    Most of the people who buy infomercial products can't read, so this may not go very far.

      That's true and funny.  If all else fails in the writing biz I can always sell a product on QVS

    I remember in the '70s, when TV shut down at about 10.30pm, and just before the queen appeared and the national anthem was played, there was a infomercial every night.  There was one which told people to look out for milk bottles building up outside the front doors of elderly neighbours.  There was also one which showed a cartoon character drowning after eating a full-course meal before swimming in the ocean.  There was also one which showed a child being killed while flying their kite under a powerline.  This one terified me as a child.

    Are we talking about infomercials or PSA's?

      Infomercials I thought....
      The snuggie with the but flap kills me, or the foot scrubber that prevents you from having to bend over, this is good for preggers. 
      Or the space bags you use a vacuum to seal.  What if you vacuum is a POS and doesn't have good suction?
      I could go on....

    I seem to recall a product (back in the 1980's) that was, for all intents and purposes..spray paint, that men would use to hide bald spots on their head. I also recall that it was endorsed by actor, Ted Danson. Does anyone remember what it was called?

    I hate to say this, but I see those products in Walgreen's and I want them!

    Does it make me wrong to want to use the handy chopper, the super sharp knives that never need sharpening, the ceramic non stick pan, and the grabber?

    Am I a sucker for any cleaning item that comes on a long stick that makes it easier to scrub the tub? Well, yes I am.

      I am too, Xenolit.  Have you seen the bowl thing that shreds cheese or garlic?  Who can not want the mini burger grill.
