Broken: Universal Export dog decal ordering

DogsMark Nicely points out:

Both in their print ads and website, Universal Export arranges their dog breed decals by their order codes instead of what would be useful to a buyer - which would be alphabetically by breed.


I think what's broken is Mark's mastery of the base 10 counting system.

I don't even see a reasonable patern of organization.

Universal Exports is the cover company for MI6 (or is it MI5 - I can never keep the UK intelligence agencies straight) in the James Bond novels and movies. Clearly this is not organized because it is not intended to be used as a shopping tool, but is a coded message for communication to British spies.

Plus, the Dachshund looks like a worm with two legs.

Well, that's what it is.

Besides, this is Universal Export, not Exports. Makes you wonder exactly how much they export.

At least for the website, is it possible that in the section prior that you are given the option to choose how they are ordered?

Many places let you choose which method to use, so you can do your search by whichever criteria you may have in hand.

Otherwise, you better know what your dog's silhouette looks like!

UE is the cover company for MI6, not MI5 (MI6 is the external security service and MI5 is the internal). But as Fuzzy said, it's Universal Exports, not the Universal Export posted here.

Somebody help me out here- I'm either having a SERIOUS case of deja vu, or we've had this EXACT post before... anyone?
