So I love Woot.com - they have some of the best copywriting anywhere. Case in point - the copy for Homeland Security Wireless Day/Night Camera Kit - 2 Pack:


A sign was painted
Said: Private Property

Chorus: This land is homeland This land is my land From the chain-link front fence To the back fence I've planned From the Coxes' driveway To the Hingles' swingset This land's surveilled for me to see
Well, they say a man's home Is that man's castle Where he won't get harassed And he won't get hassled But thugs are out to get me And they're all around me That's why this land's surveilled for me to see
Chorus
I installed those cameras Just as a precaution So that all the hoodlums Would know that someone's watchin' 'em I haven't seen them lurking So I guess it's working This land's surveilled for me to see
Chorus
Every night and weekend You can find me poring Over all my footage Though it's mostly boring Just kids when school's out And the mailman on his route Is all I've surveilled so far to see
Chorus
So no one's done a crime yet But if someone did, though I know I would catch it Catch it right on video And when that happens I'll get so much gratitude They'll "thank god for your CCTV"
This land is homeland This land is my land From the chain-link front fence To the back fence I've planned From the Coxes' driveway To the Hingles' swingset This land's surveilled for me to see

Ahhhhhhh, gotta love good copywriting.
