    HEMA

    Now this is an entertaining web site! Received this from a friend and I was truely impressed.



    HEMA is a Dutch department store. The first store opened on November 4, 1926, in Amsterdam. Now there are hundreds of stores all over the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, and Germany.

    Take a look at Hema's product page You can't order anything; it's in Dutch,but wait a few seconds and watch what happens.

    This company has a great sense of humor and a great computer programmer.

    Jeff, that is very cool! I wonder if all the big wigs at the company even know it's there?

    Very funny. And, perhaps, a genius marketing idea.

    Humor? We don' need no steenking humor. It's about time we curbed the jocularity around here a bit and got some serious work done.



    I actually had a boss once who sent a memo to all of her staff saying "Please curb the jocularity." She didn't last real long as a boss.

    WOW.... somebody spent some serious web page designing time on that page. Worth every cup of coffee he/she drank in the process.

    Neat stuff...
