Post 320: Clean your Clocks

We’ve often bemoaned the fact that Sparky has pets that he doesn’t know how to take care of or even spell the correct name. Today’s example of Sparkitude comes via NinjaChow from a Sparky who knows better than to have pets and does not smoke.

What that has to do with the item being sold, we may never know.

BRAND NEW COOCOO CLOCK – $20

 EXCELLENT CONDITION
IN ORIGINAL PACKAGING
CLEAN HOME
NON SMOKING
NO PETS

As a bird breeder, I expected little doves to come out of the clock every hour and coo. I realize now that Sparky is cuckoo.

 Hey, Sparky, what time is it? You don’t know, your only clock is still in the box. Carry on, my dear readers. Carry on. And thanks, NinjaChow!

  1. Dear Sparky, not every wall-mounted clock with a pendulum is a cuckoo (or indeed, coocoo) clock. This is what we in the know refer to as a not-a-cuckoo-clock, owing to the complete absence of a cuckoo, anywhere for the cuckoo to emerge from, and the fact that it isn’t a cuckoo clock. Now stand still while I smack you round the head with it. Signed, A Pedant.
