15 Incredibly Out-Of-Place Back-To-School Sales That Are Laughable

Are these for kids?

Back to school is a special time of year for parents and students to go shopping for school supplies, clothing and, apparently, other items that have nothing to do with school whatsoever. Some items get labeled as back to school that students don't need, although their parents may want these items. And as a shopper, you can only smile and laugh when you see them.

Here are 15 back-to-school sales that probably weren't for students, but they sure are funny:
