Last Post About Motorcycles and Money…Promise

Alright, this is the last post trying to raise money for the motorcycle I would like to have. After this post you will not hear anything else about it, unless I actually buy one. Tyler D. sent me a great link to a used motorcycle for $3900. Unfortunately, I did the math and even if I was to win the auction with the minimum bid, it would still cost roughly the same as a new bike once I had it delivered and paid the tax.

Now I’ve tried to appeal to the consumer side of my 11 readers by letting them know that if they purchase 3200 shirts, I would have the ability to afford a motorcycle. This was quite unfair of me. If this was to happen, each reader would have to spend roughly $3779 on swag. What would anyone want with $3779 worth of swag?(if any reader does want this much don’t let me dissuade you.)

So, I started thinking of other ways to make this much money. My first thought was maybe I could hold my blog for ransom and would promise not to blog again unless the ransom of $6400 was met; but as I thought of this I actually imagined 11 people clicking out of my blog simultaneously. Then I thought about trying to sell something that I had to raise the money; but as it turns out I have nothing worth that much, and I doubt I would even get $3 for my blog. After this thought, I decided to appeal to my 11 reader’s softer side. Right now for the small price of $6400 I will sell my smoking habit. That’s right, you can save a life, and keep me from getting on the iron lung (regardless of how cool it sound, I heard it’s not fun). I will quit cold turkey and never smoke a cigar, cigarette, or pipe after the money is deposited in to my paypal account. My wife would probably pay 3 times this much, but her money and my money come out of the same shallow pool. Now I doubt, any reader cares enough to spend that kind of money on my well being (besides it might be the nicotine that gives me my blogging power), but I have relatives with money and that say they care about me. So that’s it that was my last post about motorcycles and money. Tomorrow I’ll start to do the funny again.

When you figure out how to get the money, let me know. I could use some extra cash myself!

Good luck with your transportation woes, Doc.

Can you do some funny about money and motorcycles (and maybe monkeys!) all at the same time?
That would be SWEEEEEEET!

Hope you get your transpo problems resolved soon. I'll continue to keep an eye out for something.

I think you should post your picture on internet porn sites, and send them to Playgirl. They are always looking for man-meat, and a soldier boy like you should fit the bill.

Not that I want to dash your hopes into the ground, but I quit smoking over a year ago and still haven't been paid...

Hey Sean, I can't help you didn't think of this angle. But I wouldn't worry about it I don't think it's going to work.

I hate to break it to you but Wyatt Earp has the best advice on this matter.

It's not called a "moneymaker" for nothing and "shakin' it" is not popularly suggested for no reason, Doc.
G'luck with that!

What about the iron lung I'm going to need. I think I'm just going to have to save my money for my own selfish needs, but I'll extend the offer, I'll drop my 2 pack a day habit for $5,000 cash. And I mean cash. Doc, hope you get your problem solved soon.
