I was also being a bit sarcastic.

People get pissed off with these infomercial offers because they never tell you the shipping costs up front. It is normal to hear them say, "We will toss in a second widget absolutely free. Just pay an additional shipping and processing fee." On their web sites, they do not show the shipping costs until AFTER you give them your credit card information and place the order. Sometimes you will never see the total cost until you get your credit card bill. The scam is that shipping and processing fees frequently exceed the cost of the product.
