    Parents BE AWARE of the advertisement on page 58 of the March Issue of Ohio Game and Fish. Seems they find it fitting to put trash in fishing magazines where alot of our youth are exposed to it.

    Well what is it, trojan rubbers or something, smokes, booze???
     

  3. Although I agree that that article has no business in a fishin/huntin magazine,

    I don't see what the big deal is. they gettin exposed to alot more stuff thats alot worst than just that everyday.
     
  4. It's just a a male enhancement add. See dozens of commercials on tv for them everyday

    The Enzyte founder and his mother was just found guilty earlier this month here in Cincinnati. ;)
    But you have to admit, that "Smilin Bob" character was hilarious...! :D

    Smilin Bob is funny, what kills me is how many dumb guys are really buying that stuff, telling from the amount of advertising that they can afford in web, print and TV, ALOT of dumb guys out there, either that are guys wives or girlfriends are fallling for that stuff. unbelievable what people will believe if they see it or hear it, monkey's are smarter.

    i'm not sure of all the details,but think it included false advertisement.i heard about the case last year and i think they pulled commercials temporarily then,but they have resumed.

    I also recall people cancelling their orders and the Enzyte people would continue to illegally charge their credit cards for months or longer. Didn't see that part in the article that Het provided. Another company did the same thing with a womens supplement, a supplement that was alleged to stimulate the woman's libido..... It too was proved to be false.
     
  9. I know that the inventors of "Airborne" the immune system booster for flying people got busted here recently. Had to pay $23million out
     
  10. This is bad news. I liked their advertising angle (big shoes in a bowling alley, wood workers, etc). I was waiting for the fishing related commercial - lots of opportunities: rods, worms, crankbaits...

    The biggest charge was Fraud and as Snake69 said, they would bill your credit card even after you informed them to stop the charges. All there advertising claims were the result of brainstorming sessions while sipping wine. Absolutely no scientific proof to back their products...all advertising...!
    Now this is the really funny part...after my original post, I ran an errand only to come back home to check out the NCAA games. I switched to the ODC during one of the commercials and guess who shows up...?
    If you guessed, "Smilin Bob" you're correct...he lives on...! :eek: :D

    Darwin If your gonna be a bear..

    At least with "Smiling Bob" you get a good laugh out of the commercials.

    Is it just me or does anybody else find the Viagra commercials very odd and uncomfortable to watch? I know this stuff helps out a lot of people but....
    I am not aware of any group or groups of men that sit around and sing to each other about....Well I have to remember this is a kid friendly site.:D

    Right, right...! I always considered the "Smilin Bob" commercials as "B" rated because they're so corny. Now the Viagra and the others are so much more creative...almost genius...! :D
    The one in particular that has been running where the fellow is replacing a kitcken faucet is brillant. :eek: That one is so subtle but it just jumps right out at you at the same time...! :D
     
  15. ....and here's your sign -
    "If your erection lasts longer than 12 hours, you should see a doctor."
    Bet Bob wouldn't be a smilin' then.
     
  16. I'm coming out with a pill to help you catch fish. It changes your natural body oder to that of a young spawning female bass.....so everytime you touch the water, your lure, line, or spit in the water you'll attract big burly male bass.

    The pill will come in quanities of 100. Take 3 per day to start changing your oder now. Costs 19.95 and I will send you the second month free. After that I will charge your CC account each month 2.99, shippin and handeling 17.99.

    If at any time your not happy with the results..........tough, your screwed!

    So hurry call today!
