    Man with pince-nez & smart suit mesmerizes trusses and causes them to float midair with the power of his mind!

    I wrote to that address to get my free book of advice, but all they keep sending me is burritos, which if anything, add to my rupturing…

    This just in: Thomas Wayne actually killed by humbug truss attack!

    BB is really going to some strange places for ad revenue.

    I do not envy people of past eras their medical technologies. Yikes. I’ll have my er, rupture operated on, thanks.

    Billy Joel was right: It’s always been a matter of truss.

    In the words of Spike Milligan, ” Thank you for your support. I shall wear it always.”

    $10K a year amounted to a pretty impressive Truss Fund in those days.

  11. Alan Olsen says:

    He is just acting like a Truss Fund baby!

  12. Gary61 says:

    “Get rid of that truss! New, from RonCo – Nugget Nuzzlers! never feel so ‘handled’ again!”

  13. SedanChair says:

    It looks like he’s casting a Level 3 Imperialism spell

    Could someone tell me what the hell this thing is talking about?! ‘Ruptures’? Trusses? And what or who is a ‘Prince-nez’? Is that like a male princess? A rupture in your pants? Is it to hold up your socks? I can’t make any sense of this, it’s just bizarre.

  15. PinkWithIndignation says:

    5000 endorsements. That seems a bit excessive. Are they ALL in the book?

  16. pjcamp says:

    William Howard Taft is free balling.

    Were hernias so prevalent as to spawn a billion dollar (in today’s dollars) industry? In all my life, I’ve only know one person with a hernia of any sort, and, well… hmm… okay, I admit it, I know about 3 people, which means hernias must affect at least 33% of the population.

    • eviladrian says:

      My theory is that “hernia” was a euphemism for one or more ailments of the “downstairs area” that were considered taboo in the society of that time.

  18. Under Obamacare, doctors have to provide free trusses to patients, but they don’t have to act happy about it.

    I know guys with a truss for every day of the week. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    My pince-nez keeps slipping…

  20. Stjohn says:

    Any time I read the word “rupture” I hear it in a Stephen King character’s voice:   “Sent him home with a fuckin’ rupture.”

    What’s the literary/lexical equivalent of an earworm?

  21. fuzzmello says:

    you can still get the book mentioned in the ad.  pdf instead of cloth-bound, but… http://www.groin-hernia.com/herniabible/downloads/CluthesAdvice.pdf

    “Guaranteed to hold at all times – including when you are working, taking a bath, etc.”  

    ‘Etc.’ is another way to spell sex.

    What if God was one of us?
    Just a stranger on a bus?
    Get a hernia, wear a truss
    Jersey towns like Paramus
    And there’s also Hohokus
    Gravel-voiced Snuffleupagus

    I tried them, but couldn’t handle the scratching metal slides.

    I’m just glad to live in a time when a ‘rupture’ is fairly easily treated in a minor surgery, instead of a new cross to bear for the rest of your uncomfortable life.
