Corporate Sponsorship

Todays journal entry is brought to you by Mr. Happy Crack.

A few weeks ago I wrote an entry about some effective advertising I noticed in the New Yorker. Today I received this email:

Subject : Mr. Happy Crack says.....

Thank you for the nice words regarding our ad in The New Yorker. If you really want to "wow" the chicks, ride the bus wearing a Mr. Happy Crack tshirt.

We would like to reciprocate and send you a limited-edition tshirt (limited only to the amount we sell) at no charge. If your lovelife vastly improves, you know you have Mr. Happy Crack to thank.

What, um, is your size? Wow. Getting personal early on a Tuesday morning.

Since I am such a nice guy; I though I would ask permission before reproducing their email message. This was their response:

After consulting with the Board of Directors, we have approved your request of using the contents in your journal. Our chairman, Sidney Crackstein, is an out-and-out media whore and welcomes the publicity.

And I can speak from experience that a man in Mr. Happy Crack tshirt is a man who will always have a smile on his face. Of course, in my case it's due to my medication.

I like businesses with a sense of humour.

    The internets have been having fun with a recent opinion post from Byron York. Of particular ridicule is this portion: ... and his sky-high ratings…

  • Had a thought today

    I should copyright my DNA. Then if I were ever sued for paternity, I could counter-sue for copyright violations for the derivative work!

  • New 3 Mile Time

    Beat my old time by a few seconds, but the old time was with no incline, the new time is at 1% 3 miles @ 1% incline - 20 minutes 54 seconds.
