Default Matt Furey

In my quest to become a minor league fitness celebrity (tm) I subscribe to Matt Furey's email newsletter list so that I can study the "zen master of the internet (tm)"

I thought Furey might have gone too far with his chinese cultural sex secrets cd's but it looks like he's gone to the next level.

Click this link and look at product 6.....

Here's the thing.

Matt Furey makes his big money telling people how to make money, just like all those other guys. He's lost the audience of real athletes and those who can read and understand science at the 7th grade level, and how caters to the vague conservative and right wing markets online.

These products are like a joke on other people. I'm pretty sure he's snickering all the way to the bank, because he's got a huge email list and that generates his sales.

Marketing 101...say you have a secret and then charge big money....you will never get the serious crowd following him but the larger "I'll take any shortcut or buy anything on QVC or is a secret" crowd is a much bigger pond to fish in....hence someone actually took it literally and wrote the book/DVD called "The Secret" and it sold millions!!....and it was nothing new, just a nice shiny new package it came in....

although I've always wondered how to take a crap....Hmmmmmm......

I guess he didn't read "Ron Nelson's Super Cleanse Technique."

Drink a bunch of tequila, eat a bunch of jalapenos, have a beer or two.

Wait until morning. If you can't take a crap after that, then you are one big dumbshit.

Pun certainly intended.

You left off eating a bucket of "Three Mile Island" Buffallo Wings and a 32oz Coffee in the morning.....then you need handlebars on the side of the toilet from keeping yourself putting your head through the ceiling....blastoff!

I just laughed out loud at the "blastoff" comment, there is a guy at my work that always talks about matt furey and how great he is. The results definitely speak for themselves.
