We get tons of promotional emails from companies seeking to "activate brand awareness" for their product, or whatever the meaningless MBA jargon is right now. Most of 'em get the ol' "that's nice — delete!" treatment. But brother, when you say the magic words "Tony Stewart" and "monkey," I am in like Hamlin, baby:
I want it. I want it. I want want want it. But if I'm going to get it, I'm going to have to do like everyone else and win it via eBay. Check here for the Tony Stewart Foundation auction; bidding begins June 4 and runs through June 14.
So, yeah, this one makes the cut. Now, auction off the monkey, Tony, and we'll get you on the front page of Yahoo!.
