Past Words of the Day

1. The Japanese cherry tree that makes the National Cherry Blossom Festival possible. The festival first started in 1934 to commemorate the mayor of Tokyo's gift of 3,000 sakuras to the city of Washington, D.C. The number of trees has since grown to over 6,000.

There are many laughs to be had with this one. However, if you're a multi-level marketer yourself, you might not find it funny.

2. Awesome mockumentary about ONITRAC, a fictional MLM scheme that is frighteningly similar to real MLM schemes. It is a little over-the-top, but unfortunately its portrayal of the pyramid scheme world isn't too far from reality.
