Is it just me or is irony almost always synonymous with humor?
Below is a post by the TOBB "Editor' inviting all to an intimate lil get together with Chris and crew. Is it not surprising that the link does not work?

I also find it humorous that it is scheduled for April first...chance? I think not... :lol: The "ship of fools" :? sets sail yet again...

I posted a working link so all can see what is happening.

So I called the 800 # for some information about the dinner. The reception is a cash bar. They do not have the menu planned. The lady on the phone thinks it will be soup, salad, entree and dessert. This does include wine.

You do realize this is a quid pro quo event -- the crew goes out to Kohler once a year, and Kohler keeps sponsoring ATK.

You would know better than the rest of us, but I've always believed pretty much everything BCP does is quid pro quo. CK doesn't miss a beat when it comes to marketing...much of it bad. Sorry, but as a former advertising executive, I smell marketing decisions a mile away.

Talk about peas in a pod...

Growing up in Wisconsin, I got to know some of the Kohler plumbing family. I recent years I have heard incredible stories about the Corporate culture in Kohler WI. They deserve each others company!
