PITCH ON BIBLE
You have all heard about
Robert Ripley...as you know, he was an expert on Freaks and spent his
lifetime gathering together the most outstanding human curiosities
from all over the world.
For many years this young
man was the feature attraction with Robert Ripley. And during
the years....Ripley and X became the closet of friends.
Ripley became so attached
to X that he made provisions in his will to card for him the balance
of his lifetime. He did this in the form or printing
plates...No...Not for a famous book about Robert Ripley.... during the
lifetime of Ripley he became famous for his endeavors to find the most
unusual....not only people, but things as well. One of
Ripley's most prized possessions was the plates for the printing of
the smallest bible in the world.
In his will, Ripley left X
these plates....because Ripley knew that as long as X had these
plates, he would never go hungry as long as he lived.
I'm certain that it goes
without saying that you all understand that X could never serve you
food in a restaurant, he could never fill your gas tank at the service
station, and you would never buy insurance from him....the only type
of work he can obtain is by exhibiting himself a freak show.
X receives no salary for
being in this show. Instead, the manager of the show....allows X
the privilege of offering to the audience, for a few minutes, once
during each and every performance, the privilege of offering for sale,
a copy of the world's smallest bible, made from the original plates
Robert L. Ripley left X in his will.
The cost of printing these
little bibles is about 21....binding, postage, complete... offers them
to you for sale for 25c....the four pennies is change over and shows
the cost is his profit...the money he lives on all year
around....without others having purchased these
