Push My Buttons

We were perusing the aisles at the Container Store the other day, and landed transfixed in front of a display of magnets in all shapes and sizes. [I am always looking for really good strong magnets so all the crap on the refrigerator doesn't keep falling off.] I looked at these earnest reminder buttons, and said to my husband "what it's missing is a WTF". The stock person behind me howled with laughter.

I mean, don't you need a WTF magnet?

You know that line from Field of Dreams?

If you build it, he will come.
If you think it, you will find it, at Zazzle.





< rant > And no, no one paid me for blathering about buttons. Did I need to say that? I totally understand disclosing relationships - but do I also have to disclose that there is NO relationship if I talk about any kind of product at all? If I tell you that I'm sitting here wearing Danskos, is that a product placement? No, of course not. I bought the damned shoes. I can't even remember where. And quoting a 1989 movie? Sometimes this stuff makes my head hurt. You know the difference between editorial, advertorial, and advertising, right? You know that I'll tell you if someone pays me a huge amount of money to write a post, right? Okay. I'm glad to have that off my chest. < /rant >

I wear Danskos because I'm too lazy-assed to tie shoes. Unfriend me if you must.

I feel like I missed something because I'm not getting the Danskos reference--but the button is genius.

I have a magnet you'd like. It says "I've found Jesus. He was behind the couch the whole time."

Need that button for my office. Along with one that says 'whatever.'

In fact, I'd like a four pack of just WTF magnets. To hell with those other ones. I'd like one that says "Sigh. Again?" on it.

Love the WTF! as for your rant it would never occur to me to think of product placement (sorta)post. Those are easy to spot out there in internet world. Actually, I have discovered some great products only due to other bloggers posting about them.

Yep. I do know all that. And thanks. Next time I'm in NY, in addition to "lunch with Maggie" I'll go magnetting.

;-)

Love the wtf button. That's a must have. (also loved mayberry's magnet)

And no need to disclose that there's nothing to disclose :)
