Fine Print

If something is too good to true, it is, either that or there’s some fine print out there.

What made me say that?
Well… This did:


The four dollar “One-dollar Laser Pointer”

Confusing huh?
Saw this laser pointer in those toy dispenser where you put in a one dollar coin (Use to be 50cents…) and turn the handle to get the toy. When I saw the picture on the dispenser, the little kid in me woke up.

“Woah! A one-dollar laser pointer! Cool!”

I got one of those shock-of-your-life moment when I got the “egg”…

“What the heck is that?!”

Ended up I got some cheapskate rubber Gundam figurine which I believe is made in some sweat shop in China for less than five cents including wages… Then I noticed the fine print: “Consist of other toys!”

D’OH!

Being the boy I am (Girls grow up to be women, boys just grow up to be bigger boys) I spent another three dollars to get my laser pointer. (And in the process got another God-knows-what figurine… Which I gave to my li’ brother 😛 And an Eeyore-doll keychain)

Now I have a spanking new laser pointer to harass my dogs with 😛
