One of my favorite TV shows is Shark Tank, where budding entrepreneurs try to entice multimillionaires to invest in their big idea/product. This one would make a killing, I think…
“Hello sharks. I’m here today to ask for $100,000 in return for 25% equity in my product… I don’t know about you, but I always found chemistry in high school to be anything but enjoyable. The accidental explosions. Mysterious odors. Element charts I could never remember. Well, that’s ancient history, which I also found anything but enjoyable.
From now on, chemistry can be fun at the drop of a… drop. Meet… Bottled Chemistry! Just dab a drop of my exclusive formula on your earlobe and the earlobe of the person you want to engage with, and presto – instant chemistry!
Shark: “I don’t believe a word you’re saying. What are your sales?”
Nothing yet, but…
Shark: “The only zeroes I like are the kind that follow a bunch of non-zeros. You and your product are a big, fat zero, my friend. I’m out.”
Wait! Allow me to dab a little on my earlobe… and your earlobe.
Shark: “… I’m back in. You have lovely eyes.”
