When *facepalm* isn’t enough
Hello. And welcome to today’s post. Boy do we have a speshul treat for you today!
Do you have $50 large burning a hole in your pocket? Not sure what to do with it? These people can help you spend that pesky money. And hey, you can trust them, they claim to rescue horses from starvation!
If you’re looking for a sound investment; something that will really hold its value, they’ve got a deal for you! Now, you don’t want one of those “trained” horses, no sir-y Bob! You want a blank slate, something that you can mold in your image. They’re like putty in your hands, untrained horses, they’ll easily shape to become your dream, nay, your fantasy horse.
$50,000? Hot temperament? Untrained? Jumps in a stock trailer?! How did you know that’s what I always wanted?
Oh. I’m the only one? Ok, well maybe your tastes run more to this:
She’s only $15,000 more! Plus, as an added bonus, she WILL be over 15 hands and (as if that wasn’t enough), she comes when called. Hawt damn! Sign me up!
Now Chatty Cherokee, tell me about the person who touched you, was it any of these people?
Did you see a bright light? WALK AWAY FROM THE LIGHT, CHATTY! WALK AWAY FROM THE LIGHT! (Sorry, I had to go there.)
Soooo, is it just me or can no one else figure out the pricing strategy of these two horses? Are they selling them at such high prices in an attempt to fund their “rescue”? There have GOT to be better ways to go about getting donations. Just off the top of my head, you could sell horse shoes on the side of the road – they’d undoubtedly raise more money from that while they’re waiting for someone stupid enough to come along and buy these horses for the posted prices.
Unless those prices are typos? Maybe they meant a period instead of a comma and legitimately thought there should be three zeros behind it? $50 and $65 do seem to be more realistic prices for these horses…
Teresa was kind enough to share the following image with me on Facebook yesterday, and I feel it’s quite apt after reading these two ads.
