Remember this? Oh how we laughed. But now we must laugh on the other side of our faces because the darn things exist and across America women are raving about the wondeous floor cleaning properties of the Slipper Genie, apparently really rather fabulous for dealing with dog hair and the bestest invention ever for getting the kids to volunteer to help with the housework!
Bonkers. I mean what happened to good old fashioned graft?  Will Housemaids Knee go the same way as the Dodo? Will we all have to shimmy into skinnier jeans now as a result of  pretend ice-skating up and down the hallway when we could be watching Jerry Springer? And does all this harping mean I don’t want a pair?
Don’t be silly. Of course I do. They are all the rage apparently.
