13 Times Amazon Dash Failed So Hard It Won

I can't tell if these are the worst or the best...

Posted on

Have y'all heard of Amazon Dash? Basically, they're little buttons connected to Wi-Fi that let you order specific products with one touch.

(It still takes two days for your Prime order to come, so I feel bad for whoever is sitting on the toilet waiting for their Dash refill.)

They basically seem like magic. I want to press one just so that I can get something instantly delivered and feel like a goddess.

Let's be real: If I had a magic lamp, I'd probably use up all my wishes on instant bottles of coconut water or on-demand Q-tips.

But some of them are so stupid... if not pointless:

1. Wilson Jones 3 Ring Binders

How much homework is being done in your home that you need 3 ring binders on-demand? Let your child go outside and play Pokémon Go. Life's too short.

2. New Chapter Wholemega Fish Oil Dash Button

If you're consuming fish oil at such a rapid pace that you need an Amazon Dash button for it, you're probably healthy enough that you do things like leave your house and go to the store to buy vitamins.

3. Slim Jim

Isn't the whole point of Slim Jims that you buy them at gas stations on a whim? Why do this on purpose, systematically?

12. Play-Doh

If we, as a planet, start to order a new ball of clean dough every time a child swirls together their colors into a gross ugly mess, we're screwed. This is how Wall-E happened.
