    https://www.theguardian.com/comment...-paltrow-goop-coffee-enema-colonic-irrigation

    (some ruder ones there too that were very funny :whistle:)

    @Woolie, Don't you know that I have better things to do with my time than read silly articles about Gwyneth Paltrow? (Apparently I don't, because I did it.)

    On a more serious note - doesn't Gwyneth have a lot of money already? Why does she feel the need to make more by selling useless to dangerous stuff to gullible people?

    Nice try, but I'm not going to read the Guardian and you can't make me :)

    Would you read the Guardian for some slightly “used” coffee from Ms P?

    How about a free coupon for a vaginal steam (worth $100)?

    If not, then you are simply never going to read the Guardian. So run along now.

    I read it for you, Luther. I didn't mean to — I just found myself clicking on the link, maybe driven by MErmaid's mention of vaginal steaming. How did I not know vaginal steaming was a thing? I've got a kettle. Why didn't I think of it?

    I'll be back after coffee.

    I strictly avoid, unless I'm reading a smear of a friend. :p

    My knight in shining armour. :rofl: I'm not really sure how to reply to your added information, but please be careful.

    I just liked this post but I really wish there was a "like-ish" button for those moments that everything goes a bit ewwwwww......

    I'm happy to stick to Kenny Rogers fried chicken via my cake hole.

    I just re-read my own post and I'm looking for a dislike button. Honestly, what was I thinking? Two minutes with Gwyneth Paltrow and I've lost my mind.

    Funny how these weird ideas stick around for so long, then get picked up again by celebrities. I remember some of my alt med friends nearly 40 years ago trying coffee enemas.

    The theory then, as I remember it, was it stimulated the liver to remove toxins. Since they were all young and very healthy, I don't know what toxins they imagined they would be eliminating. I even got as far as buying the plastic container with attached tubing to administer it, but never quite got past the yuck factor to trying it.

    Am I still allowed to use the Guardian to wipe my arse with?

    And anyone hoping for a steamy encounter with Gwyneth Paltrow should be careful what they wish for.

    I think this is a great idea, her fans should try it with some added Dragon chili pepper for added effectiveness :eek:

    I have a very rare sound, only made when reading something very amusing, that sounds something like Goofy being surprised by a pig.

    Your post caused the sound, therefore it cannot be unliked.

    What a thread.

    Don't make me stamp my foot twice in one thread! (And kindly leave my giblets out of it) :p
