The Batman Branding Iron is a BIC-mounted, stainless steel branding iron 3D-printed in the shape of the bat symbol from Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. It is $30.60, and "intended for branding Batmannish trade-dress on your school stuff, clothes, books, furniture, etc (Note: not pets or people)."

Speaking as someone who can scarcely be trusted with a lighter, even as a grown man, we're calling this the best terrible idea (or the worst great idea) of the week.
