Who’s who bullshit!

En ocasiones pasadas comentamos sobre los ególatras que presumen su futura adscripción al ridículo libro autobiográfico Who’s who in America (or Latin America, or the UNIVERSE!).

Para que no se quede en duda sobre la fidelidad de mis comentarios (o sea, para que no crean que me muero de la envidia) les comparto el siguiente correo que acabo de recibir (To do list: i) correr al Comentario para que me entrevisten, ii) comprar botellas de espumoso para una celebración nice en compañía de gente bonita, iii) remodelar mi guardarropa ):

No se confundan compañeros, este libro es una mera compilación de información sobre personas necesitadas de atención. Como bien argumentaba uno de los ególatras locales, no les cobran por poner sus datos, pero díganme incrédulos lectores, quién? quién va a comprar un libro con una lista  con un montón de nombres?? QUIÉN? Solamente los que pidieron estar en ella, así podrán tenerla en un aparador en sus oficinas o convenientemente ubicada en la mesita de centro de la estancia de su casa!.

    Ya me llegó a mi también:

    Dear C. BONILLA,

    I am the editor-in-chief of Who’s Who in the World, and I have received your name through a private nomination process. I’m writing to ask if you would provide us with information about your personal and professional accomplishments for possible inclusion in the book.

    Inclusion in Who’s Who in the World indicates real accomplishment. The book is a global reference relied on by universities, libraries, corporations, and governments around the world. Many people put this recognition on their resumes or CVs.

    bla bla bla

    Totalmente igual que el tuyo y seguro del wey ese que le tienes envidia. 😛
