I’ve just received an “invitation” accompanied by a cheap serving dish made in China. I’m invited, as a “thought leader,” to something called SANG in Las Vegas. When you go to the web site you find the usual suspects have organized this, all the “hot shot” marketing stuff promising you’ll make $40 million in the ensuing 15 minutes. All that for $5,000 or so, and let’s hope the refreshment breaks are good.
The invitation, a card sent with the serving dish in an “express” looking envelope, includes the following, and I AM NOT KIDDING YOU:
“You are cordially invited to join the worlds top thought leaders….” How many of them are thought leaders in punctuation would you think?
It’s by “invitation only.” If you want mine, let me know.
