Sometimes I'm answering an email and I want to end it with a joke or something witty to impress the person, but I'm feeling pretty uninspired so I just fire off a boring email.

There's a mint to be made here or at least a crazy startup. Okay, so I have this boring email to, lets say, a girl I want to impress. I quickly forward it to the "witty people company" which is just a bunch of out of work writers and comedians sitting in front of computers. They spice up my email and charge me a small amount like a dollar or two or so. I get the email back in few minutes and incorporate the changes.

As long as they dont keep using the same gags or cut&paste it should work out. Perhaps with a guarantee for originality. A situation where someone gets four emails with the same joke or humorous observation and figures out you've got a ghost-writer shouldn't happen.

       Here's an amusing thought for you: Producers of mass email containing varied content to pass filters think they're pretty witty.

       Oh, yeah! That would be the perfect job for me.

       I wish I had one of these for when I put in my Halfbakery ideas, to make me seem like an intelligent, witty person, which I am not, but still, I'd like to dream.

       Sounds nice but what happens when your contacts talk to you one on one, do you repeat other peoples lines?
