About.com's Wacky Patents Links page.

Patently Absurd - A British site, with weird and wonderful patents from "across the pond". 

Patent o'the Week - Still more weird patents, including some which are, shall we say, X-rated. Not really "of the week", since the last update was in 2005, but fun anyway.

Totally Absurd (tm) - "a hilarious look at goofy inventions" with specially colorized illustrations. 

Incredible Inventions on the Living Web website

Want copies of any of these patents? You can download images of them in PDF format from the USPTO website or Google Patents or the European Patent Office's espacenet server (be sure to include the country code "US" before the number on espacenet, since it's an international database). 

Even if your idea isn't as novel or useful as these, you should keep its protection in mind. Brown and Michaels has helped many inventors to obtain patents, and we look forward to working with you.
