Comic #624

1 Nigerian Finance Bureaucrat: This was a brilliant idea, sir! I don't know why other governments haven't thought of it before.
2 Nigerian Finance Minister: Yes, and it's raised lots of revenue for us. See if you can get some more takers for other government departments.
3 [sound]: Ring! Ring!
3 Nigerian Finance Bureaucrat: Excuse me, Minister.
4 Nigerian Finance Bureaucrat: Hello, this is the Microsoft Nigerian Treasury Department. How can I help you?

I'm surprised no governments have done this. It'd certainly raise revenue and help balance national budgets. I could live with the Harrods House of Commons, The Pepsi Whitehouse, and the BMW Reichstag.

Websnark was most appreciative of this strip, posting a comment here. It's actually mostly about my site navigation, but hey, I'll take what bouquets I can get.
2013-10-26 Rerun commentary: As long as, of course, the sponsorship deal is just a name branding, and the sponsoring company doesn't get any say in the running of the actual government. Never let it be said I come up with entirely stupid ideas.

Eh... okay, maybe some of them are. But this one is at most 98.7% stupid.
