Even I can respect a business enterprise that has crossed the half-trillion dollar mark. I do expect Fowl Industries to reach a point comparable to this in the next five (or certainly ten) years. This seems quite possible considering that, ten years ago, Apple was only valued at $10 billion. Perhaps mine will even be the first company to break the record of $600 billion set by Microsoft (whose market cap is now valued at $267 billion).

Well. That’s helpful. and Snarky. And totally…unacceptable.
