You know what I'm talking about, things like Shamwow. Did they stay up all night thinking of that? Or Jig-a-loo, there's a winner!
Yet these products still made it and for some reason the name sticks in your head.

So what other products can you think of with an "idiot" name

I will never buy any of the ____On products.
I refuse to reward bad behavior or annoying ads.
