        Just got back from Wal-Mart and the checkout lady asked me if found everything I was looking for. I said where do you stock the Tarrents? She just looked at me funny.

    Using my financial savvy, I was going to suggest that TPG save registration costs by doing away with 7 of those companies in the chain. But one partner of TPG had the Rolling Stones play at his birthday party once. On the other hand, he may have used a Groupon like I did for that.

    Keep in mind that each of these 756 companies is an American citizen according to the supreme court.

    To paraphrase De. Seuss: since the structure appears to be general partners all the way down, I wonder what the objective was/is of manufacturing this very cute doll?…

    Fun, thanks!!
