It appears the only way for people to believe a word you say these days is to have it monogramed onto your paperweight.

therefore, i propose a 'stencil your own paperweight.' choose your own slogan and you are 100% sure to get every sucker to believe it.

wow the ladies: " I have an enormous manhood"

impress your colleagues: "I am the most intelligent one amongst us"

cheat your boss: "I work hard every day to make you look good and never, ever spend all day on HB during working hours."

       Must admit I haven't noticed people going around believing the engravings on the paperweights in my office, which range from "courage" to "love" (in Chinese) to "Chase Home Equity 1-800-242-7324" depending on who gave me the paperweight in question. I suspect this idea suffers from bad science.

       i thought your idea was rubbish at first - but someone in my office told me they'd seen it on a paperweight somewhere - so croissant

       [DrCurry] certainly not bad science. there has been too much evidence this week that proves this works. bad satire possibly.   

       [contracts] i was being a little sarcastic with the examples.

       i was thinking a clear plastic or glass p/weight plus a software programme to print out perfectly shaped messages to stick to the bottom. really simple. <i wa aware of the reagan thing, kindda why i posted this. didn't really think anyone would take it seriously but hey.

etherman, Jun 22 2004
  

       I think it is a thing you stick in your pocket to protect it fom ink stains.
