The Idiot Club


Here’s an ad for a new club that offers as a signing bonus “the thinnest smartphone in 16 GB.”  Even better, “colors can be chosen by choice,” because how else would you choose?   “Renew membership can enjoy the same benefit.”  What benefit is that?  The ad never says.  “Free bottles will remain the same as membership is applied.”  Does anyone have any idea what that means?  And why is the price listed as $13,800 + $2,880?  Why can’t they just say $16,680?

Groucho Marx famously said that he wouldn’t belong to any club that would have him as a member.  I wouldn’t want to belong to any club that has members who were enticed to join by idiot ads like this one.

    On the website – it seems to be a club for platinum class nobbers and wannabe nobbers, it reads as though you pay the membership fee of 18800 & then an additional 3200 to get the phone.

    I don’t think the people that go are too much into fine print, nor any print for that matter.
