***  March 32nd issue:

 

You are a hoot!

Sheila

 

I look forward to this newsletter all the time–especially on April 1!

Thank you,

Michele

 

Happy April Fool’s too.

Amy

 

Cute!

Brooke

(That’s all?  Cute?)

 

Hilarious?  LOL?  ROTFL?  😉

 

 

So, how many outraged newbie readers did you hook this year? We actually talked about your witty, wicked and much-anticipated March 32 issue at dinner the other night. It was the first email I opened this morning. You did not disappoint!

 

I am disappointed, however, that #28, the Marketing Strategist for the Eight-Star Institute is not a real job. Imagine the stellar opportunities for marketing Eight-Star in the Lone Star State!

 

Thanks for a mirthful Monday,

 

Susan

 

HAHAHAHA! I won’t tell you how many I read before the light came on!

– Frank

 

Love it – thanks for making me smile!

Rachel

 

I had totally forgotten it was April Fool’s Day … until I saw your JOTW!

🙂

Karen

 

I think I’d like a few of these positions and be a great fit.

– G. A.

 

Loved the March 32 issue, Ned. You had me laughing out loud and almost made me wish I could read Old Norse (or was that Middle Norse?)!

 

How long did it take you to write it?

 

Happy April Fool’s Day–and Happy National Poetry Month,

Pat

 

(A year.)

 

My gosh; this is hilarious. I always thought this was job notices and for real. But it is freaking hilarious. Who are you?

S.D.

 

***  And this…

 

What is the below product? Has your normal product been “spooked?”

Figured you should see this in case you were not aware of it!

M.G.

 

(Ned: Who would go to such trouble do you think?)

 

***  Ned’s comments on the March 32nd issue:

 

First, I thought the 2013 March 32nd issue was pretty good.  I owe Mike Sorohan a huge thank you for his contribution.  This is a joint effort each year.  He derserves a huge amount of credit…if you liked it.  If you didn’t, it’s all my fault.  But here’s the thing, I received relatively little feed back this year, and most of what I received was very short comments like “Cute.”  Maybe the time has come to put this annual project away.
