No, it was not someone's idea of a bad joke. I actually told my girlfriend I wanted a Shake Weight. I have been dropping a few pounds and wanted something to help me burn a few extra calories when I am around the house.

I have used it twice so far, and it actually works. It also works good as a paperweight in between uses. LOL I have to say I am impressed and will spend six, yes six minutes with it tonight.  That's all you need to use it for to get a complete workout. It burns after about the third minute. Hey, all I know is the weight keeps coming off . Now I just have to get a "Shamwow" and a Snuggie to complete the "As Seen On TV" trifecta. Haha!
