Louise in David vs. Goliath, Snarky

From the in-box of The Thirty-Something Bride:

Hi Louise,  

You recently worked with a colleague of mine on a post for American Bridal . I’m currently working on editorial outreach for David's Bridal to promote their bridesmaid dresses.  Your site has the audience we’re looking to reach out to and we would love to work with you.

I am contacting you to see if you’d be interested in either writing a post or allowing a guest post that features any of the lines or products that the  David's Bridal bridesmaid collection carries. If this is something you would be interested in discussing please email me back at your earliest convenience.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Really? I mean REALLY? Do you think these people actually look at what's written here or just where traffic's going based on their quick Google search? Shame on you, SEO Associate for not doing your homework and not reading the information on how I pick and choose who we want to be sponsors around here.

I mean who in their right minds would choose ME to write in support of David's Bridal considering what I've written about them before: here, here, here and here?

I'm tempted to say, "Sure! I'd love to!" and take their money, just because they're stupid. And lazy. 

But then there'd be a bunch of lies all up on this blog and I simply can't abide the lies.
