“I was practically tripping over the darned things!” chuckled Dob at a recent IAS event wherein he was awarded yet another IAS trophy. “That’s when I told my IAS reg Charmaine that I needed a solution — and Charmaine and the IAS came through for me!”
The new Multipurpose IAS Status Trophy is a handsome two meter tall (six feet) trophy that features a programmable digital display which allows IAS Patrons to program the trophy to be any type of trophy they want and need.
And so it is that Dob Ruggin was recently meeting with a potential new investor who was a Championship Rescue Swimmer in college. Before their meeting, Dob Ruggin, who cannot swim, programmed his new Multipurpose IAS Status Trophy to read:
“DOB RUGGIN – CHAMPIONSHIP COLLEGE RESCUE SWIMMER”
“Why Dob,” exclaimed the potential new investor, “I had no idea you were a championship rescue swimmer in college! So was I! Let me shake your hand my fellow college championship rescue swimmer!”
Dob Ruggin smiled and beamed from ear to ear.
“Dob, where did you do your championship rescue swimming in college?” asked the potential new investor.
“I did my championship rescue swimming at Wellesley College,” replied Dob.
“But Wellesley College is a women’s college Dob!”
“Well, actually back then Wellesley College allowed me to do championship rescue swimming on its campus as my college did not have a rescue swimming program.”
“Dob, what town was Wellesley College’s championship rescue swimming program located?
“But swimming pools are outlawed in West Brighton.”
“I know. The program offices were located in West Brighton while the actual championship rescue swimming practice pool was located in Brighton.”
“Fascinating. Now, Dob, about the millions of dollars I want to invest with your company, will it be safe?
“Of course it will. I give you my word as a fellow college championship rescue swimmer!” And with that Dob Ruggin was “off to the races” on his next IAS status level!
