King Abdullah Of Jordan Wants To Sell Me A Horse

| | Comments (8) | TrackBacks (0)
king_abdullah_of_jordan.jpgGood morning.  I received a very nice Christmas card from King Abdullah of Jordan yesterday (I am Jewish.  He is Muslim - but no matter) in which he is seated on a magnificent horse in a red suit bringing presents to all the children of the world. 

king_abdullah_racehorse.jpgIn his note, he asked if I would like to buy one of his prize racehorses as he would like to get out of that business so he can concentrate more on philanthropic activities with Angelina Jolie.

In these very difficult economic times in which I am sitting on a large amount of cash that I don't know what to do with (there is no way in Hell I am dumping more money into the pitiful Manka Bros. stock! - NYSE: MBX), I'm seriously thinking about King Abdullah's proposal.  Maybe my racehorse would be like Seabiscuit and, by winning, help bring the country out of a Depression.

So... I would like to get the opinions of the Manka Bros. employees (especially you financial eggheads).  Should I buy a racehorse and bring it to Burbank to train and, hopefully, win the Triple Crown?   What other suggestions would you have for my cash?  I need to do something with it by the end of the year.

King Abdullah said I can name the horse whatever I would like.  I'm thinking of calling it - "Jay McBee Is The Worst Television Executive Ever".  This way, when the horse is racing, the track announcer would say "Coming up around the front... Jay McBee Is The Worst Television Executive Ever!"  Just hearing that over and over again would be worth the price of the horse right there.

Give me your thoughts.

P.S. - If I get the horse, I think I want to convert one of the Writer's Bungalows on the studio lot into a stable so that I can see the horse at lunchtime.

I think buying a racehorse or even gambling in a casino is a better investment these days.

I like the name, sir.

Yeah, sure, get the horse. It doesn't really matter at this point. Which writer's bungalow do you want to convert? I know several writers that don't deserve a bungalow or a deal for that matter.

You're insane, Khan. Horse racing is a sucker bet. Just ask Hammer.

Jay McBee said:

I think a better name would be "Jay McBee Is Not The Problem"

Hollywood Producer said:

Look at Jay McBee! He's growing some balls!

You made some good points there. I did a search on the topic and found most people will agree with your blog.
