informercial -> post

the infomercial on television belched out its pitch.

"...and we'll also throw in the deluxe de-scruffer, ABSOLUTELY FREE... just pay the small handling fee."

wait... not if i call in the next 20 minutes, but if i pay an additional fee? obviously, this was now a nation where even scam infomercials could nickel and dime the consumer. when you see something like that, you say to yourself, "self, either people are absolutely stupid, or these infomercial salesmen are desperate."

sadly, this cannot be so. if they were desperate, they wouldn't try something so obvious on an audience of perceptive, non-stupid people.
