Shameless commercialism

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Sep 10, 2003

In exchange for a $166 million payment, the City of New York has designated Snapple as its official beverage.

In our efforts to stay on the cutting edge of business innovation, CWN is prepared to open negotiations with beverage producers. For a mere fraction of the cost-- say, $1.66 million (and that's negotiable)-- your product could become the Official Soft Drink of CWNews. Don't hesitate; call now. This opportunity won't last.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

Dear reader: If you found the information on this page helpful in your pursuit of a better Catholic life, please support our work with a donation. Your donation will help us reach seven million Truth-seeking readers worldwide this year. Thank you!

    I take my hat off to Psuedo-D. By far the better suggestion.

    We can do better. Perhaps a series of Lukewarm Bishop inaction figures. When you pull the string they mouth a series of warm platitudes, perhaps comment on the "Energy Field" around you [the Wiccan doll] and ask how you feel about the 10 commandments. Could also be sold separately with civilian clothes so as not to alarm secular buyers.

    I don't own a beverage company, but I do have a dog. I bid $5 for Emma to be the official dog of CWNews.
