Banzi slide is small or GREG IS HUGE

Greg had a great day at baseball, winning the coveted game ball. Afterwards we went to Toy R Us so that he could use his money to buy some Gogo Crazy Bones. While there, Miss Sally asked us to get a Slip-n-Slide.

Instead of going with a well known, brand name, I went with the Banzi 16' Soak N Splash with Body Board (sale price $6.99.)

I knew this was a good buy because the kids on the front of the box were having an awesome time.

At home in the backyard, something was amiss. I unfolded the slide and immediatley found that the end with the water collection splash enabler was much smaller than expected. The box showed a kid sliding into a small baby pool sized basin. This was much smaller.

Here is the slide in action with the box for reference. This was take number 122 to get the photo just right.

Greg is HUGE!

You can see the Greg's hand reaches all the way to the back when his shoulders are at the edge of the pool area. A total misrepresentation. That's something I would expect when paying $4.99 but NOT $6.99!

I wanted to see if it was possible to get the shot on the box, so I got down very low and got the box angle.

I then added Greg.

Out of Focus Virtual Greg looks like he is having an awesome time.

Bobby is Measured

I think I promised Bobby that I wouldn't publish this. I also think promises have a 18 month shelf life.

What else can you trim?

My favorite beauty medicine doctor had another great (horrific) ad in the local free paper:

I thought that perhaps there could be something trimmed around the holidays besides the tree, so I fixed the ad for her:

Honed for the holidays!

But now I'm kinda grossed out by what the white specks could be.

Creation Museum - Dinosaur Extinction


I have to bet that it was the rugged, good looks of that hunter that killed off the dinosaurs. Or his complete gayness.

I assume that it was Photoshop the actually made the dinosaurs disappear.

My entry on Fark for a Photoshop post.

I just realized my ball is the mouse and that's not how it works...
