Today in awesome Groupon offers: Slap Chop for Dh49

Powered by automated translation

I have no idea whether the Slap Chop is as awesome as it looks or not, but it sure appears to be a handy alternative to slicing and dicing. Anyway, that is neither here nor there. The reason for highlighting the Slap Chop in this way is to draw your attention to the handy instructional video, which is right up there with ads for the Bump It and ShamWow when it comes to pure entertainment value. Circa 2008, hosted by Offer "Vince" Shlomi, also known as Headset Vince, it might be one of the best home shopping videos ever, spawning numerous catchphrases including "stop having boring tuna, stop having a boring life"; "life's hard enough as it is, you don't want to cry anymore" and "we're going to make America skinny again, one slap at a time".

PS: At last check, more than 200 people had snapped up the Slap Chop offer.

The deal is on.

Also, Shlomi's Wikipedia

makes for some entertaining reading, not to mention a template for the typical "15 minutes of fame". There is the commercial success, the altercation with a prostitute, mug shot, and finally, a comeback of sorts earlier this year with Shlomi's role in a commercial for Schticky, a reusable lint roller.
