Sears Optical Raccoon Ad

This ad cracks me up!

It reminds of the time years ago when I lived in Back Bay. I kept seeing / hearing an animal scurrying along on a little ledge outside my window. Normally and always at night, I would catch just a bare glimpse of it as it passed – never saw much of anything but a flash of fur going by.

Then one night I was by the window and saw it walk past. Thinking it was a cat from a neighbor’s apartment, I did much as this woman does to try to call it back – making little cooing noises and whatnot. It finally obliged and peeked back around the corner of the window screen and whoa! there was a big ass raccoon staring right at me 6 inches away.

Raccoon!?! Hmmm. Hadn’t considered that one.

I was shocked and stumbled backwards. I think he was shocked, too, cause his little eyes seemed to bug out.

It was very funny. Needless to say, I didn’t seek him out again and made sure my screens were securely in place.

Lame geek humor, but still this is funny. Adapted from version received via email – one of many versions floating around.


Dear Tech Support:Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources.

In addition, Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now closely monitors all system activities. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Football 5.0, Hunting and Fishing 7.5, and Racing 3.6 no longer run at all, crashing the system whenever selected.

Despite several attempts, I am not able to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while trying to run my favorite applications. I’m thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but the uninstall program for Wife 1.0 isn’t working. Please help!

One of several quotes shown on the cover:

“Today, I was on a small plane. A flight attendant told us that there was too much weight in the front of the plane and they needed 3 people to move to the back of the plane. I volunteer and walk to the back. She says, “Okay, we’re going to need 1 more person.” original source. Date: 30 May 2009.
