Hi World – It’s Noah, back as a guest blogger again!
(Did ya miss me??)
I know, I know. I haven’t been blogging as much as I used to, but I’m far too busy in my evil plot to destroy all of The Servant’s electronic devices to actually sit down and use one.
(Hey – did you know if you aim a drool bomb directly into the microphone jack of an iPhone, it will disable your Servant from hearing anything on their phone except on speakerphone for approximately 12.75 hours? It’s great if you want to hear both sides of their conversations.)
(Also? This trick works over and over and over again – I have impeccably aimed drool.)
(Ooh, ooh – and the metallic sides of the iPhone 4 taste AMAZING – just like the aftertaste of Gorgonzola Cheese!! You should try it if you’re ever out of nasty cheese.)
But I digress. I just wanted to pop in for a quick product review of The GyroBowl. You know – that bowl that you supposedly can’t spill, no matter what you do with it??
The servants are total suckers for an interesting “As Seen On TV” product (except for Snuggies. No matter how many times I ask, they won’t get me the Super Plush Infant Snuggie!! I don’t get it. Super plush!!).
Anyway, so when they saw the Gyrobowl fall down the stairs and not spill a crumb on it’s commercial, and then they saw one for sale in Wal-Mart, they were like sitting consumer ducks.
So they totally bought me one.
I took the whole “unspillable” concept as an affront to my ability to thoroughly disperse all manners of matter, so I accepted their grievously offensive challenge.
You think I can’t spill the unspillable bowl? Give it to me and let me try.
I have to admit that I was impressed with my inability to immediately spill it into my crotch, my favorite place to store excess food.
But I was not deterred. Nay, I was determined!!
And I did not disappoint myself. Within seconds, I had marked my territory and proven that the Gyrobowl was not so Gyroriffic after all.
Then I laughed with my Doofenshmirtz cackle as The Servant cleaned it all up and naively gave me another bowl of Goldfish.
And in 2.73 seconds, I did this:
And then again,
(But at least I did manage to put one Goldfish in my mouth that last time. I think it made The Servant pull out one less of her eyelashes in despairing frustration.)
At any rate, I found three distinct ways to deproof the Babyproof bowl:
1. Turn the bowl over at a very fast speed while simultaneously jerking it to the side. This requires the use of specific angles and cosines that I calculated beforehand with the help of The Servant Who Calls Himself Daddy’s Reverse Polish Notation Calculator.
Or, if you don’t have one of those handy,
2. Simply hold the bowl in place with your thumb to keep it from turning when you dump it. So easy!! So effective!!
But if you want to add a touch of pizazz to your dumping,
3. Get a goldfish stuck in between the bowls, thereby preventing the gyration of the bowl altogether.
In summary, I found this bowl to not slow my spill processes down at all – in fact, I would say that it’s claims reek with the stench of one of my Masterpiece Diaper Creations, which, coincidentally enough, are also not spill-proof.
But then again, what did they expect? I am, after all, an Artisan Mess Maker.

Noah, you are a great blogger and pretty darn smart for your age. I wonder what Ali would say if she were the guest blogger…hmmm.
I knew that “Gyrobowl” would only keep adults from spilling… we just don’t try hard enough.
Hilarious! I’m pretty sure “As seen on TV”=”Doesn’t work in real life”. It really is too bad though because who wouldn’t want a juicer that also folds laundry, feeds your pets, and is capable of carrying on intellegent adult conversation…with no shipping or handling if you call in the next thirty minutes! lol. Noah is as funny, and, stinking adorable, as ever!
come to think of it, we don’t often continue using our As Seen On TV purchases… hmm. Maybe we need to rethink our strange obsession…
I wondered if those bowls were too good to be true. What a Gyro Gyp. The baby expressions are priceless though.
When I saw those the first time I knew it wasn’t true. Call it mommy instinct or just plain old common sense, but good grief. Really?
So glad to have a first-hand account review, thanks Noah! I ALMOST bought one once – glad I didn’t bother :) Better luck next time little man!
I saw the bowl, and yes thought about Noah, but something just told me these could not work well with the speed of which kids swing things. Noah, your pictures are great and the blog is well written considering your age.
I would think the manufacturer would pay you to remove this post! Maybe start a college scholarship fund for Noah and then employ him to be the tester for future products…..worth a pitch?
Sounds perfect!! Oh Gyrobowl, wherefore art thou?!?!?
This is kind of off topic, but do you realize how much Noah looks like he was drawn by Chuck Jones?
Not kidding. I think it’s the eyelashes. Go watch What’s Opera, Doc? and tell me what you think. Elmer Fudd’s baby nephew.
Ha! I can see it a little…
We went into a Chuck Jones art store when we were in San Diego – there was some amazing stuff in there!!
I love looking at your little boy. He is just so darn cute! And hilarious… :-)
Just b/c I haven’t said it lately…Noah is so darn cute!!
I have also wondered if it worked. Thanks for saving me from wasting my money on it. Noah is adorable!! I just love his eyes and his many facial expressions!
I keep looking at those and scoffing “ha, my kids would totally spill with it!”, and I’m so glad you saved me from the temptation of buying one just to make sure ;-)
I’ve wanted to get one of those bowls for awhile, but won’t now after reading Noah’s review!
