I have started a new company called MegaTardis Consulting. We are selling the

The owner will gain the deep, spiritual satisfaction of owning these time
honored steps to documentation Nirvana. If you act now, you can enroll in one
of our courses taught inconveniently at a bad Howard Johnsons in some small
city in Northern Idaho. Our classes will cover the basics of a business

1. Registration and printing of badges customized with a name, possibly yours!
2. Mass consumption of thin, tepid coffee with Cremora-like dust in
sealed packets.
3. Waxy pastries filled with translucent jelly-esque slime with embedded
Fruti-Nubs(TM) imitation fruit-like chunks.
4. Out of focus PowerPoint Slides.
5. Inaudible instructors.
6. Reams of paper with text on each page. Some pages have drawings that
look "techie".
7. A segmented pyramid image which summarizes an insanely complex thought into
four bullet points.
8. A blue survey card you can forget to fill out.
9. Opportunities for extra-marital affairs with other conference
attendees. (Only if you purchase the "Executive's Luncheon and
Pre-conference Roman Orgy")*
10. A colorful certificate on VeloLux Imitation Lamb's Skin, hand signed by

Seminar fees are non-refundable. Complaints are not allowed.

And if you have a lot of money to burn, you can purchase a 1-on-1 coaching
session with me. I'll come to your place of business and make foul noises
while you work. After a day with me bugging you, you'll be so happy to get
back to work you're productivity will soar.

So what the hell are you waiting for. You need this or you and your company
will die. If you are not RMTTCM Level ZX-1 GT Coupe All-Wheel Drive certified
by May 1, 2001 you could be held up to contemptuous ridicule by 3 or 4 people
on the Internet.

Act now! Your documentation projects suck without us!
