Tied up in a late meeting at work, and unable to pick up your
kids from school or daycare? Just call Gruel After School. A
quick call from your cellphone, and we will deliver a warm,
nutritious bowl of gruel to your children as they wait on the
street corner for you to come and pick them up.
||Here's a jingo for the advertising campaign:
||Life can be drag,
And waiting such a fag.
So go on, don't be cruel,
Go ahead and order,
Gruel After School!
||Perfect for those suddenly-deprived children of the boom economy ...
||"I can't buy you a cellphone, honey, but you can have a nice bowl of gruel."
||"Just feed gruel, to a heart that's true..."
||Yes, 1percent, in these troubled times of tanking stock
markets gruel may become a true luxury. A parent could
phone in an order while driving between job interviews.
But if the bust has left you jobless, how to pay? Maybe
Gruel After School needs to have some sort of prepaid
Gruel Insurance Plan (GIP). You could pay into the GIP
during boom times, and then after the next layoff, gruel
would be paid out to the littleuns to sustain them until
the next job comes through.
