The Impulsive Buy Turns Six!!!

Today is The Impulsive Buy’s sixth birthday.

I thought about shutting down TIB forever today because ending it on 8/9/10 at 11:12 am seemed pretty cool. But it shall live on since I just spent a few hundred dollars to renew TIB’s hosting fees for another two years. It shall also live on because even though I’ve written over 700 reviews, I still enjoy eating stuff I shouldn’t and then writing about it.

Each review I’ve created is like one of my illegitimate children. The companies provide the products and I fertilize it with my creativitity and ability to put words together. Soon after that happens, a new review is brought out into the world. Just like the illegitimate children of NBA players, the reviews I’ve written are all a little different, but you can tell who the father is. Yes, I’ve knocked up my fair share of companies over the years, and I’ll keep doing it as long as they’re willing to put out…products.

Or until I die from their products.

Thankfully, over the past few years it hasn’t been just me knocking up companies and spawning illegitimate reviews. TIB has had a number of wonderful reviewers contributing their thoughts on products that I either couldn’t get my hands on or was too scared to try. So I’d like to thank former and current reviewers Ace, Reprobate, Kayla, Stacey and Kelley for helping TIB become what it is today.

Finally, I would like to thank all of you — the readers of this quasi-product review blog.

Without you folks, TIB wouldn’t be where it’s at today, which I’m sure is somewhere towards the bottom of the Top 1,000,000 websites on the internet list. We’re way below YouTube and any porn website, but I’m pretty sure we’re slightly ahead of a Tumblr page that shows nothing but pictures of turtle asses. I truly appreciate you taking the time to stop by this small parcel of the World Wide Web to read product reviews that contain either profanity, fart jokes, slightly obscure geeky references, sexual innuendo, celebrity drug use/alcoholism/promiscuity references or a Brach’s pick-a-mix of any of the things I just listed.

Once again, thank you for reading The Impulsive Buy

  1. Congrats~ I hope you have 6 more to come! 🙂 Your reviews are always so entertaining, while at the same time straight up and informative!

  2. Wow, six years? Congratulations.

    P.S. What’s with the new curtains you put up? It’s making it harder for me to see into your bedroom window. Seriously, I hope one of those mystery boxes has a new set of binoculars.

  3. Happy Birthday, blog of Big Boy…so very happy that I stumbled somehow upon this site lo, those many years ago…at least 3, anyhow.

  4. Happy b day impulsive buy! My first article i read here was Burger kings steak house burger! The one with the mash potatoes on it

  5. I just stumbled on to this site (and yes, my toe is throbbing) after seeing the review for Jello Temptations Mousse Cups, which, while high-larious, were not in line with my thoughts at all. However, more important to me than accuracy is a good laugh, and after perusing this site for way too long, when I should have been mixing my husband’s martini while barefoot and pregnant, I’ve decided to make you a part of my bookmarks (it was right of you to gasp). So thank you and pick me as your damn winner so I can start tasting something besides meat and potatoes.

  6. Happy birthday TIB! If I remember right, I found this blog when I was trying to find a review of the new mini buffalo chicken sandwiches at Jack in the Box way back whenever they first came out. I ended up on your review, and I’m glad I did. I’ve kept up with your blog ever since…and also your tweets on twitter. Amusing stuff, but also very informative.

    Keep up the weird and awesome work. 😛

  7. First off, congrats on 6 years of awesome. Second, I find it kind of disturbing saying “whatever you like big boy” to a six year old. I feel like I’m being set up and any second now Chris Hanson will come out of the kitchen and ask me what I’m doing here. Now send me crap!

  8. Happy Birthday TIB! I love reading about the sometimes crazy products and the ones that look oh so yummy but are really probably crap.

  9. Whatever you like, Big Boy!

    Congratulations on the anniversary and keep up the great work, Marvo!

  10. Your blog rocks. I personally have been reading it for a couple of years now. For the past couple I have had organic batter blaster for breakfast all because of you. Thanks for entertaining me on a regular basic and enightening to bunch of goofy ass products! I am still on the fence when it comes to taqueria tacos from taco hell……
