A few weeks ago, we received the worst press release ever. Fleshlight, the purveyor of fine synthetic vagina-like products for men, sent us a PR pitch about getting dad “the best gift a father could ask for.” We think they were kidding. But we still needed to scrub our brains with bleach, then spray them with Lysol and Swiffer their tiny crevices.

Kaley Cuoco of “The Big Bang Theory” apparently loves infomercials, and didn’t get why Ellen made fun of the Shake Weight

Everyone wants Michelle Obama’s amazing arms. However, no one wants to work to actually get them. Voilà the Shake Weight, a “revolutionary” exercise gadget for women that guarantees bangin’ muscles. All you do is hold the weight in front of you, grip the movable handle with both hands, and shake, shake, shake. You hardly have to move at all thanks to a made-up sounding concept called “dynamic inertia.” The best part? You need only spend six minutes a day looking like a complete idiot to get the super toned, lean arms you’ve always wanted. Don’t believe it? Extensive studies were conducted at a “prestigious California university.” Would that be the California University of New Technologies? (Think about it.) [YouTube] Keep reading »
