Questionable signage, podcast subscribing for newbies

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

The other day I was walking home through our local mega-mall and spied a strange sign at a jewelry store:

Sparkly Euroballs - $15 - *WOW

It was funny in a juvenile, Beavis and Butt-Head huh-huh, huh-huh sort of way. Then, a couple of days later, I passed through again, to see the same sign reading this:

Dangling Set - $10 - *LIMITED SUPPLY

I couldn't decide if it was a language barrier thing or an actual semi-innuendo thing, or maybe just a slightly clueless thing. I got a smile both times, though. What would it cost to buy both the sparkly euroballs and the dangling set, I wonder?

More usefully, the Parrot Talks website has a useful Podcasting 101 PDF file (scroll down the page a bit) that will help get someone you know who doesn't know the first thing about podcasting set up with iTunes and some subscriptions. It's a useful and very well designed document.
