With all the hype about 3D printing — remember the gun story? — let's enjoy some amusing messes, courtesy of Gizmodo.com.

The site calls these "11 Spectacular 3D Printer Failures." They include a whistle that doesn't make a noise — so what do you call that, an unwhistle? — and this failed attempt to make a Celtic skull.

Check the links, the comments are amusing. Like "The worst part about the whistle one is how expensive that printed worthless whistle is compared to it's cheap working counterpart," and "And like, the machine to even print that dumb thing costs $1500."
