Let's take a time out from sports for just a quick second. Yes, I know it's 12:48 on a Saturday morning and I probably have better things to do (like sleep) but I just have to point this out.
I was watching the Cubs tonight on WGN and in between innings a Luna Carpet commercial came on. When it came time to play the all too familiar jingle, I began to sing along (don't lie, you do it too). To my dismay, THEY CHANGED THEIR EFFING PHONE NUMBER!!!
It is NOT 773-202-LUNA any longer. Nope, they apparently decided that having every single person in the Chicagoland area, some 8-10 MILLION people, know their phone number was a bad idea.
It is now 877-241-LUNA. They still fit it into the jingle at the end of the commercial, but it's just not the same.
If you're not from around here, Luna Carpet is a Chicago institution. Everyone knows the jingle, and everyone USED to know the phone number. Changing the phone number is like serving deep dish pizza without tomato sauce. It's like Gene and Jude's actually serving ketchup. It's like the Cubs playing their home games anywhere besides Wrigley Field. It's like the weather being what it's supposed to be in June. It's like Hawk Harrelson actually complimenting an umpire. It's like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife. You get the point.
OK, back to your regularly scheduled programming.
