Direct Fullfillment (thirty years after Monty Python's Cheese Shop)





"Direct Fulfillment" is a doublespeak phrase... I just learned from the local AT&T store yesterday.

I hereby nominate it to stand alongside the best produced by JCHAO, EMTALA, and HIPAA as award winning, pricey, mindless drivel. It's much funnier when Monty Python does it as above.

Me: Hi, do you have the new I phone?

Sales Rep: We are doing 'direct fulfillment' with the new I phone!

Me: Super! Do you have one here today?

Sales Rep: Well we are doing 'direct fulfillment'.

Me: Well what exactly is that?

Sales Rep: It means you pay us today and we get the phone to you as soon as we can.

Me: How much did Satan get for your soul?

Sales Rep: One million dollars.

Me: He took a loss. SUPER! Bye bye now!


OKAY, COULDN'T RESIST POSTING MY FAVORITE MONTY PYHTHON SKETCH... ENJOY.

  1. Gee, 911, just try doing that in the ER.

    Patient: You gotta help me, doc. I live under a freeway underpass, got no job, no insurance, and no money. But I gotta bunion on my bum the size of Manhattan, and you need to remove it.

    911: No problemo. I am doing 'direct fulfillment.'

  5. I thought my wedding day would be ruined because the groom couldn't get his hands on the new iphone on opening day--7/11. Our love (barely) survived that idisaster, but then he spent about two hours monkeying with the iphone update and ignoring me. Right before I joined match.com he got it perfect, and the wedding was saved!!

    Personally if it helps save our soldiers, I'm all for it. They're anesthetized and bacon tastes great. Don't worry Frankie, I already know your opinion.

  7. yes, do it. they have been doing it for years to learn about how to better treat combat wounded, don't know why this is a story now except for the election cycle and peta (who should all be locked in a room with lots of bunnies, a knife, and a hibachi, and given only water to drink). beautiful thing is, if they fire up the hibachi and grill fluffy they will die from carbon monoxide poisoning.

  8. "election cycle and peta"

    I think you called it right there. Tearing down the military is an added bonus for them.
