THE GREAT SEVEN-FOOT GHOST HEIST
Keeping in line with this week's theme of humor, I came across this vid and just had to share it with you. I thought it was hilarious (although I'm sure it wasn't quite so much at the time) and I think we can all relate to this person's experience because we've probably had similar experiences of our own with mail order companies.
This particular topic concerns a certain "Seven-foot Ghost" that was sold through many companies, mostly in comic books, with such stand-up names as Honor House Products Co. (hah!), and even the ubiquitous Johnson Smith Company. I've included some examples of the ads, so you can get an idea of what was offerred . . . and what was received.
