how quickly we sell out

“It would be better if they had free hot dogs. That would be worth lying and saying you’re media.  I would cover any event with free hot dogs.”

i can’t give it away

I have seriously tried to give this to everybody in this room, and nobody wants it.

Never in my life have I ever been around a journalist who refuses free liquor. Now, more than 20 have refused “Domaine de Canton,” which is labeled as “French ginger liqueur.”

It even came with a recipe book. But once the bottle was cracked and people actually sniffed, it was over.

So now, it just sits on my desk in its pretty bottle. Good marketing, you know? It’s very pretty. And I’ll even admit that some of the recipes in the accompanying book don’t look bad at all. I’d be willing to cook with it, but I do feel pretty confident that ANYTHING you mixed this with would be immediately overpowered by ginger.

But if ginger’s your thing, party on. I got a whole bottle with your name on it.
