Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes ""There is a saying, ‘everyone has a book in them’ but I have a similar theory that everyone also has an invention in them, or at the very least, an idea for an improvement to an existing product. With this in mind, I began to wonder if my theory might apply to people in the public eye.

Using Google’s Patent Search engine, I decided to investigate, and to my delight, I have discovered dozens of bizarre ‘celebrity Inventions.""
