Well, anyway the point is that even if our ruminations on the world extant are occasionally skewed because of Ernest Hemingway Mojito night, or Edgar Degas Absinthe afternoon, or Dylan Thomas Whiskey week, or some combination thereof, there are also those times, rare as they may be which, because of the bizarre and outlandish news we bring you may assume we've been participating in Humphrey Bogart Martini morning when in fact we have not.
This is one of those times. Whilst innocently perusing the overlord neighborhood of the inter toobz looking for a bit of wackiness to bring your way, we ran across an example so clueless, so lacking in even a scintilla of sense, so dumfoundedly disconnected from reality that for a moment we thought we had unknowingly wandered into another episode of the F. Scott Fitzgerald Gin Rickey revival.
It's pretty well established that, as a group, the overlords are not the brightest LED in the display, but this person sets a new standard in, well, see for yourself:
Greyhound racing is growing in popularity.Ah, that explains all the tracks closing.
And with this increase in popularity comes the wish to get more involved. No longer are people satisfied with having a punt, they want to get involved in the excitement of owning their own dog through greyhound syndication.Exactly. Why be satisfied with losing the social security money two bucks at a time when you can pour all of it directly into an overlord's trailer payment at once?
Imagine not only the excitement of a winning bet, but the jubilation of seeing your own greyhound win.Yeah, and it's just that easy too. Buy a greyhound, watch it win. Bridge in Brooklyn anyone?
If you are keen to take that next step and become more involved in the industry you have two options: outright ownership or greyhound syndication.Well, truth is if you're "keen to take that next step" you probably ran out of options long ago. If you had any to begin with.
Starting a syndicate with your friends is a great way for the beginner to get involved as the syndicate will usually have a manager who is an expert in the racing industry. This means you do not have to invest a lot of time and money educating yourself and making expensive mistakes.Right, because you already made the most expensive mistake you're going to make.
If you want to get involved through this syndication, you need to find yourself a greyhound pup or a ready to race dog.OK, when you have to tell people who want to get into greyhound racing that they have to start with a greyhound you know you're not dealing with the world's most sophisticated investors, right Bart?
Bart is a little shy and unsure of himself. He is sweet and loves attention. He is easygoing, quiet and mellow. He will approach and lean against you for attention. He follows his foster mom around the house like a shadow. He is a quick learner. Bart would do well in a working family home with well-mannered children, 8 and up. He is good with other dogs and would probably do best in a home with another dog to show him the ropes. He is a little nervous when walking, so he would do best in a home with a fenced yard.
