Joey Skaggs’ Universal Bullshit Detector Watch™


Make a social statement or political comment with humor any time anywhere with this cool, collectable gadget watch designed by artist and political satirist Joey Skaggs

It flashes, it moos, it poops… it also tells time! When asked, “What’s that sound?” Just say, “Oh, sorry, that’s my bullshit detector.”

This product is non-partisan and non-sectarian. In any language it sounds the same.




The Universal Bullshit Detector Watch™ is a working analog watch with a sound and light effect that lasts approximately eight seconds each time the upper button is pushed.

You will probably find unlimited opportunities to use the Universal Bullshit Detector Watch™. No worries, the batteries are replaceable. However, the Universal Bullshit Detector Watch™ is not waterproof, so don’t get thrown overboard before taking it off.

What people are saying:

“Thousands of years from now, when current human society and all its advancements (computers, airplanes, George Foreman Grills) are nothing but a faint memory, a wristwatch of epic proportions will still live on, flashing, pooping, and mooing.”

“For those of you with a sarcastic sense of humor, check out this watch. It is marketed as the Universal B.S. Detector Watch. That got your attention, didn’t it? It tells time just like an ordinary watch, but with the press of a button, it flashes, moos, and poops. That way when someone says something that sounds a little too exaggerated, you can have your B.S. detector go off.

“Product of the Day: This thing is awesome. Press a button on The Universal Bullshit Detector Watch and it gives out a big moo, then it creates a steaming dump, only to be topped with the loudest raspberry you ever heard. It doesn’t so much detect bullshit as call it out–with flashing lights, no less. It’s an accessory I can’t live without.”

“The Universal Bullshit Detector Watch is the invention of Joey Skaggs. He is one of my all time heroes; in a nutshell Joey is America’s most notorious socio-political satirist, media activist, culture jammer and hoaxer.” -Mark My Words

“Are you in the company of tight lipped people who cannot tell the difference between a joke and prime time news? Perhaps they need something to jolt them back into the world of toilet humor, giving their facial muscles a much needed smile after frowning for too long a time. The Universal Bulls**t Detector Watch could be just the funny tonic required…”

“Who can resist a good gag gift – you know, aside from people with no sense of humor? The Universal Bullshit Detector Watch…, from noted media satirist Joey Skaggs of the Garden Isle and the Big Apple, just might be the best out there this year… When it comes to novelty products, this one is a gas.” -Honolulu Weekly Holiday Gift Guide
