Friday Follies: Ep 1.3 – I am what I am

This evening I’m ringing up merchandise for customers, and I come across a very “self-actualized” baby walker. For some reason, I experience a fit of giggles because it sounds like this particular walker has major bragging rights and this box’s side panel is its dating ad.

The couple gives me a puzzled look and asks me, “Are you looking for one? This one’s ours, ya know?”

I was incredulous and dumbfounded. I actually found my personal Friday Follies treasure. I’m talking to myself, “ProsceniumΒ did tell me I was going to find something when I least expect it. Here it is!

I turn to the couple and ask them, ” Is it alright if I take a picture of this?”

The couple gives me a strange look. “Uh….Sure!” Possessively, they quickly put it in their cart and left as fast as they could as if I was going to change my mind and buy it from them.

This is what a confident walker strutting its stuff looks like!Β 
Snatch ’em off the shelves before someone else does!

    Now if EYE was the Ad man who came up with this gem of a piece (wash my mouth out before i slash my wrists!!) i woulda’ used the play on words and said ” I’m a COSco Walker ‘COS i dot dot dot.

    And i would not have said: ” …walker because…… because…” in the last 2 number points!

    But then i do know how to speak English correctly and i don’t know how to sell baby walkers for which i am duly thankful! πŸ˜‰

    (I could just see you cracking up!)

      πŸ™‚ LOL, you got some swagger!! πŸ˜€ The inner advertiser in you has a solid critique!! Redundancy can be a turn off? The use of slang in marketing has an interesting effect on the consumer base.

      1. Lwbut says:

        πŸ˜€ Yeah… overusing words is a definite turn off for me. πŸ˜‰ Adverts do it to the extreme.

        I’m OK with slang – if it’s used intelligently and not to shock or insult our intelligence (or sensibility). πŸ™‚

        Hmmm… Intelligence and Sensibility? there may be a book in that somewhere?? πŸ™‚

          I think the ghost of Jane Austen would be rolling around and laughing from her grave. “Hey you two! I already wrote Sense and Sensibility. Are you guys trying to reinvent the wheel here?” πŸ˜€

          1. Lwbut says:

            πŸ˜€ I guess that makes no Sense, huh? πŸ˜‰

  2. OMG too funny!πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚
