They think of everything you need.
(Page 13 of this month’s Costco Connection magazine.)
I didn’t even notice that when I flipped through. Hysterical.
HAHAH love that place, sadly no one I know has a membership these days 🙁
I guess they figure if you eat all that red meat, you might have need of your own personal defibrillator! 🙂

Best juxtaposition ever.
I think it’s awesome. Very streamlined. Always thinking about the customers…
By the way – I wanted to reply to your last comment – but you are one of those “no comment blogger” address commenters. So I’m doing it here. That post is kind of a lame “oh crap I have to get something in for my 2 post quota at DC Metro Moms” post… The previous one about my husband almost amputating his foot and leaving a giant rock on our back deck for a year is more entertaining.
Now I never have to watch what I eat again. Maybe page 11 has candy specials and discount insulin?
One can only hope the irony wasn’t lost on the person who placed the ads…
I love me some Costco too, but my Fred Flinstone impersonating husband would go into cardiac arrest if I spent close to $6 a piece on burgers I had to cook myself. Hmmmm, he’s kind of been pissing me of this week so maybe I should forgo the paddles and take my chances. I do know CPR.
I love the fact that you can buy anything at CostCo. No need for a doctor, I have my own home defibrillator! How long do you think before someone tries to cook the burgers WITH the defibrillator? 🙂
I need one. Really, I do.
If I did that kind of thing, I’d be ROFLMAO!
Damn girl, my Costco is flat out ghetto compared to yours.
One stop shopping!
I don’t know… It does not look like that defibrillator is going to be able to revive that lamb to me.
They lurk everywhere.
Guard your bacon.
Somewhere in Kirkland, WA there’s a skinny, evil art director laughing his ass off.
That is about as funny as the kid who showed up last week at the dentist office to get his cavities filled while wearing a Jelly-Belly’s Hat.
Got to love the irony of it all!
Love how PETA snuck in and doctored that ad up.
Finally, a little proof that corporate responsibility’s not dead!
HAHAHA! Awesome. Nice find.
And, unfortunately, my husband would have proudly purchased ALL three of those. After strolling each aisle for an hour and a half and strategizing how to get more than 1 cream puff sample.
I love that Costco sells the automatic defibrillator to anybody and everybody…and yet I pay $55 to the American Red Cross every year to be “certified” to use that damn thing…
Oh and @ Erin Im Gonna Kill Him – I would have proudly purchased all three of those as well. It’s a good thing I live in Iowa City and the nearest Costco is two hours away in Des Moines.
Brilliant. You, not them.
It would be an even more perfect Costco offering if the home defibrillators came in a set of ten.
I remember seeing those ads the same day they were offering discounted in-store colonoscopies.
Better than Target as far as pure unadulterated consumption but with less panache. It’s good to know you can have your steak, suffer a heart attack and then get back to dessert without missing a beat.
That is hilarious – I agree with Maureen bc the irony is too awesome!!
Halal, D’artagnan, and Wagyu may result in the need for an AED? I should have guessed.
