CDBaby is teh weeeeeeeird!

The people who run CDBaby (from which I recently ordered this CD) are ........ really odd.

The following is the (so ludicrous that they can get away with it being clearly full of lies :) e-mail that I received from them to tell me that my CD had shipped (minus some boring actual factual goop about my order from the top):

    Your CD has been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with
    sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.

    A team of 50 employees inspected your CD and polished it to make sure
    it was in the best possible condition before mailing.

    Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over
    the crowd as he put your CD into the finest gold-lined box that money
    can buy.

    We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party
    marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of
    Portland waved 'Bon Voyage!' to your package, on its way to you, in
    our private CD Baby jet on this day, Wednesday, February 22nd.

    I hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. We sure did.
    Your picture is on our wall as 'Customer of the Year'. We're all
    exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!

    Thank you once again,

    Derek Sivers, president, CD Baby
