I am definitely in the wrong business.

I have, right here beside me at this very moment, a waste basket which is absolutely FULL of virtually identical objects to those displayed.

So, please support home industries - send me just $25 and I'll send you one of those, fresh made, post free.
For those in the UK, the price is a knock down 17.50

(all the way to the bank!)

Dear etaoin: I worked over twenty years in a psychiatric hospital. We had a muralist
who created spectacular works of art, unfortunately in monochrome ordinarily used
on bumf. The janitors were not gruntled critics. Thank goodness they saw their duty
and did it.

Ah, but I'm sorry, Rhuby - you just don't have the same je ne sais quoi (and I sure as hell don't know what it is).


Love this, nuncle!

Hmmm, what are universal equivalents of "selling coals to Newcastle"? (as the mark of an excellent salesman)

Although I have heard of "selling coals to Newcastle", this USn would more likely say "selling a refridgerator to an Eskimo" or "selling ice to Eskimos".
