Sounds like the K-3 is overrunning sales projections. Double edged sword.

Or production capacity.
It happened with the K10D. Good news.

Kinda weird since no one is buying the k-3 because of the strange printing on the rear LCD..........
Perhaps there has also been a spike in sales of black gaffer tape and/or electrician's tape. Can we get any figures on that?

Just woke up (Canary Islands 7:40 AM) and the first thing I do is checking this thread. Quite disturbing, really. On one hand it seems overnight to have turned into the finest and cleanest cheese shop ever established in this district. On the other hand it's certainly utterly uncontaminated by cheese.

But let's be fair and realistic: Not much of a cheese shop, really - now, is it?

Pity. Cheese in bed would have been nice.

And turn that bloody Bouzuki off!

On LaurenOE's rant Post I jokingly mentioned I had acquired the North American concession for Gaffer Tape. Let's just say if that were true I wouldn't be eating KD any more and leave things at that.

Pentax is doomed.

On an even more depressing note, I was talking to a guy in St. Catherine's yesterday who sells Pentax, and he's ticked at them right now, because apparently, they are sold out of K-3s, and Pentax Canada doesn't have any, they are hoping to pick up unsold stock from other countries, but he has deposits on a couple and can't get the cameras.
And what does all this have to do with cheese? (or bacon, etc)?

Almost nothing, but I did have process cheese and bacon on a breakfast sandwich at Timmies, moments before I spoke to him. I probably had bacon/cheese breath. I wonder if that increased his level of anger towards Pentax?

Do you remember how you got there? Happened to a friend of mine, woke up on a sidewalk in Majorca with cheese sauce dribbling down his shirt, waffles covered in bunny fur in his pockets and not a clue what happened. The only thing he could remember was ranting at a salesclerk in Moosejaw, Saskatchewan, that he needed gaffers tape.

Sorry to hear about your friend, guess he went Gaffa-desperate. Hope he at the least got the bunny fur of the waffles.

No clue to how I got here. Not a sausage. Some evidence though on a kind of Calves'n'Hobbes technology, as my Pentax case no longer contains K-3, but instead is loaded with puffed ChocoPops and some Tiger whiskers caught in the zipper.

On the positive side I have no need for Gaffa anymore. And I guess the ChocoPops will keep me alive for some hours.

So if you don't hear from me again, you know why...
