Bucket Buddy 20

Recently, I wrote a brief article about the Bucket Buddy, a device that assists in carrying and pouring heavy buckets of water.  It seems there are actually quite a few products out there named Bucket Buddy. There are Bucket Buddy chairs, Bucket Buddy grooming caddies, Bucket Buddy ATV carrier devices, and more.    

Take this Bucket Buddy for instance:


Larry Humphrey of Emory, Texas invented this sucker.  It was created out of necessity when he needed to clear some foliage around his assisted-living facility.  The prototype was so successful that he decided to start Bucket Buddy Products and applied for a patent on the device.  Unfortunately, it does not appear that this product has come to market.

Then there’s this Bucket Buddy — and this one seems made for me:

Made of recycled materials, the Bucket Buddy uses 30% less ice than a regular beer . . . um . . . I mean water bucket.  The design makes sense.

Divots around the outside allow for greater surface area coverage for the ice that goes in the center.  It comes in a variety of colors as well.

There are more items called Bucket BuddyMany more.  But I think I’ve made my point: If you have an invention involving a bucket of any kind, it would be best to avoid naming it Bucket Buddy . . .
