Maybe you’ve heard of ‘mashup songs’.Mashups are created when two or more already existing songs are seamlessly combined to create a new song. Like medleys, except cooler.
What a great idea. It appeals to my prudish sense of efficiency. It’s the musical version of multi-tasking.
But why stop at music?
2012 marks the 100th anniversary of Japan's gift of cherry trees to Washington DC, of Fenway Park, Girl Scouts and Oreo cookies.
But it’s also an election year. The Summer Olympics are coming up. Everyone is busy, for goodness sake.
So let’s mashup these anniversaries and celebrate them all together!
Flavor the creamy insides of the Oreos with cherry.
Sell them exclusively at Fenway Park.
Hire Girl Scouts only as vendors at Fenway Park to sell the cherry-flavored Oreos.
There you have it. The seamless combination of two or more existing anniversaries into a new celebration.
This idea could go places.
I best start working on the 2013 Anniversary Mashups.
So far my research has yielded that it is the 100th Anniversary of the first Income Tax and the 100th Anniversary of the Chautauqua Bird, Tree & Garden Club.
That will be one doozy of a party.
