So yesterday I was out in the tractor, lots of time to let my mind drift somewhat aimlessly between listening to podcasts, and I was thinking about ring tones and how stupid they are.
(** disclaimer ** this is only my opinion, ring tones are not actually "stupid") But anyhow I got the idea that Paul Wheaton could make up a few cell phone ring tones and sell them as one of those residual income things he's so fond of. They could just be something funny or outrageous enough to grab an innocent bystanders attention to make them ask "what the hell was THAT?!" I think Paul has a great sense of humor and could come up with something that would work perfectly for this and maybe even slip in something that's a bit permaculture related. At the very least if anyone asks about the ring tone the user of it can say "that's Paul Wheaton and he has a really cool permaculture website" Could this idea work? If the a ring tone was great enough I might even buy it and put it on my phone, but probably not.

Success has a Thousand Fathers , Failure is an Orphan
Nice variation Allen! That could work too. I'm familiar with the NPR show it's like they tell you all week what they think is important in the world and then give you a quiz on it. Beats commercials though. It'd be great if the part about the pigs was in german too!
