    Fun with product giveaways

    Chris just told me about Papa John's Blackberry 7100G giveaway. All you need to do is add any Papa John's side item and two 20-oz. beverages to your online order, and *BooM* you've got yourself a new wireless handheld.

    Is this a bizarre pairing or what? So this spurned me on to think of other stupid combinations (while procrastinating from work, naturally):

    For a limited time, add on a free sailboat with your purchase of any of our new pepper steak subs at D'Angelos.

    This month only, take advantage of our 'Own Your Own Pony' offer by renting a 2nd video at Blockbuster.

    While supplies last, get your own civil war cannon with a purchase of 10 (ten) postage stamps.

    During July, get a free trip to Uranus with the purchase of any Target brand bath tissue.

    Become the king of a South Pacific island with every purchase of a 20 (twenty) oz. bottle of 7-Up.

    Get a free gold tooth implant with the purchase of any 40 (forty) oz. bottle of premium malt liquor.

    Try our new Dunkin Donuts chai and redeem your receipt for a date with a leprechaun.

    Anyone have any other bright ideas?
