OPEN LETTER TO PAUL EDMONDSON

  1. Greek One profile image78
    Greek Oneposted 5 years ago

    Dear Mr. Edmondson

    I have been a loyal Hubber for over 2 years now, and through my Hubs, I have made your organization dozens of dollars.

    I have stayed loyal despite Panda (not really sure what 'Panda' is, but people seem to complain about it a lot), and have devoted countless hours to helping people find the one true God (my God, that is) in the religious forums.

    I have also devoted hours upon hours to your site, despite the fact that my own adult venture: "www.PicturesOfGreekOneInTheNudeEatingAChickenSaladSandwich.com" has suffered as a consequence.

    As THE model Hubber, a fellow former resident of San Luis Obispo, and a graduate from California Polytechnic University (what!?!!??  i could have lived and graduates from these places too!!!).. I think it is time you reciprocate my contributions to your website.

    Clearly HubPages needs a staff member from Canada who can represent it up here in the Great White North, assure that the 'internet' thingy (not really sure what that is either, but I am a fast study) is in god working order, and execute (with discrete intensity) any fellow Canadian Hubbers who complain too much (....or just for sport).

    In exchange for these services, I would reluctantly accept $159 American dollars (or Canadian, depending upon the exchange rate when this offer is accepted).

    Looking forward to your reply, and to your counteroffer.

    Yours Truly,
    Greek One

    PS.. I am also a big fan of YieldBuild (although I am not really sure what that is either).

      " I have made your organization dozens of dollars."

      Hub Pages would be a fool to resist such a major money maker. I hope to have such wealth someday.

      Capitulate and pay, I say!

                    Giants = NFC

                    Jets = AFC

                    Giants are tough but Im not feeling them going all the way.

                    Jets under Rex. . well now that is something to root for. .. ..

                    and since your wife wants you to go work and clean the house. .the best way these days is to go Green (he he in more ways then one wink

          How did you come up with $159?  Don't you feel you are worth more, Greek One?  If this does not pan out, were you planning to do it for free as an Elite Hubber.?  Testing, testing . . .

    If this works out for you, Mr. One, I'm going to ask to be in charge of HP South - for the Deep South. After all, it's as different from the rest of the U.S. as Canada is...maybe more! I can also serve as interpretor/translator for hubs written in Deep Southernese because I'm fluent in the language.

    I would also like to recommend this fine gentlemen be considered for employment in some position that will pay him enough to live comfortably in whatever that county north of us is called.  Is it Halifax?  Antartica?  I know it isn't Afghanistan, because that's beside Turkey, I think.  Though why anyone would want to live up there is beyond me. 

    Well, it doesn't matter, because the important thing is that encyclopedic knowledge of ancient Etruscan pottery is plainly lacking in HP staff and the Greek fella could fill that void admirably.  As could I, but I have other commitments and cannot be paid in Canadian dollars.

    @Greek One

    Thank you for the letter.  While I have deep admiration and love for Canadians our Canadian office isn't scheduled to open until 2036. I'm hoping you'll settle for a T-shirt and mug. 

    Thanks for going for a walk with me.  As a note of caution, I lead all turkeys to the barbecue.

    @MelissaBarrett - Your offer of dimples is in my sweet spot.  HubPages accepts all the great smiles we can get.

    @wavergirl - Looks like the Giants are down and out (cowboy fans smile).  Stay behind the jets and you have a slim shot of the wildcard, although I'll take the Tebows.  We really need a NYC office.  You should have free time this playoff season (couldn't resist) to start it up.  What do you say?

    @habee - We need a Southern presence.  Does it come with southern BBQ?  If dimples are my weak spot (just ask Robin - she has big ones), then food is my absolute weakness.  Put some tasty BBQ food in front of me and all I do is nod yes.

    Good fun.  -Paul
