It's a cane! It's a dumb-bell! It's a dumb-bell cane!!
(click ad, via ) Lazy fucks of today have the Ab-lounge. Back in 1900, they had the Dumb-Bell Cane. What made a cane a dumb-bell, you may be wondering? Why, they attached a "solid ball of finely nickeled metal" to the end of a wooden stick, which enabled gentlemen to exercise as they walked "to and from (their) business" and, in the process, "develop the muscular power of an athlete." Three bucks, for a cane. I guess that's better than $14,615 for an exercise bike.
