If I Were Evil…
Ian Lurie Apr 1 2009
I figured since it’s April 1, there’s no chance of a substantive post being heard through the thousands of comedic wannabes. So I went with stream of consciousness instead.
- I’d buy a lot more links. Really, I should. It seems to work anyway.
- I’d own a lot more internet access accounts, so I could spam StumbleUpon, Digg and other social networks.
- You wouldn’t be reading this blog. ‘Cause I sure wouldn’t want to tell anyone what I know. Luckily my need for attention outweighs my evil tendencies.
- I’d be rich.
- My guinea pigs would be far more nervous. They look tasty.
- I’d be an avid plagiarist.
- I would offer a $99 Rank Number One On Google Guaranteed package. Sign here, please.
- I would tell clients what they want to hear.
- I would write movies like Manos, the Hands of Fate, and then make my kids watch them. Mwahahahahahahaha…
- I’d hire 40,000 people abroad to click the PPC ads on this site. C’mon, guys, I make $2 a day. Are you kidding me?
- I sooo would’ve slapped that guy who said “All you can do is write“.
- I’d be less whiny.
- I’d correct everyone’s grammar. Oh, wait…
