The Franwad Manifesto: The Long March Continues
At approximately 5 pm on Friday, 1st August, at the lovely turn of the century Dearborn Inn in a suburb of Detroit, a nine hour non stop meeting took place amongst Paul Steinberg, Mike Webster and Richard Solomon, attending as Seamus Muldoon. We met to discuss the prospective feasibility of the Franchise Killer Pre-Investment Due Diligence Academy (The FKPIDDA – The Farkapaedia).
Throughout the nine hour session, there was never any dead air. If you stopped talking to breathe, you lost your position, as someone else immediately started speaking, having been holding his breath waiting until you had to inhale.
Amidst the serious analytical conversational bytes there was a great deal of humor. The topics of these relaxing interludes included acerbic ridicule of those who were absent, the manner in which Dale Nabors configured his position in the Cuppy’s abortion, the recent AAFD award of encomia thereto, the last eight years of the Bush administration, and the religious beliefs of everyone other than the discussants.
The most immediate impact resulting from this meeting will be shown on the next quarterly financial report of the Stags Leap Winery.
The only person whose absence was sorely regretted was Sean Kelly. We really didn’t need the rest of you at all.
The result of the meeting
Happily, the result of the meeting was a continuing interest in the development of the Farkapaedia. Its functional potential was confirmed in everyone’s mind, and the requisite financial resources are believed potentially to be available. The UPL difficulties were resolved. Its possible sponsorship by BlueMauMau was discussed and left open, as Mr. BMM his own self was not there to confirm the availability of cojones on that issue.
The meeting adjourned promptly at 2 am on Saturday, 2nd August. It will reconvene when certain issues are closer to resolution and the tab for this first meeting is finally paid off.
