ethicalEsq Sells Out

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 11:25 am

prof yabut flip   Welcome.  I’m Professor Yabut [yabut?] twin brother of that ne’er-do-well skepticalEsq.  “As of now, I am in control here.”  Reluctantly. 


The self-proclaimed ethicalEsq has apparently abandoned this weblog — to get rich quick through an “ethics certification” program called EsqChecker.  Previous Editor vanished so quickly that there has been no time to compose a proper introduction of myself or our faithful mascot Donkey O. T.

The little that we have learned about the plans and schemes of the so-called ethicalEsq has been gleaned from metadata hidden in his curt farewell notice.  The hidden text appears to be the rough draft of a brochure for EsqChecker.  Here are its contents:




announcing black


EsqChecker . . . your firm’s key to credibility (and higher profits)


with the EsqChecker logo, you can

leverage the ethicalEsq brand to gain instant trust and respectability


esq red check er

– we sent our check to ethicalEsq

and he gave us this one  –




Is there a Code of Conduct for EsqChecker members?


Of course not.  ethicalEsq respects the self-disciplinary tradition of the legal profession.  We at EsqChecker take your word (and your check).


Are any fees involved?


Is that a trick question?  Of course, there are.


How much?


We at EsqChecker, and our parent organization ethicalEsq, PC, strongly believe that our members come first.  Therefore, we subscribe whole-heartedly to the concept of value billing.   So, you tell us how much you think it’s worth to achieve an instant reputation for the highest level of integrity and professionalism.  Trust us, if your commitment to integrity is not high enough, we’ll let you know.


What else do we need to know about EsqChecker?


If there were more you needed to know, we would have told you.


That’s all the metadata we were able to recover.  Needless to say, Prof. Yabut is (relatively) speechless.  We don’t now how all this will turn out.  Check back soon, to see if this weblog is real, has reinvented itself, or is at least doing better than its predecessor.

P.S.  As he ran out the door, Previous Editor was heard mumbling, “There’s no money to be made in poetry, you can keep that useless haikuEsq.”   He also grumbled about our favorite Fool for failing to post today.
