Product: Thong Pads

I never really thought about what women who wear thongs do when it's that time of the month. Last trip to the grocery store I found out:

Stupid Product: Cupcake Holder

My daughter and I were shopping today and saw this:

Yes, a domed glass cupcake holder. How practical! For just about every celebratory occasion I have a need to present one cupcake in a grand manner, where I can lift the dome, revealing...a solitary cupcake!

This beauty normally sells for $12.99, however at the store where we shopped, it was on sale for $4.99. Which is still $4.98 too much.

Stupid Product: Healthy Hoohoo

Yes, you read that right. Healthy Hoohoo. And it means exactly what you think it does. It's vaginal cleansing!

The press release has some killer funny lines, like these:

"By avoiding over-washing and harsh cleansers, women who have been using healthy hoohoo are reporting improved moisture, comfort and odor conditions." 

(Odor conditions????)

"When it comes to feminine cleansing, “less is more,” so hoohoo’s formula liberates the body to do what it needs to do. The vagina, after all, is a self-cleaning oven."

(Now, I've heard of a bun in the oven, but a SELF-CLEANING OVEN? Can't say I ever thought of my hoohoo as an oven before, though I guess you could say it gets hot down there! Oh my.)

"healthy hoohoo products are tested on gal pals, not animals"

(Hey, girlfriend, would you mind checking out my new feminine hygienic cleanser, and telling me how your hoohoo smells after?)

So I had to check out the website, where the motto is "woohoo for hoohoo"


The about section had this great line:

After falling victim to mass marketing campaigns for all manner of popular soaps, soaks, cleansers and lotions, Stacy Lyon (a marketer herself by trade) found herself feeling far from fresh and"down there." Stacy thought "I thought I was doing her a favor, by keeping her tidy and smelling like a lavender bouquet."

What am I missing here in life? My crotch has never smelled like a lavender bouquet. As for keeping "down there" tidy, I just assume that would mean some waxing during bathing suit season, not some "popular soaps, soaks, cleansers and lotions." Do people really spend that much effort cleansing their "hoohoos?" Especially since they're self-cleaning ovens?

You can buy this product as a foamer, "light, fluffy and full of nurturing goodness." Or as a hoohoo wash, "a shampoo for your hoohoo, who knew?" 

It's no wonder their media page is empty, except for "coming soon - words of praise, love and holy hoohoo it's about time." Yeah, maybe they'll add this review to it!

Stupid Press Release: Tips for a Healthy Summer Vacation

I just got a press release on behalf of a preventive health company. From E. Towers Mingledorff to be exact. That's not the company name, that's the PR person's name.

This press release is what I call GENERIC and a WASTE OF MONEY. Yes, emails may be free. But buying lists of journalist email addresses is not.

Here is the not-so-helpful list that they provide on how to have a healthy summer vacation. I think my 8 year old could have come up with a better list.

1. Watch what you eat.
2. Drink plenty of water.
3. Wash your hands often.
4. Get adequate sleep.
5. Pack a first-aid kit.
6. Protect yourself from insect bites.
7. Protect yourself from the sun.
8. When traveling internationally.
(yes there is information BELOW this tip, however this is the numbered tip, complete with a period at the end)
9. Beware aware of recreational water illnesses.
10. Traveling with a health condition.
(see #8)

P.S. I checked out E. Towers Mingledorff online. His first name is Edmond. He's got a lovely fiance and is getting married 12/31/12. He's registered at Macy's, Pottery Barn and
