Clarification Regarding "Bribes"

I would like to be perfectly clear following comments on the post below, that the word "bribe" is used therein purely as a rhetorical flourish in the vein of satire, and is not intended to insinuate any criminal or immoral activity on the part of any person.  Commercial advertising is a normal, natural, legal and in many ways admirable business practice.

Readers will note that after intense bidding, an advertisement is now to be found on this page, for the almost famous Gebhards and their much-envied wet fish empire.  Nobody gives you cod like the Gebhards. Take it from me.  

However, in the spirit of fair play, I would like to make clear that despite my close personal connection to the Gebhard brothers and their late father, advertising opportunities on this page are available on a purely commercial basis.  The highest bidder (really, really high) will be able to displace the Gebhards at but a day's notice.  Bids would be particularly welcome from manufacturers of carbonated soft drinks and/or major international producers or dealers of controlled substances or anti-personnel mines.

Thank you very much.

They have the budget, and would fill the gap left by Enron. I was wondering about that new mercenary company in Abu Dhabi that the Blackwater guy set up too. They really need a guy like me.
