Me: Ma'am, I saw your product in a store. And I am frankly outraged.
Me: Look, I'm not a prude. I don't have any problem with this kind of product, but I don't think you should sell them out in the open in stores like Costco, next to toasters and blenders.
Laurie: Sir, we make coffee pots.
Me: This isn't a sex toy? This isn't for human buns?
Laurie: It is a coffee pot. It is named for the family that started it. We have been around for over a hundred years. If you go to a McDonald's you will see many Bunns.
Me: Now I am really confused.
