This is mine:
Chuckles sends this tale out of San Francisco [where else] of a public interest campaign where they’re trying to get people to “pledge” money. Fine, fine – is it to force govt to lower taxation, is it to save the animals and the environment? Is it a new medical breakthrough?
Not in the least. It’s some guy trying to sell his coffee maker but to do that, you have to supply him with $50 000 before he deigns to make it for you.
There are then mugshots of “the team” who’ve committed to bring you this “major breakthrough”. So, some San Francisco PR person has thought gee, wouldn’t it be a wheez if we could present our sales pitch as a public interest campaign?
On yer bike.
