Stay tuned...

Stay tuned for an ongoing blog called:

"Tonight @ the Whiskey a Go-Go"

[Details to follow...]

Sit & Sleep will meet any advertised price or your mattress is FREE!!!

Anyone who has ever spent any time in L.A. will inevitably hear the Sit & Sleep mattress store commercial, where an obnoxious voice brags:

"Sit and Sleep will beat anyone's advertised price or your mattress is FREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!"

I can no longer remain mute on the subject.

Do you ever, EVER imagine the following dialogue taking place?


Customer: Hello there. I see that this mattress is priced at $1000, yet I have an ad here from Sunday's L.A. Times showing that Joe Schmoe Mattress Company is selling the same mattress for $999.

Sit & Sleep: That very well may be, but the best we can do is $1000.

Customer: Well then my mattress is free.

Sit & Sleep: (long pause) Gosh...I guess you're right.
