Getting on my scale is never the highlight of my day — and rarely a moment that I giggle with glee. So when I saw the Celebrity Scale, I saw a rare opportunity for laughing at my weight (in a good way). The brainchild of Irish designers Angry Associates, the scales measures you in terms of “celebrities” so you can weigh anywhere between Gizmo to the Karate Kid to King Kong. And now I know that if it looks like I’m creeping up toward Mr. Ed, it’s time to re-think feeding time. To buy your own, go to, for $68 plus shipping. — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg
