How lazy are we?

I saw a commercial for this gadget today and just had to comment on it. It's the EZ Cracker and you can check out the commercial here.

And if you call in the next 20 minutes they'll throw in the EZ Scrambler that... yup you guessed it, scrambles the egg.... RIGHT IN THE SHELL. For perfect scrambled eggs every single time! Too bad the scrambler isn't shown in the linked commercial. The ad today must have been an updated version.

Has the world really come to a level of laziness that we need help cracking and scrambling eggs?

I think it was George Carlson that said "(North) Americans will buy anything. Nail together two things that have never been nailed together before and we'll buy it."

One of my Cpls owned an electric pizza cutter (bought at a Northern Store in the Arctic). It was one of those pizza wheels, but it vibrated. I'm sure if I checked he probably owns the EZ Cracker.

The gadget for "frying" bacon in the micro can be found here, but I haven't seen the egg cracker... Rest easy - it'll soon be offered through TV Shop - and I know a handful of people who will probably buy it!
