I'd put this firmly in the sleeze category but still, it's interesting. Who, after all, doesn't love flashcards?

Wow, almost as valuable as that mail order 'press photographer' credentials that you used to be able to buy!

'WAS $2595.00.......NOW A SERIOUS BARGAIN AT $19.95 !'

What's wrong with that picture.

I think I'd rather be ordained at the Church of the Latter-Day Dude! http://dudeism.com/ord​ination-form/ (external link)

You can still buy "free lance" press credentials. I got it decades ago when I was an ambitious neophyte. But I didn't pay $2,595 for it. I never used it. I often wondered what the reaction would be if I showed it to a security guard or police officer. I still get e-mails from them time-to-time.

I read the ad. There may be some value to the instructional material. But you can most likely get a good education for free on the internet.

Why? I can get 2 pizzas at Little Caesars and still have change. Then she can't get her cooties all over my slices.

Good point.

Do you happen to have any pix of those girl cooties? It's been so long since 9 years of age I've forgotten what those little buggers look like.

Hey, I can become a certified Minister for free!

"Get ordained immediately at the Church of the Latter-Day Dude! Become an official "Dudeist Priest" right away. It's totally free and there are no obligations. Entries marked with a red asterisk (* ) are required."

Or if I want a certificate with real gold seal, $20...
"Ordination Package includes:

1 - Letter of Good Standing with Ministry Seal
1 - Ordination Credential with Ministry Seal
1 - Certificate Folder
1 - Minister Handout & Sample Ceremony"


...the seal is 'real', the gold is not
