What shamwow is not telling you

The sham wow is that super absorbent German engineered product that has funny infomercials. So sleep deprived as I was I decided to give it a try. Here are a few things that the sham wow did not do so well.

Diaper: It is supposed to be super absorbent so I put one on a two year old fed him 15 bananas, a bran muffin, and 4 fiber shakes. While it did absorb most of the final product it gave the kid a rash and now after several cleanings still smells.

Unusual cleanup: The sham wow completely failed to clean up all of the human blood I needed it to 8 quarts is a lot and the sham wow just doesn't have what it takes.

Blanket: To small

Sweat Band: It did surprisingly well as a sweat band except for the fact that after the work out when rung out it gives you everything back it absorbed and that's a lot of sweat to deal with.

Tampon: In a jam I guess it would do ok but don't expect to get all the blood out.

Wash Cloth: Who wants to pay 20 bucks for a wash cloth.

Pirate ship sail: It did not hold the wind very well, didn't have a skull on it, and is far to small to act as a sail. I will write the company.

Cape: The sham wow did stretch enough to tie around a neck but did not have the cape feel I was looking for.

Nuclear waste: Absorbent yes. Super mutant absorbent no.

Gas siphon: Tie 6 or so sham wow's together then use a wire hanger to force it into a gas tank and pull out ring out and walla! Free gas.

Except now my sham wow is rapidly degrading, smells like gas and poo, is pinkish stained, exhibit A in the trial, and is highly flammable. Not a great product folks.
