I had this one today. :lol:

This makes perfect sense. You looked a radio with a veneer that simulated something outdoorsy. Therefore, they assumed that you were the outdoors type, probably a hunter who took a dog with him, and therefore a potential heartwork consumer.

Have you had any weird ones? :D


Also completely understandable. Women who buy breastmilk containers are obviously staying up all night with the little crying colicbabes, making it necessary for them to consume mass quantities of coffee to stay awake during the day.

These associations really work. I'm reading a book about statistics that said that Target (a U.S. department store) was able to figure out that pregnant women tended to buy certain kinds of items (like unscented lotions, vitamin supplements and bags of cotton balls). Armed with this information, they began sending women who bought these products coupons for baby-related items like diapers and baby bottles. Apparently, one day a father came into a Target store complaining that Target was sending his fifteen year old daughter coupons for cribs and baby clothes--how could they do such a thing when she was still in high school? When the store manager called the father later to apologize, he sheepishly admitted that apparently things were going on his house that he didn't know about. :lol:

This might have come up before,but since a search for gummy bears here did not show it...
There are some hilarious reviews on amazon as well (you might not want to read these if you have an easily upset stomach btw! ;) ) :

Anyone foolish enough to eat 5lb of sugar-free sweet at one sitting is asking for trouble....

She didn't! She only ate 20 of them. And gave the rest to her poor sister.

No idea what the sister did to deserve that.....

Oops! I've just re-read it...
Wonder what they have in them? I believe that some "diabetic" jams contain a sweetener that has laxative properties.

(Interestingly there is a little note on the right hand side of that screen that offers used bags of these things!)
