The Register ^ | 21st August 2009 | Dan Goodin

In a blunder that might top the Baby Shaker app on Apple's App Store, retailing giant Sears.com has been caught offering a Bar-B-Que grill specially designed to roast infants and other human morsels.

I wouldn’t have noticed without FR. I wouldn’t walk into a stinking Sears or read one of their ads if it was the last department store on earth.

Someone hacked into their website. Sears is not at fault, other than not having better website security.

That’s the official story. But if you were to do market research on the potential demand for a baby roaster, “accidentally” putting one on your website would be one way to do it.

That’s pretty messed up.

We got a fund raiser invitation at work once: A Barbecue to Benefit Babies, we all agreed it was better than A Benefit to Barbecue Babies.

"I want my baby back...baby back....baby back..."

I'll take a double order, with a side of prime rib to munch, while listening to the juke box....



I want my baby back
Gotta have my baby back
I miss her oh so much
Cain't live without her touch

I don't hardly know where to begin.
I remember, we were cruisin' home from the Beatles concert.
I'd had such a wonderful evenin' sittin' there watchin' my baby
screamin' and tearin' her hair out and carryin' on.
She was sooo full of life.
Then...

Well, we were about three miles from home when all of a sudden
it started to rain.

And I do mean rain - I couldn't hardly see nuthin'!
Well, we kept drivin' for about another mile when all of a sudden
I see this stalled car right smack in front of me!
Well, I wa'nt about to slam on the brakes 'cause I didn't have
none to start to with.
So I swerved to the left, and what do I see?
Some mush-head, on a motorsickle, headin' right at us!
And I knew at last, me and my baby were about to meet
the leader of the...

Wooooo-haaaaaa!

...pack.

Well, when I come to I looked around,
and there was the leader,
and there was the pack,

And over there was myyy baby.

And over *there* was my baby.

And WAAAY over there was my baby!

I want my baby back
Gotta have my baby back
I miss her oh so much
Cain't live without her touch

It's been many months now since that fateful night,
and you know somethin', I've tried, believe me I have tried -
but I just cain't make it without my baby.
So, I've decided I'm gonna have back her one way or another.

(Shoveling noises, followed by a hollow thumping))

Oh baby, I diiig you so much. A-heh-heh!
Hot dang - pay dirt!

(squeaking of hinges followed by sounds of scrabbling, then more squeaks & thump of lid closing; muffled voice continues) I got my baby back
Now I got my baby back
I love her oh so much
Cain't live without her touch
I got my baby back...

Sears makes up the difference between military pay and what employees earn from the company. While deployed, eligible employees also can continue participating in Sears’ life insurance, medical and dental programs for up to 60 months of military duty.

That Forrest Gump kin keep his ole shrimp. Pork, long pork... green pork, grey pork - we Southernahs love us some pork! Varying from my usual wont, for the pictured dish I’m recommending a hickory style bourbon sauce over the traditional, thin vinegar dip. I spect it may be a tad um, gamey.

(The smudges of red from butchering are a niiiiiiice touch.)

I can see it now,

“Honey, Bill and Margie are going to be able to make it over for the party after all. Got room to put another nephew on the BBQ?”

A ping list is a list of people who want to be pinged when articles about their topic of interest are posted.

It's just been downhill since they stopped selling guns and ammunition. I mean how bad off do you need to be to merge with K-Mart (which made the same fatal mistake). The only ones who did that sort of thing and survived are Targe`t" Although I don't recall them selling guns, I know they did sell ammunition.
