Today, I read about a chap in Minnesota who got arrested for throwing $1000 onto a shopping Mall crowd from the 4th floor of a mall. This is possibly the winner of the ‘most ironic story of the year competition’. Why?
1/He did it while a choir sang let it snow
2/He’d just got divorced and lost his business.
3/ He’d invited his wife to the mall to see this stunt in the hope of getting his cat back.
4/ In the spirit of hopeless optimism, he felt that giving all this away might mean that he’d get it back in a ‘What goes around, comes around’ sort of way.
5/ He got arrested for his trouble. “It could have caused a serious situation”, said the authorities.
Yes, like people actually leaving a Mall with more money than they came in with!
Watch it HERE.
So to celebrate a great idea having had scorn poured all over it, the good people at standoutbooks are giving away copies of The Obsidian Pebble and a £25/$40 dollar Amazon voucher in defiance of the authorities.
YAY. Go on–before they’re all gone–or I get arrested.
