Moving right along, people. This is your regularly scheduled dipshittery.
So I went to a work luncheon the other day, and one of the sponsors was a construction company. Among other marketing tactics, the company appeals to prospective buyers through a lovable looking animal, presumably to soften the image of an industry not known for lovability. (See Poltergiest or Lethal Weapon 3, among others.) So they have a retriever named Linus who wears a construction hat and poses for photos. Cute. Harmless.
Except this was the picture they had on enormous display at the event.
What do you think of when you think of "Overlook"? Does anyone else instantly think of the Overlook Hotel?
If you do, you know there isn't much lovable about it. Family murders, elevators filled with blood, a hotel coming to grisly life and creating gory death. I couldn't stop thinking that this was a terrible choice, especially written in what could pass for blood. It's one backwards R from being intentional.
Just glad it wasn't Lot 237.
Just me??? Probably. All work and no play makes Clarence a dull boy.
