More Gift Ideas

The item has been around for at least 2 years, and always shows up in December. A gift for that truly desperate person in your life.

I've seen various models of it. Another catalog (which Frank colored in, so I couldn't use the picture) had one that actually (I swear!) was powered by AA batteries and said: "It vibrates soothingly, just like a real man!"

I suppose this is true, provided your idea of a "real man" is headless, legless, one-armed, half-torsoed, and "vibrates soothingly".

But if your idea of a "real man" involves vibration and batteries, maybe you should be looking in a different sort of catalog.

And to think it's only $19.95... You can't get a real boyfriend for that price...

As you are looking at crazy gift ideas, I thought I would share this one: https://www.home-backup-protection.com/index.html

I had to wipe the tears away watching the commerical for the video.

I think I shouldn't have clicked on that! You are depraved! but it did make me laugh.

CrownedWithVictory- Wow. That's just the thing for my patients with REM sleep disorder.

This is my pick for "boyfriend replacement christmas present" and it's even environmentally friendly (as opposed to most 'normal' boyfriends)

that is: "video for the commercial". I haven't had enough coffee yet.

I think many women have a BOB (battery operated boyfriend) already...

That's very sad in a pathetic sort of way.

Hmm... it lays around all day. Doesn't work. Doesn't pay a single penny towards rent, utilities, etc. Doesn't help with chores. Sounds like my last boyfriend. I think I'll pass.

Pffttt....if they wanted to make it more like a real man, they should have added a "flatulence release" feature that farts every 20 minutes, back hair, and mobilized the arm to steal the remote control.

They should sell these with this product http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJf_H35iyK4

The pillow boyfriend might not feel so used.

Why oh why did I click on the link. Rentals? Really? I think I just threw up a little...


...and why did you know such a thing existed?

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Anon- It's a hoax. I talked about it in 2 previous posts.

OMG....my sister and I were making fun of this a few weeks ago. It would make a great gag gift.

It was on sale at overstock.com; the comments by buyers was as funny at the pillow itself!

"It vibrates soothingly, just like a real man!"

I've never vibrated soothingly... actually, it's quite disconcerting.

Regarding the "Earth Angel", is that for smoothing concrete?

These are actually from Japan. http://www.usatoday.com/news/offbeat/2004-09-29-man-pillow_x.htm

They even have a girlfriend pillow for the men out there.
