Useful Stuff, String

So I looked at Cookie Sunshine's Illustration Friday entry, which is wonderful, and was reminded of this John Cleese bit about an advertising man who has to find a way to advertise 5000 miles of string which is unfortunately in 5 inch lengths. From the Secret policeman's Other Ball, I believe.

thanks for the visit… and kind words… i'm glad i was able to inspire… and i do love the guerrilla art… it's probably a good thing that they were all spoken for as i would just want to keep it anyway… if you feel like sending one my way… i'll keep it in my office at the museum of contemporary art…
