    Harvey Norman have just announced the opening of their "Hardly Normal" Sale.

    Did they know already that that is what they are known as in the world of geeks?

    Or did by some coincidence think of it all by themselves without knowing about their underworld name?

    chances are some marketing 'whiz' came up with the idea, thinking it was a good line..... I doubt they'd know about how we really think..

    Yeah, I agree with Beefy, some marketing "guru" came up with it, I doubt they'd be smart enough to actually try and apeal to geeks....

    Well I went for a trip today to Hardly Normal and 3YB (A local radio station) was there. They were covering the event and when they said something about the sale I just started laughing at them.
    I wonder whats gonna happen when someone from marketing actually realises that they have screwed up.

    oh and BTW, their prices are still Hardly Normal

    They haven't really screwed up.. They just don't know about the common use of it...

    well then if they did, what would be the point of promoting a bad name for themselves?

    no..it'd be the other way round Slamo. They have been doin the "hardly normal" sale for ages now, maybe even years...the 'geeks' picked it up from there..
