    That freezer won't cool you down :)

    Freezers only cool what's inside. Like this model, they put out a lot of heat on the outside.

    The $99 model has a high maintenance cost.

    The odd thing about the Latin text is, it's actually Latin. Not butchered Latin, correct Latin. Cicero, De Finibus Bonorum et Malorum I, 33. (I've been known to abuse In Catilinam i as lorem ipsum myself, that's why I suspected it might be him.)

    What, you want the $19.99 model? Seriously, dude, if it's useful as a refrigerator, it's not going to let you get away without the worst ear-bashing you've ever had in your life. "Why haven't you taken the out-of-date veg from the greens drawer? Have you noticed how badly that limberger stinks? ..." and so on.

    Reminds me of the Chubby Brown joke: "The only difference between my wife and the fridge is that the fridge doesn't f@rt when I take my meat out."

    All refrigerator models on that page, especially the $19.99 one, do not come with the illustrated contents. You have to provide your own edibles for storage in the item.

    Maybe someone at Sears was going through a nasty divorce. I can hear the conversation now:

    Judge: And what is your reason for wanting a divorce.

    Husband: Your Honor, she's turned into a frigid b***h.

    Judge: Prove it.

    Husband, holding up phone: She's so cold Sears is selling her as a refrigerator.

    Judge: Divorce granted. <bangs gavel>

    Well, you won't have your email template ready, Paul C. This “lorem ipsum” starts out just fine, but then it patters off into ... weird wrongness.

  • Your Name (unregistered) in reply to RLB

    Nope, the latin used (here) is butchered. For instance, there's not latin word "nonummy" or "ullamcorper", and "volutpat" contains transposed letters.

    Something similar to the 50 Cent AKA 41.66 rupee one also crops up if you watch BBC TV with subtitles for the hearing-impaired: almost any time pounds are mentioned as a measure of weight, the subtitles make it a £-sign followed by the amount.

    I see the CVS message whenever I get my prescriptions filled there. The first time I saw the message, I asked why doesn’t the screen have a “No” option. I do not agree with the terms related to “marketing messages” on the screen. I got the same little print out, followed the instructions, and tried to cancel text messages. I say I tried because I still get the texts from CVS but so far none have been marketing messages. I’m sure who ever programmed this screen asked about putting a “No” button but was over ruled by marketing. I still go CVS because it’s close to my home and the people there are great. Nonetheless, I always get the little print out because I’m not going to press the “Yes” button on this screen.

    Speaking of 50 cent (€0.43), has anyone ever noticed that Flava Flav's clock always reads 11:25 (4.75 mh)? Just my 2 cents (¥ 2.24)

    At this stage does anyone at Sears really care what they're doing?

    Except for the first word "lorem", that should have been "dolorem" but the first person who used this text made an error in cutting it, and amazingly enough, this error propagated wherever and whenever.

    Sears has hit rock bottom and will to any thing even selling sex to save them self's.

    That's the Schneider one. I was talking about the Yahoo? one. There are two samples of Latin in this article, one butchered, one real.
