A Hell of Toys

Today (and yesterday) at work I'm laying out one of our annual hell-projects, a catalog for a toy distributor, created almost entirely in Microsoft Excel. Each of the 102 companies they get toys form is its own Excel spreadsheet, with little embedded graphics of the toys.

The musing of the moment is, there are two (unrelated) toy companies that start with the word "Kidz" and just one with the word "Kids". "Cool"
spelling wins over correct spelling. Then there's a toy company called "Lucky Zap", but they're Hong Kong based, which seems sufficient explanation. Also, the toy catalog has an icon that is "S.O.B." in a little burst, which stands for "Saturday Only Buys", whatever that means, but sounds like . . . well, you know.
