Default Parody on writing the Michael's ads

2 ad people discussing next weeks ad.

Person A : What are going to sell ribbon for this week?
Person B: Buy one get one free. We have a warehouse full of this stuff to get rid of!

Person A : Next let's go with 40% off Scrapbook storage , 50 % off flowers and 60% off framing
Person B: We have had those sales for the last 6 months!
Person A: I know but we have to fill up the ad page

Person A: Lets go with 2 for $8 on the generic cardstock
Person B" They didn't buy it when it was 3 for $10 what makes you think they will buy it at 2 for $8?
Person A: They probably won't, but then next week we will put it back to 3 for $10 and it will look like a bargain.

Person A: We need two more things. Any ideas ?

Person B: How about Circut cartridges $39.95 and photo boxes 5 for $10
Person A: We have very few Cricut cartridges and what we have are old ones
Person B: I know, but it brings them in hoping we got some new ones.

OK We'll go with these and a 40% off coupon
