And the foolishness begins...

Like all Americans (and many people around the world) I'm thrilled to have a new President and a fresh perspective in the white house. There are many ways to express your sense of pride and excitement and it was only time until people came out with hood ideas. I managed to tolerate the bootleg t-shirts that popped up everywhere, some not even resembling President Obama at all... but gold/silver "Obama" chains? I think this idea should get scrapped ASAP.




While I'm on my little rant let me just throw out a few other products that I think we could all do without:

1. Official Dirty Dancing workout dvd

2. Sham-Wow

3. Snuggie

@ Eb - I saw the beenie babies on someone elses blog. But you should have known the chains were coming, when I saw obama cut into someone's fade. lol

I wrote about that damn snuggie already. I agree.

Somebody is buying these things, though!

I didn't think the beanie babies were that bad. I mean, it's crossing the line in terms of respecting the privacy/rights of the children but they were cute.

As for the chain, it is hideous! That looks NOTHING like President Obama.

The snuggie is ridiculous! I hope nobody is really buying those things...I mean, I can only assume that the target demographic are older individuals that don't know any better...and that damn sham wow...ugh. I don't even know where to begin. The guy that is talking in the infomercial is a complete tool. I can't stand him.

the chains are ridiculous, and so are the snuggie and the dirty dancing workout tape. i want the shamwow though!

South Loop Social Light said...

I can't bring myself to spend money on something called a "shamwow" lol...but when you get yours be sure to let me know how you like it.

I'm not gonna lie; me and my girl got caught up in the hype and said "fuck it" and bought a sham wow. Shit is garbage as fuck. I didn't expect it to be as effective as the commercial but it doesn't even come close

South Loop Social Light said...

The commercial really does suck you in and it seems like it might actually work...but I'll take your word for it. I don't even know what sham wow means! Where'd they get that from? lol...
