Rubber Necking

Ladies and their pillows

“I could feel it stretching out my neck; just like how my chiropractor does when he does traction on my neck.”

For some reason, that statement scares me.

I don’t know if it’s because I saw this ad in the wee hours of the morning (sleep deprivation can play some tricks on you), or if it’s because I go to a chiropractor often.

It doesn’t scare me enough to rush out and buy the thing though. I mean I don’t know if I really buy the idea of a pillow in existence that feels like a person who drives a nice car and wears orthopedic shoes?

During my chiropractic sessions they use a number of devices on me, and so far none of them have required me to look like my I’m a passenger of the Titanic, and for as much money I’ve blown on said service, not once have I ever been required to physically inflate anything.

So yeah…a pillow that straightens out the cricks in your neck…Hmm, don’t know if science hasn’t gotten that far yet, but maybe I’m wrong.

Maybe there’s a nerve in my neck that’s preventing me from making that leap.


These people seem to be all about Dr. Ho’s airs though.

I think I’m a little about the slogans he had his ad people get for him.

“The DR-HO’S® Neck Comforter™ is always there when you need it, twenty-four hours a day, every day. Use it as often as you need it.”

Pillows are comforting and I suppose if you have no one or thing else, you might want to run over to one. Who doesn’t love 24hr service?

Check it out and get back to me.

Dr. Ho’s Neck Comfortor

The name alone sounds classy classy right?

I wonder if Kayan people look at this and giggle. *sigh*
