Ever notice how infomercials are so negative?  I haven’t.  Because I won’t watch any.  And if a commercial comes on, I just tune it out.  Or maybe it’s more like I black out.   Either way, the message isn’t received.  Why do hate them?  Let’s see…

  • The over-acting.
  • The exaggerations.
  • The crappy products.
  • The poor video quality.
  • The negativity.
  • The scare tactics.

The video below pretty much sums it up.

So yeah, infomercials can go straight to hell.  But I’ll cut a little slack for the Shamwow guy.  Not because I will ever get a Shamwow (never say never, right?), but since I’ve been cooking a lot lately, I can really use a Slapchop.

    I am always sucked in by those products. I have many. I love Vince Offer, but he is a hooker beater!

  • Kari:

    Did you know the Shamwow guy was arrested? He punched a hooker in the face after she bit his tongue and woundn’t let go!!!

  • Mike:

    Haha… yeah, I hate informercials, although some of them (in small doses) are somewhat funny.

  • MA:

    I almost got sucked in once, rang the number but the operators were busy….thank you lord… by the time someone rang me back I had come to my senses and told them I was no longer interested. Now I find them incredibly annoying. BIG KEV was mildly entertaining the first time…

Today's Deep Thought

  • My parents used to abandon me a lot as a child. In the morning, they'd take me to my school and then abandon me there, until school got out. Then at night, after they tucked me in bed, they'd abandon me and go to sleep in their own bedroom. Sometimes they'd let me sleep with them in their room, but if I started playing my guitar they'd take me back to my bedroom and abandon me again. Once, they abandoned me for a whole week, at my grandparents' house.
