Dumb Things To Do To Get Rich At Your Zoo!

I guess it shows something about human minds, meaning it takes all kinds, when such things make one a millionaire. Almost enough to make the cat swear.

The best of all,
See it winter through fall.
But sell it and win.
Pet Rocks brought at least 15 million in.

Dumb smiley faces,
Were off to the races.
Times the above my ten,
And you still are only 33% there at your den.

The slinky was grand,
Fall down the land.
250 million made at hand,
For something that can't even stand.

A blanket won't do,
Get a Snuggie at your zoo.
Didn't create it? Damn!
Missed out on 200 million, Mam.

Beanie babies were all the rage.
They were on every page
Only made the creator a bit,
Like 5 billion for such a hit.

That get you in a bad mood?
No need to give attitude.
For it may sting,
But get the rich richer, buy a mood ring.

Don't bother with a cool pet.
That is not a safe bet.
Get a Chia pet at your sea.
They've already made millions and look like a tree.

The clapper sounds like an std.
But one that will cause glee.
As it made the creator rich.
Clapping makes me twitch.

Santa mail is so grand.
Santa gets letters from all over the land.
But at 10 bucks a pop,
He writes back and the cash flows non stop.

And then comes antenna balls.
They may get you cat calls.
A happy face ball on your car.
Yep, millions made by far.

See how easy it is at your sea? Now go make something dumb and go on a millionaire spree. Maybe my kitty litter pringle can scoop will fit into this loop? Easier than a bag at my sea. Now I will leave thee. Depressed at such a pass? Bah, just gives me gas that comes out my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  1. Dumb inventions can bring back millions
    Refusal to be a dumb make the difference
    Give it a try
    Let things fly
    None the wiser and leave others the crumbs

  7. I think a lot of people spend a small fortune on patenting and never get anything but 'out of money.' ;)

    That being said, I wish I'd have invented the paperclip. :)

  10. Cat's pringle scoop could make a mint

    Take the loot, dress up and spend in town

  11. Ha ha - it is interesting what things become commercial successes, isn't it? I must admit to being fascinated with the slinky but thought the stupidest things of all are the chia pet and the slinky...things people are only willing to spend money on at Christmas & which go into hibernation the rest of the year.

    2. I'm dumb enough to buy rocks. I bought little rocks for all the gardens and now I'm picking them out by hand. I'm dumb enough to beat the band. But I love rocks and I bought some big ones too.....they will outlive anything I can do. LOL

      Delete
    3. lol well a purpose you have for the rocks
      Not pets like some old puppet socks

  18. Making money?
    Reminds me of a funny...
    A woman, in an effort to helped support her family, decided to become a hooker. After her first day, she brought home a bag of money with $69.10 in it. Her husband said, "Not bad, not bad. But, who gave you the ten cents?"
    She replied, "Everybody."

  22. I remember those mood rings. They've made a come back with the young set. When The Spawn bought one, I was surprised to see they're still around. The slinky still sells as does the chia pet in all it's forms. But I think the pet rock has had it's run.

  36. Cats can definitely bring in the dough,
