I couldn't help myself - this is the most fun I've had in three years (I really do need to get out more).
I went to shopping.com and left the following message on their Feedback page. To be honest, I'm not holding my breath for an answer. If they do get back with me, though, I'll be sure to post the price list in this thread in case, you know, any of you would like one, too (No - you can't borrow mine).
I Googled "Federal Prosecutors" this morning and got the following hit:
Find, compare and buy prosecutors and other products. Read product reviews and compare prices with tax and shipping from thousands of online stores.
I would LOVE to have my very own Federal Prosecutor, but can't find that category on your site. Please forward current prices and shipping charges, and include any discontinued or discounted models you might have in stock. Off-color models or those with slight blemishes are also acceptable.
Okay, it's out of my system now, so I'll let it go.
I've seen this before, where you'll Google something like, "Biscuits & Gravy," and you'll get a hit that says, "Need biscuits & gravy? Buy it for less on eBay!" It just struck me when I read the hit - I wasn't expecting anyone to offer a federal prosecutor for sale online. Given the state of affairs here in Indiana, however, the first thought that flashed through my mind was, "So - it's finally come to this!" I think that's what jiggled my funny bone.
It would take the embarrassment out of bribing public officials, though. Or would that be considered Internet Gambling?
Who knows? Maybe in a few years...
Come, Pinky; we must prepare for tomorrow night...
