There is an article at http://pingmag.jp/2008/01/11/chindougu/
about Chindogu. (also see:   http://www.chindogu.net/)    (01)

The creator of the category (Kenji Kawakami of the
Chindogu Society of Japan) shares his design criteria
for these objects:    (02)

Chindogu Ten Commandments    (03)

# 1 A chindogu must not actually be used
# 2 It must have some function.
# 3 It must have an anarchic element.
# 4 It must be a tool for everyday life.
# 5 It must not actually be put on the market.
# 6 It must not be only for the purpose of humor.
# 7 It must not be for black humor.
# 8 "Dirty" jokes are forbidden.
# 9 It must not be for profit.
#10 It must be usable internationally.    (04)

This strikes me as a category that could appear in an ontology.
It would be interesting to exacmine some of the criteria mentioned
to evaluate whether (or where) they belong in an ontology.
ie:  "used" "tool" "function" "anarchic"    (05)
