Great Inventions

I was working at home with the TV on mute the other day when I glanced up from my laptop and saw this:

I immediately rewound the Tivo and turned up the volume. Apparently there is a local news program called Twin Cities Live that has all the production values of... well... a local news program, and they were featuring some would-be inventors who were pitching their ideas to some well-known entrepreneur. The cohosts began by saying they were excited to see the inventions, as they had not been informed of what would be presented. Raw anticipation was in the air. And then right out of the gate, a woman holds up that recognizably-shaped device and starts talking about hoo-haws.

Yeah, it's for a hoo-haw. Specifically, it's an "Intra-Vaginal Cooling Device." It's for hot hoo-haws. The cohosts seemed uncomfortable.

Apparently you stick it in the freezer. And then if your hoo-haw ever gets too hot, you can stick it somewhere else. This was enough to make one host ask "Do you really want that thing in your freezer? Right next to the corn?" which made me wonder what type of disturbing freezer mix-up scenario he was imagining. I don't even want to get into the possible details of that. Let's just say it was a wholly inappropriate comment that did nothing to ease the tension.

I don't know if hot hoo-haws is a big problem, and I'm not judging the concept or the reaction of the host (after all, it's not their fault - someone probably should have warned them that they would be face to face with a vagina popsicle that day), I'm just saying: watching daytime TV is like a social experiment gone horribly wrong, which is kinda awesome.

Considering the situation ... to reuse your phrase, "a vagina popsicle" being topic for discussion in mixed company on television in the morning... I don't think there could be any comment deemed inappropriate (relatively speaking.) I would have had a hard (no pun intended) time coming (not there either) with something more fitting (pun intended there) to say.

Dang it! That's one of those things where you think to yourself... "hmmm, has my hoo ha ever been over heated?" Now that's all I'm going to think about!!!! And then I'm going to need one of those stupid hoo ha coolers!. Damnit Dan, why why why?
