bookofjoe can make you rich


Sure, you laugh — when pigs fly.


Anyway, you scoff.

Well, guess what?

Jacques–Paul Rozand, creator of the Spaghetti Plate (above and below), featured here on February 7 of this year, isn't scoffing.

Here's the email I received from him last evening:

    Thanks for everything Joe.

    People are telling me I am going to be a millionaire before Christmas 2006.

    I am going to retire this year, age 33.

    Your friend,


I recall his initial email to me a couple months ago: he was discouraged, depressed and saw himself at a complete impasse as to getting word of his wonderful invention out to the world at large.


In a last gasp effort he contacted me and told me about it.

The rest, as you can read above, is history.

So perhaps the next time I feature some half–baked creation from my own fevered pea brain or from one of my wonderfully creative readers around the world you won't snicker quite as loudly.

I know I won't.

I've decided to name this new arm of bookofjoe "Bizarro World adVenture Capital."

See, the idea is that I take your idea and bring it to the world's attention: you get rich and I get nothing.


If that isn't Bizarro World enough for you then I don't know what is.

Tribute to the power of suggestion:

Just glancing at the headlines of today's posts, I read this one as "bookofjoe can make you itch." Then guess what happened.

You get nothing?


Vicarious thrills are the stuff of life!

You are an impresario, my friend.
