Did you miss out on the chance to buy a limited edition Hope n' Change "Horse's Ass" wristwatch (as Seen On TV) last year? Have you been weeping bitter salt tears ever since? Well, dry your eyes - because you've got another chance!
First, a little backstory. The watches are made by a company called Artscow which is based in Hong Kong, and they periodically offer ridiculously cheap deals on custom wristwatches. And that's when I share the deal with you. I don't make a dime, I'm not involved as a middleman, and this is all just for fun.
The current deal is two (count 'em!), TWO wristwatches for just $14 including shipping by really slow tramp steamer from the other side of the world. Seriously, the shipping is s-l-o-w. But unlike the US Postal Service, it's also free.
And the watches are, honest to gosh, quite attractive and actually keep time. The design takes Barack Obama's "Hope and Change" logo and updates it for accuracy by putting a huge horse's ass at the center of things - just like in Washington DC! Talk about a great conversation starter!
The men's watch is hefty enough to be used as brass knuckles in particularly heated political debates (although that would be wrong, that's for sure!) and the women's watch is elegant and tasteful and would look lovely on Sarah Palin's wrist.
Here are the ordering instructions, and please pay attention to all of them. You can click here for the men's watch, or click here for the women's watch and add them to your cart. You can mix and match if you like, but you need to get two watches (or multiples of two - no limit) for the all-important DISCOUNT CODE to work. At checkout, enter the coupon code 214WATCHES, and you should see your total cost including shipping drop to a preposterous $14. (Offer expires 2/29/2012)
Note that I make no guarantees about the longevity of watches which cost $7 each, and that I can't help with any customer service issues (though let me hasten to add that I've purchased a lot of different items from Artscow and have always been very pleased with the quality).
Some of you may be asking, "Stilton- If you just gave away hundreds of copies of Obama Sutra for free, and you're offering these watches at cost without making any money, what's in it for you?"
And the answer is, like George Bailey in "It's A Wonderful Life," if I've helped in a small way for hundreds of people to flip the bird at Barack Obama, then I'm the richest man in town!
