And how do they thank me?
By ALLOWING me to ENTER A CONTEST to win a shirt.
What? Thanks. Really. With his readership numbers, I stand as much chance to win a shirt as I do to win the BOSTON MARATHON. Ok. Maybe I have more of a chance to win the shirt, but only maybe.
No offense to "Brain Trust (which is about 90% Lady J and 10% Jamoosh) ", but I think the percentages were skewed a bit. If my wife were truely the 90%, it would have gone something like this:
Me: "Hey, Gene suggested that we 'sponsor' him. What do you think about that? Maybe we could allow him to enter a contest where we give away a t-shirt?"
My Wife: "Allow him to enter? Allow? I think that we should GIVE him a t-shirt, find some way too
Me: "wow. what great ideas. I'll post that in my blog today, and let's get this thing kicked off over the weekend!!!"
My Wife: "I love you soooo much."
Me: "You took the words right out of my mouth." (oohhhh, it musta been while you were kissing me.....)
Instead, I am allowed to enter. Ever see "Real Genius"? Remember Lazlo, the professional student who lived in the bowels of the dorm? As the film progresses, he figures out how many times he needs to submit entries into a contest so that he can win all of the prizes. At the end, he is bummed that he only won something like 97%. Well, as soon as the rules are announced, I will channel my inner Lazlo......
Or, to give everyone else a fighting chance, Jamoosh can simply 'give' me a shirt, and I promise to wear it respectfully, and NOT use it to buff my truck.
I'm just sayin'......
