File in the "What are they thinking?" department

If you are a connoisseur of late night television commercials, as, sadly, I am, you have no doubt seen the ad for something called the Shamwow, some sort of product that you buy for 20 bucks and it replaces all those paper towels you have to purchase throughout the year. I guess this was an untapped market. Anyhoo, it is pitched by one of those annoying, fast-talking, shouting-just-a-bit-too-loud spokespeople. And every time I see this damn thing, I always wonder why one of their selling points is - and this is pretty close to verbatim - "It's made by the Germans, and you know they make good products."

I always want to shout back: "Oh yeah, those gas ovens they made that killed six million innocent people worked very efficiently."

But, alas, I don't.
