Apparently it's true that the internet never forgets. Seven years ago
I posted about a company claiming to rent midgets for parties. In that post I didn't say I was renting midgets. I simply said there was a business claiming to rent them. In fact, I thought the idea sounded so odd that I had some doubts about whether the business was real. (And I probably shouldn't use the term 'midget.' I think 'little person' is now the preferred term.)
Anyway, soon after making that post, I started getting email queries from people interested in renting little people. In 2008
I first noted I was getting these strange emails, and I'm still getting them today, at the rate of about one every two months. Here's the latest I received, from a dental office in Atlanta:
Would you have a leprechaun available for Friday morning, March 16 for about 10 minutes in Atlanta? I’d like a little person dressed as a leprechaun to do a little walk through to kick off our meeting on Friday – it starts at 8:30am.
I don't know what there is in that seven-year-old post that makes people think I'm running a little-person rental service. Check back in another seven years to find out if I'm still getting the emails.
