This is a question Conned

Have you carried out a successful con? Perhaps you hustled a few quid off a stranger, or defrauded a multi-national company. Or have you been taken for the wide-eyed, naive rube that you are?

Fabulous World Atlas
Many years ago, my dad once sent away for one of those offers that come in Sunday papers - not the Reader's Digest but the same idea - for something or other which came with a free gift of a "Fabulous Leather-Bound World Atlas".

So off went the claim and back came, to be fair, a leather bound world atlas. However, the dimensions and content of the tome were rather meagre, to say the least and it could not really be described as fabulous. It measured about 9 x 6 cm, had 8 pages and was covered with a very thin skin of purple coloured pseudo-hide.

It was at least free though (well, included with whatever the hell else it was he had to buy to get it), and gave us a lot of laughs.
