So I was signing up for a coupon site the other day, in hopes of finding some formula coupons. No, I’m not pregnant, and my three-year-old isn’t going to start drinking formula now. Let’s just call it a work experiment. This coupon site had some really bizarre questions on it, and they had to be answered before you could see any actual coupons. The first thing that struck me as odd about this site was that, no matter how many times I clicked that I wanted coupons and deals for baby products, it kept giving me links for Hormel meat products. Does anyone else see the connection? Am I missing something here?
However, the Hormel thing wasn’t the weirdest. I’m reading along, answering bizarre question after bizarre question, until I get to THE question. The one that takes the cake. The one that made me pause to wonder whether this particular survey writing company has any proofreaders, or whether the proofreaders are smoking crack. Read along with me. Let me know if I’m the only one who thinks this is the weirdest freaking question ever.
As the holidays approach, which of the following worries you the most:
a) eating healthy
b) credit card debt
c) removing unpleasant cellulite
Huh? Are there really that many people who take time as holidays approach to dwell on cellulite? First, why the holiday connection? If one were terribly concerned about cellulite, wouldn’t it be a year-round thing? Is there some strange obsessive disorder that causes holiday cellulite panic? All I want for Christmas is some anti-cellulite cream? Jingle Bells No More Jiggle Lotion? Festive Hannukah Anti-Cellulite Eight-Night Gift Set? (Guys, if you’re reading this, let it be said right now that actually buying anti-cellulite cream for your sweetie at any time would be a very bad, even horrendous, idea and I’m definitely not advocating the practice. So don’t blame me if you try it and end up with an anti-cellulite-cream-bottle-shaped indention in your head.)
Second, unless you live in a tropical clime, which I do not, as the holidays approach, your cellulite is happily ensconced in a triple layer of winter warm clothing. No one can even see it under your corduroys! And I suppose if they can you probably need more than a discount coupon site cream to handle the job. I’m still not sure what the link is between the holiday season and removing unpleasant cellulite, but I’m guessing that, if this coupon company has its say, it will somehow involve Hormel meat products.
Happy holidays, folks. And please, don’t spend your holiday season worrying about your unpleasant cellulite.
