The "Piggy You" diet doll
Just in case you thought you'd seen everything, take a look at this dinosaur: the "Piggy You" diet doll, patented in 1991.
The doll attaches to your refrigerator with magnets along its tush. The charming caption underneath it is meant as instructions, I guess. Instructions for self-flagellation.
I really don't think I can express my thoughts about this any better than Elizabeth Valeri already did. Except to say thank God this doll never made it past the conceptual stage. At least I don't think it did.
