But WAIT, CALL NOW!

Have you noticed that MOST infomercials tell you a price but the scream out BUT WAIT call now and get this or that or we'll double your offer. lol

So most nights I have to get up in the wee hours to nurse baby boy. In order to stay awake, I go to the family room, turn the TV on and let him nurse. I thought that during the day they showed a lot of infomercials, but at night it's 10 times worse. There are some weird items out there for sale. I'm sure you've seem some of them, Space Bags, Pillow Pets, Butterfly Garden and so forth. Ok, so during the day you see the house stuff infomercials and then a LOT of kid stuff that is purely junk. The other night I saw one that totally floored me. It is for an item called Booty Pop. Have you seen it? It's like this padded underwear looking thing to shape your booty. Seriously? It does not look comfortable at all. Check it out here.

What is the weirdest infomercial you've seen?

Oh LORD! I wanna make my butt SMALLER! Not bigger!!! I've seen this infomercial for, well, basically a cup that you bounce ping pong balls into. You get the cup and 2 ping pong balls. For $14.99!!!!!! WTF?? Why not buy a four pack of balls for like $1 and use your own cup?

Hi - coming over to say thanks for following my blog!

As for infomercials -- I guess some people gotta make a living somehow! I don't have a weird one, but I did fall for one once. A set of 4 or 5 sponge paint helpers to get in those hard to reach places... did I ever use them -- NO!!

Oh my. I once bought that helicopter toy thing that you release and it's supposed to fly on its own. It did NOT work.

Although I did buy the Ped Egg for my feet and that actually does work

My sister was telling me about this the other day! Really funny! I would actually try wearing a pair, I could use some junk in the trunk! haha

lol, ridiculous. I've seen ads for those in magazines before too, some add padding to your butt and others to you hips!

I've always thought the perfect pancake commercial was ridiculous. They show these people fumbling around like idiots and then provide a solution for these fools, but I'm not that dumb, so who are they marketing this to?

mmm I won't be getting a pair of those anytime soon....I want something to reduce not make bigger :)
