Called on to Sacrifice ... For Clowns Like These

Feb 2, 2004

One CEO (whose name was withheld for obvious reasons) reportedly spent $350,000 hiring a theatrical agency to provide for him a week’s life as James Bond. Twenty-two actors were hired as supporting cast to play everything from bartenders to casino dealers to famous James Bond opponents. A pretend kidnapping and escape was thrown in.

Workers are supposed to cut back on basic necessities, and even give up their jobs, so that executives and other rich people can live a fantasy life!

Not forever!
