Whacked out groupon

So, you all know about Groupon and all the similar services, right? You pay a discounted price and get a voucher for goods or services. A common one is for restaurants: You pay $25 for Awesome Restaurant and get a voucher for $50 at Awesome Restaurant.

There was one this weekend I saw for horseback riding lessons. I was going to ignore it because riding lessons aren’t something I’m planning to take. But as I scanned the email my eyes glimpsed the phrase “poisonous rocks” and I had to read more. The teaser paragraph definitely made me click to see the full offer. Other than the attention grabbing intro it seemed pretty normal…

…until the last sentence! Giving hoses celebratory piggyback rides? LOL! Someone had too much fun writing their Groupon ad copy.
