Obamarator: Something Interesting For the Blog
A cryptic email leads to the discovery of what appears to be some sort of Barack Obama themed sex toy. A typically day in the life of a blogger.
So, I get an unsolicited email from a representative of something called rightbrainpromo.com with the following inquiry:
If I would like to mail something to Outside the Beltway, what would the best address?
Sensing something odd about the lack of specificity, I reply:
It’d depend what you were mailing!
We just launched a new product and would like to send it your way.
Check it out at the link below:
So, I dutifully check it out at the link above and discover that:
- The Obamarator is approximately 8.5″ tall x 1.5″ in diameter. Who says size doesn’t matter?
- Multi-Speed Stimulation. From Conservative to Extreme Liberal, the Obamarator is an equal opportunity stimulator.
- Splash Proof Design. In the office or in the shower, the Obamarator never stops stimulating for you!
- Hygienic Phthalate-Free Body-Safe Materials. Gentle enough for even those most intimate of places.
- Non-toxic paints and materials. Always practice safe personal stimulation.
- Requires 2 AA Batteries (not included). Kind of like taxes…you have to pay to play.
- Comes packaged in a specially designed gift box with clear window. No hidden agenda here.
And the thing retails for $29.99. Plus, I’m guessing, shipping. (You have to fill out a long form to order.) Still, while the generosity was appreciated, I couldn’t figure out what I’d do with this thing. And, frankly, didn’t want to spend too long contemplating it. So, I replied,
I don’t think I have a use for one of those.
And they respond:
Thought it might be interesting for the blog…
To which I reply:
Not so much.
But, upon reflection, I decided they were right! But I still don’t have any use for the actual product.
