good try, Linus
Today Linus would sell his Kitty Crumplies as being made from “organic, acid-free recycled paper made from sustainable forests” and claim to donate a percentage of each sale to some wildlife charity. He’d be a millionaire.
Linus has given all the information not required to be given to clients. Not a good marketing strategy. A good salesman can sell a comb to a bald headed client. Why does CB has all the wrong guys in his team? That apart, I love this team a lot!
They’ll treat you differently when you change your blanket into a sport coat.
Linus must’ve come up with that idea long before the Pet Rock was a thing.
rap it in plastic…….
Linus learns the meaning of commodity.
Try something like a scratching post.
Linus is ejected from The Shark Tank….
Linus is charging way too much! For 5 cents, one could get psychiatric advice…..
Not quite the entrepreneur as yet. Give him some time.
With us and our cat it was balls of tin foil. When we got a new refrigerator, we found dozens of them under the old one.
You just haven’t found any of the stupid people yet. Give it time!
Linus, you forgot to tell her about the patent pending manner in which you crumbled the paper.
She’s lying. After Linus left, she went on Amazon and bought one for 2 cents

They would have told you that right off on Shark Tank
I dunno… there are such a plethora of simple things people won’t do for themselves. Corollary: any task one cannot or will not do for themselves is worth the price of someone who can and will.
……“and sure enough!” ;o}
Should’ve went for the missile-guided laser pointer Linus lol
I find it a little odd Violet’s name wasn’t brought up.
Violet went through three phases in the Peanuts comic strip. In the early 50s, she was a sweet little girl with pigtails who enjoyed making mud pies and had something of a romantic crush on Charlie Brown. From the late 50s to the mid 60s she was malicious and snobbish and was always tormenting Charlie Brown by telling him what a failure he was and how greatly she despised him. Lucy was Mother Teresa compared to Violet in those days. Finally, from the late 60s to the mid 90s, Violet was Schulz’s favourite background “extra”; she no longer had any personality or did anything noteworthy, but would appear in cinema queues and the throwaway panels of Sunday strips.
Should have got a patent.
There really are people who will buy things they can make themselves. Like dinner….you can make dinner, but you order takeout.
An excellent example of labor adding no value, even decreasing the value.
Next stop Shark Tank.
Just way ahead of the times, Linus. Give it about thirty-five to forty years and folks will be jumping all over it.
I had a cat that would fetch a rolled up little ball of foil and bring it back to me. ( It went for walks on a leash too)
$30 toy, my cats’ reaction, “Meh”. Taking old shoe lace off shoe, cats’ reaction, “Oh boy! Shoe lace! Must get it!”
Try the adults.
Ahhh, but do you have the sparkly paper? That is the difference between engineering and marketing.
Sell bottled water.
