Shred Important Papers Quickly and Easily (23 Jul 2008 at 00:16)
Hey, I'm back! I was without internet at home for a week. Now it's working again, and since I just had my scanner out for scanning some stuff (I was cleaning my room and I have a new strategy for dealing with all of the junk I've got but can't bear to throw away, which is to scan it or photograph it so that it fits in a smaller space, i.e. on the hard drive. More on that topic soon.) and then I found this funny advertisement:

Shred Important Papers


I love this product. Aside from looking like it was invented with the Photoshop clone tool, have you ever tried cutting through an envelope with a pre-approved credit card in it, even with a single pair of blades on some heavy duty Fiskars? It ain't that easy—and with this Edward Scissorhands it will be five times as hard. Those envelopes routinely set my electric shredder on fire.

But anyway, the real thing I love about this ad is the suggestion to "Shred Important Papers Quickly & Easily". I don't think important is the right choice of word here.

But... it WILL shred important papers quickly and easily -- as well as unadvisedly.
