Bruce Cutler Sends Me Schwag!
Posted by thedarwinexception on November 29, 2007
I almost forgot to tell you – with all the computer problems and the zombie lady and everything else going on. But Bruce Cutler contacted me a couple of weeks ago – well, more accurately, one of his people did. And he asked me for a small favor, which I did, and as Thanks his associate sent me a whole box of Bruce Cutler schwag. Or, again, more accurately, “Jury Duty” schwag.
And this isn’t just cheap crap, either, it’s like high quality schwag. The t shirts are thick, not that “wash once and be threadbare” stuff that you normally associate with “free schwag”. And the cups are really heavy ceramic – the bags are as good as what you would expect if they had a Nike swoosh symbol on the side, and the cap is a really heavy cap material, not the cheap “one layer of lightweight cotton and a piece of cardboard” kind of cap.
So I was really impressed with the “Jury Duty” schwag, and wanted to show you what I got. And I really am going to have to set a season pass on “Jury Duty” on the Tivo so I can check out the show. It has to be fairly good, with the high quality schwag they hand out.
These are the mugs – one is an insulated traveling mug and one is a regular coffee mug – oh, and I got two bottles of “Jury Duty” water. I’m not quite sure what the significance of the water is. Maybe when I see the show, it will be clear.
These are the shirts – a dark blue polo shirt and a pullover gray t shirt. Really, really nice quality.
These are the bags – a light gray canvas tote bag and a dark blue nylon zippered backpack. Again, really high quality materials.
Then we have the golfing towel – I think that’s what it is, it’s a small hand towel with a silver clip in one corner. Are those golfing towels? And the cap.
Everything has the Jury Duty logo on it, and the shirts say “You have been summoned to watch Jury Duty”. On the back of the gray t-shirt it says “Don’t even try to get out of it!” I guess that’s their slogan. I guess they didn’t have room for the last line of the slogan “If I can leave in the middle of a high profile murder case to tape it – you can take time out of your mundane fucking life to watch.”
