These are some of the latest responses. If you haven't already seen them, check out the earlier ones, too.
We can't disclose full contest entries yet, but we can let you see a few [more] of the letters of support we have received. Meanwhile, write letters to or call Geoffrey! Alert the Roadrunner! Write Ted Turner and ask him to colorize Geoffrey's brain! (Maybe we can get on TV when the USPS is sent in to wipe us out!)
All opinions expressed belong to their owners. Our opinions about a certain mongo toy chain and its corporate parent are expressed elsewhere!
Remember, you must send the letters to TRU via us, or at least Cc: us on email, if you want to qualify for the contest!
Names will be added after the contest is over.
Some of these have been lightly edited purely for spelling, grammar, or strong language. My comments are emphasized just like this text.
You might pass on to Toys-R-Us (until we got so arrogant) that it probably doesn't bother them at all to offend the Internet old-timers; after all, just because we have entirely too much disposable income, a world-spanning word-of-mouth network, and are quick to anger doesn't mean that we're a volatile and profitable part of TRU's market. Hey -- they're a discounter -- they can compete with Walmart, right?
Some people have far too much emotion on their hands.
If TRU ever gets a clue and really figures out what is happening, they should publish notification that they have ended this stupid silliness so that people know that the boycott has ended.
Here's a joke I heard this morning, it is applicable to roadkill.
What's the difference between a lawyer and a leech? A leech will let go when you're dead.
If I got email like this, I'd start sleeping with a loaded rattlesnake by my side...
How about a new logo? I picture a giraffe laying on the side of the road, feet sticking straight, bloated stomach, inside a circle with a diagonal bar.And then they could adopt my favorite one-liner for their new corporate slogan, you masochists are only hurting yourselves.
I believe this person is a collector. Collectors typically spend more than parents with 3 kids.
