Pull up a chair, rich guy!

November 30, 2008

Readers ask me all the time, “Bob, you’ve delivered pizzas to a lot of rich people’s houses. So what kind of furniture do they have?”

Well, take a peek at a Millionaire Fair, where folks with too much money go to spend it.

Rich people LOVE this chair, and you can see why. It allows up to one person to enjoy DVDs in a home entertainment center, and that looks to be just about the right number for this goober here.

Or, you can buy eight of them to use as dining room chairs, assuming your table is 50 feet long. But be careful. Pulling out the chair for the woman next to you may lead to unwanted hernias.

Also, you could get some dirty looks when you say, “Hey, Buddy, you mind running over here with that tub of margarine?”

Robert, I am stunned that you misspelled margarine. You always have such high-brow material, I just assumed you were a brainiac. Another bubble burst.

Well, it’s spelled correctly now. Thank God you’re the only one who read it.

Don’t be ridiculous. There are, have been and always will be brilliant people who cannot spell worth a damn, and idiots who win spelling bees.

Wondering . . . is that a model or a real rich guy in the picture?
