You missed your chance. If you had bought 5 of them (above $49) before 1pm today (eastern) you could have gotten free shipping!

Today, if you order 9 samplers, (above $99) you can get a free deck of playing cards...

Do the cards have large numbers ?

I haven't found my chi (never looked for it). What does it look like and what does it do ?

Fu (eye-catching double entendre), Chi, Feng Shui...all have become overused cliches to promote an exotic Oriental flavor...


don't Texans frown at these cliches of them: barbecue cuisine of choice, pistol packers, pick-up trucks, Cowboys and cowboy hats, longhorns, boots...

I just seems stupid to me. But I'm not Al, but I am Al, but I'm not Al, but I am Al. Sorry, almost stuck in a loop there. If it is racist to Al, it is racist to Al. Perhaps I do not understand because I can't see through his eyes. But I can certainly understand it is racist to him.

What about massive belt buckles? Ooh! belt buckles big enough to have there own long horns! Now we're talking

I feel this tangent is the proper platform to once again voice my displeasure against the abuse and slander heaped upon my Polish percentage of ethnicity. We're inteli...intella.... smarter than the jokes make us out to be. (Sorry, I doesn't spell so good when my Irish percentage has been drinking)

Why is it your people always want to Polish the pickle...Think
And speaking of spelling, is it true all those Polish names end in 'ski, because the Polish can't spell toboggan? ??Think

maybe the eye-catching hook, "FU", used to get adolescent minded customers to look, tweaked me a little, and then the solicitous use of cliches in the blurb...to justify and excuse the use of a well-recognized abbreviation of a profanity...

picture a recent marketing school grad of UTEP getting his first job writing ad scripts for CBid...he sees "Fu Manchu" at the Chinese take-out and thinks that's funny, especially the FU part...he writes the draft and presents it to the editorial board...the lone Asian rolls her eyes, frowns and shakes her head, but all the other members, white, think it's brilliant...

guess we'll see how successful the ad is...how many adolescent minded cigar smokers buy the crappy smokes behind the ad campaign...

this is how "go back where you come from" becomes desensitized and is perceived as acceptable discourse by small segments of American culture...

it may be a limiting experience...I've been told my eyes are too small, too slanted...

and I have a defect in my left eye that diminishes my vision...ironic it's the left eye, huh?

It's only racist if the portrayal is negative and disparaging.
Instead, it's corny and tasteless. Like many of their promotions.

The new catalog has a goofy knight on the cover.
Is that racist to all Europeans?

Lighten up and quit listening to all those triggered millennials screaming down there in So Cal...

Well what do you do with your spare time?

Couldn't say on the names. Ellis Island gave us a proper 'Murican ratio of vowels, consonants, and syllables

to be fair portrayals which are positive can be racist.

the old "asians are good at math" chestnut is still racist.

I'm fine with everyone except natives and Fijians.
Used to think natives were the worst, then became familiar Fijians. Absolutely despicable.
