and then Peter said 'What, fifty thousand a day?'
Anyway - this page is on the theme of fifty thousand and I love it!
First, a helpful statement from Wikipedia:
50,000 (fifty thousand) is the natural number that comes after 49,999 and before 50,001.
Now we've established that - I discovered THIS which made me laugh A LOT.
There is a book called Fifty-Thousand Shades Of Grey by someone called S.C Ashen.
It costs £6.97 on Amazon and people are buying it...
Here is the description:
"Romance. Intrigue. Domination. Control. Subservience. Clarity. Epiphany. Release. EUPHORIA. This book contains absolutely none of those things - it is literally the words "Shades of grey" repeated 50,000 times, and is a practical joke."
If you don't believe me - here is a page:
All hail to S.C. Ashen and his sheer quirky, irreverent BRILLIANCE!
Oh - here is a tweet from him, dated September 24th.
"Holy shit- Fifty-Thousand Shades Of Grey is actually available from Amazon. If you want a copy, buy now before I figure out how to remove it."
Brilliant marketing? Who cares! It made my day.
