PRODUCTS THAT "MAN" NEEDS

Product 1 : THE WATER WIFE

DSCF5742

DSCF5743

 

My friend "Präsi" gave each of his friends one of these new "water wifes"!

After one year on my desk time had come to give it a try!

 

DSCF5747

 

Filled with water ! Does that look right to you? Like the real thing!? Even the color is right?! Does that really matter!  ...I guess it lock more like a ice cube bag!

DSCF5752

 

The test person! See the censor bar? Another nice and new product!

DSCF5753

 

Before even getting it on with "water wife " it was over! That is a shame! YES!!!

DSCF5754

 

Dead "water wife"! The advantages: small and foldable, doesn´t need food or shoes!

 

Product 2: THE BLACK BAR

 

DSCF5756

 

DSCF5758

 

DSCF5759

 

The far better product of the two tested is the "black bar" that really kept my identity secret!
