idea for the category pages

  • ~1 min read

I had an idea of how we could perhaps make the category pages a bit more fun and interesting. Instead of a strapline along the usual lines of 'come to Currys to buy a TV' we could put some funny/poignant quotes relating to the products. Examples like these I found on the web:

TV Television! Teacher, mother, secret lover. - Homer Simpson Computing

"Home computers are being called upon to perform many new functions, including the consumption of homework formerly eaten by the dog." - Doug Larson "Computing is not about computers any more. It is about living." - Nicholas Negroponte Data storage "Back up my hard drive? How do I put it in reverse?" - Author Unknown PC software "In God we trust, all others we virus scan." - Author Unknown Internet communications "The Internet? Is that thing still around?" - Homer Simpson iPods "I get the shuffle and then I shuffle the shuffle." - US President George W Bush Cooking and Kitchen

"The kitchen is a country in which there are always discoveries to be made." - Grimod de la Reynière (1758-1838)</font></font>
