I’m a big fan of the nut jobs at Woot.com who sell stuff — all kinds of stuff — with weird and often hilarious pitches. Today it was the Mediocre 6 Piece Luggage Set.
The writer not only captures the tacky charms of cheap luggage – I know because I’ve owned a lot of it – but also the currently lamentable state of U.S. vacationing:
What better accessories for a mediocre vacation than this 6-piece set of mediocre luggage? Not only will this tote, garment bag, toiletry kit, and three upright suitcases provide perfectly adequate storage ‘n’ portage, you also won’t really have to worry that one of your fellow Greyhound passengers will steal them.
And, yes, the luggage sets did sell out.
