How not to market your business

When researching accommodations in Hawaii, kben found this:

Okay, call me crazy...
...but this:

"From our home base you will have easy access to the rivers of molten lava that are flowing from the summit of the Kilauea volcano."

DOES NOT MAKE ME WANT TO STAY AT YOUR BED AND BREAKFAST!

Easy access to RIVERS OF MOLTEN LAVA? Not on the list of amenities that I'm lookin' for. Kay?

From ultima7


Some quotes from Celebdaq's general news page:-

"...today’s Daily Express and Daily Mail have snaps of Princess Anne’s media friendly daughter hanging out with her boyfriend and baby cousin, Prince Harry."

She's dating her cousin?? O_O Her cousin, HARRY? Now, although this isn't technically illegal, and I could understand it happening in some backwater inbred village in the middle of nowhere... aren't royalty (and thereabouts) supposed to be damned careful what they do/say/etc? Surely dating one's cousin is a... dangerous move?? O_o

The new post goes on a little, then says:-
"Relaxed and happy, the threesome are pictured..."

...and I stopped reading. Right there.

A couple quotables

From prozacsaint, in regard to being named as a baby:

As it turns out, my dad was watching tv one day, and Bonanza was on. "Ben Cartwright" was one of the actors, and the name stuck with him, should the first born be born with a purple-helmeted love warrior.

16 years later, my first job was at Bonanza, the buffet/steakhouse. Talk about mystical significance!!!

And from hyperbole:


Hey guys, if you're having a wedding anytime soon, invite me. I am the ultimate usher. I put those uppity old people in their place, literally. "No lady, you can't sit there, it's not your row". Zip your lip before I break your hip. One old man changed seats after the service started, the cunning bastard. I got the last laugh though. I went into the reception room and stole every single cashew from those mixed bowls. Then some lady's kid and I played with action figures and I knocked some punch over with gambit but blamed it on the kid because he was 2 and didn't know how to talk. Then we came home and mike challenged me to some boxing video game, and I head butted him to death with lennox lewis. Today was a good day.

Two for the price of one!

ww1614:

During the commercial break, my husband and I started to make out a bit (what can I say--it was late and we were giggly after the Colbert bit) and the Daily Show came back on, and my husband said, "we can't fondle each other while we're watching Clinton!" And I said, "of course we can! This is what Clinton would want us to do!"

I just had a fortune cookie for a snack, and it contained three fortunes, in this order:

You will travel far and wide, both business and pleasure.
A nice cake is waiting for you.
Wish you a good journey.

So I get to go somewhere and have cake! I'm sad to report that the cookie did not include my intinerary, so I don't know where the cake is. I hope that it's still fresh when I get there.

Talk about a Sweet 16....

From bittersweetrain, reporting on her birthday loot.

I also got some jewelery from the parentals as well as a little shimmery puff thing. This woman that I know somewhat well from my building gave me a black rhinestone thong. "I know you have a wild side in you."

In addition with the other responses to this, people who smoke, drink, or do drugs generally aren't snooty about it (unless they're in high school and feel cool), and they CERTAINLY don't claim it's healthy for them, despite the weight loss benefits associated with all three.

"Hey, I've lost ten pounds since I started smoking! You should try it!"

"I've been drinking heavily lately, so I puke a lot! I've lost tons of weight by only partially digesting my food! Best diet ever!"

"Heroin! Woo!"

Meta-metaquotes'd!

This conversation is just too good not to warrant a quote!

Are they marketing themselves to a certain target audience? Like... say, evil overlords or sorcerors seeking to summon demons from hell?

Arizona Livin'

My first post. I thought this was amusing

Today I saw a tumbleweed crossing the road while I was driving. I felt like a lone rider galloping on the noble Chevy Blazer steed and listening to that same ol' cowboy tune.

Welcome back to Arizona cowgirl.
