"The Good, The Bad and The Cappy"

OK Cappy Cappites, time for a little experiment.

I'm off to the Black Hills this weekend (again, because, we'll, they're there).  However, I'm going to test this Amazon Affiliate link thing whilst away.  Below is a poster (and a link to it).  It is the coolest poster I have ever seen and I bought one when I was in Vegas, however, you can order it on Amazon.

I am fully aware that this poster may not be the most desired product by the lady readers of Cappy Cap, but for those of you economists out there who do love "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" I would strongly recommend this poster (I have it hanging in my office actually and it starts some interesting conversations).

The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly Movie (Clint Eastwood) Poster Print - 24x36 

My goal is to see if I can earn enough money to pay for my $20 gambling spree I shall go on in Deadwood.  It would give me warm fuzzies to see if there was $20 in my account to fund my gambling addiction.

Make sure you enjoy the decline today.

I struggle to see the value this is adding to our economy. Perhaps you need a marketing major.

I could give you some Keynsian BS about how the money would be spent and havea multiplier effect, but I'll just say it will increase my utility.

Which it will! And you want me to be happy, right?

With a twenty dollar reserve you can lend out $200, count this new figure as assets and explain to the casino dealer that he should give you $200 in credit; this credit would then be added to the $200, and with this you could cover any losses: this would be fractional gambling.

Of course I want you to be happy, it's my nature. The question is: how strongly do I want you to be happy?

Actually, Cap, I love this film. When my husband heard me quoting one day (while we were still dating) he perked his head up and said "I might have to marry you."

And lest we forget one of the best pieces of film scoring comes from this movie: Morricone's "Ecstasy of Gold."

Sorry I can't help you with your gambling addiction, though. No more frivolous purchases until we get the girls new beds since the baby will need the crib...damn kids again, always getting in the way of a good time...:-)

Why not a link to purchase the actual movie instead of a poster of limited utility?
