There's More than the Amputee-of-the-Day on the Today Show


There are awesome products advertised too.

I saw a commercial for this on the Today Show this morning, and it FREAKED ME OUT! All I could think about was so much peeled fruit, exposed to the air; how many fingers would have touched it before and during the arranging; the different rooms and hallways it would have passed through...

I imagined a disgruntled worker (who might have had to search the couch cushions for the kid's lunch money that morning) picturing what kind of Christmas-sweater-wearing-QVS-watching-beBotoxed person would spend $90 on such hideous fly-bait and then licking each piece of cantaloupe and sticking the grapes up his/her nose.

tania rochelle van catoe, i'll have you know i have sent several of these fly catchers to people i know, love and/or respect (not necessarily all three). what's the difference between this fruit and the food we eat in restaurants or buy from the local deli. huh, huh? now i feel like i've done something horrible.

Were you wearing a holiday sweater when you ordered?

We get these in the office from time to time. You know they come wrapped, so it's not like they're exposed to the elements in route.

I was never grossed out by this before I read your post. Now, I'll have to think twice. It's probably a good thing I don't work in an office anymore.

I guess it's just me, then.

Fruit = gross

Unless it's fruit juice. Where's my sippy-cup...
