Summit Up 11-3-10: Celebrating underwear that’s fun-ta-wear
Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that’s so happy Election Day is over! Sure, we love the celebration of the democratic process and all, but we’re ready for a break – at least a few months before the 2012 crapola starts clogging the airwaves and post office boxes.
So we have to say that, in some 21 years of doing Summit Up columns, we cannot recall a single instance where someone has sent us a photo of a bunch of brassieres with the name of our paper intermingled therein.
We like it! Thanks to the ladies at Curves for thinking of us as they adorned these ladies’ undergarments with festive hoo-ha’s to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And if anyone else out there – for any reason whatsoever – wants to incorporate any part of the SDN with other undergarments – male or female – for artistic effect, feel free to send them our way at email@example.com. Just, as Rodney Dangerfield said in Caddyshack, “Keep it clean, keep it clean!”
Hey, does anyone out there need any dry boletus edulis and other dry mushrooms?
We get a lot of crap e-mail, like everyone, but one we find somewhat mysterious is the one that comes almost every single stinkin’ day from Chun Bao Foodstuffs, which is apparently a company in China that sells lotsa mushrooms. Sez here they “would sincerely like to build a corporation relationship with your business, and supply you with the very products and prices you just need.”
We like mushrooms as much as the next guys/gals, but these folks are selling them by the boatload – literally – and we couldn’t possible figure out what to do with that many shrooms. So if anyone out there can use them, talk to the Chun Bao folks and, while you’re at it, tell them to stop sending things to us here at Summit Up!
And what about these kinds of e-mails?
“Nice to meet you, How are you and how is your work? i hope that all is well with you, My name is miss Jeniferl ,i know that you may be suprise on how i got your email today, isaw your email when i was browsing looking for honest partner,then i feel to drop this few line to you , and i will like you to contact me through my email so that we can know each other and exchange our pictures, and we maybecome partner.
“Remember the distance does not matter what matters is the love we share with each other.
“i am waiting to hear from you soon.
“kiss regards Miss Jenifer”
Other than our suspicion that this lady may also be sending us mushroom solicitations, we do like the “kiss regards” thing. Kinda cute and awkward at the same time.
Anyway, we’re off to go fix our spam blocker …
