Is this a set up? HAHAHA


Dear Mr Solomon, I recently came across the 'Blue MauMau' forum ( regarding a company called 'Spudstogo' where you had posted comments.  I am researching this company with a view to investing in one of their franchises here in the UK.  I was very surprised to read the comments that were made on the Blue MauMau site and I am now concerned about investing.  I have spoken to the Master Franchisee in the UK and he has painted a picture of an already rapidly expanding successful company in the US who are venturing out internationally.  He emphasised how this was a rare and unique opportunity for myself to join at these early stages to receive large rewards.  I felt very positive about this potential venture until I read the comments made on the Blue MauMau site.  He boasted that the Spudstogo name is well known throughout the United States and likened them to the next Mcdonalds but serving healthy food.  He stated Spudstogo have many stores all across the U.S.  I have tried to locate some information regarding Spudstogo for myself and some details of store locations in the U.S. as I wanted to do some background research to make sure the facts I was told were factual.  Please could you help me regarding further information about this company and in particular would you be kind enough to give me some contact details for their existing stores in the US, so that I can contact them myself for further information.Any information or assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated and kept confidential.  I merely wanted to safeguard my investment.Best Regards

What if the Item 20 Ranter became a SpudsToGo franchisee?

It could be a perfect match!

Whee's the beef?

I can't find the article that SpuddiePie was gonna write describing me as something worse than everyone already knows I really am. Has anyone seen it? Where can I find it? I need a good hoot today. I wonder if he used www.SeamusMuldoon,com for his source material.

Also disappointed

I was looking forward to hearing the dirt on that low-life Solomon; it just ain't the same when Solomon himself brags about what a degenerate he is: it sounded so much more scandalous when Spuddy was telling the tale.

And how about seeing the mug shot of Mr. MauMau hauled off to the pokey for the heinous offense of being head of this BMM zoo? Would Mr. MauMau have one of those crazed Nick Nolte-style photos, or a glowering OJ Simpson-style look?

Enquiring minds want to know!

You bring up a good point

SpudsToGo's involvement, brief though it may have been, brought untold amusement to me, and to many others I am sure.  I especially enjoyed the twisted irony in his repeated proclaimations that not only did he know exactly what he was doing, but that in so doing, he had the best interests of the company in mind.  He probably had in mind the saying that there is no such thing as bad publicity, but he likely had not heard of the obscure, and heretofore unknown, ending to that quote: 

"No publicity is bad publicity; however, sometimes you can f--- things up so badly that it turns out to be bad publicity after all."

Speaking of potatoes

On a quiet Friday, as we remember Spuddy Pie, let us not forget the wisdom of Mr. Potatoe himself, Dan Quayle.

The best part

I sure hope he gets the material from my treatise on geriatric masturbation:

Speaking about Potatoes and Oxymorons & Government Speech

Why don't you boys stop playing with each other on the Article Comments and get over to Political Activism and talk about the new name of the UFOC and the NEW product of FranData called Unit Performance Data.

Maybe DD and the FDD and the Unit Performance Data is going to bring some real changes to franchise disclosure law.

New FTC Rule

 Is a non-event for the most part.

But I will miss when an attorney for the other side who is not experienced in franchising asks me a question to which I am able to simply respond: "You Fock"

Solomon may even stop his due diligence program, which consists of the franchisee asking him "Should I buy the franchise" and Solomon responding "The disclosure document is called You Fock for a reason, and it is an accurate title"

Oh, by the way!

that fokker was a mescerschmidt!
