I Can't Escape It

For those of you who feel that $60 plus shipping and handling is entirely too much to spend on a blender, I'm right there with you.

For those of you like Ursa Minor, you will envy me when I tell you that I answered M's door this morning to find the FedEx man eagerly delivering the Magic Bullet, which was apparently M's with only three easy payments.

I'm going to want someone to prove to me exactly how this is different enough from any other blender to merit its high cost.

Also, I'm a little worried about the marketing team that came up with the name for this very expensive blender.

LOL the name made me think of other devices lol

Looking forward to your review after youve used it!

THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT TOO! I'm glad I'm not the only one!

UrsaMinor said...

Are you kidding me?! The answer is in the name. It's the MAGIC BULLET! Not only does it blend things, it solves all your problems. Seriously. Name a problem and I'll tell you how the Magic Bullet will solve it.

Cancer.

UrsaMinor said...

The Magic Bullet allows you to blend fresh fruits and vegetables into a healthful and delicious smoothie, full of antioxidants that help prevent and fight cancer. Ha!

OsoDelSol said...

But does it SOLVE cancer?

Definition of "solution" found on the prestigious dictionary.com:

7. Medicine/Medical.
a. the termination of a disease.

Does it do that, Ursa? Does it terminate cancer?

Also, I do not believe it can solve the problem of Lauren having chosen Jason over a Paris internship as posed in "The Hills." And that is a very grave problem indeed.

No, it probably can't solve the Lauren problem, but she can use it to make milkshakes when she gets depressed about the life she threw away for a scruffy boy and then she'll feel better.
