*** Terms and conditions apply


*** Listen, we know everyone likes a
good deal, but good grief, we couldn’t afford
the rent on these posh New York offices,
or the mural in the executive
washroom, if we actually paid out
on this outrageous offer. So get real:
you are not eligible if you are
bald, foreign, introverted or stupid.
If you’re a chef or a plumber, no way.
Pro athletes need not apply. Same for cops.
We love hunky guys named Cole.  (Just kidding).
Actually, unless you’re a drug lord,
you are willing to bonk our CEO,
or you have a lawyer on six figures
you can lean over and kiss your tuckus.
It’s time for our massage. Have a nice day.

Compact and powerful-- such a strong message here re our culture of greed..or that 1 percent's culture. This piece would incite and satisfy those able and willing to take a stand...xxxj

You said it, man. It's 'if you ain't us you're them,' and them don't make the cut. The privileged don't even have to go bald anymore, though I'm not too sure about the stupid condition.
