Wait--Enzyte is a Fraud? No Way!

If you're alive and not deaf, surely you've seen and heard those super-catchy Enzyte commercials with the whistling jingle that evokes "The Andy Griffith Show" with its vintage aesthetic.

"Smiling Bob," the clown-ish guy who has taken Enzyte, a "male enhancement product," stands by the grill or delivers "presents" from his newly bigger "sack" at the office Christmas party with a plastic smile on his face.

Well, turns out that the company that sells Enzyte, Berkeley Premium Neutraceuticals, is a fraud. According to the Associated Press, the company's owner, Steve Warshak, was convicted of "93 counts of conspiracy, fraud, and money laundering." He apparently stole more than $100 million from customers. Also shocking: Warshak's mother was also convicted.

We've talked about "male enhancement" products here before; they're all fake. But I'm not gonna lie--the commercials are hilarious.
