Not smiling. A full-out belly laugh.
Just went to the mailbox to get today's offerings...instead of political propaganda, we're deluged with holiday catalogues of every form and fashion, for every conceivable item one can dream up.
Opened the Bed Bath & Beyond one and, I'm sorry, someone missed the boat on how one particular product "shows."
The ad photo features some youngster smiling and having a great time playing with an "As Seen on TV" item called Squishy Sand.
It's touted as being incredibly soft and moldable, won't make a mess, yada, yada, yada. Hmmm? Sand = no mess? I'd like to see that.
The only thing is...
The photo shows this little girl playing with a medium-brown mixture of, well, um... Let's just say it can be found in many a baby's diaper.
It gets better. There's even a nicely coiled pile of the stuff at the left of the child's hands.
And, guess what? For the amazing price of $14.99 you get 1.5 pounds of sand and 3 tools. Sounds like a deal to me.
Where are the marketing folks? I won't be able to stop laughing all day. I don't think Santa is going to leave this toy at our house.
