    ShamWow

    Okay Okay, I see this commercial of this smuck selling the ShamWow probably once a night.

    Besides the guy looking/acting like a D-Bag,

    Has anyone bought this, does it work, do you like it?

    I have seen a few reviews online but usually those are the people that are pissed at the world.
    Somebody Please, what the hell is that smell?

    The views, opinions, stupid off the cuff comments, mouthy, obnoxious, thoughtless, etc etc etc are not always or even some of the time the belief of my department, so bugger off!

    I have been tempted to try it forever...............just haven't yet. It looks like it works fairly well, but I too have not heard from anyone who has it either.

    Seems like a good product but I would never buy it due to the idiot they have representing it on television. He is better than Billy Mays, however. Does that guy really have to yell everything he says?!

    Speaking of Billy Mays, I've got some of those Zorbiez that he pushes. No, I did NOT buy them....

    Anyway, those things are about as useful as tits on a boar. I can't imagine the shamwow is much better

    I have them, and they work fairly well. I wouldn't say they are anything spectacular, but they do their job.


    The part I love is that all of their testimonials of people who have supposedly used them and loved them, are filmed right next to the tent where the people JUST bought them. Maybe they think we aren't smart enough to figure out that someone who just bought something can't give a valid opinion on the product.

    I have always avoided buying anything that had the word Amazing, Mighty, Wow, Wham, Bang, Bamm, Bad Ass Motherfucker or what have you in the products name.
    Stuff like that never lives up to its promises, and in most cases probably caused rare forms of cancer in lab animals.

    I bought mine at a car show, mainly because I needed a new car towel and you got 4 for $10. They are better than terry cloth IMO


    Also, if they had a product called "Bad Ass Motherfucking Towels", I would buy them just for shits and grins

    I was going to get that for my dad for xmas, but decided to get him a big bag of shop rags instead (plus a bunch of other stuff of course). I'm sure he would trash the shamwow with greese and other stuff.

    I take that back... I bought some "Bad Ass Coffee" once. It wasn't that bad.

    I have some of those things - they work just ok as a chamois.

    I use them to apply metal polish though, and they are real good at that.

    I have always avoided buying anything that had the word "sham" in it, just in case there was truth in advertising.

    I actually have no idea what you're talking about. I haven't even googled it yet. I just saw the "sham" in the title and decided that I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make a funny pun!
