An ad that attracts droves

| Gishteq | 10 Comments

I have been contemplating it now for some time, and after much rumination I have decided to place an advertisement in the local newspapers in order to make myself known and attract droves of rich and willing customers. The advertisement will be forty by forty centimeters and it will cost me € 90.90 for a single placement. I have a chosen a simple and straight-forward approach, and this is what it will look like:

For all you unfortunate souls out there who are unable to decipher all this gutteral Dutch drivel, I will attempt to translate it into readable English. Here goes:

Great ad. Good luck!.Love,Maman

Very nice ad Kiffin! Have you gotten any response yet?

How much is € 168.40 in American currency?

For those unfamiliar with the exchange rate bewteen US dollars and Euros, one Euro is now 1.10135 dollars (25-May-2003). So that means the ad will cost me around $, including tax (19%) bringing it to a grand total of $119.13. Kind of expensive when you think about it. For those interested in a web-based conversion site, check out

Now that the ad has been out there for a couple of days, is there any action? We gotsta know! ;-)

The ad doesn't go out until this upcoming Monday. Will definitely keep you kind folks posted.

Hi, Kiffin, It's an excellent ad and I wish you much success with it. We are all pulling for you.
Love to the whole family,

What a great site!
