My Grandmother used to have these "Sayings" or old adages hung up all over her house when I was growing up. You remember them I'm Sure. Sayings like ..
"Come in, sit down, relax, converse...
Our house doesn't always look like this,
Sometimes it's even worse!"
or the ever famous..
"If your so damned smart, Why ain't you rich??
Thats what I keep askin myself...Which leads me to believe that I ain't so very smart!
But some folks are, and here's a prime example...
One night in 1975, an unemployed Ad Exec named Gary Dahl was hanging out in a bar listening to his friends bitch about their pets. That gave him the perfect idea for a pet...A Rock!! He spent the next 2 weeks writing The Pet Rock Training Manual, which included istructions on how to house-train the Rock.(Place it on some old newspapers, The Rock will know what the papers are for, and will require no further istructions.) He had a friend design a box shaped like a pet- carrying case-complete with air holes and a bed of straw-then filled them with rocks that he bought at a building supply store for a penny apiece. The Pet Rock debuted in August of 1975 and sold for $3.95; By the end of October he was shipping 10.000 a day!! The fad encouraged a host of imitations, as well as an entire Pet Rock service industry, including dude ranches, hair care products, and a burial at sea kit..The fad completely died out in 1976...
I need a brain-storm .....Instead of a brain-fart.... Peace
