act later!

okay, let's be brutally honest:
candid, frank --
hey, we could even shoot for truthful --
there are no "operators standing by",
and if you do not "act now"
it simply means that someone will
finish their crossword book
sooner than they otherwise
might have,
and pull out a new one,
or reach for the latest issue of
The Star;
so relax,
don't worry about the doubled offer:
someone will be "sitting by"
on their big fat ass
anytime tomorrow.
