I Don’t Care, I Want A Shake Weight


I gotta be honest, y’all. I kind of want to try the Shake Weight. Sure, it makes your arms look like they’re giving a fairly vigorous handy, but is that really so embarrassing if you’re doing it in the privacy of your own home while wearing workout clothes? “Saturday Night Live” hilariously spoofed the, uh, sexual nature of the product’s infomercial, but that didn’t do much to dissuade my interest. My upper arms need some work. Seriously, Shake Weight people — send me one to test out! Keep reading »

Brace Yourselves For The “Marshmallow Soft” Hoodie-Footie

You can learn a lot from this video. For example, even though I’m the Style Editor here at The Frisky, I was not aware that “footed PHs for women are all the rage” right now. Really!? Good to know, good to know. In combining slippers, a hoodie and a blanket, the new Hoodie-Footie Snuggle Suit rips a page right out of the ever-popular Snuggie handbook by insisting that blankets are hazardous, inconvenient and completely restrict your movement, which as we all know by now, is so sadly true. But this time, there are also economic reasons why you simply must slip into one, as they insist that these puppies will totally cut down your heating bills! With the Hoodie-Footie priced at a whopping $49.95, you’ll probably need all that extra cash anyway. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Watch out Snuggie. There’s a new random must-have infomercial product on everyone’s wish list this holiday season: The Necky. It’s for everyone who loves to spend money on random items, or the truly lazy who can’t figure out how to properly tie a scarf. For the low price of $9.95, two of these scarves with bibs can be yours in a variety of colors and patterns, including “Designer Leopard.” Or maybe this can be a two-part present, to make it a Snuggie and Necky holiday season where no one gets cold ever?

More Products For Obscenely Lazy People!


We may be in the middle of a recession, but companies keep churning out products for people who are too lazy to wipe their own butts. Take, for example, the Shoedini. I have no idea if this is a new product or an old standby, but it’s the first I’ve seen of it. If bending over to take off your shoes requires too much time and effort that could be spent sitting on your fat butt watching infomercials and eating chicken wings, then the Shoedini is for you. I suppose this product would be acceptable for someone dealing with back problems, like our own dear Simcha, who has been laid up at home for almost two months after a botched spinal tap and can’t bend over, but she’s Simcha, goddamnit. She’s special. [$14.99, Shoedini via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Anyway, we’ll just go ahead and let these “Underpants For Your Hands” speak for themselves. Also, you can order them here, for real. [Gizmodo] Keep reading »
