Dishonest Advertising

Dear Musician's Nemesis,

Your product description says that "The 2 Hootenanny Poly Strap turns any gig into a hootenanny." That claim is not accurate. I purchased the product and brought it to a gig with my Black Sabbath tribute band, but the gig did not turn into the hootenanny for which we had all braced ourselves. This was a bitter disappointment and led to considerable interpersonal tension within the band. Ultimately, amidst anguished recriminations and escalating episodes of savage violence, we went our separate ways. The Levy's corporation has a lot to answer for, and I fully intend to hold them to account.

Incidentally, I lack clarity about the "2" prefix. I feel that it is stupid. Please advise.

I am very sorry to hear that your nanny failed to hoot as advertised.
I thought savage violence was the very essence of a Black Sabbath tribute band. Why break up just when you're finally getting the hang of it?
Arlington, switch the damn spell-checker back on.
Obviously only intended for folk singers...
Odds are they sent you the wrong strap. Cross reference the appropriate model/serial numbers and also check for any obvious defects.

Did you try another gig?
The 2 seems to be the width of the strap in inches. Here's a "2 Boot Leather Sheepskin Padded Banjo Strap" and that says it is 2" wide.

"You'll love the feel of Levy's 2 Boot Leather Sheepskin-Padded Banjo Strap." Sounds almost naughty.

I presume you cut off your fingertips in tribute to Tony Iommi. (A real fan would do so.)
I thought a poly strap was a device for restraining parrots.
a word of advice; never get involved with the boy with the poly strap.
I thought a hootenanny was a goat with big breasts.
Are you in cahoots with these people, Arlington?
