Whither Pancake Contest?


I have another moral quandry for you.

I could win a $25,000 kitchen makeover from Hungry Jack (any relation?)
by
writing a fawning essay about why the Ubers are "A Hungry Jack Family."

Now, at times we've purchased Hungry Jack pancake mix if it was on
sale. I
don't think this makes us a "Hungry Jack Family," but I can embellish
it,
given the fact I used to write ad copy and press releases and such for
a
living.

My question is, would it be unethical to exaggerate the extent of our
"Hungry Jackness" in order to win a kitchen makeover, or, since they
would
be using my essay as an advertising ploy anyway, would it simply be
compensation for writing ad copy as I have received in the past?

I know you're busy but the contest deadline is December 1, 2005, so a
reply
before that date would be appreciated.

Goddamm right you should!

Nobody in advertising actually believes in the mindless crap they produce anyway, especially those evil pancake magnates in their fortesses built of maple-glazed stone, surrounded with moats filled with cinnamon-scented alligators. Stick it to them good!

So write, write like the wind, my child! Write as if that 25 grand is inches from your fingertips.

btw, my family is related to the 'Slightly Peckish' side of the 'Jack' Family.

If I win, you will be the first to enjoy the fruits of my new kitchen.

I can hardly wait, I love fruits.

Shouldn't you be serving pancakes, though?
