I'm probably the last person on the internet to run into this, but I love it.
Click the link for the full screen version, even better with nice speakers.
So as your consumer electronics adviser, I am advising you to donate your
current VCR to a grate resident, who will laugh sardonically and hurl it
into a dumpster. Then I want you to go out and purchase a vast array of
8-millimeter video equipment.
… OK! Got everything? Well, *too bad, sucker*, because while you were
gone the electronics industry came up with an even newer format that makes
your 8-millimeter VCR look as technologically advanced as toenail dirt.
This format is called “3.5 hectare” and it will not be made available until
it is outmoded, sometime early next week, by a format called “Elroy”, so
*order yours now*.
