Just Doing Their Part

My kids are outside right now contributing to the downfall of American civilization. They have set up a stand in the front yard with a sign advertising 'Suicide Drinks' for 25 cents. They have concocted a horrid brew out of water, slugs, glue, and dirt and have labeled it for its likely result upon quaffing.

There must be a bad influence in their lives somewhere. If only I could find it...

At least real Spam comes with a clearly marked blue label.

Jeff,
You do realize, I hope, that kids selling "Suicide Drinks" for 25 cents is a great story hook.

And it's pretty darn funny!

Is this the beginning of an enterprise set to rival Starbucks in its global domination?

So how much profit did they make?

Not surprisingly, an ad campaign that consists of inviting passing cars and pedestrians to pay for their own suicide didn't bring in any revenue. Once I decided that having them out on the lawn shouting to anyone within earshot about the features and benefits of suicide was not a good idea and so shut them down, they decided to rework their product into an invisible cow and sell that. Still no takers.
