Sit your arse down and walk

How many times have you thought to yourself, “My, I really want to go for a walk, but that involves standing up. I wish I could just walk without having to get off the couch.” Well, here’s the product for you. Now you can get all of the exercise involved with moving your legs while keeping your bum firmly planted in a seat. It’s a miracle product!

Of course, you might want to heed some of the comments from unsatisfied buyers before you shell out the dough: “There is no resistance to the exercise; you might as well tap your feet.”, “It is about the size of a 6-inch sub.”, and “It is a piece of junk not even worth the postage to send it back.”

Three cheers for cheap plastic that keeps you from having to move! Hip-hip-hooray! Hip-hip-hooray! Hip-hip-hooray!

(Just to make it clear to any future Ping visitors that think I don’t realize this is a helpful type of product for people who can’t get off of the couch: I do. I’m just having some fun here, so relax.)

Why don't they just make one of those baby walkers for adults? Re-enforce the bottom (a simple piece of thin fabric ain't gonna cut it.), add a beer can holder and a place for the remote control and BAM!. It's the perfect Christmas Item.

Ladies, now THERE'S the perfect item for that uncontrollable man in your life!

If you want to sit and walk you'd probably be better hoofing around in a wheelchair.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
