The Truth Behind Empire Avenue Employee IPOs

by THE INFLUENCIER on September 24, 2010 •  2 comments

If you hadn’t noticed, you can now buy shares of Empire Avenue Employees with your hard earned eaves. Prior to today, these so-called “E-Class” stocks were unavailable for purchase, although one could easily lose him or herself for hours merely by gazing at their enchanting E-Shields and provocative profile pictures. Especially, if one were gazing into the sensusous, sultry eyes of VP of Marketing and Media Relations Tom Ohle (e)TOM, or as he prefers to be known, while strolling barefoot on white sand beaches on moonlit nights, HotTom….

Huh, what? Sorry. Lost my train of thought. Where was I?

Now, If you read the latest Empire Avenue blog post by CEO Duleepa Wijayawardhana (e)DUPS, you are lead to believe that the reason that stocks of Empire Avenue Employees were not available before and are now, is because, as (e)DUPS stated, they didn’t want to interfere with the markets.

Hear that, Chris Latko (e)CLATKO and Adriel Hampton (e)ADRIEL? Sounds like (e)DUPS is lookin’ to pick a fight.

thoughtful analysis and discussion of possible reasons behind the release of Empire Avenue Employee shares is going on over at perennial share price leaderboard resident and duct tape enthusiast William Pitcher’s (e)RZR Empire Building Network blog. Perusing the comments there, you might begin to think that, as Social-branding Guru Corey Tyhurst (e)COREYT offers, the Empire Avenue team is merely trying to find solutions to various kinks in Empire Avenue market dynamics by doing some real-world, in-the-trenches, so-this-is-how-the-common-folk-live, hands-on testing. And it is true, there is no substitute for that kind of get-your-hands-dirty, kick-the-tires, i-can’t-believe-i’m-driving-this-honda-because-my-other-car-is-a-yacht kind of test drive when you are bringing a complex piece of beta software to market. Any CEO worth their salt will tell you that.

However, THE INFLUENCIER and it’s crack team of investigative reporters have uncovered the truth behind the Empire Avenue Employee IPO’s and it isn’t pretty. That’s right. We’ve been lied to. Again.
