BOOB JOB

Did you see it?
Madonna’s boob?
A few weeks ago in all the press?
I passed.
Actually, I looked but the photo was fuzzy.
But is that what her talent has boiled down to?
Is that all people care to see of her…
Is her boob?
And besides…
It’s soooooooooo Janet Jackson.
But who am I to judge?
Maybe showing boobies…
Is the next phase of marketing.
Imagine a time…
When a well-known author…
Or even YOU…
Has a bit of a slump in sales…
And to increase sales…
The publicist wants her/you to show a boob...
Either a photo...
Included on the inside a sealed jacket cover…
Or, during at a book signing.
Just think of the publicity!
HOO YEAH!
Thankfully, that day isn’t here yet.
But tell me…
Have you…
Or would you…
Do something outrageous to increase sales?
What would it be?
And guys…
You can comment too, but sorry…
Doubt anyone cares about seeing your boobies.

Always, Em-Musing

Sorry, nothing outrageous I'd do to increase sales. And no man-boobs here, so I'm safe.

Ha, funny. I've seen a few crazies on Twitter, but no boobs. I think the most I'd do is stand on my head and eat an ice cream cone. I'm messy, not flashy.

Funny, outrageous and a little sad. Seriously, if I have to show a breast to sell a book, I must not be a very good writer.

I'm not ashamed. I wish I had boobs worth sharing. Mostly though, because I really prefer being naked.

I DON'T however want them bad enough to BUY them.

Heck...I'd show you both of them if they'd boost sales! But I first I need some sales to boost!! :)

Funny post and since I've been in advertising and marketing most of my life--I've seen some desperate stuff. In fact I remember a Nissan ad I designed with bathing suit tops and bottoms floating around on top near the headline. Whoops. I'm guilty of this too. :)
