Hello!
 
Hello, I'm Kate and I'm new to this board.

We just started an online, all natural beef, store [link deleted] - and I'm excited to see recipes, meet new friends and share our amazing beef with you guys.

Thanks for welcoming me to your site - I can't wait to connect.

Kate

Hello!
 
Goodbye!

Euphonious Polemic 10-29-2012 01:39 PM

As this is in the pit anyway, can you delete the link in the OP and leave this up so we can mock it?

Kimballkid 10-29-2012 01:41 PM

Well, at least she started in the right place.

Happy Lendervedder 10-29-2012 01:44 PM

I'm so disappointed. Kate is one of my favorite girl's names.

I had such high hopes for you, KatePS. You've broken my heart.

Astral Rejection 10-29-2012 01:45 PM

It was a shock to us all.

I wondered if the "BBQ Pit" name is what attracted the beef ad?

silenus 10-29-2012 01:48 PM

Hey, OP! I got yer Hot Beef right here!

Procrustus 10-29-2012 01:49 PM

Don't be so hard on her, she's probably in a wheelchair (but wealthy, at least)

Czarcasm 10-29-2012 01:50 PM

Yeh-she's hit a few other message boards with this.

Astral Rejection 10-29-2012 01:51 PM

I guess natural beef is as good a hobby as any.

OK, I changed my mind. You can make this thread disappear now.


Please.

Simple Linctus 10-29-2012 02:17 PM

I'm very annoyed by your website.

It clearly states:

Quote:


Quarter

A quarter of beef is just the right amount for many families. You can expect to get at least 175 lbs. of beef for only $6.15, which is much cheaper than buying each of the items included in this package individually. Your quarter of beef will include a variety of steaks, roasts and steakburger.
Well, I'm up for 175lbs of beef for $6.15.

However when I add it to my cart we're talking over seven hundred of your american dollars.

Why do you lie?

lieu 10-29-2012 02:18 PM

Nice tips, although the tri was a little weird.

Simple Linctus 10-29-2012 02:20 PM

by the way I don't think this is spam, this is just someone who's google bbq board or something.

lost4life 10-29-2012 02:22 PM

What is this tripe?

Hitting diferent boards and signing up just to drop an ad for her company is spam.

It's not spam. Spam is made from pork.

Euphonious Polemic 10-29-2012 02:25 PM

Apparently you can BBQ Spam.

Sounds yummy.

I suppose that's true but I tend to associate spam with scams and stuff where as at least this seems like a legit company, and given it's a family firm this could be a 12/75 year old or something trying hard so I am inclined to give some slack.

Vita Beata 10-29-2012 02:28 PM

Greetings Kate, The Straight Dope Message Board has a "beef" with random advertising links. A thread like this will meat with pun-ishments.

You may be, and if it were a board you were sole admin of, you could do just that. However, this board isn't yours to administrate. :dubious:

I can still give my opinion, especially when it's pointing out stuff that an overworked mod might miss or be reluctant to look for. I see it as being helpful :D

Not until you admit that this is not your board. Say it!

Shipping and handling. You just can't send a part of a cow through the post.

hello Kate.

i'm glad we're friends. cookout at my house. you bring the meat, i've got spuds and veggies.

The Dord 10-29-2012 03:10 PM

Can the OP count? One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven.. Seven Asses!

Sicks Ate 10-29-2012 03:12 PM

I wasn't sure how much cattle cost, but I guess it never occurred to me that a single cow is worth almost $5,000.

Edit: Gosh, I hate to actally have a real discussion in between all the fun we're having...but if one had a few acres, how much could one profit from raising a single calf to full delicious adult meaty-ness?

Vinyl Turnip 10-29-2012 03:15 PM

Maybe I was raised differently, but I thought "share" meant you had an excess of something and gave, say, half of it to someone else, just to be nice.

Or at least that's how I've always shared my amazing beef.

You just give half?

What are you, a heckler? That was part of the joke!

Don't forget to account for the countless dollars in psychological damage you'll suffer from having to slaughter an adorable cow. And I had named him Steve! :(

Hey, when a place has a 2-drink minimum, you end up with assholes like me.

What a horrible name for a cow! He was probably glad to be put out of his misery.
