LowLight of the Week: This week's LowLight Award goes to yet another previous "winner:" Capital One. This time around, they attempted to grab Skor's attention with this oversized cardboard envelope declaring for all to see that it has "TIME-SENSITIVE MATERIAL ENCLOSED." Maybe that means that if it isn't opened it will self-destruct after a pre-determined amount of time, just like the old mission memos to Inspector Gadget. Remember how he would always crumple up the memo and throw it aside, only for it to inevitably land in the trash can, closet, or whatever silly place Chief Quimby happened to be hiding? That was great. Sadly, this message is unlikely to self-destruct in 10 seconds.

Comments: It has been contended by some that Skor's prediction of 50 pounds of CRAP accumulation by year's end is unlikely to come true. Indeed, the current mathematical prediction shows the CRAP topping out at roughly 42 pounds. 50 pounds total is still possible, if the upcoming holiday season brings as much CRAP as it does good tidings of great joy. However, an extra eight pounds does seem statistically unlikely. Time will tell. In the mean time, Skor will be trying to come up with a good way to pretend that he expected the lower amount all along.
