An "Order Confirmation" To Share

I'm sure we've all ordered stuff online and filed away the order confirmation until it gets to us. Ho-hum. This is the best one yet:


Thanks for your order with CD Baby!


(1) Rita Hosking: Burn

Your CD has been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.

A team of 50 employees inspected your CD and polished it to make sure it was in the best possible condition before mailing. Our world-renowned packing specialist lit a local artisan candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CD into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy.

We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved "Bon Voyage!" to your package, on its way to you, in our private CD Baby jet on this day, August 27, 2012.

We hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. In commemoration, we have placed your picture on our wall as "Customer of the Year." We're all exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We miss you already. We'll be right here at, patiently awaiting your return.
CD Baby
The little store with the best new independent music

I told them that was a pretty cool way to do it even though I know it ain't true. Heh.

Riat Hosking: nice choice, by the way. Heard her many times.
