When you do something wrong, unintelligent, or embarrassing, your first move is probably to try and bury any and all evidence of said mistake. Yup, that Colgate . The toothpaste brand. In the '80s, they launched a beef lasagna frozen TV dinner.

When you do something wrong, unintelligent, or embarrassing, your first move is probably to try and bury any and all evidence of said mistake.

But if Dr. Samuel West has anything to do with it, there's no need. He'll unearth your hidden blunders anyway...and put them on display in his as-yet-unopened Museum of Failures.

The Helsingborg, Sweden museum, which will open June 7 and house almost 80 products that failed miserably, doesn't just reminisce about failures of corporations from Blockbuster to Nokia; it celebrates them. The way West sees it, it's important to laud imperfection.

"Every failure is uniquely spectacular," he told The Mirror, "While success is nauseatingly repetitive."

These Are the Only Vegetables You Should Buy Frozen

  These Are the Only Vegetables You Should Buy Frozen Learn the ways of the farm, also known as the frozen vegetable aisle.It turns out that frozen vegetables are often more nutritious than fresh because they’re picked at peak ripeness when nutrient levels are highest, usually partly cooked, and frozen before they can degrade. When your vegetables are late-season or on the vine/bush/root for a bit too long, the vitamins and nutrients may take a hit. You can go call Great Aunt Ingrid and tell her that no, freezing doesn't kill all the vitamins. And yes, you will be over for a few games of gin rummy Saturday afternoon.

While nearly all the products in the museum will cause you to laugh, raise an eyebrow, or cringe, it's the edible ones that truly gave us pause...and made us wonder how a team of marketing professionals could have possibly ever let these ideas see the light of day.

Take, for instance, "Colgate Beef Lasagne." Yup, that Colgate. The toothpaste brand. In the '80s, they launched a beef lasagna frozen TV dinner. Unfortunately for Dr. West, and for reasons we simply cannot fathom, Colgate didn't want the product featured in the Museum of Failures. West didn't let that get him down, though; he went about creating a replica of the original packaging.

Next up? Coffee-flavored Coca-Cola, or "Coca-Cola BlāK." Apparently, the 2006 product just didn't taste good. And it was extremely caffeinated.

The Reason Your Teeth Are So Crooked

  The Reason Your Teeth Are So Crooked The surprising reason that most of us have naturally crooked teeth. Perfectly straight teeth have become deeply coveted in our society. According to one report, the cosmetic dental industry made roughly $15.8 billion in 2015. Colgate estimates that the cost of braces can range from $3,000 to $7,000.While straightening your teeth is an easy, though costly fix, what exactly makes them crooked to begin with? This new SciShow video aims to answer this question.The host explains that the modern human jaw simply doesn’t have enough room to fit all of our teeth. Many attribute this to the rise of agriculture.

And poor Coca-Cola has another product on the hallowed shelves of the Museum of Failures: Coke II. It was a revamped version of their original formula, and unsurprisingly, patrons were not pleased. The recipe was changed back after only months.

"Every time you try something new, there is a huge risk of failure," concluded Dr West. "Most people don't realise that 80-90% of the time, innovations don't work. The trick is to create an organisational culture that accepts failure so that you can fail small, rather than failing big."
