YSaC, Vol. 1093: Meme week Day 3: Armoire

2011 October 5

For today’s meme, we bring you – Armoire! Everyone’s read “The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe,” right? So one of these MUST go to Narnia. Let’s see what we have…

TV ARMUOIR


tv armouir for sale ,exc. condtion , no scratches dark stain color 28”widex 24”depth x 54”high call1-###-###-#### ask for richard , will deliver for a small fee, has shelf for tv and bottom shelf for accessories

Oh, I read about these! Armuoirs hide in the tops of trees, shout “Help, Help” and when you look up, they jump down on you! They’re like Heffalamps.

Let’s try another.

SAUDER ARMARIO


HELLO I HAVE A SAUDER WARDROBE/STOARAGE CABINET ARMARIO FOR SALE BRAND NEW IN BOX NEVER OPENED. CALL ###-###-####

“It’s-a me! Ar-mario!”

No thinly disguised Christian metaphors or frozen satyrs here. What else?

Armorie computer desk – $75


“Armorie computer desk opens to use computer and closes to hide suff inside all wood. It is very nice and a super cheap price. We are downsizing so cannot use it. I am sorry I do not have pic cause I cannot figure out how to make them small enough to download. If your interested give me a call and come by and see it ###-###-####. I would take 50.00 if you have someone to move my new one in my house. (Its on the porch now) Thanks”

This was in that Stevie Wonder song, right? With the piano keys? I don’t remember exactly how it goes. That, or I’ve deliberately blacked it out. Probably that one.

OK, one more try, and I’ll give up on ever getting me some of that alternate dimensional Turkish Delight. (Note: not a euphemism.)

large amore dresser – $75


It is missing one nob, but is only a dallar or so at manards or so. It aslo has a small scratch on the back. I am firm on the price becase new I paid 800 so you would be getting a great deal. Only call if you are willing to pay the full amount.

Please bring another person with to carry. It is
heavy , also have a large vechicle to bring it home in.

If interested please call heather at ###-###-####

Aslo! Aslo is like Aslan, right! The problem is that this one only goes to Narnia or so, and unfortunately, the “or so” includes Xanth. And frankly, even I can’t handle that many puns.

Oh well. Maybe some day I can go to Detroit.

Thanks for getting my hopes up, Brent, Susan, and er, us!

    Ah, the ever-popular amore dresser! You don’t just keep your clothes in it, you can do things con amore on it once you take your clothes off! Ah, memories.

    Er. Is that just me?
    I’ll be over in the corner with my coffee slice, then.

        Ghostie, people think the extra chrome is just decoration, but they’re places you can tie things down. Good looking and useful – just like I like my guys.

    So, this is totally unrelated to this post, sorry, but I just had to share:

    I occasionally browse PAN (passive aggressive notes) and comment on the funnier entries. But, lately, it’s gotten less snarky and more whiny. The entries AND the comments. But especially the comments. It’s like everyone over there is super sensitive and a little butthurt.

    So, I dared to mention in a comment that I was disappointed by the abundance of whines and lack of good comedy. I mentioned that PAN used to be really funny, and that the comments at YSAC were much funnier.

    I got a very defensive response back, and a blatant criticism of YSAC. Which, quite frankly, sort of proves my point, lol.

    So, in case you weren’t aware, there is apparently a heavy competition between PAN and YSAC — but it could be entirely one-sided. Thought you ought to know. =P

      Interesting. Ghostwriter certainly seems to know a lot about YSaC history and lore.

      For the record, I love Passive-Aggressive Notes, and used to comment over there regularly before YSaC took off and I didn’t have any time to do anything else. Plus we still get a lot of traffic from the link in their blogroll. So I’m not going to enter into a land war in Asia.

      They have their style of posts, and their style of comments, and we have ours; it’s perfectly fine for someone to prefer the environs over there rather than here. And if they do prefer it over there, I’m fine with them staying there.

        So many adores for the PB ref. Also – why does everyone on the internets think that everyone else needs to enjoy the same things as them? And why do they read sites they don’t enjoy? I agree with the Llamanun – I think it’s a little odd that Ghostwriter knows so much about YSaC and yet seems to dislike the site so strongly. Maybe they had an anti-ungulate religious conversion? There’s plenty of stuff on teh interwebs (and on tv, in movies, print, song etc.) that I don’t enjoy, so I don’t engage with it. I’m currently successfully ignoring an entire 6-week-long World Cup happening in my city (except for helping my friends play hunt-the-cute-foreigners at the weekends, natch)!!

          I know, I don’t get it either. I used to like PAN a lot more. My comment on that site was referring to the fact that I’ve noticed the comedy has gone downhill. That is all. I LOVE the notes posted — most of the time. The “Tomato Thief” was downright hilarious! But, the comments have gone from witty and sarcastic to whiny and boring. It’s a little disappointing. I see so much potential there! Oh well, I like this community better, so I’ll keep commenting here if that’s alright. I agree Llamanun, no war necessary. =)

        Well, maybe I shouldn’t have left a link. My thinking was maybe some of them might wander over here, see how cool it is (at least the funnier ones) and hang out here and contribute to the greatness that is YSaC. If our wee site benefits per visit, then the more traffic the better.

        I don’t think any trolls would be happy here. Surely we could beat them off.
