So, I made a Marine Depot order and I received an email letting me know my order had shipped... I laughed my rear off at this one.. Thanks Marine Depot! This one takes the cake. :)

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

Very nice.

Off topic but something I found out is Pet Solutions is the same company but offers free shipping at $50 instead of the $175. I've been ordering from that site instead the past few times.

Interesting... I'll have to remember that.. Though what I ordered was only $20..

That's awesome! I love it when companies don't take themselves too seriously.

I ended up with two apex units due to MD errors. I was kind enough to send one of them back. Both had been placed in my garage without a witness and door had been open all day.....

Doesn't look like they carry the exact same items, but for basic stuff looks like a better deal.

I'm usually able to find most items. The navigation is definitely inferior to their main site. Sometimes the search function is the only way to find something.

Ahh, but they do sifuentes. It is called the tax code; In a language only they understand. Makes some laugh, others cry, and all they while not taking anything too seriously, except getting paid.

That is funny and the way it looked when it got there is even funnier. I'm glad they let their employees get high at work. It really spices up the emails.
