15 Weird Products Companies Put Their Brands On

The first rule of capitalism is, "nothing is ever enough." Corporations always want more -- if they own the cart, they also want the horse, and if they have cake, they want to eat it too. Now, some broadening attempts kind of make sense within the market game -- if you sell soap, your know-how can be transferred to shampoo; and if your product is cars, you can easily branch out to buying out environmental authorities. Those all complement each other.

These, on the other hand, don’t make a lick of sense. Not even on paper can you see what convinced the top bras to go along with these left-field ideas. They weren’t just thinking out of the box -- they set the box on fire and scattered the ashes to the wind. Come on, try and figure out the thought process behind these:
