When it comes to baby gear, the market is full of products many parents must have. Like a car seat, diapers, blankets, onesies, and wine. (For the parents, not the baby. FYI.)

Then there are products companies will market as must haves which are probably just really, really bad ideas.

Like the Fisher-Price iPad Apptivity Bouncy Seat.

This is a real thing parents are supposed to buy and use with their infants. IN-FANTS.

Bouncy seats aren't a bad idea. Not at all. They let moms and dads pee in peace and maybe, just maybe, do a load of laundry or eat a meal with both hands.

The Fisher-Price iPad Apptivity Seat is the wave of the Wall-E future. Plug them in to a screen and go on about your day! HOORAY!

The University of Oregon mascot is a duck.

But retired professor Sherwin Williams was the one forced to duck for cover over the weekend when a gaggle of students pelted both him and his car with snowballs.

Williams was on his way to the campus museum to donate several paintings to the venue when he was forced to exit his vehicle to an onslaught of frozen water.

The incident was caught on camera and you can see here just how intense the attack became:

Said Dean of Students Paul Shang in a statement:

Ladies, if ever there were a case for hovering, this is probably it.

A Georgia woman was superglued to a toilet on her trip to Home Depot. That's probably a little more than she bargained for.

Another of the store's guests coated the seat with Loctite GO2 glue just before the unidentified woman made her pit stop

Emergency workers were called to assist the woman who was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The store's managers found a brown paper bag inside the restroom with the bottle of superglue inside.

Repairs to the toilet seats? $60.

Repairs to this woman's pride?

We're not sure we can count that high.

Dayna Morales, the gay New Jersey waitress who gained Internet fame for the allegedly homophobic note she received on a receipt, is now out of a job.

This is because her viral story of being denied a tip because of her sexual orientation, which brought an outpouring of sympathy and donations, was a lie.

Morales was terminated after an internal investigation into allegations that she made up the story, Gallop Asian Bistro manager Bobby Vanderhoof said.

"The results of that investigation are inconclusive as to exactly what happened between Ms. Morales and the customers that night," her manager told CNN.

"However, both Ms. Morales and Gallop Asian Bistro have made a joint decision that Ms. Morales will no longer continue her employment at our restaurant."

Given an ultimatum to choose between a motorcycle and a spouse, what would you choose? A Virginia man is hoping Craigslist will help him decide.

Bob White is (jokingly, maybe) selling his Harley Davidson or his wife on Craigslist for the price of $5,900. He will also consider best offers or trade-ins.

Wife, Harley For Sale on Craigslist

White, who owns a motorcycle repair company, responded to his wife's request with a rundown of the 2006 XL1200L Sportster's features and hers.

"Sportster: Beautiful bike... pearl white with black and orange accent strips," the Craigslist ad reads. "Wife: Beautiful edition... white with a mean streak."

Bob White: Passive-Aggressive Hall of Fame first ballot inductee.

The husband isn't the first biker to put his Harley up for sale because of his wife, but his tongue-in-cheek ad takes the conundrum to a new level.

If you're looking for a used engagement ring that Satan herself (or at least a Pennsylvania woman) once wore, a guy is selling exactly that on Craigslist.

It can be all yours for $1,800!

For a brief period, the diamond was worn by "Satan herself," the Craigslist user writes, before describing the abject terror he was subjected to as a result.

Let's just say that the affordable rate already accounts for some of the risks the buyer assumes in taking possession of this purportedly toxic stone.

Swarms of locusts, fire, brimstone, etc. Sounds pretty bad for such a nice-looking symbol of love. Their engagement apparently didn't end well.

His full posting reads:

"For sale I have a 1.5 ct total weight engagement ring set in 14K white gold. The ring is in like new condition, only worn for a short period of time by Satan herself."

Long-married couple Frank and Eleanor Turner were together nearly 65 years before they died hours apart, neither having any idea that the other also passed.

A picture of the couple's dual obituaries made the rounds on Reddit on Monday:

According to their local newspaper, Eleanor died in Monroe, N.C. on the morning of November 29 while in hospice care. Hours later, Frank followed her.

Unaware that his wife had died, he suffered respiratory failure and passed away.

It's fitting, in a bittersweet sense, as the couple's love story is one for the ages.

Frank and Eleanor met at a car dealership way back in 1948 where Frank was shopping for a new vehicle and Eleanor was working as a secretary.

Landry Thompson, a 13-year-old dance student, was taken into custody after falling asleep in her teacher's car in a bizarre case that many feel involves racial profiling.

The teen traveled from Oklahoma to Houston along with instructor Emmanuel Hurd to spend the weekend dancing and training with some of the industry’s best.

But that dream of a visit took an ugly turn shortly after leaving the studio.

Saturday night, the exhausted group stopped off at nearby gas station.

“We were on the GPS trying to figure out where the hotel was," said Thompson of the night in question. "And we sat there and we dozed off.”

Before they knew it, the police showed up and surrounded the car.

The most popular names of 2013 have been revealed, and despite some trendy new entries, it doesn't look like traditional choices are going anywhere.

With the exception of Madison, which has been replaced by Emily, all of the 10 highest ranking girls' names are the same as they were in 2012.

There were no newcomers on the top 10 boys' list at all.

Cute Baby

Sophia continues a four-year reign as the number one girls' name, while Aiden has been kicked down to number two behind Jackson among boys.

Although they may not be in the top ten, other naming patterns emerged in the past 11 months that prove not everyone wants the common one.

Based on a BabyCenter survey, the Duck Dynasty stars and HBO's Girls influenced name trends. As did "Skyler" and "Jesse" from Breaking Bad.

Follow the jump for the 100 most popular baby names of 2013 for both boys and girls ... can you guess what they are? And would you use them?

"In him, we saw so much of ourselves."
