Just received a spam message that start out like this:
Let's get one thing out of the way immediately - I am not a business. I'm just an individual offering you some information which I have found beneficial to me. This isn't some hocus pocus hair-brained scheme that's not exactly legal.
It's an MLM scheme, of course. And in my barely-awake state it occurred to me that they really should've started out like this:
Let's get one thing out of the way immediatelyI'm out to make a fast buck, and I think you're dumb as toast.
Hey, truth in advertising. Honesty can get you a long way. MLM for dummies!
(I have Susan to thank for the phrase "dumb as toast," btw. (Not in her journal, in email.))
