My Latest Money Making Ideas

Every so often I come up with new ideas about how to make money. Some past ideas included the sand registry and personalized number combinations. You can't keep a good mind down and mine has been running full speed churning out the following ideas.

The other day while listening to the radio, the song Renegade by Styx came on. I remembered how I was going to do a remake of the song a couple years ago but instead of saying Oh Mama..., I'd change the words to "Obama" and make a clever political song out of it. I'm sure it would go viral so I pretty much have that in the hopper to fall back on if I ever get around to it.

I've also considered solving mysteries or being a bounty hunter. I've seen many shows like CSI and X files where they regularly solve cases in less than an hour. I don't get what the big deal is and why real life investigators take so long. I think I may give this a shot because there is some serious reward money out there. Consider this your warning Bin Laden!

My crown jewel idea is the hot chocolate suit. I've been working on this idea for over 20 years. It's kind of like a camelbak, but an entire jump suit would be lined with a bladder that you could fill with hot chocolate or other warm beverage. You would just pop a straw out of the shoulder area during a game or camp out and enjoy your drink, while the liquid keeps your body warm. The deluxe version would have a catheter feature and an additional lining reservoir so you'd stay warm even longer and wouldn't have to miss any of the game.

With all these great ideas I just can't figure out why I'm not rich yet. I'm actually more of a thinker and less of a doer, so if you end up stealing these ideas and running with them, please be kind enough to include me on some of the residuals.

Usher had ripped The Simpsons, so you're too late. Your chocolate suit, I may buy it if it enhances my body figure and not make me look like the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

You sir, are a genius. Why did no one else think of that Renegade a couple years back? I think it would have really caught on.

"Obama, I'm in fear for my life from the long arm of the law..."

Why not just recycle your urine and have it pass through a replaceable chocolate pouch to make your drink. It would be like a stillsuit from DUNE.

I too am an investigative genius. Some of my best memories were from sitting around with my Dad solving the crimes before the hour was up. We were the Sherlock Holmes/Watson or Batman/Robin of the Tundra.

I was with you till the recycled urine thing--then I threw up a little in my mouth......boys are weird...

Money making ideas that involve photocopiers are almost never good ones. Could have used the suit at the big game.

I am desperate for amusement - PLEASE do the Renegade remake. You can never ruin a Styx song, they stand the test of time and mockery.

The suit? Although the warmth appeals to me, I'm not a hot chocolate fan and have body issues already. I fear it would make me look fat.

Anything involving chocolate sounds like a winner to me.

I came up with the idea years ago of a store that sells nothing but party supplies, and I was pooh-poohed on that; same thing happened with my idea of a long pole that would hook onto the end of a paint roller and hold the paint. DUH!

I guess, like you, I'm more of a thinker than a doer.

I just stopped by after I read your hilarious comment over at The Fifty Factor - the Old Spice guy. You are definitely one funny man!

These are brilliant. You need to hook up with someone who can execute on them.

Although, as I think of the urine thing, maybe not.

In response to your comment- I NEVER thought I would delete anything!! EVER. But when the principal called me and said "we want to talk about your blog" I knew I had to do it.


It killed me.
