No matter how useless this is, I like it: a newspaper log roller, presumably for the rapid furling of the splayed, ink-smeared pages of a Sunday Times into a tight, combustible log. Do you need a gadget to roll a newspaper up and toss it in the fire? No. In fact, this device looks like it might considerably complicate the process of grabbing a sheaf of papers and squinching them up with your hands. But it just looks so elegant there next to the hearth, doesn’t it? For the curiously specific price of $33.97.
