Today I was looking at Target.com to see what kind of pillows they have. I’m looking for something made for obnoxious snorers like myself, so I typed “snore pillow” into the search box and it turned up completely unrelated things like storage boxes and toys. WTF? Then I just put in “pillow” and it spewed out 3600+ results. Geez, what a difference a word makes!
A couple of things on the first page of search results made me do a double-take. First up is the Disney Hannah Montana Pillow. Wouldn’t you just love to wake up drooling all over that mass-marketed face? Here’s a customer review: “I just received this in the mail and it is too cute! It has little rhinestones and the back is lavender faux ‘hair’ if you will. I can’t wait to give it to my daughter for her upcoming b-day!” Like OMG I can’t wait either!
That would look so totally awesome on that Hannah Montana Twin Comforter you got her last year! Just be careful…you don’t wait little Brandi/Caitlyn/Trinity/Brianna to shread her purty lil’ face on those rhinestones. Could scar her for life…or worse, cost her the Miss Trailer Park Teen award.
The next thing I saw is a fairly normal product, but the name made me stifle a guffaw here at the office: the My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow. You read correctly: Brest. And isn’t it also kind of unappetizing when they describe the color as “oatmeal”? I suppose “tan” isn’t exotic enough for today’s shoppers.
