A Long Island woman is suing the Queens-based company Ruin Days for an alleged assault after she received a “spring-loaded d–k bomb” that unexpectantly and shockingly “exploded in her face” sending penis-shaped confetti everywhere.
The company will anonymously offend anyone including an employer, ex-lover, friend, family member, co-worker, neighbor, or even a stranger for a price. Their business is pranking people.
“We at RuinDays.com are the leaders in humorous pranks delivered by mail! We discreetly and 100% anonymously package the most annoying things possible to receive through mail, and ship them to your worst enemies, in an effort to ruin their day. Just give us their name and address. We’ll take care of the rest,” their website boasts.
Ruin Days has plenty of offensive pranks to choose from including, spring-loaded d–k bombs for $22.99, smelly poop in a box for $20.99, Gummy bear-style bag of d-–ks for $14.99, “I’m a piece of s–t” t-shirts for $27.99, and the ever-popular spring-loaded glitter bomb for $23.99.

One woman did not see the humor in the “spring-loaded d–k bomb” which “exploded in her face,” according to court papers. She’s suing over the unsolicited FedEx package she received at her Nassau County home on May 29.
The device is “a spring-loaded, tube-shaped package which abruptly and unexpectedly shoots out hundreds of penis-shaped plastic-like confetti with high velocity and great force.” According to the suit, the package was “designed to disguise the true nature of its contents.” The sender was labeled as “Nostalgic Inc.”
The woman claims she was “shocked and scared by the explosion of projectiles.” She is seeking unspecified damages for alleged assault, battery, negligence, and emotional distress.
She’s not alone. A woman in Southern California is taking the company to court as well after being the recipient of a graphic “How to Not Be A ‘C–t” book sent last May and an “Eat A D–k” card mailed to her last August at her place of employment in Irvine.
“My client feels like anyone else would feel. Scared. Shocked. Violated. Certainly disturbed and certainly distressed,” attorney David Barry told the New York Post concerning the defendant. He said R&D Promos, “walks the line between what is completely inappropriate and decent and what may potentially be civilly and criminally actionable.”
Evidently, R&D Promos, which runs the website RuinDays.com, has not responded to a complaint filed in December and Barry is seeking a default judgment. Lawsuits are stacking up for the company. They have also been sued by defendants in Kentucky, New Jersey, Maryland, and Ohio.
In a Maryland case, a woman sued the company for more than $600,000 after opening a package she thought was from Amazon. Instead, it was an R&D glitter bomb that exploded in her face in June of 2018. She claims that the explosion not only caused her personal harm but damaged her computer as well.
RuinDays.com displays a warning disclaimer on their site: “Our service is meant to be used to deliver a ‘gag’ gift. It is not to be used to harass or harm anyone in any way. If there is any doubt, do not use our service.” It also states that buyers “may not use our products” for any “illegal or unauthorized” purpose. It is questionable whether that admonition will hold up in court considering the nature of the prank gifts.
Twitter had a sense of humor over the whole thing:
They’re really getting the shaft.
