Victoria's Rejects by Sydney Altman and Zoe Lazar

For the middle-aged woman who is tired of the realities of growing older, Victoria's Rejects presents a refreshing new outlook. This hilarious catalogue offers a wealth of outrageous products which promise to reverse the hands of time and return aging baby boomers to their former youthful glory.

Victoria's Rejects is guaranteed to restore any woman's sense of humor despite the multiple indignities of aging.

My Review:
If you're a person who enjoys Dave Barry, you'll like this one. I enjoyed it and laughed out loud several times. The cover shows the Knee Fat Lifter, which looks a bit like a garter. It would seem the Skin Clips (shown below) would "work" much the same way.

The "catalog" is divided by these categories: Beauty Products, Cognitive Enhancers, Books, Gift Items, Clothing, Intimate Matters, Sensory Aids, New Age, Mood Modifiers, Dolls, Baby It's You, Music, Exercise, Health Supplements, Trips, Continuing Education, and concludes with an Order Worksheet.

I think that this would be a fun gift idea for any lady over a certain age who has a sense of humor. My favorite item is Space-shoe Heels. I think that I should order a pair! You have to see it to believe it! "A picture is worth a thousand words," the saying goes, and so I will include three wonderful examples of this funny book (that looks like a stiff magazine).

I can vouch for this book being hilarious. I bought four copies and gave them as gifts to friends that needed a chuckle. :)
