RE: Breville and the Power of Puns

Dear Mr. Sizer,

It occurred to me the other day, as I wondered around my
kitchen searching for answers to difficult snack-related
questions, that I had not used my Breville sandwich maker in
some time. After further thought it occurred to me that it had
been in 2008 during the unification bout between Wladimir
Klitschko and Sultan Ibragimov.

There was a time when my Breville Sandwich maker (a 4-Slice
RT50) would feature in my snacking regime on a daily,
occasionally twice-daily basis! Are you finding more and more
people turning their backs on the traditional Sandwich Maker
as our toasted bread needs become more Panini-centric?      A
disturbing trend I’m sure you’ll agree.

I am willing to help turn this decline around. I am the
chairman of a London based (but internationally renowned)
Punning consultancy. For a fee, Punning house will be able to
provide you with a range of Puns to meet all your advertising
campaign needs. I have enclosed two Puns (free of charge in
this instance) and a summary of costs for your interest.
                 The Breville Wears

Perhaps a tie-in with the high-end fashion label is exactly
what Breville needs to re-ignite the Sandwich maker flame.
Appealing to the cash-rich/time poor cosmopolitan snacker this
product could become a “must have” for the vapid but peckish

              Better the Breville you
Fend off the sinister advances of Kenwood and Russell Hobbs
(boooo!) with this reassuring message. I would advise the
spokesperson for this campaign be a familiar face but one that
hasn’t been seen on television for a while. Below are some

Terry Nutkins (Parrot Optional)

Moses Kiptanui – legendary 3000m steeple chase runner

These are just two of the top-end Puns that Punning House can
offer you. I would be willing to visit Breville UK
Headquarters to take a “Cognitive shower” with you and your
staff with a view to generating Puns for Breville UK’s future
Below is my fee for the “Cognitive Shower” service:

                                                  Total:     £5952.86

I’m   confident  you’ll   find  the   process  a   useful and
invigorating one. Over the three days I act very much as a
“Pun-enabler” bringing out the best in your advertising and
marketing executives. Here are some recent testimonials:

“Good stuff” - Dr. Paul Golby - CEO, E.ON UK

“A roller-coaster of emotions” - Benoit Testard – CEO, United

With the help of Punning House I can guarantee a 75% annual
increase in traditional sandwich maker sales. I look forward
to hearing from you soon.

Yours Sincerely

Steven Ferbrache
Chairman|Punning House
