    With the Christmas buying season just three months away for major retail, I would like to obtain a license to market the Don King Chia Pet. I think it would be a riot! What do you think?

    I love it, but put it this way: if that man wasn't afraid of ripping off Mike Tyson, things don't really bode well for your chances of ever seeing dollar one.

    I wouldn't have a Chia Pet stuck in my ass! Nor Don King.

    OK..I sent the following email to Don King:

    Dear Mr. King;

    I would like to market your image via a Chia Pet. I come to you seeking your firms permission to do so. The current global Chia Pet market has sales of over 21 Million units per year. With great respect to your hair style, I feel there is great synergy between that and the prospective 'Don King Chia Pet'. With a royalty agreement in place, I will work with the Chia Pet corporation to produce this product.

    Please have your marketing staff contact me via this email as soon as possible to discuss this opportunity in more detail.

    Sincerely,
    PeterS
    Sonora,CA.

    Peter,

    Don't you remember when the Yankees were selling Don King cotton candy at the ballpark? It was a flop because the fans were complaining that it stuck to them, they hated it and they could never get rid of it.
