So much for brevity....

Contributed by softerware on Friday, 22nd March 2019 @ 06:16:32 AM in AEST
Topic: Nostalgic

The next time you’re gone, take a few facts along;
You can casually bandy about;
Should you win a bet; kindly send me a check;
(Be prepared if you lose to duck out).

David and Ezra started their business in 1892.
In 1977 it was modernized for you!
It was bound to succeed, and it did indeed, with a newer upscale niche;
And that is why, we still can buy from ABERCROMBIE AND FITCH

Insta-Burger fast food was almost the last food it sold.
In /'/53 they sold their store to conglomerate, Pillsbury.
It was bought by Brazil; who owns it all still; but its still in the USA.
And here is the thing; its called BURGER KING; and Brazil says you’ll have it their way!

Three guys who worked for Paypal way back in 2005;
Started a business in a garage that quickly began to thrive!
They sold it to Google, kit and kaboodle;
For 300 million a piece!
And 2 million shows a day we all know;
Makes YOUTUBE the business to beat!

That wonderful HAPPY BIRTHDAY song paid royalties whenever;
Sung in movies or TV shows; but that couldn’t go on forever!
Time-Warner would clear 2 million a year; for 30 years royalties;
But time has run out; they’ve lost all their clout;
And now you can sing it for free!

Audi, Bugatti and Bently; Lamborghini and Porsche;
All wholly owned right down to their bones, by VOLKSWAGON, of course!

A&E, HULU, Star Wars, and who knew;
Pixar, and ABC all;
For years have belonged to the business whose song;

With its 900 planes, this company can claim;
They own more than the British Air Force!
So should war interrupt; put your food tray back up;
You’ll be flying AA the whole course!

EXON had to pay, to clean up the bay, from the Exon Valdez spill.
The 17 million a day that they spent, seems like a lot until;
We found that their income, could pay it and then some;
Earning 93 million a day!
With that kind of luck it was drops in the bucket;
And if they gave their reserves away;
The whole population of every world nation;
Would get 3 barrels each, today!

Nobody tells us how AMAZON sells us;
More products than anyone reckoned;
But others look pale when we tell them their sales;
Exceed 400 items per second!

SAMSUNG alone has grown on its own;
To 300,000 employees!
Microsoft, Apple, and Google we find,
Cant beat that number even combined!

Just silly facts; for which no one asked;
That someone gets paid to keep track of!
Unfortunately, that persons not me;
You can tell by my income, (or lack of!)

Brilliantly shared fun facts. I remember you did a few like this four or so years ago. They were fun and popular, as this is and will be.

You are one smarty cookie, lass.

Splendid writing. Hail to all the workers who are lucky enough to manufacture corrugated cardboard and those who drive the trucks who pick it all up, and oh, btw,
nobody knew what they made, nobody understood
how to communicate with the customer or how to change whatever it was they made better / that was just how it was.

I love your fact based informational poems. Most if the time I don/'/t know this stuff. I love Burger King! And now you have me searching Abercrombie and Fitch/'/s website. 😆

Thank you Queen Softy!!! I bow to your superior mind.

Wow!! Impressive.
Definitely holds true that you learn something new
everyday. They do say that knowledge is power, I
guess that is true whether the facts are of great
importance or not :)
Brilliant as always my friend
