Guest Prank  - Cruiseship Bible Marketing

Rob-
Have loved your website for years- keep it up!
Hope you enjoy the attached. I was on a Celebrity Cruise ship last year and got kinda sick of them putting everything in your room that you might need- but then putting little cards on them saying you would be billed if you touched them. It was so unfair- even a bottle of water! So I went down to the computer room (at $.95 a minute) matched their font and find some adequate light cardstock and decided to expand their marketing to include the "complimentary" bibles in the rooms. We then spread copies throughout the ship. I wonder if anyone noticed?

Water Label Detail:

To quench your thirst, Celebrity Cruises is pleased to provide this bottle of water. Please note that, for your convenience, we will automatically bill $2.45 plus 15% gratuity to your Celebrity Sea Pass, should you choose to open and/or consume this.  Thank you. Celebrity Cruises. 

Bible Label Detail:

To quench your thirst for righteousness, Celebrity Cruises is pleased to provide this copy of the Holy Bible. Please note that, for your convenience, we will automatically bill $19.95 plus 15% gratuity to your Celebrity Sea Pass, should you choose to open or read this book.  Thank you. Celebrity Cruises. 

At their Employee Christmas party, all the presents under the tree probably have similar signs.

I don't know which I find more offensive, "for your convenience", or the 15% gratuity.

This prank needs to be repeated! If you find yourself faced with a card like these, please send me (Rob) a good photo and a description of the material.
