Just send in a good quality portrait photograph of yourself and the makers of Your Face Ironing Your Pants will return you one of their customised irons.

You can choose just about any well known brand of mass produced iron as a base unit. Your Face Ironing Your Pants, will scan in your photograph, convert it to a series of dots, like a halftone, which will in turn be manufactured as the pattern of steam holes on the face of the iron.

You can use it just like any normal iron, or exhibit it from time to time on a shelf, with steam visibly hissing out of the dozens of holes that now look like your face. Leave it sitting in place too long and it burns a nice portrait into your laundry.

       Hey, how about personalized ironing board grids, too?   

       I would pray to use this as a weapon against some unfortunate burglar. Who got him? Who do ya think!? [+]

       I anticipate a largish market for certain celebrity faces. And an increase in trips to the ER for genital steam burns.

       Sounds like a threat: "Hey pal, keep it up and I'm gonna iron your pants with your face!"
