You Asked for It

I'm sure this is book(let) was meant along the lines of, "Oh, looky!  You expressed an interest in floral doilies, granny square housecoats, and . . . whatever's in that Christmas-themed photo (stuffed toys and thread ornaments?).  And we heard you.  We heard-- and answered--  your pleas for the granny square housecoat.  (You can thank us later.)  Aren't you lucky we read our fan mail?  We'd do almost anything for you, our loyal readers!"

However, to us contrary types, it comes across more like this:
you asked for these.

That's right-- YOU.  This is all your doing, and don't you try to deny it!
If you don't like it, you have no-one to blame but yourself. 

. . . I think it may be the lack of an exclamation point (or even capitalization, for that matter) that does it. . .
