“Forever Lazy” hit a nerve with me

Yesterday was Christmas Day, a perfect day to work on my book, Move Your Assets: From the Chair Not the Bank.

Also, a perfect day for the Forever Lazy infomercial.

How ironic was that? As I was writing about man-made hypokenetic diseases (diseases caused by too much sitting), I looked up at the TV to see a bunch of people zipped up in different color sacks lounging around and doing what I’m trying to get you not to do — that is, not to sit on your freakin' assets and baste in your own juices and in a corny old bunny suit! 

All that's missing is a tail and long, floppy ears! I kid you not, you must check this thing out for yourself.

And what a bargain: If you purchase one at $19.95, you get one free. 

So even if you are a size small, you may as well order the 2X as your freebie — because if you buy into the Forever Lazy catch phrase rather than the Move Your Assets one, I have no doubt that not only will you be needing that 2X in no time, but you will also be a potpourri of hypokenetic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. 

Don’t get me wrong, I think the concept of staying warm and cozy is awesome. Maybe the commercial could have shown folks pacing on the phone, walking and cleaning as well.

I refuse to believe that most of us want to be Forever Lazy. Maybe Forever Cozy or Forever Comfy wouldn’t sound so, uh, offensive and get me so fired up on such an important holiday! (But, then again, it doesn’t take much to fire me up when it comes to anti-asset moving!!)
