Should other companies follow suit?
"Cisco - least likely to fuck up your business."
"Joes Crab Shack - smallest number of listeria cases."
"Target - More expensive stuff, but fewer customers named BobbySue."
On the other side of the extreme advertising I just bought a mattress pad for our bed with some strange packaging. Our son, aka. "The Urinator" has desecrated our relatively new mattress. Because toddlers possess the ability to continually rotate 360 degrees during the night and yet remain in a deep sleep, the urine is deposited in a startling composition. Surely, anyone coming to haul away our mattress would be convinced we were heavily into golden showers.
Me: We need a new mattress. When it's damp out I can smell the pee!So I huffed off to TJ Max today and bought a Simmons Beautyrest Mattress pad guaranteed to "refresh your tired old mattress". The advertising on the side of the packaging was hysterically optimistic. "Feels just like you might be sleeping on a pillow top mattress." Well I just "might" then! And my favorite, "Pad has special patented stretch material around edges so it will accommodate any depth of mattress". Uh, you mean "elastic"?
Husband: We can't afford one, just get a mattress pad.
Me: So you are proposing that we just layer the urine. Sort of like a urine baklava.
So sweet damn dreams for me tonight eh?
