ItIn The Last Straw, Greg finds ripoff ads in the back of a comic book, and buys the products. He thinks about suing the people who made them, but he realizes that lawyers cost money, and he is broke.
Ads in comic book
- - The "X-ray" goggles: were meant to see through clothes, metal and objects but only gave blurry vision.
- - The hovercraft: looked like a ready made speed up hoverboard but was just a hard blueprint that Greg got stuck on step 1 which was to acquire a twin tubrine engine.
- - The "Print Your Own Money" device: believed to print real money when normal paper is inserted, but turned out to be a magic trick where you have to insert your OWN money in a secet compartment.
- - The "Throw Your Voice" ad: said that we could make what we say come out of someone else's voice, but turned to be a failure.
