Baked Beans Marketing

So, then I says to Earl, “Earl, how do you think we can sell all these damned baked beans?”

He pondered it for a second. Then, we both looked at each other with the same knowing expression.

After one trip out-back and 30 minutes of stacking, we were done.

What is the moral of this story? Some of you lawyers display the same level of care and intellect in your office marketing schemes. Humorous? Yeah, maybe. Disturbing? You bet.

UPDATE: Just so you know. This groceryiffic display has three key elements:

  1. Baked Beans
  2. An Outhouse
  3. A banner encouraging you to “Celebrate.”

    • Impressive. The builders are, truly, great Americans.

      However, I think Earl and I get extra points for A. a mere 30 minutes vs. 8 hours and B. our subtle reference to the human “food to crap cycle.”
