…
1 Orange Bag
1 Glamour Brush which I believe is used for straightening hair…
1 pack of 2 LED glow sticks
2 super soft wash cloths that I believe were a set of 4 at some point
1 skinny 5x power bank which was likely the saving grace of this kit.
@therealjrn ah thank you so much. Now i can count my steps to buy the shoes to go with my new purse. Then after learning about how to use womens rose water creams I will whisk myself into 1600 count egyptian cotton sheets to earn my much needed beauty sleep
I met my mail carrier at her truck so she didn’t have to drag the box up.
Wait, an instapot? It’s completely busted up inside, right?
Nope, looks brand new. I found it on Morningsave (sold out). Look at all the buttons! I have been thinking about buying one and now I don’t have too. Unless it explodes. It won’t explode, right? I also got a nifty orange bag and tennis socks in extra big just like my feet.
Had hoped for knock off airpods… instead meh. 1 you’re such a treat gift bag, 3 sets of 20 date rape drug testers (will share with folks), 1 set of magnetic field eyelashes that i think my extra long natural eyelashes have beat in length lol; an iphone 6 case just after i upgraded, to month late Sigh - is cute though. And finally a returned but all parts there pch life digital therapy shoes - will charge and may try it. Lil concerned about anything connecting to me with wires coming returned from meh lol.
Just got mine, and it did not disappoint (it’s namesake). Usually there’s something in there that is kind of fun or neat. Occasionally even useful.
Not (really) this time! #nailedit
-Unpackaged Texas Air, damaged upon opening box
-A makeup kit (can’t use it)
-A magnetic phone mount (don’t need)
-Three gift bags (ok, maybe useful?)
-A trick or treat bag with a light up acrylic sheet
-IRK bag, in orange.
My regret came, but no regret here!
An ultra-chic orange IRK tote
Fancy hair curling thing
Rock Solid shiatsu heated pillow
Wireless charging pad
Monster Inspiration headphones (w/ case and 3 cables and extra head strap, no box)
Shaper image wireless tv headphones ( original box but appears to be opened)
Checking it all to see if it works, but so far so good! Quite a haul either way - thank you Meh!
Orange IRK bag, 24 make up kit, broken car phone mount thingy name tudu on box, and a yew light up trick or treat bag. I have had some great IRK’s, Fuko’s, and a couple of good Bags of Crap so I was due a bit of a dude. Always love collecting the bags and hope the wife can make use of the make up stuff.
-The Incredible Hulk Issue 55 comic book
-Generic cheap plastic earbuds (pink)
-Orange IRK bag
The box was the Chromebook box and had a post-it saying won’t turn on. I have it plugged in and it does actually turn on but it has a password on it. After several unsuccessful attempts, it brings up someone’s gmail address. Not sure if it will hold a charge.
Got it today. Plenty of regret.
The same hairdryer and styling brush that I got in men’s birthday box. 2 pair of fancy tennis socks. Popsicle giftbag too small for a six-pack, and an IRK bag. I do like the bag, so there’s that.
@Nate311 regretting already waiting for delivery and yep got one of those ugly(at least its purple) hair dryers still in box somewhere and oh look “such a treat” gift bag! just used one this past weekend for a birthday gift
—currently monitoring my front steps via live feed from work like a total creeper
1x Foodsaver (model V2433) with two smaller containers, one large marinating container, two rolls of normal bags, jar sealer, and various 4qt/1 gal bags.
1x PapaGo dash cam
1x iphone 6 case
1x bluetooth earbuds
1x nautical themed vanilla candle
1x orange IRK bag
1x red fukubukuro bag
Swingline laminator - (which proceeded to smoke and caught fire when I plugged it in to see if it worked). Luckily it happened on an old steel desk. Apparently there was a piece of paper stuck in the rollers, so when it heated up the paper caught fire. Too bad. I actually needed a laminator.
It’s remarkable: I had the luck to win one IRK, and earned another by getting a tattoo. Both shipped at the same time, and arrived at my post office on the same truck. The tattoo IRK was scanned in at 11:57am, and arrived today. The purchased IRK was scanned at 12:01pm, and arrives tomorrow!

@davidwr99@fuzzmanmatt I’m sorry you apparently had a bad experience David But let your post serve as warning to those who might be tempted to put their very lives and safety into a dollar store tchotchke.
@therealjrn Lol. I actually don’t like chicken (unless it’s drumsticks barbecued without bbq sauce) and alcohol isn’t ever on the premises (but obviously any beverage could be susceptible to people trying to take advantage).
@Kidsandliz I was about to make one then my mini me made off with the supplement:
One 10-piece copper pot set
1 monster USB cable
1 women’s caravelle watch
1 prosupps crash supplement
2 20 packs of date rape drug kits
1 unidentified fitness tracker band
And most importantly 1 IRK bag.
Mine and my parents IRK boxes where delivered today.
My parents got:
1 universal car magnet window mount
1 bliss & grace 24 piece make up set
1 Halloween bag
1 orange IRK bag
Mine had a little less regret:
1 green cool gear flavor infuser
1 HP monster high speed USB cable
1 Liz Claiborne phone charging wallet… Dark purpleish
1 Conair luxe spin air brush styler
1 ijoy mini projector bundle (appears to have been opened but everything inside is still wrapped)
1 orange IRK bag
@thecloudy1@bdp I got pretty much this same kit down to the green infuser, but replace the Conair with a pair of Sharper Image wireless over-ear headphones. Also the Claiborne wallet was instead a pink Gabba Goods brand wallet. The projector bundle was in similar condition to what you describe. Curious . . . did your box have #3 written on the outside (at least 3 or 4 of the six sides) in pen? Mine did. Could perhaps reveal something.
no pics b/c lazy…
(1) orange I.R.K. bag
(1) Mini Quad copter(haven’t seen those in a while)
(1) Call of Duty branded earbuds w/ external battery/phone charger(apparently from a Loot Crate set)
(1) suction base Knife Sharpener
(1) Laptop backpack. (probably the same one i thought about buying a couple weeks back bust wasn’t sure if my latest Handmedown 5000 laptop would fit…)
(2) post it’s with seemingly random digits scrawled on them…
the earbuds/battery pack set won’t work with my phone (it’s Micro USB/Headhpone Jack, I’ve got a Pixel 2. only USB-C) probably send them, and the mini quad copter to my buddies Little Bro in a care package( he was JUST stationed in Korea)
Got my kit today and found:
One wireless charging pad - seems functional
One package of fancy moisturizing cream
One three-panel make-up mirror that daughter immediately ran off with
One cheap chinese bluetooth “party speaker” with busted mode select button.
And one orange IRK bag, which is what I was looking foward to the most in this kit.
Fixed the button on the speaker easy enough, then discovered that apparently a “party” speaker is one that comes with blinking LEDs you can’t turn off, and only plays at full (and badly distorted on the crappy cone) volume. So that one went straight to the donate bin before any of the kids vould claim it
Sorry for lack of pics. Overall, a good solid meh.
@musmagic Thanks. I took a look online, but it doesn’t look like our state cuts anyone any slack on car inspections. We have to do it once a year. This car is 10 years old (with ridiculously low mileage), and the garage that did the inspection is where I’ve taken it for maintenance for the entire 10 years. This is the first time it hasn’t passed inspection and the first time it’s needed any major repairs. I wasn’t expecting it to fail the inspection, but I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised. That being said, my husband says he’s going to look under the car tomorrow and he’d better see some shiny new parts.
1x orange IRK bag
1x Meh travel coffee mug
1x sliver cross/infinity necklace
1x popsicle gift bag
1x Track N Guard Pet Home Base
1x black watch band
1x bluerazz crash
3x date rape drug tests
1x Boneco humidifier
So, got my I.R.K. which was somewhat disappointing because I got exactly two items, both BRAND FRAKKING NEW!
I mean, cool and all… who can’t use another bag, especially a bright orange one that is larger than the average such bag. Yay!(ish)
But now I have four sous vide cookers (three new in box) and three slow cookers (one new in box)… or maybe it would be better to say I now have have 3.5 sous vide cookers (2.5 NIB) and 2.5 slow cookers (0.5 NIB).
But where is the fun of getting a bunch of items (or even ONE FRAKKING item) that are(is) possibly(probably!) broken and/or used? Shit that actually has to be tested and might damage something during that testing? And the funky weird stuff that someone (who is much stranger than I am) might actually want?
It is lucky that I already have five or six huge boxes of such crap from previous BOCs, fukus and fukos or else I wouldn’t be able to participate in the next Mehxchange.
Anyways… enough ranting (I know… not a real rant… barely even a real complaint… others of you are so much better at ranting than I am.*)
So I got the bag (you can see part of it in the picture below… or in any of the other pix from people who got the same frakking bag).
Plus I got a brand spanking new, never-even-removed-from its plastic bags, Hamilton Beach Professional Sous Vide & 6 Qt Slow Cooker:
Cool! In addition to being brand new, it is Professional! (Does this mean I have to fucking pay it for slowly and/or sous vide-ley cooking food?!!)
Anyways… this was fun(ish). Thanks for letting me play.
Liz (or whomever), please let me know when the next Mehxchange is… I’ve been cleaning up my place and I’d really like to send out more boxes than I get, like maybe three or four more. (Seriously, when I drop dead, I really don’t want my daughters to have to go thru what I and my sisters did when my mother shuffled off this mortal coil.)
I note that this message has already added to the fuck count (see above), so I guess I’m done here… Please have a good one (or four) and thanks for reading.
*If any of you wish to steal my story and turn it into a genuine and respectable rant, please feel free. Copy-rantify-n-paste away. Make us all fuckking proud and help make me look better.
My box of utter disappointment arrived today. It contained:
1 Urk bag
1 Extreme Pro 4K Sports Cam with remote watch band controller (Yay, if it works)
1 tan vegan leather tote bag
1 NuDerm Natural Dermal Cell Energy Amplification System (Woo, literally. If I understand the directions correctly, it produces energized oxygen (ozone) and I’m supposed to wave it around my face…)
1 makeup organizer bag
And la piece de resistance, a completely unpackaged 42DDD woman’s bustier. My WTF moment of the bag. Well done, Meh!
Mine arrived today. House has 3 young adults. They opened it before I even got into the room. Pair of queen sheets headed straight to washer, claimed by son. Pair of wireless earbuds reminiscent of Apple design but without visible manufacturer claimed by daughter. JBW watch in rose gold claimed by other daughter. I got the IRK bag and Meh travel mug. No pictures, because I didn’t get to see any of it long enough to take one. (If there is a next time, I need to ask Post Office to hold it so I get the thrill of opening when the kids are away!)
1 x purse set (two smaller bags inside) - the main bag has a broken strap that can’t be easily repaired because it was something metal that broke. It cam with a shoulder strap, so a person could just cut all the hand straps off and use the shoulder strap.
1 x pair of bluetooth lawnspeakers. Like normal bluetooth speakers, but these you can stab in the ground!
1 x wireless earbuds
1 x vibrating hair brush - seems like it would cause tangles
1 x water infuser - spouse will use if no leaks
1 x usb printer cable
1 x orange TIRK bag
Grabbed a quick picture (or two) to avoid having to explain to coworkers. And it was raining like a freaking monsoon when I went home, so the IRK is still in my office where it’s nice and dry.
In other words, I’m figuring out what I got by looking at the pictures.
De rigueur orange IRK bag
HP Monster A to B USB cable. I have a whole drawer full of USB cables in my office, so pretty meh.
Beverly Hills Method Liquid Eyeliner With Lash Enhancer. Uh, no comment.
Instant Smart Home Starter Kit. We’ll see if it works with any of my actual stuff.
EnerPlex Jumpr Slate, which is missing a vowel and oddly designed … “Binder holes to easily place in binders, folders or planners” according to Amazon. I guess if I was in high school again I might wanna put it in a binder, maybe? No.
A bag-thing-whatever like others have gotten. I’m too lazy to scroll up.
Enchante Home something(s). Not sure if it’s one item or a set. If there’s a decently sized bath towel in there, it may actually get used, unlike most of this stuff.
Mine was sitting on the front porch when I ran out the door to head to work at 14:40.
Box was for a bidet. Not sure what is in there since I didn’t open it, but totally hope it isn’t a used bidet! Wife was kind of WTF when she saw it. Will open and post when I get a chance either later tonight after i get off at 0300 or tomorrow when I get up and have a chance to do the big reveal…
@cengland0 finally got to go home at 0400, opened the box and took a few pics then crashed… hard.
Slept til about 1030 then got up and started doing shit around the house and totally forgot about the IRK.
So, without further ado:
one BioBidet (appears complete and new- thankfully!)
one pair of socks that are too small
3 sets of date rape tests. (helping me avoid being #metoo fodder!)
one Monster USB printer cable
one orange IRK bag.
Bottom line… it lived down to it’s reputation/name. meh…
Dammit… the stupid pic is upside down and I don’t have time to fix it… how fitting!
Off brand fitness watch
Corded/Bluetooth Monster headphones with one non-functioning speaker
Slimming women’s body suit
Pink women’s watch (Ashley something or other)
Happy wife (she always complains when I get these that I’m wasting my money even though it’s (almost) always worth it!
Cheap scratched copper colored pans and pots
Well a bag and a trip to goodwill. I was kinda hoping for one of those blow dryer brushes. Anyway worth the 5 dollar gamble but value is about 10 cents to me.
@CaptAmehrican If you can tell me the size of the box: height, width, length, and the weight, I can estimate a shipping cost. I just threw in some random figures and it could cost me anywhere from $69 to $300 if it weighs 30 pounds.
Might cost too much if it’s the Rachael Ray 12-piece set that Morning save sells for $69 or the 4-piece Red Copper for $39. Have to really think twice about this if the shipping costs more than the pans.
30 pounds is probably too heavy but it was just a guess. Maybe if you can also whisper me your zip code, that would help get a closer estimate. Or, you can just tell me how much you would charge to ship to 32073, that would be great as well.
@CaptAmehrican Thanks but I better not. Due to the weight, I could probably buy a new set with free VMP shipping cheaper than paying for shipping alone for the scratched set. That’s too bad shipping costs so much. But thanks for the offer.
1 awesome orange Irk bag - ALL MINE !
2 open/returned “Perfect Brows” eyebrow groomers/shavers? - straight in the Goodwill box for those things
1 QFX wireless Bluetooth headphones - hubby grabbed those immediately “for use outside”
1 SteadyGO Electric Stabilizer for taking cellphone video - hubby also grabbed this 'cause it looks COOL!
And I get to keep:
1 Humie ultrasonic cool mist humidifier
My 2nd bag of Meh-Ness - the other was way back in 11/2014. SO much better than it could have been that I can’t bring myself to have any regrets.
Wow. What’s up with the IRK showing up so swiftly? I’m very impressed. Pics later, I have RV repairs to finish up.
For now: I received an IRK bag, a very long microUSB cable (Bungee brand I think?) a pair of all synthetic women’s socks (size: Sasquatch) and a FrenchFry 3.7qt air fryer. Appears brand new in opened box. Still has the protective film, packing cardboard and tape in place. It’s a bit larger than the last air fryer I received, which is perfect! Now I can stack the little box on top of the big box in my storage room.
I didn’t get that much this time around but very happy with what I got.
Jumpr Slate battery pack, box damaged but looks like a nice charging battery. Looks like to sold last year on Amazon for about $50. I’ll find a us for it.
VR Voyage headset. I had a $3 from Ollies that’s crap. This one is really nice, well padded, built in headphones, hold my phone in really well. Box was badly damaged but everything was intact. Amazon sells for $50, morning save sold it for $? as it’s sold out.
Monster HP usb cable - no value to me have like 100 of these.
Pure Glow Crystal Himalayan-Salt Lamp and Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser. Looks like it was used but all there. Havn’t tested it but looks like it works. I’ll use it at work. Amazon price $80, Groupon $70.
Meh oversized bag. Good for groceries since NY is banning plastic bags and taxing paper ones. They are always looking for a new source of revenue.
So 4 items and a bag. No regrets well worth the $5!
As one who received several really great fukos in the past, I must say that I truly Regret this Irksome Kit, my very first IRK!
Adventure Time “Marceline & Ice King” pint glasses
Fruit Punch Flavor “Crash” with valerian and soy
3 packs of Date Rape test kits (60 total tests)
1 pr. XL running socks
1 popsicle gift bag
1 Orange IRK bag
I don’t know these 'toon characters, but the glasses are really ugly; I’m allergic to both valerian root and to soy; I don’t know anyone who could even theoretically use these drug test kits; I could have used/gifted literally any size socks except “XL”; I guess the gift bag will get used; and I now have an IRK bag to add to my collection. Extremely Meh. Well done, very well done. I’m almost sad, lol.
@Kyser_Soze For comparison, here’s my BOC:
1-Ugly Under Armour shirt, my size!
1-Pair of shorts, my size & it’s perfect weather!
1-Chip clip that says stale chips inside
2-Bungee cords (look cheap but might work)
1-Greeting card /w envelope
1-pack of toys
It was a small box but they put a lot in it.
orange IRK bag
Michael Kors wallet
200 water balloons (they attach to a hose)
Universal GPS dash mount (filled with sand?)
2 USB cords to go with the box of 10 I received in a prior bag
And the most irksome item - set of sheets for a CA king…we have an eastern king… wondering if it’s worth opening them to see if they’ll be acceptable
@j2 Cal King will not fit a standard king mattress, it’s wider and shorter than a standard. But… save it for the Mehexchange-a-thon (not the right term, but whatever,) there are quite a few Cal-king folks on here who bitch, constantly, that Meh doesn’t carry their size of bedding - you might get a sweet deal in exchange, like maybe from someone who has 4 insta-pots or something!
1 - replacement battery for a Flitt selfie drone - $10?
All in all, not a bad haul. The headphones have okay sound, and good isolation, so they’ll probably become my new airplane earphones. I’ve been meaning to pick up a cheap qi charger for a while, so that’s perfect. And the purse means that the wife’s on board the next time I want to buy an IRK! The only thing I don’t have a use for is the drone battery.
I guess the regret you guys promised me will come in the next one…
Oh Meh you are a cruel lover. Today’s IRK featured a twist to rival “Time Enough at Last” and “The Silence”.
1 Adrienne Vittadini tote (burgundy)
1 Zoom Flux HD mobile lens pack
1 Skinclinical Reverse anti-aging light therapy kit
1 Office + Style ‘wildly popular’ 6 outlet 2 usb wall surge protector
1 orange IRK tote
And the cruelest bit of irony:
1 Essence of Bamboo pillow
But wait! This pillow feels… soft? Comfortable? This cannot be; bamboo pillows are like nerf footballs that have baked in the sun for 3 years. They’re not plush! Or are they?
Earlier this month, a round of 32 matchup by @cinoclav prompted me to talk about my rock pillows, which led @narfcake to give me the tip about washing and drying them. So I finally decided to take that step into the unknown. And so, while I was opening my IRK, I had a second project going. And here is proof:
Will they get as soft as my new IRK pillow? Or will they forever taunt me like the library full of books while my glasses lie smashed on the steps? Does “Essence of Bamboo” have only a hint of rock vs. my older “Bamboo” (no essence) pillows? More to come…
