Off topic: New marketing vocabulary
Thread poster: Narasimhan Raghavan
I came across this in a case of serendipidity. I was just idly browsing thrugh the Russian forum in the thread: Anglosaxon attitudes. This has run into 15 pages! I have to share it with my fellow Prozians, who do not usually go to the Russian forum. Now for the new marketing definitions:
What is Marketing ?
You see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and say, "I'm fantastic in bed." -- That's Direct Marketing.
You're at a party with a bunch of friends and see a handsome guy. One of your friends goes up to him and pointing at you says, "She's fantastic in bed." --That's Advertising.
You see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and get his telephone number. The next day you call and say,"Hi, I'm fantastic in bed." -- That's Telemarketing.
You're at a party and see a handsome guy. You get up and straighten your dress. You walk up to him and pour him a drink. You say, "May I," and reach up to straighten his tie brushing your breast lightly against his arm, and then say, "By the way, I'm fantastic in bed." -- That's Public Relations.
You're at a party and see a handsome guy. He walks up to you and says, "I hear you're fantastic in bed." -- That's Brand Recognition.
You're at a party and see a handsome guy. You talk him into going home with your friend. -- That's a Sales Rep.
Your friend can't satisfy him so he calls you. -- That's Tech Support.
You're on your way to a party when you realize that there could be handsome
men in all these houses you're passing. So you climb onto the roof of one
situated toward the center and shout at the top of your lungs, "I'm fantastic in bed!" -- That's Spam

So funny Narasimhan, thanks so much for sharing...
And I think you've just given the most succinct possible answer as to why, in Québec, spam is known as 'pourriel'
