Movin on up!

So the whole moving process is proving to be an adventure in stupidity in and of itself.

Exhibit A, a letter we recently received from a company call budget movers.

Okay, the name alone is questionable but the letterhead pretty much guarantees that they are going to either drop your isht or run off with it.

Exhibit B, a movers kit purchased from costco.

While the kit is seems rather innocuous, its contribution to the stupidity of society comes from a footnoted disclaimer hidden in the top right corner of the box.

"Truck not included." No kidding, sherlock. I was under the impression that the box which fit in the back of the imprezza also contained an 18 wheeler. I would give them points for the inclusion of a period. Then again, the glaring omission of a verb doesn't exactly necessitate the requirement for proper punctuation.

In totally unrelated news, I finally fell under Chester Cheetah's pizzalicious spell.

It was only a matter of time.

Finally, I will be on blog hiatus for the next two weeks as I will be in Europe in search of new and interesting 40s for next year's summer party.
