This is normal, right?

It's not just me, is it? Surely this has occurred to someone else. Every time I see an ad for this product:



My first thought is always that it's a laxative.

Right? Right? Come on.

"advanced" also makes it sound like you better be IN the bathroom when you take it.

Bilbo said...

And "Free" sounds like it ought to be ... well ... you know ...

But I agree with you, not that you give a ... never mind.

Herb of DC said...

makes you wonder what MoveOn.org really does.

Gilahi said...

Mike - Yeah, you don't want to operating any heavy machinery.

Bilbo - Exactly. Nobody wants a product called "MoveWithALotOfEffort".

Herb - This seems apropos, because in both cases I think I'll feel better when something is accomplished.

My husband got some of that for his squeaky bones, and I totally mistook it for a laxative.

And took it. It didn't work. But my knees felt mahvelous!

urban bohemian said...

As others have mentioned, it's not only "Advanced" but it's also "Triple Strength".

I think Colon Blow has some competition.

Gilahi said...

bozoette - Actually, that's pretty good. You certainly don't want your knees to stiffen up while you're waiting for your laxative to work.

bo - You don't mind if I call you Bo, do you? Can you imagine what would happen if these products were combined? The term "explosive" springs to mind.

And now your writing "jingles" for them? LOL

Oh my.

Melissa B. said...

That's so funny! Perhaps I should include it in my Silly Sunday Sweepstakes?

Gilahi said...

DC - What?

Melissa - Feel free. Which is a product I might actually buy.

LiLu said...

Wait... it's not? WTF is it?!

Although I'm sure no one's surprised that's exactly where MY mind would go...

D.C. Confidential said...

Well, I was going to continue my thought, but a) it was ageist and given that you and I pretty close in age I was thinking that would be uncool and b) a day later, I can't remember what I was going to write, which is a definitely a sign that I am getting old. Perhaps I need this. Does it work for brain cells and retrieving lost thoughts?

Gilahi said...

LiLu - I think it's some sort of joint stuff for old people like me.

DC - I really have no idea what it works for. That would require reading fine print and my eyes aren't what they used to be.

Katherine said...

I didn't know what it was either, LiLu. Hello, my friend, Google.

Gilahi said...

Katherine - I'm really glad that it wasn't just me.

I tend to avoid consuming anything that advises you to not operate heavy machinery afterwards. I am fascinated by heavy machinery and if I ever get a chance to operate some of it, I will be soooo all over it! Every time I see the mentioned product I have to do a double take too! WTH is it I ask myself all confused!?! Then I ah'member it's for squeeky joint syndrome. I hear wd-40 offers the same effect but you don't have to drink it to get the job done. Thanks for the giggle!

Gilahi said...

Well, at least if you drank the WD-40, I think that drowsiness would be the least of your problems.
