I'd rather be burlesquing.

With a futuristic look and feel

I was recently sent on an IT-related course through my work, and the company that hosted the course keeps sending me spam.

Today's spam was bad enough to actually push me over the edge and remove myself from their mailing list, once and for all. Behold, the wonder of the pen...

"I invite you to ...

Get a Free Cross ion Pen
when you enrol on this valuable related course in London on the following date:

Microsoft Access: A Comprehensive Hands-On Introduction
Monday - Friday, 21 August - 25 August, 2006

That’s right. You and any colleagues you refer will receive a Free Cross ion Pen when you attend this valuable Hands-On IT course on the date specified above.

(This is where it really gets exciting)

The ion is the perfect pen to take anywhere. With a futuristic look and feel, the ion provides you with a soft ergonomic front section for writing comfort. It offers easy, one-hand open/close operation and a choice of six different colors in gel ink refills (black cartridge included with pen).

Plus for your convenience, it provides an easy-on, easy-off "quick clip" that can be attached to your keyring or a lanyard so you can always have a pen at hand when you need it.

Take advantage of this special opportunity to further increase your skills set and get your Free Cross ion Pen.

Now, I understand that there is some weird stigma attached to pens, and admittedly, my favorite pens are blue bics that leak - which hardly makes me an authority on pens, but is it just me or does this sound like EVERY PEN YOU'VE EVER OWNED?

Those crazy IT people. They make me laugh.
