Life Gives You Lemons, You Buy Garbage

This cheesy toy-like lemonade maker is supposed to take you back to the good old days, when everything wasn't made of plastic and destined to end up in a NJ landfill after just a few uses.

Hey, here's an idea! Buy a fucking blender. They're cheaper (about 20 bucks), bound to last longer (made of glass and metal), and you'll avoid offending people by not serving them lemonade out of a something that looks like it came from the clearance bin at Duane Reade.

Old Fashioned Lemonade Maker Make refreshing old fashioned lemonade with this nostalgic lemonade stand. Rolling wheels and decorative signs combine old fashion style with quality and functionality. Juices fresh fruits while mixing ice and other ingredients. Easy dispensing spout, on/off switch activates the juicer and stirring. Works with oranges and other squeezable fruits. Electric. Plastic, 9 1/2 x 6 3/4 x 15 1/4". $39.98 [Taylor Gifts]

Blenders don't make lemonade! Unless you like rind and pith in your lemonade!

If blenders don't make lemonade, then what does this do? It blends the ingredients. So, I'm trying to wake people up to the fact that they probably already have one. Or could get one and use it for other things, instead of just lemonade.

Am I preaching to the choir? Because it sure feels like it.

I just don't understand. Are people too lazy these days to stir some friggin sugar into some lemon juice? Cuz, that's all that lemonade is, right? Sugar and lemon juice? People need machinery for that?
