Creepy, yes its creepy

The Lady Of The House (otherwise known in Acronym Soup land as The LOTH… which seems better than the male equivalent, being The MOTH), Anyhow… The LOTH has been hunting down all sorts of weird stuff for her work – which at various times involves kiddie-winks and school groups and such like.

In her travels, she found The Creepy Halloween Vampire Dude:

dracula-mask

She was very excited. “Take away the teeth – who does it look like?”

Scroll down for the answer.

In other news, this one caught my eye about the entry of the US giant Costco to Australia. Sounds a bit like Tom-The-Cheap (of 35 years ago) meets Bunnings Warehouse.

We think Creepy Vampire Dude looks a heck of a lot like Michael Jackson.

I went to Costco when I visited the US back in 1994. It was amazing… the two things I remember remember most were the pallets of Dom Perignon, and people walking out with trolleys full of 6 packs of ~1.5L bottles of spirits.

I wish they’d open one in Sydney! I have a Woollies and a Coles adjacent to each other at our local shopping centre and their prices are ridiculous. No competition between them at all, it’s as if they’re in collusion. (Hmm does look a bit Michael Jaksonish)

Interesting to read in the comments of that link that the Costco hype is wearing off for Aussies who are already canny enough to take advantage of the Coles and Woolworths discounting cycles.

Yeah – I’m not so sure about that. Everyone loves a bargain, and being told you will get bargains is usually enough. Comparison shopping is time consuming.

Case in point – my local hardware store is gone now – he went broke when a humunguous Bunnings set up down the road. A long way down the road, but close enough. I actually did go comparison shopping, and the local guy was frequently cheaper than Bunnings. Price didn’t save him – the masses flocked to the mega store. Clever saturation advertising DOES pay off when it comes to slaughtering your competitors in retail.
