The Daily Ping

Not a toilet in the country has not been affected by the Ping in one way or another.

Christmas Lights

I’ve noticed a strange phenomenon this year in retail stores: it’s gotten difficult to find Christmas lights. Regular old Christmas lights.

In particular, I was looking to pick up one or two extra sets of net lights for bushes in our front yard. In the past, they were easy to find at K-Mart. K-Mart’s no longer around here, so I checked Target. Zippy. I checked Wal-Mart. Nothing, except that dirty feeling you get when you walk into a Wal-Mart. Party City. Lots of crappy lawn ornaments and party decorations, but no lights. Finally I found some at Home Depot, but jeez… it was the fourth place I checked. What’s up with that?

My wife bought 10 strings at Target for $10. They are so cheap is almost not worth even trying to save them each year. They are made in China and probably coated in lead, but I figure as long as we don’t lick the lights we should be fine.

Odd, because I’m sure I saw plenty of lights at Target… around Halloween.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
