    why would you want to use a sick with toilet paper on it to wipe your butt thats just dumb
  • Slick_richie
    fat people who cant reach?

    And for people with stiff joints who can't bend their arms/wrists properly. I've had gout attacks that pretty much rendered my right arm useless.

    I bought one of these from a mail order catalog. It sucked. The stick wouldn't hold the paper worth shit (pardon the pun). And when I could get it to grip, it wouldn't let go (so much for not having to touch it). You'd be better off with a sponge on a stick.

    It's for obese/elderly people. My grandmother used one.

    Using a young thin woman to advertise it was stupid though.
  • ArtJDM
    Maybe it's for people with big boobs so they don't fall off of the toilet.

    Oh god....is this really how far we've come in a society?

    Just.....its not the way people act to each other or who throw away their moral behavior that makes me lose faith in humanity now....its this. This product. Really...


    Invention-wise I think we've reached the bottom of the barrel here. :(

    This is dumb ...you know that stick will probably smell bad and have so much ...ewwww
  • blackmaniac
    I'd rather use a bidet to clean my anus after dropping a deuce than whip out a contrived plastic stick that I can clip toilet paper onto. And what if I slip and get feces smeared onto the plastic stick? I'd have to clean that thing.
    If anything, this product makes finishing up your business more complicated than it needs to be. After you're done instead of grabbing the TP and proceed to wipe, you'd first have to reach for the comfort wipe, then fold the paper, clip it onto the comfort wipe and try to reach your anus with it. Also I don't know how your toilet is built, but I imagine I'd have to lean forward so that I won't hit the water tank while using it. And what if one wipe isn't enough to clean your behind? Attach a new piece of paper to it. Ain't nobody got time for dat.

    Also what are the advantages of beeing fat again? All I can think of is increased boyancy, but nobody will get fat just to stay afloat in water.

    Actually slightly overweight people live longer then 'healthy' people. Having some extra body fat gives you 'energy reserves' when you're sick.
  • lunarotaku

    The key word is 'slightly.' Dude in the commercial was not 'slightly.'
  • Vismutti

    I've heard about that too. A little extra weight also apparently lowers your stress level. But this is for people so big that they can't reach their own arse. I'm plenty overweight, more than slightly anyway, and even I can still reach.

    @blackmaniac: Some people do have illnesses that make them morbidly obese, it's not always just laziness or lack of caring. Definitely not about the advantages of being fat.

  • Rattrap007  - Yeeeeaaaahh...

    This is ass-inine. Look I myself am a big guy. But I am not so big I can't wipe my own ass. This is nuts. I can see it for a few people, but trying to sell it to the masses is idiotic.
  • Renaissance Nerd
    Again, to be fair, this is an item that would actually be really useful for elderly or disabled people. As gross as it might seem to wipe yourself with a stick, imagine how gross it would be to have to have someone do it for you. So I'm kind of all for anything that would help someone be more independent--although wiping one's ass will never not be funny on some level.

    My mum mentioned the same thing to me after we watched this video, about disabled and not-so-flexible or mobile people. But for a young, able bodied person, it's just unnecessary. I don't bunch up my toilet paper when I wipe and yah know what I do after I wipe....

    I WASH MY HANDS! XD

    What a revelation.
  • DMaster
    OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG, WHO THE F*(& IN @#$*% COMES UP WITH THIS GARBAGE?!?
  • Smyku
    After the feet cleaning device I was a bit afraid that Mike would try this thing out.
  • Malidictus
    Wait, Mike, what happened to buying the products and using them on camera? Surely that's much informative.
  • snthss
    I don't get it. Do you shove this between your legs until you reach your anus and move it back and forward while still sitting on the toilet? Or do you stand up for it? And doesn't the whole process just spread the.. stuff? Also doesn't it require more strenght to use than just wiping your butt normally? I really don't think this would be of any help for old or disabled people...
  • Chieftac
    And they don't even show how it really works?? That's stupid!!
  • jesper  - This is horrible
    I mean, there is a reason we wash our hands after we go to the toilet (alright, I know a lot of disgusting people don't, but that's beside the point). The only thing this stick brings is that you have to wash something else ass well (bad pun intended).

    For disabled people maybe, but washing your hands or washing this stick.... and then what do you wash the stick with.... a cloth that then needs to be washed.... or your hands and then it's just as 'disgusting' as shitting is currently.

    I'm just sad Mike didn't demo this product....

    Why the hell does this product exist?
  • Blackdrazon
    As I understand it, the Romans used to wipe their asses with a sponge at the end of a stick, so this isn't even new.

    While I can definitely get the angle of selling this product to people that can't wipe with their hands for whatever reason, like Jesper said above, they shouldn't be advertising this as more sanitary. The only reason it was more sanitary for the Romans was because the sponge wasn't disposable like TP and they probably didn't want to touch it!
  • TimX7
    World's dumbest did it! World's Dumbest did it!
  • Goobian
    This would obviously help a disabled person, but that solution was invented before this product. I know people that are very overweight have issues wiping and use something similar.
  • fanime1
    avatar
    Um...I don't think people really scrunch their toilet paper that much and why? She just made the toilet paper too small to use. Sorry, I was more bothered by that than the product, plus everyone else said what's wrong with it.

    Comfort Wipe: whey you're literally too rich to wipe your own ass.

    Wonder if this was made for shits and giggles like most other infomercial products.
  • ladydiskette
    avatar
    You know, at this point even, I kinda wonder if this product was made just to see how far they could get away with it.
  • Guild Navigator

    Definitively one for the THIS EXISTS files.

    This makes the Japanese toilet sprinkler thing look practical.

    Oh come on Mike, you're not testing this one out for us? I am disappoint.
  • ThomasMeyer  - Show, don't tell!
    Why didn't you buy this thing and show us the advantages and ... em ... disadvantages of this product? ;-)
  • Guitar Ghost

    Did they specify if you should use it front-to-back or back-to-front?
  • Enya Kithael
    avatar
    I was legitimately wondering if they were going to specify front to back or back to front.
  • trepiechick
    avatar
    Well if you're a woman, you never wipe back to front, as you could get nasty micro-organisms in other places.
  • baba44713
    Wow... this is perfect for people whose ass is 18 inches below from where the ass should be.

    "Using toilet paper is just disgusting"
    Well then... why just not use any toilet paper? Problem solved!

    This sounds like a really dumb invention... Okay, I might get if that perhaps midgets (or Little People, whatever the PC term is) might require something like this. But other people wouldn't need this.

    One of the many advantages of being a big guy is that no one feels threatened by you. So it's very easy to sneak up on skinny blonde women and rub a stick on their ass. Then you just yell, "YOU JUST GOT COMFORT WIPED!" and walk away. They will be to stunned to do or say anything about it.
