Letter from "marketing" company

I am sure everyone gets these, but it made me laugh. I'm not sure I want to sign up with a marketing company that says an app "continues to do well" with 1 sale in 6 months. (It was a practice app I wrote years go... never took it off sale just because it seemed like more work than it was worth.) Anyway ... here's the letter.

Greetings from ComboApp,

    No better way to start the day than with a good laugh!

    What I especially love is the stupidity of offering a 10% coupon. How attractive is that? It costs them nothing to make it 50% or more because they have not mentioned the total cost at this point.

    IF! I ever let someone else market my apps, they have to do it on a percentage. We all know that no one crazy enough to offer that so why should we trust them?
