Chubbies, Nad Shots and Pulling Hitler's Finger: The Daily Nooner!
Awesome Video Of The Day The Anti-Gym I'm not sure why a gym with a commercial like this would call itself the "Anti-Gym." I always thought gyms were SUPPOSED to convince people that nobody will love them if they're fat. What makes this one so special? I mean, I understand that it probably isn't standard practice for a personal trainer to burst into your home, break your refrigerator and smear a plateful of chocolate cake all over your favorite purple shirt, but does that really make this an "Anti-Gym"? Sounds like a "Regular Gym" that's staffed by sociopaths. According to its website, The Anti-Gym is "Denver’s only health and vanity lifestyle boutique," which is slightly more impressive than being the #1 sushi bar in Fargo, North Dakota. They consider themselves "a revolutionary alternative to ineffective and obsolete health clubs, personal trainers, and crash diets." Finally there's a gym that will verbally abuse me until I'm so full of self-loathing that I need to either get on the treadmill or blow my brains out! Someone came up with a system that ACTUALLY WORKS! Say what you will about this commercial, but you have to admit it: When it comes to using a foghorn for comedic effect, this pretty much sets the gold standard.
With the advent of cheap, easy-to-use web publishing software, anyone with an internet connection and something to say can reach millions of people with the click of a mouse. That's great in theory, but the unfortuante truth of the matter is that the whole something-to-say part is often little more than a fleeting afterthought. The result? Millions of ill-conceived, pointless blogs clogging up my internets. There's no way I could ever hope to give them all the attention they (don't) deserve, but that's not my goal here. Instead, I'd like to simply shine a spotlight on a few particularly stupid ones that I've stumbled across. Feel free to add your own finds in the comments below.
