We have a show here about advertising that has been featuring the worst products of all time. This one I saw last night had me going WTF?

There is also a link to some other products ads on their website. I would strong recommend checking out the sticky nipples.

:lol: at the poo trap. My uncle and his best friend created something very similar and tried to get it patented so that they could sell it. Poor uncle - he swore it would make him rich and famous... :shuffle:.

Worse than the Chevy Nova? No va to the vast majority of South America as well as a significant number of Americans.

I know I'm buying some if I can find it in the stores around here.

That skit is hilarious.

The ice cream sounds pretty good so I'll try a pint in honor of Pete Schweddy!!!

Potty Putter? Yes, because we all know you have trouble missing those putts while sitting that are less than 1 foot from the hole.

Or the exploding Ford Pinto? What a joy to be riding in that back seat.

What was wrong with it? My parents owned one for 10 years, and they never had any problems with it. I've certainly never heard any stories about it a la the Pinto or the Corvair.

Wow the Kush - hmmmm interesting.

I think someone posted here a while ago about the Comfort Wipe but it is always worth revisiting.
