Overleaping the mark

09/17/2009

Yep, its a recession and I know that everyone is trying to find ways of making their next buck.

I’m a great believer in ingenuity, in entrepreneurial flair, in people going the extra mile.

But there is the extra mile and there is too far. Way too far………

This little beauty came into my sweaty little hands from a friend who had received it at work.

The names have been removed to protect the innocent……

N.B. I should add that this was a genuine pitch by the individual involved

    @Sayya – It's indeed one of the most surprising ideas I've heard in quite a while! That said, from a British point of view, your comment that you'd "….toss it and act as though I never saw it…." given the subject matter had me in hysterics! http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=toss+off

    @FG – My wallet will not be letting out the moths on this particular occasion

    @class-factotum – I think you're safe. But you remember that mad guy you met in the pub in England…..

    @Fernando – I'll put you in contact!
