Go With The Flow

Naomi Matsushima, a Japanese comedienne, wanted that time of the month to be more fun. So she invented Whisper pads: brightly colored, patterned pads featuring stars or camouflage print. Silly? Maybe. But Proctor & Gamble liked Matsushima's ideas enough to put the pretty pads into production. While you can only get 'em in Japan right now, don't you think cheering up Aunt Flo is really an admirable task, period? [Inventor Spot]
