Last Laugh! Advertiser With a Toll-Free Number

"Publishers Billing Emporium Inc", at PO Box 1787 Provo UT 84603-1787
has a toll-free number of 1-800-834-4181.

They send out postal solicitations touting "one of the lowest available
rates we can offer for your regular subscription". This "one of the
lowest available" rate was 3 years of Alaska magazine for $60.99.

These clowns evidentally think that anyone who is interested in Alaska
must have flunked third-grade arithmetic. You can order a one-year
subscription on Alaska magazine's web page for $18/year, or in the
most recent magazine there's a subscription card for $16.95 for one
year and $29.95 for two years.

With such a valuable offer, they may need some help in testing their
toll-free number.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding what to eat for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed sheep contesting the vote.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: I shouldn't be surprised if they spam
a lot also ... so many magazine subscription outfits are pretty loose
with the volume of email they send out. Oh well, most everyone around
here knows the routine by now, I am sure. PAT]
