I Love Leptoprin

I was always enamored of those Leptoprin commercials… I’ve talked about them to friends… talking about the announcer’s piercing blue eyes looking right into my chubby heart. Her intensity driving me to say, “I -am- strong enough to buy such a powerful weight loss compound! I am! When is a diet pill worth $153 a bottle? Now! Dammit! Where’s my check book?” But it’s like other people didn’t stay up as late as I did or something. None of my friends believe Leptoprin Lady exists! Here’s a little proof (and a bit of a homage) that the stuff really exists.

The Federal Trade Commission loves Leptoprin so much, they got someone to make a transcript of the whole commercial.

RHONDA WILLIAMS: I went from a size 18 down to a size 7 dress. If you had told me that I would have dropped 50 pounds, I would never have believed it. And now look at me.

FEMALE ANNOUNCER: If you’re one of those people who constantly worry about five or six vanity pounds, Leptoprin is not for you. Leptoprin is much too expensive and much too powerful for the casual dieter. But if you’re one of the millions of Americans who are 20, 30, 50 pounds or more overweight, you need Leptoprin.

    I don’t believe that the Federal Trade Commission “loves” this treatment so much that it has a transcript on its website. It is a consumer protection service and has transcripts of many product advertisements. Just to be clear, this is not an endorsement, support in any way, of the product.

    SARCASM.

    You didn’t even freaking mouse-over the “DOCKET” link. Think before you type.

    JN was on week one of testing.
    Boring, “DC style” transcript, yet would be useful for the bonbon nation, if they were willing to read.
