Boxing Day, eh? Anybody Up For An Update On What Is Going On In Luminousland... Anybody Up For Actual Fisticuffs and Knuckles Sandwiches As Well?!?
So... I have succumbed to my old temptations of trying to write send-up songs... but not for The Temptations, no! *lol* That was to the tune of "Do They Know It's Christmas Time", by the way... in case you weren't able to tell, folks!
Nothing new to report on my one-man war on the triple "d" effect (dweebs, druggies and dumba$$es... one could amalgamate it into the acronym "duds", hmm?) - FOR NOW that is! I stand in full readiness to do some heavy-duty clobbering - yeah! :)
I did not feel, quite obviously as understandably, like partaking of the Boxing Day offerings today - as clearly demonstrated by the lyrics posted here, I am simply not in the mood. Some who did are regretting it already - and not just because they got a killer deal... on a crappy product! The Russian equivalent of "attention K-mart shoppers" in St. Petersburg got a nasty surprise when a strange "garlic scented" gas invaded their respiratory system... a whopping 95% of the people who breathed in the gas stayed hospitalized (95% - the kind of percentage you will NEVER see advertised off any regular prices - not even on Boxing Day!). The incident is NOT a terrorist attack though (shoot) but merely "malicious competition" between two retail giants in Russia! Sheesh! How pathetic is THAT? Couldn't they have tried a more "aggressive" publicity campaign first - before resorting to this sort of aggressiveness, huh?!?
Although, to tell the truth, I have expected to see something like that happen between Zellers and Wal-Mart for a loooooooong time now... No amounts of publicity will overturn the public's perception that they "will pay less" at Wally's place... Hence, I was so sure that Zeddy was gonna go medieval on that over-rated smiley! (Sort of like he did on Marty... the K-mart Kat? When Zeddy was through with him , he was no longer Marty but the Martyr...! *LOL*)
Maybe one day... before Zeddy goes belly up... at least some water balloons thrown at the tall grey wall of any Wal-Mart outlet... hmm?
