I'd Say Now I've Seen Everything, But I've Seen This One Before

From where else but Salon: "Mike Salvini is an evangelist for natural penis enlargement, a weird and scientifically unproven way of upsizing the male member. And thousands of men are going to great lengths to follow him." [Via Brutal Women.]

Reminds me of this guy:

Bob

Bob won't be smiling much longer, because Berkeley Premium Nutraceuticals, the makers of Enzyte, the herbal supplement for natural male enhancement, is under investigation from the feds for mail fraud. The investigation focuses on the company's "Auto Ship" program. Feds have received 4,300 complaints.

Oh d*mn! I always laughed my *ss off at those Encyte commercials! And that tune was so catchy...

I feel a little sorry for the guy who plays Smilin' Bob, though. He's so familiar he'll NEVER work in showbusiness without people pointing him out and going "It's the PENIS GUY!!"

As a pharmacist, I cannot believe that anyone would seriously think those things (penis and breast enlargement pills) would work for anything but a few laughs as a gag wedding gift.

I'm going to miss him, too, Denita. I loved those commercials. Poor Bob is going to go the way of Miss Cleo.

kohoutekdriver8, you just gave me a great idea for my husband's next birthday. He has the same sick sense of humor I have. ;)
