For Sami's approval: The Bacon Watch

Please take your seats, ladies and gentlebots. It's time for Mystery Product Theater 3000.

In this first part of a one part series, we examine an impassioned letter about a product the world desperately needs.

We assume Sami's shaky handwriting is a symptom of fervor rather than being "only 9 years old" as he or she asserts. Only a shrewd business person would stipulate approval of our draft before sending $5. Nice try, Sami, but we're on to you.

Thus is the letter in its entirety:

Presented in text for SEO and spambot optimization:

"Dear ThinkGeek Inc,

This is not an order but a suggestion for a product. I was reading your new catalog, (nice work, by the way!) when I saw the bacon section. Well, I was reading it, thinking about a suggestion, when I noticed my watch! So, I got the idea for a bacon watch! The arms are decorated to look like bacon, the circle on the inside looks like timmy, with his tounge [sic, for authenticity] hanging out, and the strap looks like bacon. If you are reading, please consider. If you do, send a picture to Sami@emailhere.com. I will send it back with approval and $5.

Thx,
Your biggest fan, Sami.

P.S. Please exuse [sic, once more to be sure we believe it] my handwriting. I am only 9 years old.

And our first Bacon Watch draft, submitted* for Sami's (and your) approval:

*No, we're not planning on making this watch, but we sure enjoyed the letter. Thanks, Sami, and please continue with your writing!

meaningless icon! You *should* make this watch. I buy a few for all the bacon lovers in my family. :) Though I like the second ("Time for Bacon") one better than the first.

meaningless icon! I'd buy it, but only if you reverse the straps. I couldn't help but notice they're reversed (the top of the dial should have the prong and loop, the bottom should have the holes).
