How many ways do I love this face-mounted hummingbird feeder? It looks like an off-brand Iron Man costume! It lets hummingbirds drink from the bridge of your nose! It’s called :–2<:, which is pronounced “Eye to Eye” but is really a pictogram of a long-nosed human and a beaky bird facing off! This video about its origin uses every terrible typeface known to man!

The feeder costs $80 and promises to “take your relationship with your hummingbirds to a whole new level.” The level where they eat out of a hole in your face.
