Truth in advertising

Truth in advertising is such a rare thing. I particularly like the reply to the VP of Engineering from Polk Audio. You can only wonder if it was a real email or somebody just trying to yank his chain.

We're on InTeRnEt TiMe, and that's one minute too late, buddy.

Chances are the Polk VP actually emailed him. If this is a mini-meme, it'd come to Polk's notice right quick (I know whenever any Yahoo meme goes out everyone sends it to me, asking if I've seen it). I bet he replied. I wouldn't be surprised if Polk Folx (he hee) up the auction price to make it all look better, like 'normal' people think the speakers are good, so don't listen to this ranter.

I've had a pair of those speakers. He's 100% correct.

Well that goes a long way towards explaining your musical tastes, EBK.

There is nothing wrong with enjoying a little Olivia Newton John every once in a while damnit!

I'm enjoying myself some Olivia Newton John too, but the link's not work-safe so I won't include it.

At this moment, high bidder is non-paying-bidder-just-ask-anyone. Check out his feedback.
