I don't get it... a continuing series

One of the stranger things I've seen advertised on television lately is an eyelash brush with... and I swear I'm not making this up... a built-in motor. Apparently the motor vibrates the brush and this purportedly results in, well... something extraordinary.

I'm thinking this must actually be some sort of ditz detector... which alerts the cosmo-bots at the face-spackle counter to the presence of borderline morons... who will buy into pretty much anything some cutting edge fashionista stoner might dream up.

And who exactly are the folks who can rhyme off the personal experiences and vital statistics of all the bimbos getting boinked by professional athletes? I mean... besides Lloyd Robertson?

Could we possibly dumb life down any more than this?


UPDATE: So, the question was...

...what kind of a moron... and well, of course...

Hey Neo..I'm sure Wendy Cukier is organizing a protest over this as we speak! This is a horrible danger..and a 'poke in the eye' to wimmin all over the country. Rise up wimmin..rise up! (or should it be wise up???)

stuff like this... to me, it's an argument that the human race is actually de-evolving.

but the sheeple just blithely proceed along the road to the edge of the cliff.

again... i don't get it.

Not unlike the idiotic blade wars that are going on right now for the right to shave mens faces.

I mean, seriously, do we really need 5 freaking razor blades and an aloe embedded teflon strip to hack off the four layers of epidermis from our face?

how about the ford commercials where women are raving about vehicles based on stuff like... "i can turn the interior light pink"... or "my boyfriend put a milkshake in the onboard cooler."

good grief.
