The B-S wars

A quick look at the stands at GITEX this year, one can never help but notice the amount of corporate testosterone thats pouring out of the halls -a parade of who_has_the_largest_enterprise 'Kohones' (look up Kohones in Mexican and u'll know what i mean) ...

Everyone is trying to get Thee customer to buy into something, anything!

The stand with the strongest sales FORCE, will win the battle. It felt something like a George Lucas picture!

Scene 1. Location: Gitex Hallways. Character "O-Buy One" trying to get through the isle wars as he encounters an unexpected adversary. The heavy breathing, "Dark Blazer"!

Dark Blazer: "We meet again O-buy One!"

O-Buy One: "DARK BLAZER! - The SALES FORCE ... it has taken over you!"

Lame Yogurt: "Ohh... longer, bigger, wider, taller, his 'stand' is this year young O-buy One. Resist it you can't, i am afraid!"

O-Buy One: "I will not give in to the SALES FORCE. I shall not give in!"

O-Buy One suddenly dodges 2 incoming promo females that came out of no where! He successfully evades flying, sharp_edge paper brochures thrown toward his direction.

Dark Blazer: "Your strength ... its growing... that can't be!"

O-Buy One pulls out his Budget-Saver (B_S) and it grows bigger and wider.

O-Buy One cries: "Feel the strength of my B-S"

Dark Blazer brings his own B_S: Bribe-Squad. Seem like a worthy equlizer... A major B-S conflict takes place throughout the GITEX 5_day dynasty -

It was a case of TOTAL B-S.

To be continued!

  • Fantastic! The promo girls literally are dressed as galatic space cadets on many stands this year.

  • Professore.Must tell you after Nostradamus there is You.Its a brilliant piece however the fear of being abducted and probably probed keeps me away from GITS EX(intentional typo).
    May the FORCE be with you Kind Sir.
