Good news, NANCY!

Your aquarium supplies have been carefully picked from Marine Depot's shelves like delicate berries and placed into a wicker basket lined with unicorn fur. With the grace of a ballerina, we tiptoed them to our packing station where Santa's Elves—who work with us during their off-season—prepared your order for shipment.

Your products were methodically placed in each box using techniques taught to us by a former Tetris World Champion. Using a pair of tweezers, we placed hundreds of packing peanuts one-by-one into every nook and cranny to ensure safe transport. We are proud to share with you that our packing peanuts are reusable, recyclable, biodegradable and made using 100% recycled content. They also do not trigger peanut allergies. Eat your heart out, Mr. Peanut.






Saying goodbye to such sought-after products is always gut-wrenching. That is why we offer employees unlimited handkerchiefs as a part of our generous benefits package. As your order was whisked away at light speed down our assembly line into the loving arms of the shipping courier, our warehouse elves, with tears in their eyes, joined hands and whispered, "Jábba sô kalîk qonay." We don't speak Elvish ourselves, but they tell us the rough translation is "May these supplies bring stability and success to the aquarium and its owner." Wow, we are getting a little choked up ourselves now. Thanks, elves.

As the delivery truck pulled away from our warehouse dock, a rare double rainbow appeared overhead. That's when we knew the products we had raised since they were mere hatchlings were on their way to a better home. Please take care of them and, we promise, they will take care of you.


With sincere appreciation,

The MarineDepot.com Family

Probably they are Santa's elves who for most of the year have a holiday so it appears that with the money Santa pays them they cant afford to live thus they have to take on a summer job to make ends meet .
All this is while the old man in red snoores away the summer tucked up in bed doing nothing..
Perhaps they all should strike for higher pay from the Grumpy old bugger :rolleyes:

To Marine Depot
What a wonderful email! With such whimsy and imagination I have no fear that the parts I ordered will fit my project perfectly even if I didn’t measure anything, just took a guess . I am sure The Elves know just what I had in mind. I have a vision in my head now probably forever of Elves in to-tos on tiptoe, wicker baskets and unicorn fur. By the way where would I order unicorn fur.
You made my day!
Nancy
