    I sell fitness equipment a couple of days a week to supplement my inconsistent freelance writing income, and I have a whole "As Seen on TV" section of stuff where I work. There's one thing called "Leg Magic" that always makes me wonder what would happen if they sold something called "Ass Magic." Maybe they do, just at a different kind of store -- if you know what I mean.

    This one may be gimmicky, but it's how I got MY body..... And also how I learned English!!!







    Take

    Anything

    Youwant!


    Very interesting to see the juxtaposition of the phrases they deem necessary for a Japanese woman in America.....

    What I find the most funny tho, are not the products themselves, but the serious attention to which they are given on fitness forums like RJ, in the regular "Anyone every try this? Does it really work? Thinking about buying this" posts. Cue P.T. Barnum...

    I remember this thing! Now here's the kicker... when I was 4 or 5 I remember seeing the advertisement for this on the TV, and taking the rotating plate off my mother's cake mixer and using it like a Twistone! icon_lol.gif

    This is still my favorite gimmicky exercise equipment:

    OMG, that learning English through exercise was disturbing! Always a shocker to discover how the rest of the world views the US, that key English phrases to learn would be:

    "Take anything you want."
    "Spare me my life."
    "I was robbed by two men."

    I used to live in Japan, and when my friends (who were all English teachers) and I would see that program we couldn't hold back our laughter.

    Every time I fly, I get to read about this exciting device in SkyMall:

    Exercise in just 4 minutes a day. The machine only costs $14,615, so why not?
