It's For the Children

From the "How To Guide", a local advertising supplement of the Carriage Towne News...

Needless to say, I got more than a small kick out of the picture and the caption attached thereto. Try running that in a half-page spread in the Boston Globe and the phones will be ringing off the hook at the local 911 call center, following the ensuing wave of heart attacks and stress-induced brain aneurysms.

Alas, the accompanying write-up (below) is about youth archery, and not that nice-looking back wall full of rifles.

You did see the bow in that picture, right?

Do stop in to see Gene if you find yourself in Plaistow, New Hampshire and in need of any new archery equipment (or some scary, non-MA-compliant handguns). But, be forewarned. Gene, despite his mild-mannered exterior, possesses some kind of evil, Jedi-like mind control abilities that have caused me to purchase firearms from him on multiple occasions.

I was powerless to resist, I tell you. Powerless.
