Beware the Frobble Gleamer!!!

Are your frobbles gleamed? Are they as shiny as they could be? No? Well, in that case, YOU need a Frobble Gleamer. With one simple click of a switch, you can have the shiniest frobbles in your neighborhood and be the envy of your friends! And what a great gift. Think about it! If you order now, we'll send you not one but TWO Frobble Gleamers, one for yourself and one to give away. (Batteries not included)...

Okay - so it sounds like a commercial written by Dr. Seuss, but it's familiar... There are Frobble Gleamers in everyone's closet. Hands up if you've got a Veg-O-Matic. Or a Salad Shooter. Or an electric rice-steamer. How about a pore cleansing sauna? Hot, steam-powered rollers? A garlic baker? A rotating brush to clean your tub? (If your bath's that dirty, you might want to rethink your career choices!!!)

This year's Frobble Gleamer? The digital photo frame! Of COURSE we love photos. Kids are cute, puppies and kittens bring a smile to everyone's face and that tropical sunset....priceless. BUT...before you rush out and buy one, consider this. There's a photo out there of you pulling a wedgie out of your butt. Also one of you with your face screwed up and your mascara running as you sneeze. What's going to end up on that rotating digital display? Yep. You guessed it. And you KNOW that thing is going onto someone's desk at work, not deep in their basement where they only look at it once every other full moon.

So if you MUST go out and buy your hubby/mother/friend a Frobble Gleamer this year, do yourself a favor. Pre-load it with the best photos you can afford from a professional photo service. So your backyard looks more like Hawaii, but who cares? Are those your legs or Julia Robert's legs? If you can't see a face, tell everyone they're yours!!!

Then stick a paperclip into the USB port and gently break something. Ta Da. No uploads of the worst photos anyone's ever taken of you and no wiping those gorgeous National Geographic shots. Everybody's happy.

Of course, you can avoid this issue in the first place by staying away from Frobble Gleamers this year - and every year to come. Don't fall for the hype. These digital things can be expensive and Lord knows what next year will bring. There's nothing wrong with a gorgeous silk scarf. Or a hug and a smile and a plate of home-baked cookies.

Your Frobbles are perfect just as they are. And if you fall victim to the ad campaign, remember might have to move your Veg-O-Matic aside to make room for it. Do you even know what else is in that cabinet? Are you brave enough to go find out?

I'm not. I'm going to bake cookies!!!
