Absurd Pregnancy Test Commercial
My wife laughs when she sees the following TV commercial for the most absurd piece of technology you could ever pee on: the Clearblue Digital Pregnancy Test.
Don’t buy a pee stick test that uses batteries. It won’t be a keepsake because the “pregnant” reading disappears when the battery dies (and spent batteries are also an environmental issue). I cracked an EPT battery-powered stick open to see that it contained the same chemical-based ink color test that regular sticks give you.
The perk of seeing the word “pregnant” just isn’t worth the expense in my opinion. Why did I buy an EPT stick then? I didn’t realize the damn thing used batteries. If they can make lines appear in color using chemicals, can’t they make words appear? Bah. In our area, Dollar Tree stores sell two generic chemical sticks for a dollar, and they work.
