Boogie Bass

The Boogie Bass has got to be one of the goofiest products I’ve ever seen. And not goofy like a dancing Coke can that can provide some mild entertainment, but goofy as in: spend $20 and get this junk that will hang like a piece of talking, singing crap on your wall.

Does anyone really see humor in a fish singing “Pretty Fishy” or passing gas? -ram

Ah, but did you see the commercial for this miracle product? It's a classic, for sure!

My parents and I were actually dumb enough to buy one. I thought it was slightly funny the first time I saw it, but now everytime that thing starts singing I get an urge to rip it off the wall and beat it with a hammer.

I'm glad this topic resurfaced, because when I stopped at Walgreens last week I saw it. No, not Billy the Bigmouth Bass. Larry the Loudmouth Lobster. It's the same awesome fun of Boogie Bass and Billy, but with a lobster! It's such a great idea, I have no idea why it wasn't done sooner.

Coincidentally, they hadn't sold one of 'em.

Well, just to let you all know, where I work (Pharmacy/Convience Store) We sell all the ripoffs, like the lobster, the duck, the shark, and the alligator (dont ask me to remeber the names.) anyway I doubt we sell any. Oddly enough, we still dont carry the actual boggie bass.

i think that the boogie bass is really funny and is good for a pirson that fishes alot and you are wrong that it is a piece of junk if it is a piece of junk then why did it make so much money

I've been proven wrong. Apparently, the Boogie Bass did will in the people-that-own-keyboards-without-commas, periods, question-marks, or SHIFT-keys demographic.

The Boogie Bass did Will? Disgusting!
