A Red Faux Fur Cape and Loincloth
Got a press release recently that falls in the "I can't make this up" category. Where would we be without entertaining press releases? Actually, only a handful ever count as entertaining, but they do show up over the transom sometimes.
Since I don't want to actually provide the man any publicity -- even at the low level of a few Blogger and Facebook readers -- unless he gives me something in return, I'm changing his name, and the name of his book (though with the information I'm giving, Google will provide his name, if that's what you really want). I will say that he's a developer of expensive houses in an expensive part of the country who apparently chalks his success up to God.
Anyway, it's a long release, but this was my favorite graph: "Capt. Geoffrey T. Spaulding’s second book is the spiritual/inspirational The Thump -- a book that shows how to act on life’s great 'thump moments' -- embracing the rewards and responsibilities of a blessed life. He believes that responsible stewardship of his resources has been the key reason he has experienced such astronomical success and he has a deep belief that God presents life-changing opportunities, and it is up to us to share our time, talent and treasure with others less fortunate. Known for his flamboyant style, whether it be posing in a red faux fur cape and loincloth or dressed as an angel coming out of a coffin, it all comes down at the end to helping others. The Thump offers an inspiring yet practical guide for those who want to succeed at a higher level in the most important business of all -- the business of life!"
