The Tale of Gene and Charles
Two men. Gene and Charlie had known each other as children, but then then went their separate ways, as so many do.
One day after many years had passed they met quite by accident at the Bethesda Fountain in New York's Central Park.
Charlie recognized Gene almost immediately. My! How well he looked dressed in a custom-tailored suit by Meladandri with alligator pumps to match! Gene also sported a Gucci shoulder bag hanging causally from one arm and an equally expensive, fashionably-dressed female of considerable beauty on the other. He carried himself with an air that came close perilously to being a swagger.
Charlie, who had not yet made his mark, was the first to speak.
"Gene! Gene, my old friend, how wonderfully well you look!" he exclaimed. "Life must have treated you very kindly, eh, my friend?" Tell me, please, what has been the secret of your obvious success?"
Gene, who had not recognized his slightly shabby looking old friend right away, was somewhat taken aback, but answered cheerfully enough, "Well you see, I developed a formula that can make anyone's genitalia smell –– and taste –– exactly like a bowl of ripe fruit of the highest quality. The product has, as you can see, done very well."
The two of friends parted, and again went their separate ways, but the chance encounter got Charlie thinking ...
Three years later the two men bumped into each other once again –– this time at The Colony where Gene arrived to find Old Charlie seated like a Sultan on a banquette in a uniquely tinted, handmade silk suit imported from Hong Kong. Surrounded by six adoring females each dressed in designer gowns from Paris, each swathed in mink, sable and chinchilla and dripping with diamonds, rubies, emeralds and pearls, Charlie beamed with delight at the sight of his old friend Gene. Four waiters, six footmen and the Maitre D’ danced attendance on Charlie's entourage, while the man, himself, smoked serenely from a jewel-encrusted Turkish hookah.
"Eh bien!" cried Gene astounded. "And what pray tell has happened to bring about this remarkable change in your life, my dear Charles?
Beckoning the flabbergasted Gene to his table, then taking him aside, Charlie gently murmured, "I owe this all to you, old friend. After you told me you had discovered how to make genitalia smell and taste like ripe fruit, I went to work and found the way to make fresh fruit smell -- and taste -- like GENITALIA!’
“As you can see, the product is doing very well."
