Other People’s Genius Money-Making Ideas

Oh dear:

So I threw open the hotel room curtain this morning and turned on my laptop, only to discover about 50 tiny bugs crawling like crazy out of my keyboard and making a dash for darker quarters.

Most people would be grossed out by this, but I immediately saw the commercial possibilities in this invasion. Many of these little crawling thingies were actually carrying out food crumbs that had fallen into my keyboard over the past couple of years. One of them was toting a little popcorn kernel that probably came from the press tent at the Super Bowl.

I figure if they can sell live bait in vending machines here, I can set up a lucrative business with these cleaning bugs. They’re like tiny elves who work for you overnight, and they don’t even demand your first born child (that’s a fairy-tale reference – first one to identify it wins a bug). I just need the right ad slogan, something like: “Stop de-bugging your computer and start bugging it!”

I, uh, think I’ll just use one of those little mini-vacuum thingies.  I wonder if Dyson makes any.  Or the Roomba people.
