Truth In Advertising


(from the BC thread "The man who broke the bank")

Engineer,
Whaddya mean, pro wrestling ain't real? Can't a man believe in anything? Next someone will tell me you can't trust women!

Roderick Reilly,
My take was that the name Greenland was cooked up as a cutting edge real estate swindle. Erik the Red saw that trying to sell the pointy helmet crowd in Danemark acreage in Iceland was hard work so he came up with something more inviting. When you see an advertisement for a place called "Verdant Shores" expect it to be either a desert or a swamp.
