Ladies, are you tired of using those cumbersome, brutish pens that are made for manly hands? Do you dread sitting down to write a letter to your sweetheart or compile the grocery list, because regular pens are just too difficult to use? Then Bic has a product for you: the Bic for Her, which is a special, magic lady pen that was created for our delicate sensibilities. But it looks like some Amazon reviewers don’t have the most positive reactions to this product…producing some hilarious reviews!
One reviewer writes about her confusion in regards to the instrument:
I was recently given a box of these as a gift from my husband, but I have no idea what to do with them! They’re too thin to make a good rolling pin. I can’t ladle out my soups with them. And the tiny point doesn’t even make a dent when I try to use one to chop veggies! I don’t get it. If I can’t use it in the kitchen, what the hell am I supposed to do with one????”
Another seems to be, um, doing it wrong:
I tried these on a whim, and I have to say I wasn’t very impressed. The applicator mechanism is far too fiddly, and the plastic tampon inside far too thin (not to mention uncomfortable and non-absorbant) – I’m sure there must be a knack to using them, but I couldn’t find it. They also stained my knickers blue for some reason. I really wanted to like these, but it’s back to pads for me.”
One man sees the inherent danger of the devices:
We’re all joking about this, naturally (a woman using a pen – ridiculous!), but this could have serious implications. What’s next, ladies attending universities? Pens to encourage literacy in the lower orders? The modern world is a mad place indeed.
Amazon, I do hope you’re scrupulous in only selling these to married men to give to their wives. To be used under strict supervision and with a doctor’s note of consent.”
Well! I sure am thankful that Bic has finally provided me with this useful tool to better my life. Head on over to the source to see even more silliness! [via Jezebel]
