Business Opportunity (NOT NIGERIAN)

I'm looking for a general manager to do all the work for this great startup idea I've had. I wanted to recruit the cream of the crop, which is why I'm posting this to journal land. No timewasters here.

Anyway, I'm going to start a new product called... wait for it... Open Sauce. It's ketchup - but with a twist. The twist is the name! The brilliance is in the simplicity.

I'm looking for someone to buy lots of Heinz ketchup at wholesale, steam off the labels and gum on my new ones. I'll advertise my product on Slashdot. You can get 10% of any profit or losses made.

Geeks will love adding Open Sauce to any closed shop traditional fries they have. And it works brilliantly with other foods too! I plan on sending a complimentary box to Linux, ESR, RMS and Bruce Perens for the cachet. Maybe it could have Linus's head on the bottle.

Here's a mock up. I used an old photo of Linus deliberately, to flatter him. Open Sauce - Good With Anything.

... just take tabasco sauce, steam off the labels, and glue on the BSD devil.

Actually, "Pain and Punishment" hot sauce would be better (orders of magnitude hotter than tabasco) but it already has a hot-looking leather babe on it.

Good Idea (1)

but it needs some catchy name. I once had some tabasco like sauce called "Dante's Inferno" with a man screaming in torment on the front of the bottle. I had it for years and it never went off. Perhaps because I could never use it without rendering inedible whatever I was cooking at the time.

That is unethical in so many ways... (1)
