THE WEEK IN REVIEWS – 8/29/2009

Here are a few product reviews posted this week from other blogs we like.

Cheez-Its is getting fancy with its Pepper Jack version. That’s too high class for me. Velveeta Cheez-Its or Kraft Processed American Cheese Cheez-Its would be just right. (via Junk Food Betty)

Gigi gave the Pillsbury Savorings Artichoke & Spinach Bread Bowl Bites a 0 out of 10 rating. It looks like the Pillsbury Doughboy just dropped a deuce. (via Gigi Reviews)

If only the Frozen Food Master’s video review of the frozen White Castle Cheeseburgers had an Indian guy and Neil Patrick Harris, so that he could share it with them. (via Freezer Burns)

Remember those infomercials for a product called 30 Minute Abs? Remember the competing product called 15 Minute Abs? Remember 10 Minutes Abs? We’re seeing that same level of competition and bullshit with energy shots. First, it was five hours of energy. Then it was six hours. Now were up to 8-hour energy shots. 24-hour energy IV drip, here we come! (via Everyview)

@aplusk needs to convince every single one of his three million Twitter followers to watch his latest movie, because having a nude Anne Heche in it isn’t enough to do it. (via Pajiba)

    OK, that entry got me thinking about this dialogue from There’s Something About Mary, so now I am going to inflict it on everyone else:

    Hitchhiker: You heard of this thing, the 8-Minute Abs?
    Ted: Yeah, sure, 8-Minute Abs. Yeah, the excercise video.
    Hitchhiker: Yeah, this is going to blow that right out of the water. Listen to this: 7… Minute… Abs.
    Ted: Right. Yes. OK, all right. I see where you’re going.
    Hitchhiker: Think about it. You walk into a video store, you see 8-Minute Abs sittin’ there, there’s 7-Minute Abs right beside it. Which one are you gonna pick, man?
    Ted: I would go for the 7.
    Hitchhiker: Bingo, man, bingo. 7-Minute Abs. And we guarantee just as good a workout as the 8-minute folk.
    Ted: You guarantee it? That’s – how do you do that?
    Hitchhiker: If you’re not happy with the first 7 minutes, we’re gonna send you the extra minute free. You see? That’s it. That’s our motto. That’s where we’re comin’ from. That’s from “A” to “B”.
    Ted: That’s right. That’s – that’s good. That’s good. Unless, of course, somebody comes up with 6-Minute Abs. Then you’re in trouble, huh?
    [Hitchhiker convulses]
    Hitchhiker: No! No, no, not 6! I said 7. Nobody’s comin’ up with 6. Who works out in 6 minutes? You won’t even get your heart goin, not even a mouse on a wheel.
    Ted: That – good point.
    Hitchhiker: 7′s the key number here. Think about it. 7-Elevens. 7 dwarves. 7, man, that’s the number. 7 chipmunks twirlin’ on a branch, eatin’ lots of sunflowers on my uncle’s ranch. You know that old children’s tale from the sea. It’s like you’re dreamin’ about Gorgonzola cheese when it’s clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.
    Ted: Why?
    Hitchhiker: ‘Cause you’re fuckin’ fired!

    Hey what happend to the link +/- on the top of the other review sites?

  3. Marvo says:

    @Chuck: I think someone should make a 6 minutes abs, one minute for each ab in your six pack.

    @alek: Plus Minus hasn’t updated in a while, so I removed it.

  4. DJ says:

    But you must try the Parmesan Garlic Cheez-Its. They are sublime.

  5. Marvo says:

    @DJ: Maybe I shall.
