A Classic Rant, Apropos of Nothing

Adam Mathes, Fecalmarketing, Trenchant.org (Sept, 29, 2003):

My views on this theoretical job loss among telemarketers is this: if companies employed “fecalmarketers” to throw feces at people’s homes in order to get their attention to then sell them aluminum siding, see if they might be interested in finding out more about financial services, or if they wanted to change their long distance service provider, and then the government stepped in and said, hey, wait, you know throwing feces at somebody’s home is really not cool and you’re not allowed to do it to people who have signed up for this “do not throw shit at my house list,” would anybody really argue about putting people who hurl feces for a living out of a job?
