Guaranteed to Wreck Your TV?

Lots of people have a Wii. And those of us who were NOT early adopters were lucky enough to get them after they added the wrist straps to prevent unwanted TV destruction.

Yet some companies seem bound and determined to bring back those good old days.

Let me introduce into evidence Exhibit A:

The CTA Digital Wii Bowling Ball.

Yep, you can just see it now, huh? The broken glass, the screaming and wailing.....the lawsuits.

Which might be why CTA added in this little disclaimer:

"CTA Digital, Inc. is not and will not be held responsible for any damages resulting from the bowling ball attachment,"

Nah!? Really??

They also highly recommend that unlike in real bowling, you never, ever release the ball. Yea, good luck with that.

Think I'm gonna steer clear of this one, unless of course I find a crappy TV and am in a seriously destructive mood.

My Kind of Doctor

A friend sent this to me the other day. Thought I would share because it was pretty darn funny. I especially like the part about chocolate!

Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?

A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it ... don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.. (Amen to that!)

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?

A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?

A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?

A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc. (He he he)

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?

A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good!

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?

A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!! ..... Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?

Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?

A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.

Q: Is chocolate bad for me?

A: Are you crazy? HELLO !! Cocoa beans ! Another vegetable !!! It's the best feel-good food around! (This guy is genius!)

Q: Is swimming good for your figure?

A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.

Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?

A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape! Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets. And remember: 'Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO, What a Ride' (My dad always says, "Live fast, die hard and have a good looking corpse!)

AND.....For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Baby UFO

This looks more like ET's spaceship that came to rescue him after he phoned home but a baby stroller (aka pram)? Not so much.

Can you imagine trying to maneuver this behemoth (read: big a$$ metal baby stroller) through the aisles in a store? probably wouldn't need a cart. But hey! Where is the coffee cup holder!? Sheesh.

And yet another important point: who has a trunk large enough for this thing? It sure doesn't look like it folds up. Maybe you need to have a hitch on the back of your car along with a "Wide Load' sign.

Some Assembly Required?!

There is a rumor floating around that Ikea might be getting into the automobile biz. I'm not quite sure, based on the vague information provided, what that means exactly. But I hope that it does NOT mean this:

Can you imagine assembling a car with the little L-shaped metal tool thingy they give you not to mention the assembly booklet with the pictures? I already am apoplectic just thinking about it.

The Other White Meat

This made me laugh out loud.

This? Made me throw up in my mouth a little. Seriously, this is pushing things too far. I love me some bacon and all but lip balm? No.
