68. Business as usual?

From my video store buying group comes this story (No link due to password protection):

"SIGN IN A STORE WINDOW

"WE WOULD RATHER

DO BUSINESS WITH 1000 ALQAEDA TERRORISTS

THAN WITH ONE SINGLE AUSTRALIAN SOLDIER!"

This sign was prominently displayed in the window of a business in

Campbelltown, New South Wales, Australia.

You are probably outraged at the thought of such an

Inflammatory statement.

However, we are a society which holds Freedom of Speech

As perhaps our greatest liberty.

And after all, it is just a sign.

You may ask what kind of business would

dare post such a sign.

Answer: A Funeral Home

(Who said morticians had no sense of humour?)

You gotta love it!!!

God Bless Australia"

:shock:

No No Camy, I didn't make that very clear did I?We own one video store which buys groups.So far we have groups of old ladies and groups of people who have had frontal lobotomies. These form the basis of our store's membership.We have a smaller number of cute guys who look like they are members of my ideal fantasy group, but we generally try to keep them from joining either of the first two groups above. I would encourage them in being members of interest, but my partner is not at all impressed by my desire to increase the size of our members, unless we are home alone.We also sell and rent DVDs to the above groups, but mostly we are just here to answer their stupid questions. :hehe:

The other day, Des told me his boyfriend was going to go polish his DVDs. It was rather strange he'd polish his gold lam? undershorts, but then, you never know about these Australian fellows.......I still need to work on my timing.

Does he polish his undershorts while still wearing them? You know, gold doesn't tarnish, and doesn't really need polishing. Just exactly which part does he spend most of his time rubbing?But my point was--I keep getting distracted by visions of him assidously rubbing on those shorts--if he has to polish them, they may not be true gold lame. They might be something cheaper.It may be, Des, that you're hooked up with someone who has fool's gold in his shorts.C

Let's just say that it is my job to fool around with the gold in his shorts. :hehe:

Best blog entry to date. Is there an award to nominate to as such? FREAKING PRECIOUS!I used to own a video store in a small, Small, SMALL town. I feel your pain. Maybe that's why I find it so spectacular, but I'd still nominate it if so.Oh, and the sign............LMAO

Thanks Caylor. You probably realise that our store is an independent small store that specialises in Art-house and foreign titles. This gives a niche market that the big chains can't manage with their "most popular" attitude.So we are small, small store in a small minded city at the edge of civilisation just before the Australian outback.I have often toyed with the idea of a sign in our window which would read,"Last stop for quality movies before Europe."

I thought gold was heavy and had no idea you could make underwear out of it, either. :icon1:What a wonderful institution of pedagogy your blog is, and how I'm enjoying fondling my new thesaurus. :hehe:

I don't know about you but I think gold is the proper setting for the family jewels. :hehe:

Are you referring to the big chain stores, Cole? I find that big chains are way too weighty, and little ones are much nicer. On the other hand, I haven't actually found any little chain stores, unless you want to count jewellery stores. The best I can find for lightweight securement is nylon webbing, the odd rope place, and of course, velcro. Unlike chains, which can be securely fastened with a screw link, webbing needs either some sewing to fasten the velcro, or some kind of slide on snap fasteners. The locking ones are pretty strong, can be 'locked' quickly, and can't be pulled apart but they're not good for heavy or unwilling loads. The real advantage though, is that there isn't that irritating clinking all the time, and the webbing doesn't cause any damage from 'digging in' if something soft is being restrained. I've heard that one can protect against injury by using soft cloth, such as fleece, directly against that which is being restrained.
