A Little Insurance

by | Jun 10, 2008 | News | 0 comments

Meeting with insurance people. I apparently need business insurance. Why, I’m not clear: Maybe if some kid chokes on one of the 3-inch god pawns (I can see the headlines: “3-inch Moses chokes Gentile boy”). But—but that’s why I have a very clear warning label on the bottom of the box: “Small Parts Hazard: Contains small parts; keep away from children.” It’s right there next to the “Satire Hazard: Keep away from easily-offended fundamentalists.” The insurance agent and I had a laugh when I asked if the policy covered Acts of God. She then stopped laughing, said yes, and showed me the bill: $1,600! Well, there goes the first two months of profit. (Profit? What profit? This game is going to hemorrhage money for at least the next six months, if not longer. I’ll be lucky to break even in 2009.)
