my halloween costume is awesome.
because, well, my halloween costume is awesome,
but also because it features a component that warrants a warning such as this:

Such archaic terminology. do people even conduct battles anymore? my guess is no. mostly because nothing is durable enough any longer.

/intrigued.

Linda said...

this warning is obviously for those sunday-in-the-park people.

I love this warning label so much!!!

what i want to know is how did they definitively determine that this is, in fact, not durable enough for battle? did people have to die?

Les Savy Ferd said...

i just enjoy the phrasing. Imagine it in any other context.

Product is a costume accessory and is not ______ for ______.

Just about anything you put in those fields is a mad-libs recipe for awesome.

Linda said...

He's right!!

"Product is a costume accessory and is not jumping for joy."

"Product is a costume accessory and is not manufactured for duchesses."

"Product is a costume accessory and is not trix for silly rabbits."

I will argue the "people do not get into battles" point. Caro knows why.

oline said...

i do not know why. and why is it every time you make some enigmatic allusion i always assume it has to relate to your uncle who lost his arm in the twinkie factory?

Linda said...

"Product is a costume accessory and is not awesomeified for scooby snacks."

Meggie said...

Caro--I was referring to Mike.

Not everything relates back to the fake uncle who lost an arm in a twinkie factory. It was so great though that you bought that story for YEARS!

oline said...

that would hurt my heart except i know you were the Last Person In The World to know S's secret. so ha!

Meggie said...

Hey! It is because I don't care about little trivial things. I care about the person.

oline said...

whereas i, love, am all about the little trivial things.
