We don't "Mothball"

We've been heart--broken reading about the number of tourism businesses that have had to close or temporarily shut down due to the effects of COVID-19. Our thoughts go out to them along with our loyal customers who sadly haven't survived this shock.

Wall 3 Un useless

Creative Absurdity is celebrated at Puzzling World!

Have you ever heard of the “Shoe Umbrellla” – the tiny umbrella connected to your shoes or high heels to make them resistant to the heaviest downpour? No? How about the “Eyedrop Funnel Glasses” – designed to allow those ocularly challenged among us the ability to put eyedrops in, without removing their glasses? If this sounds too weird to be true then Puzzling World’s latest exhibition, tilted “Un-useless: the art of creating nothing” is sure to educate and amuse.
