In my constant pursuit of finding a way to make money whilst putting in the least amount of effort possible, I came up with an idea. I once read about a guy who would buy domain names of prospective athletes and then, when said athletes became big, he would sell the domain name to the athlete and make a buttload of money.
With the next Presidential election four years away, I figured I’d get a jump on the prospective candidates and cash in. After getting excited about the prospect of making a quick (relatively speaking) buck off the backs of some rich politicians it seemed perfect.
Now it was time to buy up some domain names.
I started with the blue chippers, Hillary, Ryan, Christie. Of course, I was late on all of them.
It was time to settle for some dark horses. For only $50, I could bet on General Petraeus changing his mind. Not terrible, but also most likely a waste of $50.
Someone else was trying to sell SarahPalin2016.com for $50,0000, which would be the like me trying to sell my Tabasco the bull Beanie Baby on ebay for the equivalnt of – I don’t know – $50.000.
Even the C-listers were taken.
Really Deval? Get over yourself.
Having lost all hope, I turned to the D-List. Dennis Kucinich. And there it was, those beautiful words everyone wants to read, “Congratulations! denniskucinich2016.com is available.”
Okay, I’ll admit it, I was behind the ball for 2016, but that doesn’t mean it was a bad idea. I just have to set my sights further down the road. MaliaObama2052.com is mine. Money in the bank. Now, I’m going to put this up as collateral, get myself a $50,000 loan and move out of my parents basement.
Time to make it rain.
