A few weeks ago, LoadingReadyRun posted a serious commentary on the state of the global economy, titled “Economic Stimulus.” It was a mockumentary of sorts, a treatise on the nouveau pauvre, a post-modern…
Ok, really, it was just a silly sketch. But it was funny. If you don’t believe me, watch it:
After seeing the video, we decided it would be a really good idea to take the core concept of the video–the International Brotherhood of Lemonadespeople–and make it a reality. That’s right, we are going to shock and awe (and possibly ground and pound) the world with a global network of union-supported, orphan-fueled lemonade stands!*
There’s only one thing holding us back: we need a logo. The problem is that Graham and Kathleen are in Japan establishing inroads for our franchise, Paul is in the middle of a balacing-things-on-his-head marathon, Jer is away at a Ducks Unlimited rally, Matt is playing Final Fantasy 7 on his PS3, James is editing a new Iron Stomach Challenge, Morgan is off seeking spiritual enlightenment, Bill’s asleep, and Tim has no graphic-generating abilities whatsoever.
So we need you to help us out. Make a crest, logo, badge, union sticker, insignia, coat of arms, or emblem that will aid us in establishing a corporate identity for the International Brotherhood of Lemonadespeople.
Send in your graphics by Sunday, July 12, 2009. The best crest, as judged by the Bosses, will win a medal.
We’re counting on you, Runners. Help us become TOO BIG TO FAIL!!
