Shonkys 2006

Our inaugural Shonky Awards recognised Apple's repair and warranty service, $80 magnetic laundry balls which clean no better than water, a washing machine that was so gentle on clothes it removed barely any dirt, a robot vacuum that simply moved dirt from one part of the room to another, a meat pie with almost no meat, the 'Purely Fish' frozen fish meal with only 48% fish, credit cards for the way they calculate interest, a baby dummy that fits entirely inside a baby's mouth, oxygen you drink rather than breathe, and a gin and tonic pre-mixed drink containing no gin and no tonic. The bar was set high – or should that be low? – for all future nominees for a Shonky.
