Has anyone seen this informercial for "Miracle Spring Water from God"?
I couldn't believe it when I saw it on Global Television the other night. Absolutely shocking. I kept waiting for the Geico guy to say it was all a joke and he got a great deal on his insurance. But alas, it's real.
How can this be??

This is most likely water from the tap. That he blesses bottles and sells himself. I am catholic (sort of) I know thats where holy water comes from. Its not from some holy mountain somewhere.

I have no idea where it comes from but he doesn't sell it, as far as i know. He will send you a some for free, but then he'll keep sending you weird things in the mail (pieces of fabric, yarn, pennies, seeds that all have some meaning) and ask you to send it back, with a donation of course.
Crock I say.

I shall go forth into my house and gather thy materials, yarn, seeds, burrs from Joeys hair, pieces from Mcdonalds toys and lasts week PB & J sandwich that is underneath the couch cushions.
With my miracle powers I will bless these and send them all to you. All of your problems will be solved, you will become the most desired person in the universe.
You will have everlasting luck your entire life.
God has asked me to ask you to send him a small cash donation. $10.00 for every small miracles. If you want to win a lottery thats gonna cost you big time $10,000 and 40% of the profits. Of course I will Fedex all profits directly to the big guy upstairs minus a small administration fee of course.
Go forth my people and spread the word.

"There's a sucker born every minute . . . " - credited to PT Barnum but now no one really knows who said it.
Nevertheless, appropriate in this thread.

Do you drink it? Can you mix it with Kool-Aid?? What if you mix that with the evil mud-puddle water I bought from the Church of Satan? Do they cancle each other out and it just becomes ordinary water? If you drink half of it, then re-fill the bottle with regular water and shake it really well, then, instead of miracles, will stuff happen that makes you say, "Well, it wasn't a miracle, but it was kind of cool". And if I make it into ice, can I use it to make Miracle Daquari's?

Yesterday I was eating my pizza at work and after I took a sip of my miracle springs water mixed with the Satan water that I got from Schwinn I saw a vision in my pizza of a guy on a mountain bike. :angel: :o

LOL Dogastrophe- nice fine print. :)

:crazy: I stole the bulk of the disclaimer list from the net and made a few additions to it.
Do you suppose that Miracle Spring Water is a Ronco product? Will he soon be selling it alongside the new ginzu knives and the Ronco Rotisseri oven.
September 13th, 2005, 01:39 PM
Ron Popiel? :D I haven't seen his infomercials in AGES! What memories. I loved the potato stand the most... It was a tree-like thing you put your potatoes on for storage. That was the funniest.
September 13th, 2005, 02:14 PM
Yeah, that's the guy. I couldn't remember his last name. In his 'set it and forget it' rotisseri oven commercial he pulls on what looks to be industrial strength rubber gloves to handle the food coming out of the oven.

I am working on my testimonial for his show. I'm planning to be discovered.
