News, but not the serious kind
I’ve ALWAYS wanted whatever this is!
Blog Guy, anything new for us from Williams-Sonoma? I’m starting my Christmas shopping early this year.
You know, I think I pick on them too much. I mean, those folks are just trying to make a living with their $2,399.95 espresso machine, to choose an item at random from the new catalog.
There are plenty of other stores that sell stuff we don’t need. I just got the new Hammacher Schlemmer catalog in the mail.
Hammacher Schlemmer? What does that mean?
I believe it’s a German phrase that roughly translates to “WTF is THIS?” I get the giggles just thumbing through this thing.
What kind of stuff do they have? I’m always on the lookout for useless crap.
Then you should check out the iPhone Cordless Handset, which takes your sleek, cutting-edge Apple phone and makes it look like something Andy of Mayberry would use to call Floyd the barber.
Cool! What else?
How about the Only Complete Swiss Army Knife, with 87 precision-engineered tools, just $1,400. A pocket to carry it in isn’t included.
Tell me more.
Um, there’s the Only Heated Outdoor Cat House, which “keeps felines warm and comfy in cool temperatures.”
You know what else keeps felines warm and comfy in cool temperatures? My own house, which I share with my pets instead of making them live in the yard.
BTW, this house isn’t very tall, so those of you in heavy snowdrift regions might want to consider that before ordering it.
Maybe you’d be interested in the Hands Free Hair Rejuvenator, using the same therapy “employed by medical professionals.” It has 21 built-in lasers and goes for $699.95.
Or these Golf Ball Locating Glasses, with special lenses so you can find your golf balls AND look like a huge dork.
Wow! So I guess you’ll be getting Lamar’s Christmas gift from this catalog?
Yeah, I’m having them combine the hair rejuvenator and the golf ball glasses into one unit for him. He’ll love it.
Lamar! No, don’t reach for that golf ball in the pond while the electric lasers are plugged… Oh well, at least his hair looked nice…
