The market will take care of these pens. If there is a demand for these pens, women will ask their husbands for money so that they can buy them. I don’t know what everyone is so upset about.

I'm talking about the commenters here. People are poking fun at a ridiculous product. The only one getting wound up about it are you guys. "All over pens there is so much going in the world other than this no joke." Which explains your presence here, instead of raising awareness to those serious issues? "People really get that offended over an obviously lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek product?" That's why it's so funny; it isn't tongue-in-cheek, it's an at to be taken "seriously". @Deb - First off, where are you finding these designer utilities? Second, even if that were true, those are applications for decoration as much as use. These are...just pens. Most people in the world do not care what pen they use. The ads make it seem like this is the product women have been waiting for. Which, of course, adds to the hilarity. @Chronologyman- If you've seen every other ad, you'll see they want much more than that. Seriously people, lighten up already. It's a dumb product that is being called out on. Oh for Lord’s sake people, learn to take a damn joke! I’m talking about the commenters here. People are poking fun at a ridiculous product.

So there's no need for adult women to get their boxers in a twist about it! If you’ve seen the television ads for these pens, they are obviously marketing them to young schoolgirls.

Well okay then. :/ Wow...people have way too much time on their hands and not enough brain matter in their heads.
