Natural Habitat? I Think Not

OK, I was listening to NPR yesterday on my way home from work and a new story cane on about ethnopology...or is it enthnology?..Sorry, can't remember...B ut it was known as...ya ready for this? ( you're boring us already, get on with it egghead)'s the study of the consumer in their natural habitat...Uh...excuse me? Natural habitat? Yea, the study of consumers, shoppers, buyers of snake. Apparently marketing firms are taking ontp this like yuppies to Google stocks. For instance, A company (who shall remain nameless becasuen they suck and have sold me shiddy merchandise in the past) was researching men in their garages. THey went to thousands of family garages to see the man in his "natural habitat", his garage, his home away from home. This is where they wanted to market stuff for him. They noticed that many fellas refrigerators in their garages and decided to market that. But they also noticed that these guys lived like slobs and first decided to market a bunch of storage solution shelves and devices and gadgets to clean their pig sties up first...THey sold those first, the dudes cleaned their shit up and then they marketed the small friggies the following year...Worked like a charm. With a clean garage the man felt more like habging out there even more, and now they have a beer fridge to boot...Way to go marketing guru...
Consumers in their natural habitat? I think not. What a load...can we suck money from Amerika in a more efficient way please?

Hmm, wonder if I can go into men's bedrooms across america on the premise of studying them in their natural habitat to help market the sex toys we sell. Can I come and study you in your's?

THat's a perfect example (and yes you can observe me in my natural habitat as well...grrr)...To go one step further, the news blurb talked about Gold Bond Powder which was designed for athletes foot untill they started getting a lot of fan mail from college guys who loved their powder. Seems the dude were using it to powder their balls and noticed that it provided a nice tingly agent..Ahhh...soothing Gold Bond. Now it's marketed as a jock itch powder...How klever...And yes, there is a nice tingle as if I were in a ice tray...(uh, there's a hair in my ice cube)

And i thank you again for the photo op. nice to see your face again...
