But there's FLOAM!!!

A few weeks ago, Bainwen and I were watching TV late one night, and a commercial for Floam came on. We were both slightly delirious from sleep deprivation, so the commerical became quite hilarious.

Floam! Magical stuff!

What happens if badgers get their paws on Floam? Would there be a mecha-badger result that would eat Cleveland?

Floam! Wondrous stuff!

Is Floam needed to keep the Soviets in check? I mean, I know that the Russkies aren't pointing nukes at us, but the concept of Floam delivered by the nearest ICBM scares me more than 110 megatons of Pu-239.

Floam, folks. For your family's safety, keep away from badgers.

There was Floam on sale at Wal-Mart! It's true! All different colors!

Any badger could just walk into Wal-Mart and buy Floam for $6.97. I ask you, what is this world coming to?

Dont' laugh, my granddaughter got some for Christmas and it is pretty cool. You can make lots of things with it.....but to really enjoy it I think you have to be under 12 years old!

Oh, no, I absolutely want some Floam! One of the ladies from my church mentioned it in conversation about her grandkids, and I said that I had seen the commercial for it and it looked so cool, but I had absolutely no excuse to buy it. I think I need to borrow someone's kid for awhile. :-)

WTF with the Floam! My coworker ordered some on line for her daughter for Christmas, paid like $8 extra for express shipping and I dont know if she ever did get it ... Can Floam be THAT GOOD that there's a SHORTAGE?

Boy, she'll be mad that she could have just bought it at Wal-Mart ...

Maybe I should stockpile some ... (eyes darting about in panic)

Oh, well, the tubs at Wal-Mart weren't as big as the ones on TV. And the colors didn't look as bright, like maybe it was old, tired Floam.

But if you start stockpiling Floam, you'll have to watch out for UN Weapons Inspectors coming to your house. And do you really want that?

Well, if you really want to, you can borrow my kid for an afternoon of Floaming. I'm sure we'd all get a kick out of it.

But wouldn't the badgers have a hard time getting it out from between their claws?

An afternoon of Floaming... I may just be exhausted, but that's some funny stuff right there. :-)
