850 days of what Gerry said he wasn’t going to keep doing

There was an ad on the TV a few moments ago for HarVey Norman, who were pushing an 850 day interest free offer.

That’s odd…I could be sure that Gerry Harvey who runs Harvey Norman said just a couple months ago that they were canning the deals:

“I’d love to do business with no interest-free [deals] but that’s not possible.”

It’s always refreshing to know that Gerry’s offers are valid for longer than his words.

Even the spammers know Obama’s plan

European style socialism is where Obama wants to take the US, and even the spammers know it. A short time ago I received two identical emails supposedly from the Internal Revenue Service advising me that I had under-reported my income (aka, they want more of my money) and that I should click the link in the email to go to my tax return and fill in the correct details.

The link was to a .eu website…a European website.

It must be a good day if I can compare Barack Obama to a spammer.

The Commonwealth Bank are being generous

The Commonwealth Bank issued a press release via AAP which made me laugh this morning.

The Commonwealth Bank has launched an interactive online competition aimed at encouraging teens to understand the value of money.
[..]
The competition is for existing or new customers, aged 14 – 17 years who have, or open, a Youthsaver or Streamline account with the Commonwealth Bank and deposit $10 before Friday 27 September 2009.

Give us ten dollars or you don’t get to play!

Who better to teach the value of money than the people who know how to take it.
