It’s kinda strange how old SDMB threads can end up tying together into a neat little package. Add:
…And come up with a magazine that was hand delivered to my desk today called Living XL.
Seeing that you never know what kind of mailing lists you’ll end up on, I guess it serves me right having internet purchases sent to my business address. Not only was a new copy of Living XL hand delivered (as opposed to being thrown into my inbox), it was the main shop talk topic all day. I had no idea there were so many (hmmm, I do I phrase this inoffensively) “unique” products designed for the XL crowd. Left-handed scissors I understand. It’s just some of these (over-priced & oversized) items definitely fall into the stranger-than-fiction category…[ul][li]A $90 Automatic Golf Tee & Ball Setter: Eliminating the need to bend down to tee up[/li][li]A $13 Sock Aid: Only available in white - so keep those feet clean[/li][li]A $270 Bathroom Scale: With a 1,000# capacity[/li][li]A $55 Curved Shower Rod: To virtually eliminate curtain creep[/li][li]A $10 Leg Lifter Strap: To get those tired hooves off the floor and into the bed[/li][li]A $20 Hangerzilla Brand Clothes Hanger: With the 100# capacity. I guess it’s main purpose is to hang up a size XXXXXL leather jacket that’s accidentally dropped in the ocean[/ul]It’s just a matter of time Madison Ave. gets wind of these products, and puts together a “joining a gym, priceless” Mastercard commercial.[/li]
Stupid, pampered Americans.
