The mailman brought me the latest direct mail come-on from Clay Cooley Nissan, and it’s a doozy!
It’s another “match the number in our showroom and you win a prize” sweepstakes. And look, it came with a secret Combination Box™, a little plastic box booger-glued to the side. I bet the mailman hates Clay Cooley days.
Back to the Box™ in a minute. First, let’s see what I have to do to qualify for a prize:
Oh, man! What are the odds the number under the scratch-off patch AND the number in the Combination Box™ are going to match 83329? Let’s see. First the scratch-off:
Dude! I’m almost there. But what about the Combination Box™?
Lookin’ good so far. It could be, it might be…
It is! Another match! Wow, how lucky can I get? Who’d a thunk? But wait, the real mystery is not what appears on the front of the Combination Box™. The real mystery is what appears on the back of the Combination Box™:
The Combination Box™ is a “digital electronic device?” WTF?!
I guess I’ll just have to visit Clay Cooley Nissan to see if somehow, someway the three identical numbers on my mailer match one of the numbers on Clay’s prize board. And also to ask about the electronic capabilities of the Combination Box™ that I am apparently missing.
Be seein’ ya soon, Clay!
