Shake What Your Mama Gave You

I've been trying to be mature about this, I really have. But based on my track record with HSN's infamous Banana Bunker, maturity doesn't appear to be my strong suit.

Honestly, I don't know how those QVC hosts manage to get through those Shake Weight presentations with a straight face. And exactly what sort of expert do you need to be to be the official Shake Weight vendor rep?

Phew ...  I managed to get through that whole post without making a single cheap, sophomoric comment! Notice that I did not make any snarky remarks about giving them a hand, or that their doing a good job. I didn't go there. Because, clearly, that would have been immature. It was hard, but I rose to the occasion.


  1. They had the shake weight on QVC earlier this week and Pat carried it all over the set with her. Then Dan came out and demonstrated it, too. After the SNL skit, I'll never be able to look at it the same way.
    I was at the HSN outlet a few months ago and my sister bought the "banana bunker". I hadn't seen it, but then when we were checking out, the male cashier had to open it to confirm what was in the box. My eyes almost popped out of my head and all the other customers in line had a good laugh over that one. But, my sister loves bananas and said she'd been looking for something to take them to work in so they wouldn't get mushed -- and not too many plastic containers fit bananas well. I got a good laugh out of your post!

  2. Anyone see the SNL parody of the Shake Weight? I would love to see Patti, Lisa R., and Shawn doing a re-make of that skit.

    I need to buy a banana bunker.
