As you know, I received a non-pink pink slip the other day. At first, things seemed bleak, but as the saying goes: “When one door closes, a mailbox opens and in that mailbox is a barely glued flyer containing the most important documents on earth.”
This arrived yesterday. I got the feeling that it was extremely urgent (I’m psychic) so I threw the mail on the table, ate five Reese mini-eggs and flipped through Entertainment Weekly. My heart pounded in anticipation when I remembered nine hours later that I received something important in the mail.
It was like a gift from the gods of direct mail mass marketing. Their names are Bob and Gennifer:
I could win a car or a 3D TV or an iPAD 3 or a Kindle (not a Kindle Fire? Boo!) if I just matched three like symbols. Amazingly I had two of each….what could the center spot be???
This was nearly as thrilling as the four to five chain emails I receive weekly from work colleagues that tell me unspeakable horror will befall me if I do not forward to 10 “lucky” “friends”. This was almost as exciting as the day I received a paper prayer rug from a post office box calling itself “Saint Matthew’s Church.” The helpful letter told me I could use a placemat bearing Jesus’s face to pray for a car just like Jesus did when he fed the masses at Walmart.
Was my prayer answered?
This is the American Dream, my friends. Why just a mere two days ago, I was adrift.
Now I can go to some random mall parking lot, and insert a key with metal the consistency of a yogurt top, into an American Dream Machine™.
I wonder what it will be?
Could it be this, and then I could have a new profession of delivering prayer rugs and credit card applications to others?
Could it be a hog, and then I could have a legitimate midlife crisis a few years early?
Could it be a real hog?
Will it help me compensate for my unusually tiny penis?
Will it be a gas guzzler?
Will it even be a car??
So much incredibly urgent excitement.
Yes, I may soon be unemployed, but I will have a dope ride to park in the driveway when I stay inside and become the shape of a Reese mini egg due to the constant eating of said eggs.
You can have this too. Simply forward this to 10 friends or else the world will explode.
All the best,
