Until this week when no one was even trying....
Phaedrous posted about several things he was thankful for. I commented by saying I was thankful for finding him in the blogosphere and some other things. With permission from him, here is part of the subsequent exchange.
He sent the following email:
You say the nicest things. I appreciate your companionship along the journey.
I wouldn't say them if I didn't mean them. I also thankful to be so warmly welcomed on the journey.
All pretty innocent, straightforward, stuff right? Of course gratitude is not the easiest thing for a marketer. They need to create dissatisfaction that drives demand for a product. What could Gmail's ad search possibly do with this?
Get ready. I am NOT making this up. You may love my memes (or hate them). And my twisted sense of humor has been the source of serious befuddlement to others for many years but this?? Even my warped mind never would have linked a couple of people appreciating each other with...
Bird-Diaper Avian Flight Suits Stylish flight suits for your bird. Protects your home! http://www.birddiaper.com/
They offer costumes from parakeet size to goose size. Now let me tell you, if you have never been around geese they are some of the nastiest birds you'd ever desire to get a strangle hold on. I would pay serious money to watch one of these birdbrain designers actually dress a goose in one of their creations.
On one page selling avian attire for smaller birds they want you to note that smaller costumes do NOT come with hats. Awwww man! But I want a beret for my budgie!!! Is it me, or does that just sound wrong on too many levels?
Oh the indignity of being Santa Macaw.
If you have a larger bird you can get this hot little biker bird ensemble Biker Birdie!Reduced from Regular Price of $36.99Code: L-BikerStarting at: $26.99
If they start offering French maid costumes and Avian dominatrix gear I am going to really wonder about these people.
