Weekly dose of satire

It turns out the whole site is excellent:

“Someone I knew used to sign off their emails with this story about a failed businessman selling wisdom in a desolate marketplace with no customers.

As the old proverb says, if you have something really worth selling, pay for some other company’s subsidiary brand to subsume the individuality of your product for the sake of publicity.”
