If there is anything more relaxing than having your
scalp probed by what appears to be a small hand-held pitchfork,
we frankly cannot imagine what it is. That is why we are so excited
about this gift item, the Head Trip scalp-massage device.
This product is made from the finest quality of bent wire. According
to the literature that accompanied it, the Head Trip is ``well
on its way to becoming an international fad sensation.'' The literature
also states that this product was originally marketed in Australia
under the name ``The Orgasmatron,'' which raises some troubling
questions in our mind about the physiology of Australians.
Nevertheless, we believe that this is the perfect gift for the
busy person who needs relief from the pressures and tensions of
modern life. Picture it: You're on a cross-country airplane flight,
feeling tense after a hectic business day, so you reach into your
briefcase and whip out your Head Trip. In just moments, you are
experiencing the unique sensation of being jumped on violently
by alarmed fellow passengers. So forget that idea. But the Head
Trip is perfect for anywhere else you feel the need to give your
head a relaxing massage -- in business meetings, on the golf course,
while driving, or at the opera.
