Check out my new, favorite fake pet:
Do you see the word choices?
“Never needs feeding!”
“Sits on its perch… or your finger!”
“Head & Tail Feathers Move Realistically!”
(Is it just me, or has the use of the exclamation point been abused here?)
Here’s my favorite line in the smaller print:
“Life-size bird features details so realistic, only you will know it’s not real!”
Only. You? Will. Know?
Riiiiiiiiight… Because everybody else thinks that gaping screw holes in a parakeet’s chest are normal.
I’m not sure which is more unsettling: the thought that someone would really hope that his friends would think that his fake bird is real or the thought that those friends wouldn’t actually be able to tell the difference.
