Sign me UP!


I like that Edward D. Jones is the sort of shop that hires women, minorities AND the retarded! (I'm sorry, I meant autistic)!

Yikes...that assistant looks like she's straight off the East German olympic power-lifting team...


...and the goofball from "headquarters"...that's the kind of co-worker I worked hard to escape...he reminds me of a yappy little dog that whizzes on everything.  Call me shallow, but if that's the card I get in the mail, I lose interest quickly.

If I jump into this one, I have a feeling it will be a very large time commitment.

Be strong.  Resist the urge.  You're already in hot water for being such a meanie with that other guy.

I was not aware that EDJ hires blacks.

Joe, I feel myself yielding to the urge.

Apr 11, 2007 9:57 pm

Yeah, but you already know that you can hit the easy ones.

They're all easy. In fact, I could just attach my comments the back of a dog....

Apr 11, 2007 11:12 pm

let me get this straight: postcards like the ones we already get with realtor's pictures on them!


Well, joedabrkr could use his tgp avatar photo-that would be cute.


Sillyogolfballhette just needs to get a pose with a nine iron.


I imagine BH's postcard would be like Hugh's: have all of his playmates gathered around him by the pool.

Oops, I was trying to figure out how to send Imus a postcard. That first postcard may through him off, I believe<1% of investment representatives are black. The second one may remind him of management and well he is a little pizzed at them now, and third one, well she's just scary.
