M and M/Mars Candy Ignores My Great Idea Submission

My letter to the Mars candy company have gone unheeded, my GREAT ideas I suppose either tossed in the trash bin, or the devilish little guys are hard at work stealing my ideas. Sure they look cute in the commercials but look into the total candy dominance of this company and you'll start to wonder if M and M maybe stands for Mafia and Maniacs.

I submitted several ideas to Mars, one being an idea for a LARGE size M and M, maybe 4 inches wide, with a crunchy shell/chocolate interior, kind of like an all day sucker, something to enjoy on a longer term basis. Not as large as this photo, just bigger than normal. This led me to thinking about my dog. Everyone says chocolate will drop a dog like rat poison so I thought- why not make a meat-filled M and M so our four legged friends can enjoy the M and M experience?

It is possible someone already had this idea as I came across the M and M Meat Shops online. I am not sure if they are a butcher with a coincidental name or a Mars outlet selling my creation.

In any case. click on the letter below to read the work of genius that these people have managed to totally ignore.

My Rocket Powered Swim Fin Idea Submitted To

Perhaps you might enjoy my pursuit of a new invention that would revolutionize swimming, allowing all of us to slide through the water like Michael Phelps. I submitted an idea to, an online scuba and swim store, an idea fro Rocket Powered Swim Fins!

Read the whole story here in the letter. Apparently the folks at do not share my enthusiasm as the letter has gone unanswered.

Our First OomBa Mail Response- And It Is A Doozie!

So the first letter ever to go out in the OomBa Mailbag was to the Bluebonnet Nudist Resort in Alvord, Texas. I inquired as to how accomadating they would be to a poor gent with a bit of a hairy situation. Read the whole sad tale yourself right here. Click on the letter for a much better view.

Well, a few weeks later a LARGE PRIORITY! package arrived from the resort. How exciting, possibly it was a stack of legal warnings from their lawyers. Nope. Super cool Edy and Bluebonnet sent me a great T-Shirt. For FREE! My daughter examined the package and wondered "They paid $4.60 to send that to YOU?" Well, it is OomBa Mail, right?

The super gracious and welcoming letter inside showed the Bluebonnet Park to be a First Class business, and...

The FREE T-SHirt sure as hell didn't hurt either! Thanks Edy and Bluebonnet for being so kind and fir that, you receive a FREE link on OomBa Mail, for like... forever!

Please leave comments, let your friends know about OomBa Mail, and visit often.
