Have I got an idea for you? Boy Howdy! Wait until you get a load of this one.
I recently returned to the US from a trip to the Middle East and I highly recommend going. Some spots are a bit shady at the moment, so beware. Others, however, are just downright fabulous. But I digress. Travel advice is not what I wanted to tell you about.
While I was over in the Middle East, I noticed that none of the local Muslims were drinking alcohol. Can you believe it? They weren’t drinking any at all! And in that sun my mouth was practically crying for a cold beer.
Mr. Busch, I always hear about untapped markets, but are you thinking what I’m thinking? I mean, talk about your all time opportunities!
|There is one thing going through this man’s mind: Somebody beer me.|
What I see is here is the perfect chance for you to create new “revenue streams” for your company. There are no competitors over there, so you’ll have the market cornered. The way I see it, it’s a win-win situation. You broaden your consumer pool, while the Muslims get crunked up.
Now, the Muslims I spoke to said they don’t drink alcohol because it’s against their religion, but as good God-fearing Christians, both you and I know that religious rules are negotiable. I mean “thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s belongings?” Come on. I guarantee that as soon as Muslims get a taste of Busch or Bud Ice, they’ll drop their pesky “no alcohol” religious belief immediately. I know I was hooked the first time a Busch touched my lips!
Mr. Busch, I’m so convinced that this idea will work, that I’d like to offer you my services free of charge for the first 24 hours*. I want to jump in with both feet on this one, so please get back to me ASAP. If I don’t hear from you by noon tomorrow, I will be forced to call the Miller Brewing Company.
