Meanest bench ever stabs you if you don't pay up

Imagine, if you will, a world where something as simple as sitting down on a bench cost you money. Now, you're probably wondering how anyone could keep you from taking a load off. The answer is simple: spikes.

It's all from the twisted imagination of designer Fabian Brunsing, who's asking for half a Euro for the chance to rest. Otherwise, the bench won't retract the rather mean looking spikes that cover the seat. If something like this ever took off, sportswear companies could make a killing adding pockets to spandex shorts.

No deal, Brunsing! I'll sit on the grass.
