The Shack!

Do they?

Right now you are correctly asking yourself, “What is this ‘Shack’ that all my friends are constantly talking about? Is it the latest trendy nightclub? Is it a sexually transmitted disease?” You idiot! It’s the god damn, motherfucking Radio Shack, bitch!

Much like Miracle Whip, Radio Shack is about to dial up their attitude and punch you in the face with their dick, and if you don’t like it you can kiss their ass right through their skinny jeans. I’m sure you’ve been on the subway and overheard a couple young hipsters in Flaming Lips T-shirts talking about cruisin’ on down to The Shack to pick up some 4700µF 35V 20% Axial-Lead Electrolytic Capacitors before going to the liquor store to pick up a sixy of PBRs. BOOYAH!

I was just at Lollapalooza and all I heard in the audience was “Shack this” and “Shack that.” In fact, Snoop Dogg spent half of his set giving shout-outs like “Where my bitches at? Where my 20A 250V Ceramic Fuses at? Raise your 4A, 400V Full-Wave Bridge Rectifiers in the motherfucking air, and wave ’em like they are rated 4-amps, with 400 Peak Inverse Voltage!”

    Ah, yes, more of the “Hire young, hip professional image makeover-ers” to try to sell our product. You just know there are stuffy, old, rich white guys proclaimingthis to be the work of rapscallions and ne’er-do-wells.

    If you can find any solace, it’s this: at leats they didn’t use the term “XTREME!”.

    Thats funny my Shack is right next to the liquor store. You’d be surprised how many people leave phones and cameras on tour busses and never claim them, I let them sit for about 3-4 months and then I take them into Da’ Shack and get some cash for them and take that cash over to the liquor store and buy me some Jose.

    god that sounded pathetic. I’m only one step away from selling my blood plazma for heroin

    THE SHACK is The Shit, Yo!

    Actually, the last time I went to THE SHACK they didn’t have what I was looking for and I had to go to Best Buy instead. Also, THE SHACK gave me cancer before I left.

    Funny, but you should have stopped at BOOYAH – the last paragraph was redundant. Just a little constructive criticism.

    And isn’t Pizza Hut renaming itself “The Hut”? What the hell is going on?!

    Jeff – Remind me why anyone likes you.

    We used to call it simply Rad Shack – honestly haven’t set foot in one in many a year, and one of my best experiences there was back in college when my buddy and I went in to one looking for a number of items, including a very specific potentiometer… The clerk/owner guy asks:

    “so, what are you fella’s gonna do with that?”

    us: “ahhhh, ummmm….”

    him: “you fellas aren’t fixin’ to steal cablevision, are ya?”

    us: “ahhhh, well… we just want to get a few extra channels”

    him: “oh, like the porno ones? yeah. this will work just fine for that, but I already have a few descramblers built up out back. want to buy one?”

    us: “no thanks… we want to make our own, thanks…”
