ABSTRACT
This article discusses a strategy for direct marketing. The party season is over and it's back to sending out the old "mailus junkus." But for those who managed to avoid stumbling around the Christmas parties grasping for the nearest half-dressed piece of flesh, never mind, there is still next year to look forward to. More importantly, people can now reflect with pride on how they babbled incoherently at people whose respect they have been trying to cultivate over the past year, before revealing your heretofore hidden talent for belly-dancing and body-popping.
