(Ron Davison muses aloud)
Don't chew gum so the news on the Wrigley sell doesn't do much for me BUT, your blog being active again sure was the change I'd been hoping for. Nice to have you back.
So maybe he didn't say it, but I hear China says that about American consumers.
Milena,thanks for the welcome.jennifer h,funny. I'm sure they do.
hi ron,i heard this joke from a friend--A Filipino is having breakfast in a hotel in France one morning. He was eating bread and jam when an American while chewing his gum, sits down next to him. The Pinoy ignores the Kano who,nevertheless, starts a conversation:American: "You Filipinos eat the whole bread??"Filipino: (Little irritated): "Of course."American: (after blowing a huge bubble): "We don't. In America, we only eatwhat's inside. The crusts we collect in a container, recycle it, transformthem in to croissants and sell them to the Philippines." The American has a smirk on his face. The Pinoy listens in silence. Still the American persists.American: "Do you eat jelly with the bread??"Filipino: "Of course."American: (cracking his gum between his teeth and chuckling). "We don't. In America, we eat fresh fruits for breakfast, then we put all the peels, seeds, and leftovers in containers, recycle them, transform them into jamand sell the jam to the Philippines."The Filipino (irritated) asks: "Do you have sex in America?"American: "Why of course we do!".Filipino (now smirking): "And what do you do with the condoms once you've used them?"American: (a bit puzzled): "We throw them away, of course."Filipino: "We don't. In my beloved Philippines, we put them in a container,recycle them, melt them into chewing gum and sell them to America...
Chesca,Very funny. So, the Philippines are behind Wrigley's success. I can hardly wait to share this in business school. I'll quote you.
