Who’s Who? I am, of course.

Before I jettison this little nugget into the cold, dark vacuum of Outlook’s Deleted Items folder I wanted to preserve it for posterity:

You were recently appointed as a biographical candidate to represent your industry in the Who’s Who Among Executives and Professionals, and for inclusion into the upcoming 2007-2008 Edition of the registry.

We are pleased to inform you that on November 15th, your candidacy was approved. Your confirmation for inclusion will be effective within five business days, pending our receipt of the enclosed application.

The Office of the Managing Director appoints individuals based on a candidate’s current position, and usually with information obtained from researched executive and professional listings. The director thinks you may make an interesting biographical subject, as individual achievement is what Who’s Who is all about. Upon final confirmation you will be listed among thousands of accomplished individuals in the Madison Who’s Who Registry. There is no cost to be included.

We do require additional information to complete the selection process and kindly ask that you access this form on our website:

To ensure your biographical data is received in time, please complete the online form above as soon as possible. Our editorial deadline is quickly approaching.

Well I have to say, I’m honored. And by honored I mean confused and slightly annoyed. After poking around the inter-nets to research Madison Who’s Who it seems they are offering me the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pay to get my name put on a list made up of other people who paid for the same thing. Now that’s networking!

I actually considered for a minute responding just as a goof, but my Spidey Sense tells me it’d be more hassle than it’s worth. I think I’ll just stick to having my cat talk to telemarketers.
