Yesterday was Election Day and I was thinking about how rarely I take a firm stand on political issues.  This is because I'm indecisive, meek, easily swayed and ill-informed.  (Oh, and afraid that someone might yell at me).  But, like Dr. Peter Venkman in Ghostbusters who had a rule (or more of a guideline) never to get involved with possessed people:

A Guideline, Not a Rule!

there is one issue about which, I too, have an inviolable rule.

Okay, maybe it's more of a guideline.

I won't buy an article of clothing with the name of the manufacturer - designers like Calvin Klein, Liz Claiborne, Juicy Couture, or Guess - splashed across the chest .  It seems counter-intuitive for me to to pay  a multi-billion dollar conglomerate to serve as their advertising vehicle.  Shouldn't Cal or Liz be paying me?

Cause there's a lot of real estate "up there" and I could conceivably become very wealthy in this way.

Interested?  Inquire within.  Or "up there."


  1. I have some "real estate" myself. Let me know if any opportunities arise.

  2. First of all, you made a Ghostbusters reference and that is just great. I would add that when you're debating whether to buy a t-shirt with the name of the brand spread on the chest that you think 4th dimensionally, as Doc Brown would say in Back to the Future. It is completely counter-intuitive. What does it say about you? That you're a thoughtless zombie who wears brand for the sake of social appearance? Some people have already made money on this idea. See for yourself:
