Default What's wrong with this picture?

To whom it may concern, especially the uniformed buyer:
Try going to the Wal Mart Home page, and using
their search feature, and enter in "telescopes". Look down several items to
what they describe as a "Schmidt Cassegrain". Does this picture appear to be
a Schmidt Newtonian to anyone. If so,maybe you could help them to correct
this mistake. I have notified both "Meade" and "Wal Mart", but either they
are extremely slow about this , or the staff notified felt this is
unimportant, and not in their job description. It is my hope that they
change this before some newbie, who only briefly reads the specs, doesn't
get what he was looking for. Thanks for you help.
Cordially,
Bill Kelly.

As long as they can get the suckers to buy it they don't care what's it's
called other tan Telescope, and that's why I tell people to NOT go there to
buy one.

Ah, I see what's wrong here. You expected Wal Mart to get it right.

Newbies don't typically buy telescopes that cost $1199. And anyone
shopping around for *anything* over $1000 typically does a little
shopping around first. The price matches the product on the Meade
website, so you're getting what you pay for, even if the name is a bit
off.

what the heck is a felching gerbil?


Felch - (1) verb. The act of sucking or licking ejaculate (or other
substances mixed with ejaculate) out of the orifice in which they were
deposited. Most commonly used to refer to sucking out semen after anal
sex.

(2) Noun, referring to the substance ingested during the act of
felching--generally a mixture of semen and other bodliy fluids (feces,
sweat, vaginal fluid, etc.)

So it's a gerbil that either sucks it out, or a gerbil that has been
sucked out. Are you glad you asked?
