Here's a new one

I am always amazed at the ideas people come up with and with the people who tell them they can't be done. Today's Forbes online is running an article about a Marine in North Carolina who wanted to auction his name to the highest bidder.

Yep, whoever paid the most money would be able to tell him what he would be called for the rest of his days.

Sounds crazy to me, but hey, to each his own.

Then the Marines told him he can't do that. I guess auctioning the rights to your name off is against Marine regulations of some sort. The reason? It would be a commercial advertising slogan on his Marine uniform. Who would have thought?

I can only what tomorrow will bring!
