Yeah, it's no fun to be the butt of jokes, but there's something endearing about The Mike & Ike guys being banished to Fargo for failing to meet sales goals. The twenty-four members of the salesteam would have gotten Hawaii if they made a 4% improvement, but the state of the economy meant they got the boobie-prize: a trip to Fargo. From what I heard on the radio yesterday, not only is this giving them some publicity, but the Fargo visitors' bureau is using it to their advantage, too - every article about the talks about how it's not like the movie here, and how everybody's so nice. Sure, being sent to Siberia for failure seems like a joke, but everyone seems to be making something Good and Plenty out of it!
