Fame or Shame Game #10: Morning Chicness Bags
Update: This game has concluded. The winner was announced here.
The prize: Up for grabs this time is one copy of the Rookie Mom’s Handbook. Inside you’ll find 250 activities for new moms. Thank you to the kind person who recently gifted the book to my family, but I’m sorry, I’m so sorry. I kind of, sort of, already received a review copy, and, umm, reviewed it. Good book.
Your challenge: Tell us why the inventor of the following product is destined for fame, or shame.
“Morning Chicness Bags are compact, disposable, affordable, and yet stylish vomit bags. Now you can carry a chic morning sickness bag everywhere you go. You no longer have to use airsickness bags from the airplane, plastic shopping bags or garbage bags. You can stop searching for the nearest toilet bowl everywhere you go, and no more sticking your head in a disgusting, smelly garbage can!”
Oh how I wish I crafted those words, but it’s a direct quote from the product’s website.
The bags come in various colorful designs: Lavender Lulu, Tickled Pink, Baby Bubbles, Bambooboo, Labor of Love and Rosebuddies. They are made from bleached Kraft paper with a polyethylene lining to prevent leakage.
Buy them in packs of 10, 20, 50 or 100 ($7.50, $12.95, $27.50 or $45).
Hyperemesis Gravidarum is a combination of Greek and Latin that translates to: “excessive vomiting of pregnant women.” Well, you learn something new every day, huh?
Game Deadline: I will arbitrarily select one funny or thoughtful submission to be designated the Grand Exalted Winner of All Time for Game #10 (GEWoATfG10 for short) to win the prize.Â The game is open to anyone anywhere in the world so long as you give me your mailing address within a week of my notifying you by e-mail that you won. The deadline for submissions is whenever I grow weary… as soon as tomorrow or as long as next week. How’s that for specific?
Using the comment form below, tell us dear Thinga-readers, is this inventor destined for fame or shame and why? Enter as often as you can stomach. If you like, begin your comment with “Fame because…” or “Shame because…”
