Dear ConAgra Foods,

recently two things happened to me. I ate one of your chicken pot pies (with green beans, carrots, and corn). I also purchased the domain Currently, I am running a get-rich-quick scheme on the site, which isn’t working out so well. But then it dawned on me, what better way to get rich quick than to just sell the domain! Synchronicity! What a perfect convergence of ideas!

So I figured, who better to buy than a company that makes pot pies? I did look around and couldn’t find any puppy ones in my local grocer’s freezer, but they have to make such things in other countries, right? And most other countries have the internet, so it’s a win win! is currently the #1 goggle (a popular search engine) hit for “puppy pot pie.” That’s something you just can’t get for free!

So let me know how much you’ll offer?

p.s. I thought the chicken pot pie was tasty!
