More Must-Have Christmas Presents For The Winnipesaukee Rich By Hammacher Schlemmer.

Why they keep on sending me e-mails, now on a near daily basis, and the printed catalog totally bemuses me. I am way, way, way outside of their target demographics. This is a rich person’s catalog and I am certifiably poor. Yes, a couple of years ago, I did order a Christmas present from the catalog, a hand-crank, slot racing kit — but Deanna returned it. So, I haven’t spent any money with them. I won’t tell you what this catalog is called around here, in case some of you, with misguided zealousness, accuse us of ‘something’ — though we are not that.

Just $200,000. So, yes, my neighbors around here in Alton could get a few. But, this car does NOT have any appeal to me. Batman never did anything for me, ever, even when I was a kid. Though I was probably was too young to articulate it, I think I must have, even then, thought that there was something disturbingly, limp-wrist, effeminate about that masked imposter. This car proves the point. Cries out: phallic.

This does appeal to me, though I would NOT drink a bottle of wine, on my own, anymore! Now I only drink wine for medicinal purposes; glass of red wine a day, rain or shine, whether I need it or not, but diluted.

I got this on e-mail and it cracked me up. Just struck me that something was missing on this 7′, $32,000, yet again very PHALLIC, object — yes, a detachable power tool attachment, especially for the ladies. IF I had designed this, where I marked it with the white box, I would have an opening — for a power hitch, where you could attach accessories of your choice. I can then see it motoring around …. Come on. You have to admit that that would be funny. But, would be hard to explain to the kids.

This is SO Lake Winnipesaukee — the playground of the ultra-rich, President Mittens Romney, Wolfeboro, NH.

Of course, I would love one but my house is cheaper than this beaut. But, of course, there are plenty around who could buy one of these on their AmEx and not even notice it.

To see these puppies over Alton Bay would be something.

We could have flying hovercraft racing up and down the Bay. Might be as good as the 2013 Americas Cup — those boats just looked like they were flying. These puppies really fly.

I will try and see IF Steve Parker, of Parker Marine, will sign-up with Hammacher-Schlemmer to be a sub-distributor and get a few of these into his marina. For those who know that marina, you have to navigate under a bridge to get to the main lake per se. Not so with these. There is plenty of taxiway on ‘the river’ prior to the bridge. You can pickup speed and then FLY over the bridge. WOW.

These could rejuvenate this aging Lake. We really need new genres of toys for the rich. Some of my other suggestions for this Lake given that I know it well and know what people like …

As I keep on saying I really never understood why Hammacher Schlemmer send me their “Rich Man’s” catalogue (and sometimes even e-mail, as was the case yesterday). I am way outside their demographics. But, I do get perverse pleasure in perusing it to see all the things that I can’t afford. This golf cart would be perfect for me. If I had one I would not have to huff and puff up Prospect Mountain. I could do my ‘jog’ in this! It will also go in the water. Wow. The price isn’t that bad. There are folks that pay twice as much for stupid German crates with four wheels. I am sure we will see one around here soon. I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t see a flock of them on a bay with people playing golf on the lake. You can get balls that float … right? I am not a golfer. I tried it decades ago, but it didn’t do much for me. I prefer to hit balls that are coming at me — as in cricket.
