MailChimp's Live Chat With a King
Today, we had the great honor of live chatting with King Erediawa, of Benin Land. He initiated the live chat on MailChimp.com, and spoke with our customer service team. Apparently, the king was looking for an email inbox service. You know, so he could send business proposals to a few bazillion colleagues. When he realized we didn't offer inboxes, he still was kind enough to give us a chance to invest in his opportunity. For this reason alone, you should consider adding LivePerson chat to your website. This is a transcript of our chat with the king...

Nice, if the deal goes through maybe I can get a few monkeys from you. I find the import rates are *way* to high nowadays, especially for good code monkeys.

Mail Chimp has plenty of number one quality monkey. No need for the King's unmighty monkey products.
Mail Chimp win.
Thank you for the LOLs.

I just want to let you know that I can make customized t-shirts for your monkeys. OK, they are not for monkeys per se, but a baby tee could fit a capuchin, I should think. I wouldn't try long-sleeved t-shirts for orangutans, however, unless your orangs happen to like the 3/4 sleeve look.
Please wire the sum of $2,500 to the off-shore account in the name of my uncle, the recently deposed Regent of Rhesus, along with your bank account and we will refund the excess amount to you.
(And thank you for the laughs.)
