Junk Mail SASS

I got this in the mail yesterday, and I have to wonder what the marketing conversation was that took place when they decided on this ad:



JimBob: "I know! Let's offer free toilet paper!"

Carl: "Well, I don't know... I still like the free bait with every beer purchased."

JimBob: "Carl, we all know that Edgar buys the beer for whole group, so we won't get any extra customers that way. Everybody could use some toilet paper."

Carl: "I suppose you're right. How many should we give 'em?"

JimBob: "I was thinking an entire package - six rolls."

Carl: "Six rolls! JimBob, we're not made of money! I say we open the packages and just give 'em two each."

JimBob: "I dunno Carl, if we don't offer them enough incentive, they might just keep usin' the old phone book tear outs. How 'bout we compromise and offer four..."

Here's the real question; did you get the toilet paper????

Okay, so I didn't get the toilet paper (although I really should have, I'm a crazy couponer).
We DID stop by their establishment though, and they don't even serve beer. I didn't meet a single person named JimBob (although we did meet a Robert...) and they DID mention the coupon for toilet paper! (I refrained from telling them I made fun of it on my blog.)
They said they had people driving "over 15 miles" to come in for their free rolls. Ha!
Shows how much I know about marketing...
