Get 'em while they're wee

This just arrived at my inbox, from my Amazon Associates Program (yes, I serve the Dark Lord, for he hath pulled my sales numbers out of the murky pits).

Subject line:

Amazing July Baby Sales

Wow! I thought that was illegal. But...what the hey? Free markets should be free, right?

Um...let's see, do you have anything in a green-eyed blonde, about twenty inches long and 8 pounds, 2 ounces? Oh, and I'll take a Cancer, please (I don't have the energy to keep up with a Leo). Non-colicky, if possible. *crosses fingers*

On second thought, if you have an advanced model, say...for instance...a med-school student specializing in plastic surgery or geriatrics, that'd be perfect.

Yeah, you'd better express ship it.

FINALLY, you're listening to a group I know. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'll give you points on Johnnie Cash, too.

Love 'em! I think, after long and arduous comparison though, I prefer Flogging Molly. More melodic.

Not that one can't love both equally.
