    I think the flow chart is suggesting we generate money by charging the sun for a season ticket.

    Apparently there are £300m + Man Utd fans around the world, let's just bankroll our signings together.

    I've found some interesting theories on this idea:

    It seems very dependant on the sun bringing his friends along for the experience. Jupiter and Saturn are supposed to be real high rollers.

    I don't get it...

    Why is everybody responding to this thread like it's not a wind-up?:confused:

    Tell me it's just people playing along, and nobody thinks the OP is being serious?

    Dunno, shouldn't imagine many of us got through the op.

    Got to be able to get through it to find humour.

    You did I take it.

    Bohm et al. disproved the Hawking formula quoted above by AdZzUtd.

    A test collision of the High Performance Fan with yer typical Millwall or Leeds fan is planned by CERN later this year.
    A few Liverpool fans will be sprinkled on top in particle form - tho' devoid of charm and spin .
    This should surely end all controversy.

    The complete lack of any trace of wit or humour in the OP?

    I'm probably being old-school here but I expect something that's been written for a laugh to be... well... funny?

    Oh come on, it may not succeed in genuine comedy but the attempt at Chris Morriss-eqsue hunour is blatant, from the warped english and the silly buzzwords through to the biggest give away of the lot, the ridiculous diagram!

    If this guy is being serious, I'll eat the internet:

    The "Studies show" one is actually quite funny!

    No no no, the diagram clearly indicates that the sun is a Manchester United fan (in fact implying that it is THE Manchester United fan), and that, since it is larger than other United fans, it should pay a premium price for its season ticket. Seems reasonable enough.

    Clearly you've failed to undertand the flow chart correctly.

    I'm assuming it's not a wind up.

    On that basis and with reference to Fig. 1 - the opening diagram, what the feck is a purcase?

    Ok, he's a bit off.

    It's at this point I'd like to distance myself from all remarks I've made in this thread...I thought the OP was engaging in some japery. Turns out, he's just a bit weird. Stop being weird!

    This has to go into the classics. I've got tears in my eyes reading this thread, and I'm having a hard time trying to suppress the laughter. Thank God it's Friday and most people have left their cubes.

    first time I looked at the OP I just couldn't be arsed, looked like a joke but this time I actually read it.

    So in summary you are suggesting the club and it's commercial partners record when a united fan makes a purchase and these purchases go towards ranking fans in order of preference for season ticket sales. The partners get more money from sales, the club gets more money from commercial partners (what happened to word sponsor? seemed a perfectly good word to me) and the fan gets a slightly richer club with slightly richer players, more credit card debt and load of shit they didn't need or (probably) want.

    I know I'm being disingenious and the idea is that if a united fans wants a new fridge and they can benefit from buying from united's 'white goods commercial partner' then they might do just that but in essesnce it's just another way to screw the average fan over.

    Leave well enough alone.

    Oh, and the purple and red arrow is genius.

    If anyone failed to grasp the entirety of the graph displayed by the OP, here is a bonafide summary of the key economic concepts at hand, permitting one to fully comprehend the extent of its reasoning
