only in Japan

I have searched and searched and can't find a link for you anywhere but I swear, swear up and down and spit in my eye if I ever tell a lie, that I saw an infomercial on tv for a diet pill (nothing unusual there) that was miraculous (aren't they all?) would turn the fat you eat into gas (doesn't sound terribly sociable but, hey) and...

wait for it....

put your coffee down to protect your keyboard,

ready?

...

you can crumble up and share with your dog.

Your dog.

They seriously had a plump owner holding her equally plumpish dog and saying 'oomph, you're heavy. Shall we go on a diet?'

And footage of her crushing the pill into pooch's food then using a measuring tape and scales to check on pooch's diet progress...

I'm not sure what's more unbelievable to me- that you would use diet pills on your dog or that there's a diet pill that you can share with your dog....

I haven't had an only in Japan moment for a while but that sure was one!

I hope anyway...

LOL! That's freaking hilarious! I'll be on the lookout for that commercial now that you mention it.

PS, you know...I think I'd much prefer have a good smelling larger friend versus a skinny one farting around me all the time. Plus the dog as well. @_@ Definitely would have to limit the visits that's for sure. Ha ha ha. ; )

Thanks for always making me smile and laugh! : )

I still can't find a link and it's killing me as it was such an incredible ad! Oh well.

And Gina me too for sure- I'll take a plump friend over a gassy one (with a gassy dog!) any day!!
