    In the rare relevant Facebook ad, I spotted something that I didn't know I needed, but instantly realized I had to have (especially when I saw that it was only about $20). That would be this:

    You can order it here. If you want the D, it's here.

    And if you'd like a discount code, use this: rbqpbjv

    A table and ugly yellow chairs for 20 dollars? OK I guess. That must be JJ trek eating.

    First link is just to a scrolling Wish page. Which does, worryingly, seem to have Ahsoka Tano's breasts on it.

    That's your browser cookies, so I don't even wanna know what you've been looking at.

    I get a scrolling Wish page full of workout gear and tech items.

    If you're signed into Wish, it should bring it right up. (If not, then you'll get the scrolling page.)

    That reminds me. About 4 years ago, went to Helen Georgia with my sister, her boyfriend, and a girl I would hang out with. We ate at a restaurant that had outdoor dining, we sat at one of the outdoor tables. One waitress was spending most of her time at one table that had some redneck sports enthusiast type of guys. To the point she was ignoring her other tables. It was pretty obvious she was fishing for a big tip. Thing is she wasn't that attractive, she was kind of dumpy and vapid. My sister said something about why she was spending so much time with that table, while we were waiting to order some more beers. I said "She wants to get some D.". My sisters boyfriend agreed with me, and the girl I was with gave me that look.

    Anyway the waitress finally goes to check on her other tables. We were sitting between the redneck table and table that was a family. So when the waitress goes to their table, one of the kids, a little girl maybe 5 or 6 asked the waitress "Why do you want the D? That man said you do.".

    All of us burst out laughing, the little girl's dad started laughing until his wife gave him the look. And the waitress looked at me and us laughing, turned around and stormed off towards where a few other waiters and waitresses were standing and I'm guessing told them what happened. and pointed at the family's table and our table. The waitresses looked disgusted, the waiter laughed. She went towards that back of the restaurant and the waiter came over still laughing a bit and asked us if we needed anything. We ordered more beers. That dad kept laughing every once in a while.

    Wish won't load for me, but -- at twenty dollars I'd wonder about the print quality, or the S&H.

    $20 includes S&H. They’re unframed and made by Chinese slave labor, and probably unauthorized as well. :shrug:

    was looking for some poster frames on the walmart site earlier, and a similar type of penttych was selling for about 35 U$D

    So, a week or so after I posted this, I ordered one. It literally just got here today. (I complained to Wish and got a refund on the shipping.) You could still smell the ink on the things when I opened it. (I was disappointed that there weren’t any mystery seeds in the package.)

    Here’s a pic of what it looks like.

    One thing that’s obvious is it’s not a film still, but likely an airbrush painting that’s been printed. Still, it looks pretty good and I don’t think anyone who wasn’t inches away from it would realize it. Of course, getting it framed in the middle of the pandemic might be a problem.

    Behind glass it should look pretty good.

    Ever since I found out one of my wife's friends owns a frame shop with her husband, I've been getting posters framed there. It doesn't hurt that he gives me the "family" discount. :lol:

    Yeah. There's a lot of glare in the pic, so the actual printout looks better. And at $10, I'm not going to complain. There was an online company that supposedly did cheap frames, but I can't remember the name now, or I'd check with them to see what it'd cost for this.

    I never thought much about it until seeing the work from my wife's friend's shop, but a quality framing job can really make something inexpensive look really good.
