So, a booth babe and a geek walk in to a bar. The geek says to the booth babe, “Hey, what do you think of the new SQL?” The booth babe says, “Gosh, I don’t know… I didn’t even see the first one!”
Sorry. That’s all I’ve come up with. Any other punchline suggestions? Suggestions you’d feel comfortable telling your mother? Telling MY mother?
On a related note, I’m also putting an MPO (Marketing Promotional Opportunity) out for my blog. One of my friends sent me this horoscope, and I think it is on to something. Per the article, one might be tempted to solicit a, say, “Longhorn” sponsorship for one’s genitals, but I think more realistic would be a sponsorship of the name of one’s blog, as in “So, a booth babe and <your name here> walk in to a bar…” If your name has “Rocker!” in it, you get a discount on the MPO.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Sports franchises sell the naming rights to
their stadiums. Baseball’s San Francisco Giants play at AT&T Park, for
instance. Then there are the parents who’ve sold the naming rights to
their unborn children on eBay. Inspired by these precedents, I’m thinking
about selling the naming rights to the astrological signs. Instead of just
“Aquarius,” I could maybe convince Nike to invest in calling it “Nike’s
Aquarius.” Better yet, maybe I could hawk the rights (at a lower rate, of
course) to organizations whose cultural influence I actually respect:
Burning Man’s Aquarius or Greenpeace’s Aquarius. Given your current
astrological omens, you should entertain an idea like this. Maybe you
could add a corporate sponsor as your new middle name or as the name
of your blog or your pet or your genitals. Consider it, Aquarius. It’s the
perfect time to think outside the box in regard to bringing more money
into your life.
