Two-Time Award-Winning Rectal Thermometer!

In news that turned the rectal thermometer design industry on its head, Smartdesign won a silver medal in the Business Week Industrial Design Excellence Awards this week for their innovative, orifice-optimized Vicks Rectal Thermometer.

And if that weren't enough, Mediabistro's design blog, Unbeige, has also honored them for "Most Unintentionally Hilarious Accompanying Artwork".

Take the rest of the day off, Smartdesigners, you've earned it.

That picture is great! What, did they throw the baby through the air with the rectal thermometer lodged in his poor little but to get that ethereal, floating rectal thermometer experience? Beautiful.
