IKEA selling hotdogs?

I recently came across an article that stated the Ikea catalogue had surpassed the bible as the largest circulating publication in the world. The new 2007 Ikea Canada catalogue certainly puts new meaning to the term, a “balls out” business approach. The inside of a two-page, front-cover foldout portrays a family lounging on a bed with a dog that appears to a large human-like appendage that would make Tommy Lee envious. Ikea officials in Canada have denied rumors that a disgruntled employee manipulated the image in Photoshop claiming, " The picture has definitely not been tampered with…We saw this particular photo when the prints came through here in Canada....but we can definitely say this is a picture of a dog's leg, and it is not something else."
Ikea CEO Anders Dahlvig reported that he couldn’t bear any further cracks about “Swedish meatballs” or “wiener schnitzel”. After seeing the catalogue’s inside cover Burlington, Ontario resident and housewife Agnes Pullman promptly exclaimed “for heaven’s sake, think of the children”. Eden Fantasy adult toy shop owner, Morgan Steele appeared puzzled by the new catalogue stating, “I thought the Germans were into this stuff…but the Swedes?…I mean, they like their Seka, but this other stuff?”
Swedish car manufacturer Volvo is also hoping to cash in the notoriety of the catalogue and have decided to add two new vehicles to their Fall 2008 lineup, included will be the KY 300 series and the new fuel/battery hybrid SUV dubbed the Astroglide.
As for Ikea, the home-furnishing company's catalogues have come under scrutiny in the past as its publications have developed an online cult following as mysterious cat pictures, Mickey Mouse references and weird publications wedged into book shelves in catalogue images have been discovered.

That's the last time I buy furniture from the Ikea series suspiciously titled the Likast or the Ramberg.

hm, interesting post.

However, it looks like IKEA has some "enthusiasts" who'd rather buy its "hotdogs" than its furniture.

I appreciate IKEA for its business model, and I really doubt it would go into "hotdogs" ^_^ hehe

by the way, thanks for the comment in my blog! :)

IKEA--you've gotta love that brand. You walk in the store and you feel like you're reading names in an old Russian detention camp. Then, you come across a sign telling you why their service sucks and there is no one in the store to help you. Hooray for our accepting a lack of quality.

Ikea kills me. My bed is Ikea, and it is fine, and building it was ok also! But just going to the store for 0219dk0129kd1092dk20 hours was so painful.

I recently went to Ikea as early in the day as I could, hoping to avoid the worst of the crowds. I couldn't believe how many complete nuclear families were there for BREAKFAST. Apparently the family that eats $1.49 eggs and lingonberries together, stays together.

I've never seen an IKEA catalog. However I've been to one of the stores. Not bad deals but I must say the quality of their stuff is less than par.
