As I was driving through town yesterday running errands and looking for a new mouse (the old one was 5 years old and still works at a level of 95%, I’d say, but that missing 5% is just so frustrating…), I saw three Statues of Liberty, one Captain America, and two homeless guys holding signs, all adverting for some store or another. Since when did that become a good way to advertise? Are they going for the pity vote, or what? All it did to me was bug me. Since when did “mascot on a street corner” become good career choice?
Oh, and I did get a new mouse. It’s amazing how far we’ve come in 5 years in regard to mouse technology–my old one had a left, right, and click wheel, and the new one has a left, right, and a click wheel. Sometimes I just feel let down by the future.
