    Slap Happy description writing
    While editing an old site i ran across this description.

    "Tired of eyeballs running wild all over the neighborhood?" WTF? ... I finished reading

    "Then add this eye-catching weathervane! This small horse weathervane is 2 feet high..."

    I can just picture a weathervane with bloody eyeballs stuck to it.

    Hours of writing descriptions can make ya a little slap happy and you just write the first thing that pops into your head. Well that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it.

    Anyone else suffer from this malady?

    Now I do, thanks.

    I'd be willing to bet it's a very unique description that won't get hit with a duplicate penalty any time soon.

    Wazzup with that? Makes perfect sense to me - and I understand the analogy (I think). Waaaaay back in high school they would have loved that in Creative Writing class.

    Perhaps you were shopping at woot.com when writing the descriptions.
