At 5:45 a.m., I watched, glued to the screen, as Joe Terrell shot his office mates. He had a clip of twenty-five, and he emptied it, shooting down the hall over and over, peppering co-workers, littering the floor with spent ammo. He’d reload and go at it again.
His weapon? A Mini-Marshmallow Shooter. It was great!
Joe tests products for KLTV in their “Does It Work?” segment. Over time, I’ve watched him try Clorox Bleach Pens and Carpet Skates, Snuggies and Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush–anything and everything from the Atari Flashback 2 to the Zero Gravity Car. He always looks like he’s having a great time.
I want his job, or at least his marshmallow shooter. I’d use it to pelt my computer every time it frustrated me–assuming I could afford that many marshmallows.
Can you imagine all the wonderful products you could test for free if you had a TV segment? Believe me, I wouldn’t limit myself to First Alert Alarms and Pet Nail Clippers–no siree, Bob! I’d be testing the claims that Hot Springs, Arkansas makes about their healing waters or Florida makes about their sunshine. Does what happen in Vegas really stay in Vegas? (Okay, I may not try that one–I’d never do anything in Vegas that I couldn’t do anywhere else).
I’d be testing the luxury cars to see which really were luxurious–and safe, and fast.
Are Prada shoes really the best? Does Rolex run better than Timex?
Which spa offers true relaxation? What cruise line provides the best in destination, food and entertainment? Is a play on Broadway better than the same one in a community theater? Really–inquiring minds want to know!
Yep, I want Joe’s job. Ah, the possibilities.
