prompt Tuesday - the ShowerOCizer

OK I was finally going to post about the Great Clam Rescue of 2008 when Cheri at Blog This Mom reminded me that it's Prompt Tuesday. And what do I find this week but a challenge to write an INFOMERCIAL? I just have to do this one.





Here's the product:

And here's the "rules."

This week, write an infomercial about the above photo.

  • You must write your entry in 10 minutes. This encourages top-of-mind, primal thinking before the ego and judgmental brain kicks in. Just set a timer, make your kid count to 600 slowly, whatever. It’s an honor system. And I trust you.
  • For this one, keep to 350 words or less.
  • Please have fun. Don’t put pressure on yourself. Together, let’s rediscover the simple joy in the writing process.
  • Post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.
The Shower-O-Cizer:
Tired of trying to squeeze in a workout before a long day at the office or between the job and the family?
Annoyed that if you find time for the workout, you can't find the time for the cleanup?
Or finding you're cutting into the workout time in order to get cleaned up for the office?
Well Be Annoyed No More!
Let the Revolutionary Shower-O-Cizer help you grab that workout AND that shower, all at the same time.
This patented, state of the art exercizer with future-tech carbon graphite tubing allows you to workout AND shower - yes - all at the same time. While the body is pumping up the arms, the chest, the core, by doing dips and crunches on the extendo-bar, the patented-water-blast pump system delivers a warm rain shower overhead. The shower-o-cizer comes with an original step-by-step exercise guide to help you maximize your minimal workout routine. No need to be late for the boss's meeting. Show up spiffed up and buffed up in just the amount of time it take you to shower. Go ahead and grab that donut, too, knowing you started your day with the Shower-O-Cizer.
And that's not all. Act now and we'll throw in the waterproof cardio belt to measure the heartrate and the calories burned, all during the convenience of a shower. That's right, burn calories, pump up the heart rate, buff up the chest, slim down those abs, simply by taking a shower before work.

That's right, you get the Shower-o-Cizer, the exercize manual, the cardio belt, and the Smelltheburn showe gel all for the low price of just 29.99 [plus shipping and handling]. Act now. order yours today.

"...help you maximize your minimal workout routine..."

Snort! That's exactly the kind of advertising that'd make me buy.

Totally serious.

::Snorts coffee:: BWAHAHAHAHA

This was just what I needed to start my morning out right...

The laugh...not the ShowerOCizer.

Hell, I get enough of a workout just taking a regular shower...I'm even short of breath when I get out...

(and no people, it is not because of the shower massage...get yer mind outta the gutter...or is that just me alone in the gutter?)

That is cute. really, I looked at it and could not come up with anything. Looks like something my kid made in the play room with some toys. :)
Good job, you can sell anything.

OK, clearly it's been a while since my husband pounced upon me (actually it's only been 3 days), but I saw that and I saw "Bizarre Home-Made Sex Toy".

I know, I know.... I can't help the way my mind works.

I must say though - I've been to the gym 4 times this week (you may have heard about it on CNN) and I really can't imagine doing the workout and the shower at the same time. I like to keep them separate.

Thanks for the laugh though. :-)

PS: Have you gotten that "puppy fixation" out of your system yet???
