Oh My.

Yesterday was fun. Took the kiddies up to their school fair. Nice day, lots of fun.


One of the 'inflatable' attractions caught my attention.

It was some kind of a long submarine or something, that the kids enter at one end, bounce around and such, and exit at the other end.

I was at the end, considering trying to get a picture of a very fast moving target as he exits the attraction. Didn't get that picture, but took a picture of the 'exit' anyway.

Take a look at this.

I'm thinking the picture speaks for itself, but I need to be sure.

It's not just me, right?



(If you have any good ideas for a name for this ride, post it in the comments. Somehow I think "The Huge Blue Schong" is a little too on-the-nose...)

The "EXICTMENT" Continues To Build...

I've always been a stickler for spelling, proofreading, and related activities.

Yes, I KNOW that many of you are not. Sorry.

However, even those of you who favour 'creative' spelling would probably agree:

Shouldn't you proofread marketing campaign advertisements BEFORE putting them on bus shelters, billboards and the like? ESPECIALLY if the word with the typo is designed to be one of the most prominent words in the ad?

Behold what I discovered this weekend while humping cake and presents in and out of the local sports facility for a kids' party:

I just *had* to take a picture.

And I'm sure that the Head Shoppe people were very "exicted" to see their advertising dollars at work.

Unless they didn't notice. Yet.
