Hallo, all! Have some cake.
I’ve been thinking – now that Electrica in the Desert has 500 followers, we could start a cult! I hadn’t given much thought to who would make the best leader, but – what? You say you want me? That’s one vote: I accept.
Bow down before me.
Say, what about finance? For a modest $1,000 each, we’ll have $500,000 to invest. Just make your checks out to me – I might as well collect them now. I know people at a couple of Hedge Funds, and it will be a lot simpler if I handle everything. One less thing for you to worry about.
Me? A Communist? I don’t recall that information. Oh, but you do?Well, I’m not a real communist anyway, more of a socialist-Marxist or prehaps a Marxist-socialist.
No,I don’t see any inconsistency there.
But you do, eh? Still? Prehaps you’ve been reading too much Trotsky on a full stomach, then. Ayn Rand, you say?
Oh my, is..I mean, is that still allowed?
I mean what I meant to say, yes of course, is that these are Cuban hedge funds with offices right in downtown Habana…yes, that does change things, doesn’t it? Quite all right, then.
No I still have no names to provide. I don’t recall. I still don’t have that information.
Well, I see it’s getting late, so I’ll adjourn the meeting now. No need to decide right away. Only, do give some thought to joining a small, private army – what’s that? Why, mine of course. A force of 500 could be very effective, but small enough to conceal if one had the acreage…
What, all of you already say no?
I see. I wonder if I could trade you in to WordPress for 500 different followers.
You know, it isn’t nearly as much fun having 500 followers as I thought it would be. I remember the carefree days when there were only 499 of you as if it were yesterday.
Oh wait. That was yesterday.
Ah, that was a simpler time…
