AHH THE VALUE OF MEMBERSHIP|
Who doesn't like to belong to some sort of elite group? Who at one point hasn't thought about trying to sneak into the Harvard club at one point or another. We still have a stack of Princeton Club napkins we break out for potential investors that were left over from a sexual harassment seminar last year. Something about them just says, "Class!"
The trick, of course, is to belong to a group that few other people can belong to. Think about it, the real difference between the Harvard Club and the 700 Club? With a big enough check, anyone can be a member of 700 Club. That's why one is taken so seriously and perhaps the other is not.
Some of the smarter employees as spudWorks last year made the intelligent decision to start a clique inside the company before one was formed leaving them out. The result, the President & CEO takes them out to lunch at least once a week to gain some sort of admittance. No word yet, but it's not seen as happening.
Of course, on the other hand, there are always those who believe that no membership is a badge of something or other. That leaves us with the question, "But then, don't you belong to a group of people who belong to nothing?" It's all in how you look at it anyway.
Well, a new club has opened. spudWorks user registration is now upon us. Only the first million users who sign up for the registration will receive the newsletter filled with wit, charm, and the occasional important public service message. You can belong to this club by clicking on the register link and sending in your info.
We know, it's been asked, "What else do you get but a stupid newsletter?" Well, believe us, inane email is not the end of the road for the spudWorks elite (as we're calling the first million members of the spudWorks registration), you will also have access to post to our boards, meet strange and interesting people of the opposite sex, undoubtedly win a free trip somewhere that you've always been wanting to go, and, as if what's been listed isn't enough already, you may just become famous. Don't ask us how, we really don't know, but it's bound to happen.
The real question is why would you bother with four years at Harvard to join their stupid club, or send a check into the 700 club to go to heaven when by clicking on this link you can belong and be a member of the newest elite on the planet for nothing. We also promise we won't give up your email, even in event of duress.
For some people smokey wood paneled rooms with old men talking about the days back at the old school is their idea of perfection. For others, it's spudWorks. You know which it is for you.
