Clever Marketing..

Most of you have seen Jr.'s sweeping craze in my previous posts..

The broom we got from India has started shedding, because Jr. has the habit of sweeping rough concrete with that broom! So everytime she is done brooming, we have to follow up with come vacuum cleaning.

She kept insisting we buy her a toy vacuum !! I did not even know if one existed, but obviously she had prior information about the existance of such a toy..




Last week we actually found the toy! You have to hand it to these guys. The thing looks real, runs on a battery and has the light and sound effects of the real Dirt Devil. I am sure they are more than making their revenue projections on the toy vac than on the real one !!

ps. I would have posted a pic or video of Jr. doing the vacuum. But recently the baby's sickness, accidental injuries as well as Jr.'s tantrums have all been statistically correlated to their pictures and video's appearing in the blog with a Karl Pearsons coefficient of 9.99 x10^-7. Most statisticians would argue that it isn't much of a correlation and they are independent events, but then if you multiply this coefficient with the weight factor for the wife/MIL (which is around a million, compared to the weight factor for me, which hovers at <1.0), the picture changes quite dramatically. So dramatic, that it might shut down the blog, again. So, I will have to stay content with talking about Sun TV programming, Chennai news, etc. for the time being.

pps. Saw Vadivelu as spiderman in the "Vyapari" movie review on Sun TV. He is indeed funny!! Hats off to Vadivelu!

Your quoting of Karl So & So's coefficient made me look like Vadivelu in Spiderman costume !

I guess the evil eye syndrome is at work ! Well, well, in the village where my father was born, they say a broom stick drives away the evil eye !

They didnt know about a vaccum !

I am surprised that you got away with putting the little ones photos up for so long. The lad was down with flu after mother's day and with all the scientific evidence I decided it was to do with my mother's day post :) What can I say! Hope the little ones feel better soon
