Project CRAP: Week 31 Report

Click here for the explanation of Project CRAP
Box size: 15" wide by 11" tall by 9" deep.
Total Weight of CRAP: 24.70 lbs
Depth of CRAP: 9 3/4"
New Pieces of CRAP: 17
Total Pieces of CRAP: 393
LowLight of the Week: The lucky winner of this week's LowLight award is Domino's Pizza, who earned the award with this excessively colorful tri-fold advertising explosion. The particular offense that secured them this week's attention was the amusing discontinuity present on the page scanned below. Click to view the larger version, then note the offer being advertised here on the front: "Doubles Unlimited." Now read the fine print below. "Limited Time Offer." Wow, that sure is an "Unlimited" offer. Why don't they just say "WE WILL GIVE YOU ONE MILLION DOLLARS" in big giant text, then include fine print that says "we will not give you any money." That would probably attract more customers, and it would be just as honest.

Dishonorable Mention: Apparently the fine folks trying to prevent Overactive Bladder didn't hear Skor two weeks ago, so Skor will repeat: Skor is neither a female, nor plagued with the scourge of Overactive Bladder. The suspicious reader may suspect that Skor is simply re-posting old CRAP to get a laugh, but open this week's scan and Week 29's scan and you will see that not all the numbers on the address section are the same. Besides, Project CRAP is a scientific experiment, and Skor would never toy with the results of a scientific experiment, regardless of the vicious lies that continue to be spread by Skor's college physics instructor.

Comments: The CRAP is picking up steam again, probably leading up to the inevitable back-to-school sales in which Skor will no doubt avoid like the plague. With seventeen new pieces of CRAP this week it was quite difficult to choose a LowLight. Hopefully this trend does not continue, but it almost certainly will. Maybe if Skor is lucky, the intense summer heat will cause some CRAP to spontaneously ignite. That would be cool.

My favorite asterisk ever was on a package of peanut M&M's. The slick little contest graphic read, "Win 100 million*," and in small print it read, "*Japanese Yen."
