Today I was reading the news online when I found an interesting headline. Apparently the winner of The Celebrity Apprentice, Bret Michaels, was launching a “pet rock” collection to be released at Petsmart. The line would include apparel, toys, beds, feeders, collars and other accessories.
I was shocked. For a man who must have been pretty good at business, he was a bit behind on the trends. Aren’t pet rocks so 1975?
Not only that, but it kept being listed as a great new thing for pets. What the llama? How on Earth would buying a rock help your four-legged pets? Takes pressure off them to be the performing one in the household? Sorry, Michaels, but that’s not really going to help anything.
Anyway, I was laughing at his stupidity for quite a few minutes before I noticed something.
It wasn’t “Pet Rocks”; it was “Pets Rock”. A line of Petsmart dog and cat merchandise.
Tables turned, right?
Here’s the article, so you can laugh at me being an idiot (it’s okay, I laughed at myself for a while too).
And if you were actually excited for the Pet Rock trend to start back up again, here’s a site that has a license to sell them, although they look a bit different from the originals.
