Quite Interesting

Now here's a line to conjure with. It's like some sort of code: Seagull Entourage CW GT QI Acoustic-electric guitar at Guitar Center.

Let's take it one step at a time: Seagull. Well, we know what that is: a bird of various sizes and shapes that tend to congregate near the sea. Some congregate near humans if the latter are eating. They congregate until it's the seagulls that are eating and not the humans.

Entourage: a congregation of seagulls following the leader. And congregating.

CW: This could stand for anything, but here are some possibilities. A TV Network producing such hits as Arrow, Beauty and the Beast, etc. An abbreviation for Morse Telegraphy. (Yup, I wondered why too.) There are about forty others listed, including some that seem to make no more sense that the Morse one. Cook Islands?

GT: My favourite meaning for this acronym is GigaTexel which apparently means one billion filtered textured pixels. You really wanted to know that, didn't you.

QI - Only about twenty listed for QI. Plainly not such a popular combination of letters.  However, it's quite interesting that QI is an acronym for Quite Interesting. I think.

So, some marketing person put all these things together and connected them to an acoustic guitar. The world is full of puzzles. Including why someone would write a blog post about it. There is a reason for that.
