Rumplestiltskin was too boring

Every day my inbox is bombarded with "Amazing Deals" offering to sell me crap I don't want at half the price I usually wouldn't have paid.

Today's Deal was for a "Personalised album of children's songs" (each song featuring a name you select when ordering) and which is described as " an amazing concept that is taking the nation by storm". Hardly a new concept - I had a 45rpm record singing "Happy Birthday Daniel" back in the day.

What is new, are some of the names you can select. What do you suppose the return on investment was for getting some studio singers to record a song just for "Smookums", "Candlearia" or "Sumshine" [sic]?

A Roshanda by any other name...
