I'm the Co-founder and CEO of The Grommet. We launch undiscovered consumer products. It's also the birthplace of Citizen Commerce. I write about design, cultural anthropology, and start-ups, mostly.

You hussies, you

I had a funny email from my pal Dan Weinreb.  He went to submit a Grommet idea from the submission form on our site.  He pointed out a strange bit of copy writing  I never caught.  You see, we tried to be helpful on that form by telling people what kind of categories of Grommets we seek.  But much to my amusement (and tiny bit of chagrin, just a tiny bit), here is what Dan noticed, and wrote:

Jules–I love the list of “things that interest us”:
Art
Books/Music
Children
Clothes/Accessories
Decor
Food/Drink
Health/Beauty
Household
Jewelry
Men
Miscellaneous
Seasonal
Stationery
So does this mean that you can buy men at the site?
Or just that men are one of the things that interest
the nice women we see in those videos?

Yes, of course I know what you mean; it just made me laugh.

Me too Dan.  Me too.
