pour some water on me

Being the loser that I am I spend a lot of time watching VH-1 Classic and Nickelodeon..one not by choice..



ON both channels I have seen this ad...Every time I see this I think to myself.



self, holy shit



To me its pure amazement that anyone would buy this, And I'm certainly hoping non of you have, or this may take a bad turn for the both of us..



anyway...what I am referring to is this.

If you have ever watched this ad, and listen to at great lengths like I have...you will find it utterly amazing.





Right in the ad it is stated that basically this is used when you aren't sure how to water a fuckin plant. It prevents over watering and well, under watering.


Now I think to myself.



self, what tool cant water a plant?



If you have trouble knowing how to water a plant, please for the love of God, don't have any plants.


Maybe have a little cactus, they don't need much water, or hell, get some dried flowers, your set there...just don't water them..


or get a hamster...


or buy a stuffed rabbit.


These ads get stupider and stupider. For years the Clapper use to make me giggle. But now adays when I'm laying in bed and too mother truckin lazy to turn the light off I think to myself



self, you shoulda bought a clapper instead of making fun of the tools that did




But I will be damned if I'm ever going to need an Aqua Globe. I'm not that big of a loser.



If you have trouble remember how to water a plant, or how much water to give a plant, or anything of the sort.


Dont.Buy.A.Damn.Plant.

and for God sakes don't breed.

First Bitches!!!

I love those infomercials. Without the hubs to be the voice of reason I would get sucked in every time. I totally believe they do what they claim they will.

Patti,
I once bought some things 4 the kids off the tv, the suckers broke the day they opend it..

one was a digi draw, and i 4get what the other was...

its all cheaply made and worth not a penny..glad the hubs gives u the voice of reason, or i would have to:)

Shannon said...

Too funny!! I haven't seen this one, I will have to keep a look out for the commercial now, lol.

just_tammy said...

Seen it and since I have one house plant (the rest are outside), I'd have to come up with three others loser who might need the others. All I do is toss some water it's way every Monday morning and it's still with us after four years so I guess I can live without...

My favorite thing to do is to read the reviews of whatever product catches my eye. Today it was the derma wand. Turns out people either love it or hate it. There's no middle of the road on this one it seems. Still thinking about purchasing the kettlebell workout once it shows up in the stores. They want you to set up an account with them. Why I wonder...You have opened a can of worms with this one...We'll find out what people have shelled out money for...

Flip Flop Momma said...

Shannon,
the commercail is on youtube..go watch it.

Tam,
I have never heard of that other one you talk about..


although I tell u something i am dying to get is the shamwow towel..

that shit is callin my name

So Not The Bradys said...

Oh man, the shamwow has me excited too. And my husband said, "If it worked that great, you could buy it in the damn store."

Those watering thingies. First thing I thought is nothing like planting a weapon in your plant. Some toddler or youngin' would pull it out and El Kabong a sibling on the noggin. Yeah, shattered glass in the scalp always makes for a grand time.

just_tammy said...

Oooo, forgot about the shamwow! I sooo want one. All I've seen are the knock offs in the store. I might have to break down and order one so I too can say shamwow! Time to read some shamwow reviews...I am such a loser...

IamDerby said...

Shit I was totally gonna buy that. I can never remember to water my damn plants... I should just throw them out but I cant, its a horrible cycle of kill, resurrect, and kill again. I do have kids, but for some reason I remember to feed and water them.

Flip Flop Momma said...

Bradys,
that is my thought as well, but man the commercails make it look so fuckin awesome..

I dont know..

Tam
well u can be the 1st one to order it, and then let the rest of us know how bad it sucks:)

i tell u, im thisclose to getting one.

Derby,
dont get it....just tie a string round your finger and u will remeber;)

Wendy said...

There is something about those damn infomercials that suck you in everytime! How do they do that? No, I have never bought one of these but you can bet your ass I watch that commercial!

1 plus twins said...

ha ha that is so funny, i have seen that add many times and my family says they are buying it for me cuz i eiter over water or under water and kill every thing. lol so i only have silk in the house. can't kill those but damn they get dusty. lol another thing to clean. lol

catscratch said...

Oh yah! I'm a tool. I've even killed a cactus, girl. I'm sure it was due to overwatering.... as I'm not 100% sure you can underwater one of those bad boys.

And ya know what... I'm all about plant genocide... cuz I just keep on buying new one to replace the ones I've sent to plant heaven.

xoxo

Mrs. K said...

funny my daughter wants me to buy this because our plants wilt when we go away- she saw it at walgreens and she went all crazy on me over that stupid globe thing

aatank said...

My dad bought my mom one for mother's day and she liked it so well that she bought a bunch more off QVC...they now sit in boxes in her garage. She is a sucker for all dumb things.

Flip Flop Momma said...

Haphazardkat said...

I am the black thumb of plant death. Plants see me comin in a store and scootch off screaming dragging their little roots behind them.
MiniWarrior was watching that commercial where you roll out the sheet of flowers--he was all, "MOmmmmmm we gottta GET that!!" I tried to explain how those TV bitches lie and we'd only get a rug of weeds...but he wasn't hearing it.
Good thing I haven't taught him how to order shizzle online or my yard would be filled with those weedy ass sheets.

Flip Flop Momma said...

Slick,
I would love to know what the sales are too...we should come up with some piece of shit thing and sell it on tv...we need some greenbacks to keep our boy in a good military school.

Kat,
I saw those too...damn...they look appelaing, but I tell u what, I bet its full of mary jane seeds and when it starts to grow..BAM your ass is in the county hotel..

I just know it.

The Woman said...

lmao my aunt has three of those dam things

metalmom said...

Um....I killed a cactus. I over watered my Mother's Day plants and I under watered my Easter Plants.

My Husband has ordered me the Aqua Globes............


WAAAH!!! I'm a LOSER!!

- Jules - said...

I will admit it.. I suck at keeping plants alive. Thankfully my kids can fend for themselves or they would starve as well! lol

I love these kinds of commercials, because even fucktards need their own shopping networks! lol

Flip Flop Momma said...

The woman,
NOT cool;)

MetalMOm,
Oh hell NO..im putting a stop to this ASAP.

Jules,
right on!

damn people..

Janell said...

Yeah, I've been running across a lot of people lately that shouldn't breed. Good advice. If you can't keep a plant alive howintheheck are you gonna take care of a kid?

Groovy Mom said...

I have only two plants. I have had them since the day I got married. That was almost 21 years ago! This is how I water them. I wait until they are wilted and the leaves are turning brown, and then I think, "Oh shit, my plants are dying," so I dump a ton of water in them, and they come back to life. Those plants must love this treatment because they just keep living.

Slick said...

It's against manlaw to buy that crap so this post is safe between the both of us :)

Humincat said...

My daughter keeps telling me she likes the blue one.....

Now THAT would make an interesting roll-out! HA!

Jamie Dawn said...

I saw that commercial, and I thought those globes were quite ugly. I did not see any redeeming value in the look of those hideous globes.
I agree with you. If you can't water your plants, then get a cactus or some silk plants.
