As Seen on TV

I have a confession. I'm kind of a sucker for infomercials. Sigh. It does feel good to get it off my chest. The Giovanni's Roll Out Keyboard, the Perfect Brownie and good old Debbie Myer's GreenBags (don't forget the Snuggie!). Love 'em or hate 'em, when that in-faux-mercial comes on, you kind of CAN'T change the channel. What are they going to throw in, I ponder? Wait, that's not all!? How many easy payments before I can own this piece of television history?

Alright, so there's a bit of deflated sarcasm mixed in with that confession. The truth is, I DO watch infomercials, but usually only because they are so stereotypically ridiculously hilarious. However, the other night, after enjoying a few libations, em and i settled on to the couch and flipped on the telly. WHOA! THE TOPSY FUCKING TURVY!

after our garden master mary left the nest, i've always been a bit afraid and intimidated of the backyard greenery. fortunately, emma has taken the reins and we're chugging along nicely back there. well this, this wonderful, revolutionary new plant technology could transform our backyard into a bountiful lush tomato production facility. WOW! And that's not all, for only $19.99 they'll throw in A SECOND topsy turvy hanging tomato planter for FREE! PLUS a recipe guide and a handy kitchen slicer! Plus, the topsy turvy not only grows tomatoes, it can also be used for zucchini, peppers, cucumbers or home grown herbs!

sigh. i think i need help.

the phrase "lush tomato production facility" has made me crack up at least a half dozen times today. Thank you for that!
