Shopping with Big Brother


Marketing News: "An Italian mannequin manufacturer called Almax has designed a mannequin equipped with surveillance cameras behind the life size dolls' eyes. These sneaky marketing schemes are already being used by retailers in the U.S. as well as three European countries."

That mannequin in stylish clothes
With eyes that do not blink.
Who's standing there in silent pose
May be  more than you think.

It may be wearing silk or mink
And might not see its toes,
But who you are, in just a wink,
Its camera sees and knows.

  • I'm surprised you didn't work "fink" into this.

    I suppose that someone should put such a mannequin in Jewel across from the TCF Bank counter.

  • In reply to jack:

    Because it's taking photos, it would be spelled 'phink'.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Which makes me wonder why women wear blue gym pants with "Pink" on the posterior.

    But does remind me that Purdue teaches both pharmacy and pharming.
