Bumpits Explained.


I mentioned Bumpits in my last post and got some questions.

I see that I must take it upon myself to educate some of my uninformed blogger buddies about this essential beauty product.





My friend who got me the Bumpits reported that she got them at the dollar store.

Humm...could it be the Bumpits craze is over and someone forgot to tell me?

The sold them at the Walgreens that my son works at. It was one of the most return 'as seen on tv' items that they had. It was right up there with the magic tweezers.

I laughed uncontrollably the first time I saw these advertised--literally, could not stop laughing. Then I learned of the existence of the Snooki, and now I can't think of the one without the other.

Except now I can think of you instead, wearing your elegant tiara, grading papers and muttering "oh oh oh," and I'll feel a bit better.

Seeing a picture of you in your Bumped and blinged glory might help my rehabilitation even more. Just sayin'.

I am jealous of folks with big happy hair.

Tabor said...

They are alive an well if Flo from the Progressive Insurance ads is any example.

When I first saw this, I thought it was for your bra. After all, they do give volume.

Linda said...

I had never heard of these until you mentioned them in your previous post. But, knowing the problems you have with your hair, I assumed they had something to do with that. Loved the video ad. Made me want to go out and buy some. :)

Baby Sister said...

Lol!! Well that explains the big hair everywhere...I always wondered how girls got it to stay. :)

annie said...

Well the commercial shows that they are essential to a happy life.
In NJ we call it Snooki hair.

Sush said...

LOL...maybe my tiara would stay in place better with a bumpit?
Betty you're the best!

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

Boycott American Women

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above)

3. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

4. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden contact

5. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

Not one single American woman has EVER condemned their fellow American women for committing these crimes against men. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Apparently, American women think it is okay to be a criminal, just as long as you are a woman. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

BRAND NEW: Buy the Boycott American Women book. After reading this book, I promise you that you will never even think about dating an American woman ever again, or else I will give you your money back. That’s right, if you are not convinced by my book, I will give you a full refund!

Another item that shows me I don't get out enough. Ha.

Laura Eno said...

Thank you for enlightening me. :) I think I'll pass though.

Sarah said...

I will check out our dollar store shortly!

Eva Gallant said...

So glad you cleared that up! I thought bumpits had something to do with stinky underarms.

Ms. A said...

I don't think I have enough hair to cover them up.

Madi and Mom said...

Well BB color me surprised. I had no clue what they were...now I do..but what do you do with them.
LOL

Ann said...

They have them at the dollar store here. Hmm maybe I should go buy some and I could have a new do for the holidays

Retired English Teacher said...

I wonder how they would work when hair is thinning so much that the head can barely be covered.

Now, if I can just figure out where to get some hair to cover my head...

jenny_o said...

I would say something about beehive hairdos and teasing hair within an inch of its life, which is what gals did in the 60's to get this look, but, uh, it might identify me as OLD or something...

Having a teenage daughter, I know all about bumpits. We have them in various sizes and have used them a LOT for dances--apparently you need big hair for dances.

But I'm sad to see they are at the dollar store--we paid something like $10 for our set. :(

Just another gadget/fad that I missed out on...
