This post is more of a WTF category, just a couple of things I’ve come across recently that made me stop and take a second look…
The first one was at a truck stop somewhere between Melbourne and Canberra.
While washing hands in a toilet, I’ve noticed a vending machine that was selling Tingler Rings.
Looks like our truckies have become more sophisticated, more adventurous. It’s not enough to just grab a plain old condom from a machine for a quick “pit-stop” on a way. Now they are looking for the Tingler Ring – a product promising you to “Boldly glow where no man has glowed before”.
It also promises to “Prolong The Pleasure Of Sex” – I always thought that our truck drivers work on a tight schedule, they would be more interested in a product that will allow them to get maximum satisfaction in a shortest time possible…you know, “in, out, back on the road again”?
The second thing that made me go “hmmm” was the banner in a local health shop.
For a reason that escapes me, they posted a question “What’s in your tampon?”
Now, I’m not too sure what they are trying to achieve here… If they want to know what tampons are made of, they might be better off directing the question to the manufactures. If they want to know what’s in a tampon after it’s been used, I don’t even want to go there.
Being a health shop specializing in all things “natural”, I suspect they wanted to make people aware of some different type of tampons made of natural, or recycled ingredients.
What I find hard to swallow, even harder than a tampon staring in my face, is the fact that they sell those horrible drinks there, they call it “coffee” but it’s made from the soy milk and dandelions. No human should be allowed to suffer through drinking that horrible stuff.
Maybe next they should put up a poster asking “How to make real coffee?”
