Bad Ideas

Tucking electronic gadgets into thick socks to protect them (a Good Housekeeping “Good Idea”). Right. I can just see some woman in a swanky restaurant wrangling her ringing cell phone out of a wool sock crammed in her evening bag.

Making a “bold move” and painting the house exterior black. Yep, it might have worked for one woman, but if the whole neighborhood does it...

Buying “The Good Fortune Charm Bracelet,” which will not only bring happiness, but wealth, for five monthly installments of $19 plus $6.50 for S&H. Or don’t buy the bracelet and be happy with the $101.50 in your pocket.

Using Jane Jetson (“Meet George Jetson....Jane, his wife...”) in an ad campaign for real beauty.

"I see a red door and I want to paint it black" was more of an existential statement, I agree.

Jane Jetson would only work if she were a real human being with actual flesh, a size 14, with a belly after having 4 kids. Then I might believe the soap works.

An idea isn't bad unless it fails. Singing fish on plaques or pet rocks or chia pets were all pretty abysmal ideas that, uh oh, made their drunken creators a squillion bucks! Love your bad ideas like they was good ones!
