Kelly Perdew, former 'Apprentice', has a new job

I knew this picture would come in handy one day. My ex-step-cousin-in-law (his ex-wife's mom used to be married to my uncle, if you follow) went to middle school with Perdew, and presented me with this yearbook photo after Perdew won his season of 'The Apprentice'. Good times. :D

Anyway. Sometimes, when you air your love of the game on the internets and make your email address available to the public, you get some odd emails. I suppose I'm on someone's PR list, because I got this email with a press release as an attachment:

Hey there,
