The pdga, and happy endings planned this all right from the start, it was pretty smart marketing, it was good exposure, and funny, win win,
Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-lagunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness" So I got that goin for me, which is nice

Of course it was planned, it created so much more publicity this way, you have no idea how marketing works if you don't get that, it wasn't product placement, or an endorsement of the sport it was eposure on a national level, it was smart marketing, you didn't feel like you were being marketed to at all, dance puppet dance

outside of disc golfers being babies, this thread has taught me that pappabear hates the english language, doesn't understand marketing, and might be racist. pappabear has all the qualifications to be the pdga's public relations rep.

Jsun, I am in e-marketing, and trust me this was smart marketing, I'm not racist in anyway, that's redic, as for english, I know when and where to bother with correct grammar and punctuation, online forums are not in that group, enjoy being an internet heckler, every thread needs one

So when did proper grammar and punctuation start taking more work than incorrect? It doesn't save you any time or thought to riddle your post with comma splices and when you know the rules of writing you do them automatically.
