Infomercials

Luke has totally become a victim of infomercials. It doesn't matter what it is, he is fascinated by the commercial and wants what they are selling. He wants some of the things so bad that he will actually sell them to you. His favorite is the Snuggie. What is a Snuggie, you ask? Well, Luke will tell you "It's a blanket with sleeves!" Here's a link to the commercial he watches where the wearers of the Snuggie appear to be in some kind of cult: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xZp-GLMMJ0 He loves it and has asked for a Snuggie for Christmas. Chuck is appalled at the product in general and says it is just a robe turned backward, and he would pretty much be right.

Luke is also all about Bendaroos, and quotes that "Bendaroos don't break!"






Today, he was pulled in by an infomercial for a hair removal product called Smooth Away. He watched it with such concentration, and I was only a little concerned when the infomercial announcer stated that it was great for removing unwanted hair on bikini areas and they flashed a skinny woman's crotch dressed in a bikini.


Unfortunately, Nickalodeon fills up its advertising time with commercials like this. Thank God they say you must be 18 years old to order. Luke takes that seriously . . . for now.

Get ready...when Shawn was old enough, he saw an informercial for something he thought I would like so he wrote down the number and was going to order it for me. Luckily he listened when they said you had to be 18 or older so he went outside and asked Daddy if they could order it and surprise me with it. We talked him out of it (I think it was one of those choppers for the kitchen) and diverted him to something else. It was a little scary. I was so caught off guard!

Alexa was and is a fan of infomercials and ANYTHING they are selling. But she has now moved on to QVC. There have been several times when she has run to me frantic that "time is running out!"

Heaven help us if Luke discovers QVC!

Aren't Bendaroos just pipe cleaners

I am convinced that the Snuggie crashed my laptop last month! My wonderful husband saw that infomercial and was going on and on about how it was meant for me. (I'm always freezing.) Anyway, he really wanted me to see it so we looked it up online. And then next morning, my laptop was dead. I blame the Snuggie.
