      and cause I have a sense of humor, lately I've been using the Riker version. As in that dude from Star Trek. It reads like this:

      Earl Grey tea, watercress sandwiches... and Bularian canapés? Are you up for promotion? You enjoyed that. Now, how the hell do we defeat an enemy that knows us better than we know ourselves? Sure. You'd be surprised how far a hug goes with Geordi, or Worf. Wait a minute - you've been declared dead. You can't give orders around here. Computer, belay that order. Fear is the true enemy, the only enemy. Worf, It's better than music. It's jazz. For an android with no feelings, he sure managed to evoke them in others. You're going to be an interesting companion, Mr. Data. About four years. I got tired of hearing how young I looked. Ensign Babyface! The game's not big enough unless it scares you a little. Some days you get the bear, and some days the bear gets you. Maybe if we felt any human loss as keenly as we feel one of those close to us, human history would be far less bloody. This should be interesting. Commander William Riker of the Starship Enterprise. Some days you get the bear, and some days the bear gets you.

      I kid you not, I've had clients tell me we need to replace this copy with their own copy, what I have won't work. They say this with a serious tone. I literally have to tell them it is just placeholder text :).

        And ya know what?

        A. I'm glad the apt. under me is unoccupied b/c they'd think I went nuts; and

        B. That is so totally realistic it's creepy. Hysterically funny...but creepy.

        How stupid ARE your clients? /rhetorical

          I don't write copy for my clients. The main reason being my grammer is terrible and second, well I don't really know their business. Before I started doing web sites I worked at high-end ad agencies. I had copywriters that charged like $200/hour. I like to joke I know good copy when I see it, that doesn't mean I can write it.

          until I asked about his business. He does health benefit consulting. Using the Affordable Care Act as a hook to scare people for their business. He showed the work I did for him to others and the impression was it was a "pretty" site, well done (pat me on the back), but the copy was terrible.

          I said I might be able to help a little, which I never offer, cause well I know a little about Obamacare. I found out he makes the tea party folks look liberal.

          I told him, straight up, I am a liberal. I don't agree with him. But I don't let my political views get in the way of business. But I can't see how I can help cause I see his selling prop in a different way.

          He laughed at me ....

        even if it is intended to be meaningless:
