  • Jellyfish Beer Bong

    The Jellyfish Beer Bong is one tentacle short of being the most awesome frat-accessory ever. For $10.99, you get an inflatable plastic beer bong that comes in the shape of a Jellyfish.

The company’s standard practice is that it returns part of its revenues from sales performed through CPA advertising on its site. We reported on $5 million in funding for the company late last month.
