For the Truly Lazy

In case you have been trying in vain to find more ways to burn less calories, help is on the way. The folks over at SeeFred have developed some products that will help you conserve energy. In these trying economic times, we really do need to conserve all we can.

 

 First up is the Motorized Ice Cream Cone. Yes, just pop some batteries into this puppy and you’ll never again have to waste calories or risk carpal tunnel syndrome by turning the ice cream cone with your hand. This handy device will take care of the task for you.

 

 

 

 

 

But what about spaghetti, you ask? It’s such a strenuous task to twirl the fork to get the spaghetti on it. Not to worry–we’ve got you covered here also. Similar to the ice cream cone, just put some batteries in, push the button and the Spaghetti Fork will take care of the rest.

 

 

 

 

Really,  how lazy could you possibly be to not want to spin your own fork or ice cream cone? These products just put us one step closer to being brains in a jar that have no need for muscles. Simply outrageous.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some shopping to do.

Dumb Marketing Slogans

There’s coffee shop near where I work called Monday Morning. I guess that’s fine. I’m not a big fan of Mondays (okay, I hate Mondays), but fine, name your business whatever you like. However, they stepped over the line with their slogan: “When everyday is a Monday.” If every day is Monday, I want no part of it thank you very much.

Another one that puzzles me is the Fat Boy ice cream sandwich. What marketing genius came up with this name? Is this really supposed to encourage me to buy them? It should be obvious that you buy them, you eat them, then you become one yourself.

Finally, if you didn’t see my post a few weeks ago, the Scotland tourism bureau spent US$250,000 for this gem: “Welcome to Scotland”

Maybe I should get into marketing. If this is the best they can come up, I know that I can do better.
