Blow off steam at Superferry's expense

by Larry Geller

David Shapiro has started a contest over on his Advertiser blog, Volcanic Ash.

Hawaii Superferry CEO John Garibaldi says his company has learned many lessons in the six years it has tried to get its interisland service going.

If that isn't a setup for another punchline-writing contest, I don't know what is. Let's do a list of the Top Ten lessons the Superferry has learned about doing business in Hawai'i.

The first submission is already very good: "You need to add the phrase 'world-class' to all descriptions of the boat." Yup, that would have convinced anyone in this state that it is a good thing and could have avoided lots of trouble.

Why didn't I think of something like this. Well, I didn't and he did. Sounds like a good way to blow off some steam on this otherwise sordid mess.

I enjoy Dave's flASHback each Friday. Check it out at the above link and maybe enter the contest to win a copy of his book (help him move them out of his basement).
