Help Sponsor an Enron Executive... Hurry!(7 posts)

Help Sponsor an Enron Executive... Hurry!MB1
Feb 25, 2002 4:20 PM
Dear kindhearted Americans ...

Now that the holiday season has passed, please look into your heart to help those in need. Enron executives in our very own country are living at or just below the seven-figure salary level ... right here in the land of plenty. And as if that weren't bad enough, they will be deprived of it as a result of the bankruptcy and current SEC investigation.

But now, you can help! For only $20,835 a month, about $694.50 a day (that's less than the cost of a large-screen projection TV), you can help an Enron executive remain economically viable during his time of need. This contribution by no means solves the problem, as it barely covers their per diem, but it's a start. Almost $700 may not seem like a lot of money to you, but to an Enron
executive, it could mean the difference between a vacation spent in DC, golfing in Florida, and a Mediterranean cruise. For you, seven hundred dollars is nothing more than rent, a car note, or mortgage payments. But to an Enron executive, $700 will almost replace his per diem.

Your commitment of less than $700 a day will enable an Enron executive to buy that home entertainment center, trade in the year-old Lexus for a new Ferrari, or enjoy a weekend in Rio.

HOW WILL I KNOW I'M HELPING? Each month, you will receive a complete financial report on the executive you sponsor. Detailed information about his stocks, bonds, 401(k), real estate, and other investment holdings will be mailed to your home. You'll also get information on how he plans to invest his golden parachute. Imagine the joy as you watch your executive's portfolio double or triple! Plus upon signing up for this program, you will receive a photo of the executive unsigned -- for a signed photo, please include an additional 50.00).

Put the photo on your refrigerator to remind you ofther people's suffering.

HOW WILL HE KNOW I'M HELPING? Your Enron executive will be told that he has a SPECIAL FRIEND who just wants to help in a time of need. Although the executive won't know your name, he will be able to make collect calls to your home via a special operator just in case additional funds are needed for unexpected expenses.

YES, I WANT TO HELP!
I would like to sponsor an Enron executive. My preference is checked below:
[ ] Mid-level Manager
[ ] Director
[ ] Vice President (Higher cost; please specify which department)
[ ] President (Even higher cost; please specify which department)
[ ] CEO (Contribution: Average Enron janitor monthly salary x 700)
[ ] Entire Company
[ ] I'll sponsor an Exec most in need. Please select one for me.

SPECIAL LIMITED TIME OFFER
Already an Enron supporter? Don't worry, in this troubled economy, there are many executives who need your help. Ford today is laying off 35,000. The NASDAQ
is deflated. Now you can show your patriotism and do something about it. The Invisible Hand will allow supporters to substitute executives from any
downtrodden company listed on ****edcompany.com. You will never own a Bentley, wear hand-tailored silk shirts, or have a gentleman's gentleman; why deprive a worthy executive from ascending, and more importantly, from maintaining the lifestyle he so richly deserves? Imagine the feeling of satisfaction, the pure joy of knowing
that your sponsor ex-executive at the former spiltmilk.com will be able to have his caviar and eat it too.

*It's just that easy -- do it now!* Please charge the account listed below ___________ per day and send me a picture of the Enron executive I have sponsored, along with my very own Enron "Keep America Strong, Sponsor an Enron Executive: Ask Me How!" T-shirt to wear proudly.

how do I know for sure that ALL of my money is going directly to the needy Enron Exec? How much of my contribution will be eaten up by various "administrative" costs?

Here is a chance to rise above the greed that drives our society and do something truly noble, don't debase this unblemished opportunity with doubt and suspiscion. Are you truly worthy?

..cancel my support of the poor kids in Peru. Let'em forage for food 'cause there's a needy executive right here in the good 'ole USA. I'll help - I just want to support Ken Lay. Afterall, he had no idea that anything bad was happening. He was duped. His wife cried. He must be completely innocent. Oh the pain, the suffering, the liquidation of millions of dollars worth of realestate! Sign me up.

I think my support will be in the form on the worthless shares of Enron that my clients own. Bastards. (I'm a stockbroker and luckily only two of my clients chose to buy that company)
On the advice of my attorney, I'll take the 5th on that. nmMB1
