Achy Breaky Knees and Giveaway!

So the Random Number Generator got all riled up after we pulled it out of the Cranky Fitness basement last week, and it made such a ruckus about being locked up again that we felt we had no choice but to do another giveaway this week.

This one will be of special interest to anyone (like me) who has knee issues. I'm often complaining about how my knees are trashed and I can't run nearly as often or as far as I want to. So I was curious to try a product designed to help with this problem, called a "Moji."

"Moji" sounds sort of sweet and cuddly, doesn't it, like a dog's name? ("C'mere Moji; stop rolling in that dead skunk!") Or maybe Moji sounds more like a tropical fruit, now available in an antioxidant-rich beverage blend. ("Try new Cranberry flavored Moji, now with 50% more Vitamin C!)

But no, as it turns out, Moji is not a dog, nor is it a beverage.

Want to know more about Moji? Like what the heck it is, how well I liked it, and how you could win one? Well, please follow me over to the Cranky Fitness Product Page, where all shall be revealed. That's where today's main post is. Plus, the giveaway is open to international folks too!

Back already? Well, I've also got a few other random items to tell you about.

Over at The Juice, they've still got the $200 Patagonia gift card giveaway going ('til August 3rd) and your chances look mighty good because they don't have a ton of entries yet. Also, this week I diagnosed myself with a debilitating mental illness, called SNAD. Perhaps some of you suffer from it too and don't even realize it!

And over at Half-Fast, clever Vanilla has discovered a new exercise gadget that is unintentionally and hilariously X-Rated. How many of you ladies would purchase the Shake Weight?


  1. Where is the shake weight giveaway?!!! LOL!!!

  2. OMG that Shake Weight ad is hilarious. Made my day.

  3. I have a case of partial SNAD (I am on facebook, although I don't do much there) - twitter scares me silly!

    And that Shake Weight looks like it'll be really, really popular with single women.....

  4. I screamed with laughter at that ad... Would love to see some product reviews of the Shake Weight!

  5. Not sure about the weight shake, but the Moji seems like a pretty neat thing. I wonder if it comes in full body size for those really big aches and pains.

  6. This Shake Weight most certainly was designed by a man. I'm surprised he left out the straw at the end. Does the giveaway also provide bail money for doing this in public? Good laugh!

  7. That is absolutely hilarious...
    Is that really for real?

  8. 2 1/2 pounds and 6 minutes a day? Seriously?

    LOL at the Bag Lady. :)

  9. Oh, pohleeeze! (I just saw the Shake weight ad). Notice how the models are all young. I'd like to see geriatric models in the ad. No, seriously! It's a nice, gentle strength-training gadget. It would benefit them, too. Funny, Crabby!

    On the practical side, save the $20 plus s/h and just shake a filled water bottle.

  10. I so have SNAD! I am on Facebook.. barely.. just cause a couple relatives wanted me on theirs as a friend & also for my Sarcoma cause.

    As for Twitter.. that just scares me & I am not sure I get it. PLUS, who has all this time. Like you, Crabby, I don't have enough time for my blog & just getting to other blogs to read & comment. Where do people find the time. I am a very slow "typist" so maybe that has something to do with it! :-)

    As for the Moji, I don't need it, thank goodness, so I will not comment at your give away page.

  11. I cant believe that is a real life product?!?

  12. Oh my gosh. That IS x-rated. Like anyone is actually going to sit there and shake it like that.LOL. Ok, I kinda want to show this to my husband. Thanks for the laugh.

  13. My husband was watching this video over my shoulder and nearly died laughing. And heaven forbid we get bulky. We're girls, we're supposed to be what? Oh yeah, long and lean. Read emaciated with a bit of muscle definition thrown in. Excellent!

  14. My neck and shoulders started hurting just watching the Shake Weight being used.

  15. Do we really need an instructional DVD for the Shake Weight?!
