What kind of Muppet are You?
I send these posts out as regular e-mails and I got a lot of great feedback to yesterday’s mail but this one was probably the most remarkable:
“Excellent email, fab tie in, great topic…
SO WHERE IS THE CALL TO ACTION, you Muppet?”
Two things are striking about this message:
1. This is a friendly mail; yea this guy’s a friend of mine. With friends like these… I know! But he’s a marketing guy and he just can’t abide it when I don’t sell.
2. But more importantly, when exactly did Muppet become a term of abuse? I grew up on the Muppets and Sesame Street and I love those guys.
Because in a way we are all Muppets; it’s merely a question of which kind. Are you a chaos Muppet or an order Muppet? Have a read of this and see for yourself: http://slate.me/Mzmq0I
My man the marketing guy, he’s definitely a chaos Muppet (think Animal but bald as a coot!) Whereas in a solicitor I think you probably need an order Muppet. Don’t get me wrong there are times when you’ll need a street fighting chaos Muppet; but if you need em we’ve got those too: they’re called barristers….
So, that’s the deal, e-mails baked fresh and delivered hot to your inbox most days. What’s not to like?
