Most useless grill accessory ever?

I'm sure this has been brought up before, but I'd like to nominate a product for most useless grill accessory ever--and @ $19.99 damned expensive too:

Behold the $20 stainless steel hot dog grilling rack that holds, ta da, 5 hot dogs!

Oh yeah? Then why does the U. S. patent office record reflect "Captain Morgan" as the patent holder?

It wouldn't hold 5 of my home made sausages. Maybe three.

I've found that alot of Chef's catalog stuff is on the pricy side, but I did get a good deal once on a deep fat fryer from them.

The way I see it each hot dog you eat off of that contraption would cost about $4.00 more than it should--because after you used it that one time and the smoke, grease, etc discolored it and you realized how difficult it was to clean and how incredibly worthless it was, you'd throw it away.
