Ad It Up: (The Snakes for Your Body Edition)

I'm not sure what it is about mail-order products that necessitate advertising them through ridiculously over-the-top demonstrations of how difficult life would be without said product. Usually they imply that living is absolutely impossible or unbearable until you have this wonderful, magical product that solves every life problem you didn't even know you had. For example, you probably didn't even realize how dangerous the daily act of taking a shower could be. Yes, you might have thought your loofah, a.k.a. the greatest bath-related invention since bar soap, was preventing you from pulling a muscle while scrubbing your back, then falling and cracking your head open on the tub. You were wrong. But don't worry, the body snake company has something that just might save your life. Judging by the following infomercial, I certainly should have died, or at least broken something, in a shower-related accident by now:



Finally a product that will let me wash that circle of dead skin in the dead center of my back! I haven't washed that in years! Plus, think of the benefit to my feet. Why get a pedicure when I could get a clown doctor's operating room shoe cover that suctions on to the floor of my tub? Then, of course, there's the benefit of not falling and breaking my neck in the shower due to back scrubbing injuries. I guess I'm sold. I do not want to die in the shower - that would be totally embarrassing.

But on to advertising of things that can kill you - like McDonalds. Literally. Check out this story.

Maybe Super Size Me was right all along. Fast food CAN kill you. So the lesson of the day really boils down to this: avoid drive-thrus and always use a body snake in the shower.

    Hey, good for Body Snake for using not-so-attractive-while-shirtless men in their commercials. I can totally relate to that, cuz I'm an average schlub, am I right?

    Geeze Louise that was so much better than ShamWow. I love how he only washes one foot. And he washes it so angrily.

    Seriously, that would be perfect for when I step in cat puke.
