Cyber Monday, Part II

And this one really does deal with electronic retailing. We had hoped and tried to bring the "TurdMart" online today. Just didn't quite make it. Soon, it will be live, however, with an assortment of TFMR merchandise. In the meantime, I've decided to offer you a deal.

Over the past six months or so, I've gotten quite a few requests for "turd hats". Every time there's a contest, I get emails from folks wanting to know if they could simply buy one. Frankly, this cracks me up but...if there's actual demand...

So, here you go. The site could use some additional funding and it could also use some additional promotion. I'm uncomfortable simply coming to you with hat-in-hand again (no pun intended), so I'll make you a deal. From now until midnight EST on the 30th, I'll be accepting donations. Anyone who "feeds the turd" to the tune of $50 or more will receive their very own, 100% authentic, Turd-autographed, genuine, real deal, oversized yellow cowboy hat. Here's how it works:

1) Make a donation of at least $50 through DONATE button on the right side of the page. (Remember, The Turd is NOT a 501(c)3 so your donation is NOT tax-deductible.)

2) Enter your shipping address on the paypal form or email it to me.

3) Give me a couple of weeks to order the hats, sign them all, box them up and take them to a post office.

4) You receive an extremely valuable piece of yellow foam right before Christmas.

5) You become the envy of friends and family at all your holiday celebrations.

I honestly have no idea whether I'll be shipping 5 hats or 500. This could be fun or it might be the dumbest thing I've ever thought of. I might raise a little money but I also might get a little sick of running to the post office day and night. Oh well, the offer is out there. Do with it what you may. You have 41 hours.

TF

p.s. But wait, there's more! If you order now, we'll throw in a set of Ginsu Knives and a free "Clapper". No, not really. I'm just joking about that part. No knives and no clapper. Just a hat...if you want one.

Turd's Hat! :-)

Can you make a shirt that says the following:

"All I got this lousy cyber Monday was The Turd's Hat!"

I was just thinking about that

the irony that I have only purchased food today, and that is not included in inflation.

If you get around to doing

If you get around to doing video interviews, both you and your guest should wear "turd hats". I'll bet you could get Ned Naylor Leyland to wear one, he seems like a pretty good sport.

Who doesn't want a hat?

Of course you do. Just picture you and your fellow Turdites wearing a big yellow hat while they are posting away and the visual part of that is smile worthy in of itself.

Make a contribution to get a hat and join the crowd.

Everyone who hasn't and knows they should have done so by now, please show your appreciation and kick in what you can on a monthly basis if possible or just get it over with it.

Those that have and do, your awesome! Those that don't and can, please consider it.

Any of you long time lurkers (or even short term ones) just need to sign up and register and hop aboard. New blood is welcome and always needed. You have more to offer then you might realize. There are many "almost" newbies on here who blow me away with their passion and insight.

In my opinion, fifty cents a day to use this site and to gain the insight and useful knowledge of all the members plus everything that TF does is only $15 a month approx.

That's dirt cheap to hang here. Please consider the value and do what you can.

Thanks for considering it

(these statements do not reflect the opinion of the management and any resemblance to it is purely a ploy by DPH to get you to continue reading this until you realize your reading this for no reason)

Please contribute!

Hat

In for one! I feel like this should be posted on the slickdeals.net website as the "Deal of the Day". I can't wait for my hat. Thanks for everything you do! I don't know where I would be without you and the other Turdites!!

I love my ginsu knives

People keep giving me expensive knives, but when I have to cut a tomato or a bolt, I get out the ginsu!

I just did the PayPal donation, but there was no "shipping address" question (It is the same as my mailing address)

PM me if needed.

Stack Nickels! They are good for Inflation AND Deflation!
