Flavio Invention # 1367-The Tear Sucker

August 17th, 2006


Get rid of your balled up tissues wads from all that emotional crying and difficult “soul searching” you’ve been doing!

Feel special with the new “Tear Sucker”

Each individually wrapped, five-ply (patent-pending) special material is so wonderfully absorbant it sucks the tear right from your eye! And if that isn’t enough a tiny vacuum built inside will suck out even those ‘hard-to-reach’ tears!

Can hold up to 5 gallons of pure tears.

C’mon! Admit it!

You NEED these!
