The Amazing Gymnic!

What is that thing?  Looks like one of those big, rubber balls from down at the gym, right?  Wrong!

Peg-o-Leg Industries is proud to present…

 Gymnic,  The Amazing Ball of Truth!   

Everyone who hops on Gymnic is in for a bouncy ride on the truth train.    That’s because its snazzy polypropolene exterior has been coated with our secret formula truth serum.  Sit on it and you just can’t help telling it like it is.

Makes a great party game.  Souls in torment have never been so much fun!

What will you reveal while bouncing on Gymnic?

*Gymnic is available in Reality Red and Veracity Blue.   Peg-o- Leg Industries is a division of Peg-Co.  Peg-Co is not responsible for any hurt feelings, broken relationships,  suicidal thoughts or back strain that may result from using Gymnic.

  4. It’s no small coincidence that the truth comes in through the ass and out through the mouth. There’s got to be a joke about politicians in there somewhere.

    When you say ‘operators standing by’, I think I’ve figured out where Mr. Skittles has found gainful employment.

      How many Prozac do you recommend?
      I saw this box at the charity thrift store with all the people sitting around on rubber balls in their normal clothes, and the old lady looking so forlorn. I.couldn’t resist how random it was.

    Thanks for the business idea, Peg. I’m on my way to the patent office now, but mine is going to be called the ver-ass-ity orb.

    Fantastically hilarious, Peg! I just slapped myself for not discovering Gymnic before you did. Where ever did you find this? I love the old dime store price tag in the corner. A nice touch. If I order right now, will I get a free flag lapel pin?

    I’ve got to get one of your balls. Mine is plain and all I do is groan, “I hate this.” when I sit on it. (And you who have gutter brains can stop making rude translations as you read this. Stop it.)

      Do you really use it as a chair? I thought it was an exercise ball, but everybody on the box was dressed in their street clothes. That’s what struck me so funny. I was giggling and snorting like a loon at the thrift store.

    LOVE. We had to sit on these when I worked the front desk at a physio clinic. Something to do with better posture and stronger stabilization muscles blah blah blah. It was impossible not to pogo around the office, though. Seriously– you can’t just *sit* on it!

    Your truths are priceless, by the way. I can’t stop giggling! 🙂

        They say you can’t slouch on one of those suckers, but I beg to differ. Sure, my core muscles might have been engaged all day, but I learned how to look like a sloth even on one of those balls. 🙂

      I’m so sorry – I somehow missed this comment. Thank you so much for the bloggy shout out! I have something of a reputation for being much too lazy to follow through on the stringent requirements for awards, but I do appreciate the kind thoughts.

    $15? That’s what they cost here – NEW! And I should know I have to bloody import the things and then have them couriered from 500km away! They’re good balls and I’ve always wondered what those people were thinking sitting on them and posing like they do – they’re Swiss people by the way. Not to worry I read all their truths with a Swiss accent in my head and then hurt myself laughing from falling off my Gymnic!

    Thanks Peg-o-Leg – if I knew how to nominate you for something I would. Instead I’ll have a double wine to celebrate subscribing to someone as funny as you 😀

      I don’t know what the thrift store is thinking having this priced so high – apparently they don’t really want to sell it. I thought for sure those pictures were from the 1980s, so it’s a surprise to learn they still make them. Are they comfy to sit on, or do they hurt your back after a while?

      Thanks so much for stopping by and shedding some light on the Gymnic phenomenon. Have some more wine!

        I’m sure the pictures are from the ’80’s but since the product is so successful (because it’s good quality) they probably thought that it was wiser to not change their obviously winning marketing recipe.
        They’re comfy to sit on for short increments of time and then as you become more used to it one is supposed to sit on it for 40 mins out of the hour.
        Sitting on anything after a while would hurt your back – it’s not really our optimal position as hunter gatherers – poxy postural evolution hasn’t quite caught up with the Sedentary Lifestyle. That’s why I try to sit as much as possible – I alone will hurry up the process to not have our backs not hurt while we increase the surface area of our bums!

            No, don’t go and buy the ball second hand, maybe someone gave birth on it or something – ew! At that price spring for a new one and let it gather dust in your own garage 😉
