Shameless.

There's nothing I love more than waking up (I sleep with TV on) to someone talking about their daughter's poo being as thick as his wrist.

Seriously though, what's with infomercials being so lame, stupid and sometimes gross?

if it's not that scat guy, it's weight loss, workouts, that NASCAR erectile dysfunction guy, the penis pump, and so on.

And then between the infomercials, you have like, 7 minute long commercials, like Peggy from The Cancer Center whose old doctor pretty much told her to "just go to the store" while the other one told her after he did a lot on tests on her they didn't see an expiration date stamped on her foot (apparently that's a test they conduct), which make her go 'Wow'.

(note: no offense meant to cancer survivors, but after seeing the above commercial so many times, her choice of words and emphasis of such words gets a little annoying)

I guess my main point is.. is there any other early bird (or insomniac) that hates such commercials? Especially when it seems every network is showing them? Also, 11 AM on a Saturday is way too late to be showing infomercials. Those networks have to stop interfering with my saturday cartoons!

What gets me the most about those infomercials and this is especially true of the penis pump and other sexual enhancement remedy's is one of their big selling points is that it is covered by Medicare Part D, why in the wide, wide world of sports am I paying for old people's penis pumps and boner pills?

Loyal insomniac checking in. I get home late and now it's come to the point where I really only wacth the movie channels or movies on my laptop, or read a book. I'm happy you brought this up actually. Tonight I watched VH1 to see there 100 greatest artist countdown show. Anyway on EVERY SINGLE GODDAMN COMMERCIAL BREAK, there was a minute long ad featuring Justin Bieber whining about getting a pimple once a month and how this certain medication made him the "ladykiller" he is today. I have never had a greater urge to throw my TV off my porch.

No wonder Justin Bieber got hit with a water bottle.

The best infomercial I ever saw was for a weight machine, that was being advertised by Chuck Norris, Mr. T and Wesley Snipes. I kid you not.

What is the product even about? A potion to make your daughter's shit smaller or something?
