Type-O Negated

Today it rained cats and dogs... from HEAVEN! The buckets and buckets of the filthy wet stuff had us in quite the funk. What to do? What to say? What to eat? What to headbutt? Josh found a moment's peace as he sanitized his desk area from Furious George's impending case of avian flu. George assured us he wasn't contagious but as they say when it comes to office sickness: Trust no one. A lil' rag, a lil' Clorox cleaner and the big fella had peace of mind. Oddly enough, Joshie being a veteran of seven catalogs (?), always pays special attention to the bullet points, as does Julie and it looked like Clorox had royally screwed theirs up. Julie demanded the Clorox bullet points be made an example of for the rest of the class. The Blog hemmed and hawed about posting a "direct shot across the bow of a megacorporation like Clorox" but Julie wouldn't take no for an answer as she retorted, "WE re-do our catalog bullet points so many times they read like mystic haiku whispered from Buddha's lips! The least these half-witted ninocompoops can do is make sure their bullet points don't read like all an e.e. cummings poem! GAHHHH!" So as I write these very words with Julie standing behind me hefting a billy club of some sort in a menacing fashion, let me extend this olive branch of "learning by example" to our good friends at Clorox and show them how a proper bullet point should look. For example, here is a set of bullet points for the Knog Big Dog messenger bag from the 2010 catalog:
And here is the "abomination of a set of bullet points" (Julie's words) in all its glories. Not the worst we've seen but you can tell they sent this packaging to Taiwan or China for production, seriously. You guys gotta be more vigilant. We're all in this together!

And yes, we did get a Noah's Ark full of fresh new Knog merch today including some BLACK Big Dog messenger bags and more Nerd computers than you can shake a stick at. Huzzah! More on that and the controversy that followed for tomorrow's post!
