How stupid are we?
When some huckster on TV claims we can get a second “Vegetable Slap Chopper” for just the price of shipping and handling if we order in the next five minutes, how many people grab the phone and make that call?
This commercial in on all day long on multiple channels. Is there really anyone who thinks they only have five minutes to order and get that super deal? Is there anyone who doesn’t know if you have to order it NOW, it probably is not worth ordering? Is there anyone who really needs two “Vegetable Slap Choppers?” Hasn’t everyone figured out that the ridiculous $7.95 cost of shipping and handling is not a bargain?
RT (random thought, not re-tweet) Mrs. Cranky thinks they should name that pet nail file thingy the “Pet-a-file.” I told her not to go into marketing.
How stupid are we?
Does anyone really think a pill will have you safely lose weight?
If it can grow hair, why isn’t it on the 6 o’clock news?
If your feet really look as bad as in that ad for a foot callus scrapper…wear socks…everywhere!
Do you really think those cheap sunglasses will work?
Why is a snuggly thing any better than a blanket?
Did you need a lint lizard before you saw the ad?
A new piece of exercise equipment…how many clothes hangers do you really need?
ShamWOW…it’ a shammy, they have been around forever!
Some of these products advertised late at night are actually pretty good, but you don’t have to order the good ones by phone, if they work as advertised you will be able to buy them at the store “As shown on TV.”
Enough of this, sorry for my rant, it is just that these TV commercials drive me crazy and I always wonder what idiot falls for that “Call now” stuff.Oh, and just so you know, the electric penis extender pump does not work worth a damn.
