This is indeed in a class by itself...I hope!

This looks like something that could accidentally *remove* a few organs, rather than simply clear them. When was this published/distributed, and is it an actual advertisement or a patent application? If the former, I'd love to see the magazine that ran this!
Hmmmmm. Is it me, or does this sounds a little like RotoRooter?
I thought this one might be a hit :)
Can't remember where I originally found it, but the Museum of Medical Quackery was probably the original source for this and other STARTLING devices:
... or was this maybe one of the anal probes used by the extra-terrestrials in that old series of Saturday Night Live skits?
It does indeed look other-worldly ...
P.S. Since Conan O'Brien is in the news: Conan always had a large studio-style microphone that sat on his desk to the left of him --- he would smack it over sometimes as part of his slapstick. But I always suspected that that "microphone" was a butt-plug in disguise.
Now we'll never know ...
"Large enough to be efficient and small enough for those over the age of 15"?? What the hell does that mean? Do they have a larger model for the youngun's?
And what the hell are piles? I haven't heard that term used by anyone since my grandma.
Can NARTH, EXODUS and all those other gay orientation curing devices and organizations who claim a cure, get put on the quackery heap too?
Oh when, oh when, oh WHEN?
Soon, I hope. I think all the sane people have to get serious about exposing their lies and cruelties. As a therapist, I occasionally see people on the rebound from quacks like those and the first job is piecing them back together after the emotionally shattering experience of being fed so many lies.
