Get-Rich Scheme

     I've figured it out: I'll start a line of frozen "diet foods:" attractively packaged, with photos of tasty meals and inside, a nice reusable plastic plate.  ...And no food.  Not a bit.  I'll call it "Barmecide Feasts." It'll be a year, easy, before anyone bothers to look up the term.

     (And recipes -- "Super-Easy Chicken Barmecide!"  Oh, I will be rolling in money.  Or at least miming it.)

Bonus points: you can do a sub-line for rugrats and call it Barma Kids.

I imagine that the hipsters wouldn't get the literary reference.

Brings to mind Famine's new modus operandi in Good Omens.

Barmecide? That kills people who are barmy?

You could start a food line called "Phantom Foods" and make this your flagship culinary product.

Just think of the marketing opportunities! Fat free! Sodium Free! Gluten Free! The Ultimate Health Food!

There is no off position on the genius switch.
