The very latest in weight-loss products

Here's an oldie that I've had waiting for a while. Dave and I were in SuperPharm, a chain of Walgreen's type stores here in Israel. While waiting in line at the pharmacy, Dave noticed this funny little box:


Can you guess what's in this package? The funny thing is (and what those of you who don't speak Hebrew might not initially understand), this is a box of... mosquito repellent! The Hebrew word for mosquito is "yetoosh," and so the makers of this product were trying to be clever - Stop being a word that most Israelis easily know, and Tush being a cutesy name for mosquito. Needless to say, that is not the idea that popped into our heads upon finding this box...

Have a great day, everyone!

Stop Tush... that's so classic! I should buy it for all my American friends who are obsessed with their weight... I'll tell them it's a special Israeli product illegal in the US. :)
