I think it was supposed to end at ready. Kind of hard to beleive that got through so many channels without being picked up once. A editor or copywriter would of sent that to the Marketing people. The marketing people would have sent that to a layout and packaging designer, they then would ve sent that back to the marketing people a for a second look to sign off on then off to the printers, who would then send it back to marketing people for a third time!

I can't for the life of me figure out what it meant to say.

"Be ready for a...... what?"
Seriously? It's a typo. The I key right is next to the O key.

And now is on reddit and digg and seen by thousands of people. Well, there is a saying that there is no such thing as bad publicity

The letters I and O are side-by-side on the keyboard.

There is a point you reach in your life that always being ready for a shit is a Godsend (or a blessing from Allah if that is the way you swing). This is clever marketing aimed directly at late Boomers.

If you lurk the internets, you'd know that this one's pretty old. Still funny though.

Pentax Marketing is an oxymoron in the first place, perhaps the use of the word 'shit' was a Freudian slip.

Beautifully and eloquently put, I say.

But as some stated, being ready for a shit sometimes is invaluable, because not being ready is when the shit is able to actually happen.

That goes very well together with the ruggedness and stuff, you know..

I don't see a mistake .

Weather sealing is invaluable in this case.
