Reading with Scissors

About Reading with Scissors

The Chicago Journal sums up Reading with Scissors better than we can. But here goes:

My friend Greg reads a lot.
He notices certain things.
He cuts them out. Or picks them up.
He sometimes adds a comment on a post-it.
He mails them to me.
I put them here.

Look for updates about twice a week.

Let us know what you think. And enjoy.


That’s Greg. He’d never feed his dogs these.

And note: These are coupons and ads and oddities that we find. In Sunday newspapers, catalogs and publications left in waiting rooms or planes…it’s pretty random. We aren’t the advertisers or sponsors and have no affiliation with them. So if you really want a special closet for your ball caps, our apologies, but we can’t help you.


  1. God’s Miracle Box, eh? And where else do you get a promise of greater success, better health, and longer-lasting, firmer erections with a money-back, 30-day guarantee?

    Nowhere, buddy. Nowhere.

    I say we all go in on the 5-pack o’ miracle boxes. It’s that kind of purchasing savvy the Big Guy would surely reward.

  2. Can I reuse my God’s Miracle Box again and again? I might like to ask God to send me four more Miracle Boxes, gratis. I can’t believe that the Almighty wouldn’t have thought of that angle!

  3. Hey, Mikey! I shoulda known it was you all along. All the commentary sounds just like something I’d expect to hear you say over a cold one. All best! Karen (aka Hells Bells)

    • I’m just the scanner monkey. But it’s a lot of fun. Hope you’re well.
