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

    Congrats on riding a two-wheeler and shunning unicorns.

  3. My birthday is the day entries close, I’m turning the big 3-3 on the 15th. Winning an awesome prize would make it that much more special. C’mon Nair for Men!

  4. Marvo –

    Congrats on 6 years of surviving the gadawful stuff you have consumed for our mutual entertainment! I take great pride in knowing though my extensive social network I have increased your readership by at least 5 (myself included). Keep up the good work!


  5. Happy birthday! As a recent-reader, I have triple the delight as I read new posts AND browse through the archive! Keep it up!

  6. Thanks for offering this giveaway. Crossing my fingers that I’ll win. I’ve found some of your blog entries so funny I’ve laughed so hard I’d pee in my pants. Sorry if that was inappropriate, but you said to write “whatever you like.”

  7. Happy Birthday!
    I bet those prize boxes contain nothing but that gross black toothpaste from some Asian country. Or left over body wash. Half-finished frozen meals. How awful. Yay for junk in mystery boxes!

  8. Happy Birthday Marvo and Team. Here’s to 6 more years. I’d love to receive a box.

    Pros: Marvo and team
    Cons: Using the word ‘box’ without incorporating a sexual innuendo.

  9. Happy birthday, TIB! Thanks for showing us what those products are really like ๐Ÿ˜› (and for saving me from many health-related problems).

  10. If a double decker bus crashes into us/To die reading Impulsive Buy would be a heavenly way to die~~~
