Marketplace: Enchanted Times Mini #2.5: sweetest thing?

Barely moments after announcing EEMS new and controversial sponsorship deal for their recent postage stamps, further EEMS survival tactics have emerged. In the latest mini edition of the Enchanted Times, an extended editorial looks at the role of Hansel & Gretel March in our struggling economy. Once known solely for their survival following numerous harrowing instances of abuse and neglect as young children, the siblings have recently experienced a meteoric rise to the top of the the Enchanted Realms’ commercial sector. As joint Managing Directors of the astoundingly successful Fast-As-You-Can Corporation, the public immediately bought into their ingenious gingerbread-infused weight loss plan.  The Marches have now built on this success by purchasing an independent (but fully & officially sanctioned) EEMS concession – the first of its kind – offering an alternative delivery service: Fast-As-You-Can Courier Company.

In Enchanted Times Mini #2.5 vol ii an extended editorial examines the question of whether or not the Gingerbread Man’s reputation as a potential psychopathic killer has any founding in reality,  the CoCo‘s practice of rehabilitating escaped Gingerbread Men, and the growing March ‘monopoly’.  In addition, this issue includes a voucher for the reader to claim a FREE (+ postage) sachet of Fast-As-You-Can CoCo Cocoa! A homicidal gingerbread reading list is also provided.

Whatever conclusions you draw after reading this issue, please remember to always approach any baked goods with extreme caution, for your own safety.
