Just wondering if Congress passed a new law mandating Spanx references in all sitcoms? Discuss.

Sadly enough, I had to google spanx to figure out what it was. I guess I'm really out of the loop.

I hadn't heard of them either a month ago, and since then I swear I've heard at least 5 references on various sitcoms. I'd guess product placement, but the joke is that spanx are for insecure schlubby girls [Liz Lemon on 30 Rock has had TWO of said references in said time period, 'date spanx' for an upcoming date, and 'night spanx' when she was caught sleep eating on camera]. But then, I guess that could be a target demographic.

First time I had heard of them was on Wanda Sykes comedy special.
