*See Footnote (In Case You Need Clarification)

I was thumbing through the August issue of Redbook today and I came across an advertisement for SLIMQUICK™ cleanse. Notice the asterisk following the word After. If you require further explanation, please read the accompanying reference.

*Dramatization. The cartoon shown used SLIMQUICK™ cleanse for 7 days to jump start her weight loss program, then continued to lose weight by adding other SLIMQUICK™ products to her diet and exercise routine. Results not typical. Cartoons lose weight easily. Real people require regular exercise and a reduced-calorie diet to lose weight.

No shit. Well, there IS shit, because the stuff cleans your colon, but what I'm saying is, how do you think this happened?!


FYI - I turned the page and on the back of the SLIMQUICK™ ad was an ad for this:

I don't know about you all, but Taco Bell and SLIMQUICK™ cleanse, would pretty much result in the same end product for me.

Seems like the same result for me. And I bet Taco Bell tastes a little better.

Oh yeah, no kidding!!!

Not sure I want to put either of those things inside my body.

"Cartoons lose weight quickly" Ahahahahaha!!! LOL!

Laura said...

Yep...same here...wonder which one is cheaper?!?!?!?

I sometimes wish I was a cartoon, and could loose eweight fast!

Tricia said...

Oh yea, the same results here too!!

Tricia said...

And, may I just add ... damn those cartoons for making it look so easy.

I would tend to agree with your opinion, there. I once checked myself into the ER thinking I had appendicitis, but it was only Taco Bell.

kristi said...

Yep, Taco Bell does it everytime!

You are so dang funny! This post is exactly why I love you (in a totally heterosexual way, of course)!

Taco Bell is under-selling itself!

You're too funny.

HAHA. As someone who ate that very thing for dinner last night, I can assure you that it does perform the same function as Slimquick cleanse, and tastes better going down. :)
