One of the sights I check daily with my mornin' cuppa is woot.com. One deal, one day, etc.

They always write a semi-fictional description of the product. They're surprisingly well written, and usually pretty funny.

Today's deal is on an iRobot gutter cleaner, and the marketing text has this gem:

All those leaves to clean, all that wet mulch and strange molds and maybe a venomous millipede with a rifle. You don’t want to go up there. You certainly don’t want to pay a stranger. And your kid’s been at a slumber party for a week. They always know, those kids.

But never you fear, because if your gutter fits well against this template, the iRobot Looj will be there to fulfill Issac Asimov’s dream. No, it doesn’t have breasts, that was Heinlein’s dream. Pick up a book, jerkface.
