Subtlety in marketing


I took this picture when we were shopping at Menards this weekend.

How can I put this delicately?

Ummm, does it seem like this particular light fixture might be packaged to appeal to male buyers?

Or perhaps breastfeeding infants?

I'm just sayin.'

Why do you think they call it "Menards?" Two scenarios:

1. They wanted to combine the words "men" and "nards"

2. They forgot the apostrophe when making their logo... "Menard's"

All I know is I have a 3 jingle limit when I go there "plumbing, electrical, appliances... save big money..." and then I go postal.

Do those lights take C or D batteries? Definitely not AA.

How telling it is that all three comments on this subject come from my male readers!
