UBO Light Bulbs
Looking like a cross between a prop off star trek and one of those lighters that students like so much, UBO bulbs are standard bulbs but with a spikey silicone finish.
"Why is it pointless?"
It does light things up, but then most lightbulbs do. They are also only available in screw fitting, not bayonet, so you probably don't even have a lamp that will take them!
"Why is it cool?"
It's spikey weirdness offers an alternative to lampshades.
