You can probably guess how the Dyson DC18 Slim
stacks up the other Dyson models we've sold. (It's slimmer.) But how
does it stack up against other famous Slims throughout history? Read on
and find out why the Dyson DC18 Slim All-Floor Vacuum is the slimmest, suckiest slim of all the slims who ever slimmed.
Slim Jim Pro: Tastes much better than the Dyson DC18 Slim. Available cheap at any 7-11. Endorsed by "Macho Man" Randy Savage. Con: It's best not to wonder what parts of which animals are in those things. Winner: The preservative-free Dyson DC18 Slim.
Slim Pickens Pro: Veteran Western character actor who also livened up comedies like Dr. Strangelove and Blazing Saddles. Con: Dead for 25 years. Lacks a HEPA-certified filter. Winner: the Dyson DC18 Slim. We love you, Mr. Pickens, but you can't win unless you show up.
Slim Shady Pro: Without him, life in general just feels so empty. Sick of
little girl and boy groups. All they do is annoy him, so he's been sent
here to destroy them. You think he gives a damn about a Grammy? Con: Does not use cyclonic separation to remove dirt from the
air. Walks around grabbin' his you-know-what, flippin' the
you-know-who. Probably got a couple of screws up in his head loose, but
no worse than what's goin' on in your parents' bedrooms. Winner: Dyson DC18 Slim, please stand up.
Virginia Slims Pro: Has come a long way, baby. Con: An unfortunate tendency to kill its best customers. Winner: The Dyson DC18 Slim. At least it doesn't pretend it's empowering women to do anything but clean the floor.
Field Marshal William Slim, 1st Viscount Slim Pro: Fought in both World Wars. Wounded in action three times.
Apppinted 13th Governor-General of Australia by Queen Elizabeth II,
1953. Renowned for his tactical brilliance. Con: It's very difficult to empty his debris bin. Winner: the Dyson DC18 Slim. The debris bin makes all the difference.
Slim-Fast Pro: Extensive line of low-calorie shakes and other diet foods. Endorsed by Whoopi Goldberg, Tommy Lasorda, and Kathie Lee Gifford. Con: Qualifies as "food" only in the most literal sense of the
word. Endorsed by Whoopi Goldberg, Tommy Lasorda, and Kathie Lee
Gifford. Winner: A shake for breakfast, a shake for lunch, and the sensible Dyson DC18 Slim for dinner.
Pro: Teaches children the value of healthy living.
Con: Teaches children to tolerate enthusiastic, perm-waved strangers in full-body leotards.
Winner: The totally non-creepy Dyson DC18 Slim, whose clear debris bin shows you all the internal anatomy you need to see.
Iceberg Slim Pro: This former pimp's grim, relentless prose made him "America's Most Read Black Author". Con: As far as we know, not inclined to help you clean your floor. Winner: Iceberg Slim. Sorry, Dyson. You're a nice piece of equipment, but you just can't hang with Iceberg.

Who is this LeFluff, whose name causes such hysteria in all the
major European capitals? Just what is it that makes today's shirt so
different, so appealing? Maybe he's a monster. Maybe he's a naked man
hiding behind a shrub. Maybe he's a Fry Guy whose quest for his
favorite foodstuff took him to the source. Maybe he's on his way to a
Halloween party dressed as "President Bush". Maybe, in typical Gallic
fashion, his unkempt underarm hair has overgrown the rest of his body.
The point is, he's all of these things and more. He's none of these
things and less. This shirt means nothing. That's how you know it's
This shirt was designed by: British adventurer, test pilot, mercenary, and diamond smuggler <a href="http://thisisjonturner.blogspot.com/">Jon Turner</a>,
who draws in his spare time. This one was composed in a Burmese prison
just minutes before Turner strangled a guard and escaped into the
Southeast Asian rain forest. (Exciting enough for you, Jon?)
Wear this shirt: instead of your striped sweater the next time you're toting a baguette under your arm.
Don't wear this shirt:
to Germany. They've never been too friendly with France. And the black
zigzags on the sunglasses look a lot like the SS lightning-bolt symbol,
which is illegal to wear there.
This shirt tells the world: "Why ask pourquoi ?"
We call this color: Lemon Fluff.

Whoops! Turns out there wasn't as much of the 2004 Merlot on hand as we thought. So we're bringing this bundle back with the 2006 Merlot instead.
This deal will only last through Wednesday, so don't drag your feet (or your credit card) and miss out. And come back Thursday morning at midnight CDT for another Ty Caton deal. (No, we're not talking about this updated version of this bundle with the 2006 Merlot. We mean a whole different deal.)
Pfft. Some people are strutting around out there like they're all
cool and stuff, because they discovered this hot new winemaker named Ty
Caton. Ha! Wine.wooters got hip to the Caton jive way back in January
2007. That was before the Ty Caton 2004 TyTanium won the
ultra-distinguished Double Gold, Best of Class at the 2008 San
Francisco Chronicle Wine competition. That was before his
Sonoma Valley estate vineyard's multiple sun exposures, soil types, and
varied altitudes made the critics sing hosannas. That was before his
wines were featured in some of the swankest eateries on the Left Coast.
We knew Ty Caton before it was cool to know Ty Caton.
reminds us of another thing we like about him: he doesn't forget his
friends. Here he is again with the kind of deal you won't find for Ty
Caton Wines anywhere else. It's like Lance Armstrong pedalling along in
the Mother's Day Fun Ride, or Bob Dylan turning up for open mike night
at your neighborhood coffeehouse. Please, ladies and gentlemen, no
Here's what you get for being in Ty's corner
when it was a lot less crowded than it is today: one bottle of 2004
TyTanium Sonoma Valley, the elegant, ripe red blend that made Ty Caton
famous; one bottle of Ty Caton 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, a
velvety, full-palate helping of fruit flavors, vanilla, and toasty oak;
and one bottle of Ty Caton 2006 Upper Bench Merlot, the rich, subtle red that floats like a plum butterfly and stings like a blackberry bee. All that Ty asks of you in
return is your continued support (and, of course, the price listed
Of course, it doesn't hurt if you stop by the Ty
Caton tasting room in Kenwood, CA and tell 'em Wine.Woot sent you. All
the cool kids are doing it these days.
