OJ's back and he's gonna be in trouble, Hey Now, Hey Now, OJ's back.
(Sung to the tune, My Boyfriends Back)

If you haven't heard, one Mr. OJ Simpson is back in the headlines. While most people shake their heads, I am overjoyed. The reason I'm excited is because this gives me a chance to advertise my new advertising technique. My technique will revolutionize advertising in this new age.

Let's go back to the infamous OJ Trial. Back during that trial I was working from home in the afternoons. I have always had an interest in law and I was drawn to watch that whole process. I was fascinated how both the defense and the prosecution danced in the courtroom. At times, everyone seemed liked friends. Then at other times, it seemed like a Jerry Springer Show.

I remember thinking these are the most serious people doing the most serious job. Deciding whether a man should remain free or be sent to jail or possible death. In my job the most serious thing I do is configure a computer or two. If I make a mistake, oh well, I'll fix it tomorrow.

Yet, in the middle of all the serious legal mumbo jumbo these very serious people wouldn't say a certain word in court. THE "N" WORD. Don't get me wrong, I understood why they wouldn't say THE "N" WORD. It's a very ugly word and millions of TV sets were watching. This is where my idea comes in. Each day THE "N" WORD could have been sponsored. Imagine if you will.

Today the THE "N" WORD is sponsored by, Nextel. When you're calling someone call using Nextel.

Then when the the serious people are talking in court instead of saying,
"The officer called you a 'N' WORD", they could say,
"The officer called you a Nextel Smartphone E77."

The possibilities are great because we have a lot of taboo words.
THE "F" WORD (there are actually two here, THE "Fu" WORD and the THE "Fa" WORD.
THE "Z" WORD, just kidding.

I'm just an idea guy. But, the revenue generated by selling these potential ad spots could help defray court costs. Heck, some cases could help bring down the national.
