Zig Zag Whistles that whistle scream as they race madly

I like firework ads almost as much as I like fireworks. I'm a sucker for bright lights and things that go BOOM. If I owned a cannon, I would be a menace.

I like that they called it an order "blank"

That's what I would have called it, too. Is that odd?

I'm more used to "order form" but there was something about that term that was distantly familiar.

downtown guy said...

I'm okay with either one.

I think you need a canon.

downtown guy said...

Canon or cannon?

May said...

Spell check fail! Ha ha! Both in your case would go Boom.

downtown guy said...

Ha, best response.

I miss ordering stuff from ads like this. The excitement of it all.

That's why my bathroom is full of catalogs for shit like swords and big man overalls.
