VALUE CITY FURNITURE
Before you read this you might want to watch these videos. Here is a link to some Value City Furniture commercials:
Is it just me or are you also mesmerized by those dancing people on the Value City Furniture commercials. I can’t totally put my finger on it, but I think their dancing is so intriguing because they either are dancing without a drop of alcoho or they are all suffering from some type of chronic muscle spasms that looks like dancing. I suspect the latter. It’s like those people that stand outside the business they work for with sandwich-board signs on them waving around to get your attention. I want to look, but I don’t. And of course, I end up looking…intently. It’s just like a song that gets stuck in your head.
All I can say is they better end those commercials because I can’t concentrate on what I’m doing when it’s on. The gal gyrating next to a recliner looks like she is developing relations with it. Then a guy pops in and it looks like he is doing the chicken dance or possibly putting out a fire. Even the kids that are dancing seem like their are in a zombie voodoo trance while jerking around as if their body was possessed by some illicit being or they are preparing themselves to have a sensational bowel movement.
Remember when they had Abe Lincoln and George Washington dancing in their one commercial during their President’s Day sale? I will never look at them the same now. I don’t want to see my Presidents doing the electric boogaloo. Or dancing around furniture for that matter.
I’d like to see the auditions to be a dancer in their commercials. Ok, send out auditioner #1. Nope, he has too much rhythm. #2. She’s ok, but is better off auditioning for a music video. Hey now. Dancer #3 looks like he either is vigorously looking for a quarter he dropped or we have ourselves our newest dancer. And what do we have here with dancer #4. I’m either going to see someone give birth or we got a fresh new dancer.
TOP TEN WORDS I’D LIKE TO USE MORE IN MY VOCABULARY
Now I will use all the words above in a story.
Me and Snooki were shopping at a haberdashery. As we traipse in I realized that I didn’t have my daily recommended allowance of riboflavin. I can tell because my esophagus gets a little wonky when I don’t. It was happenstance that whilst we walked in the store I saw my friend Paco. I finagled a handkerchief out of my back pocket and gave it to him. Don’t worry, I just washed it and maybe had only two sneezes in it. I noticed that Snooki smelled a little lemony. My spleen ruptured. End of the story.

NEW GIFT CARD RULES
New rules started for gift cards purchased after August 22nd. Some of the keys things that changed are that gift cards now must hold their value for 5 years, BUT they can lose value after 1 year if the card isn’t used during that year. From there an issuer can hit you up with a monthly fee that will cause the card to lose value. So blow through your current gifts cards. Most have 1-800 numbers on the card where you can check you balance. Make it a gift card week because you’re special!
