3M, the company behind the Post It Note, reported an earning increase of 44% for the first quarter of 2004. The AP reported that the earning gains were due to "swings in foreign currency and increased sales in its display business." However, I have another theory:
Post-It pranksters are artificially inflating 3M's earnings. Once the pranks stop, so will the profit gains. This could be the next Enron.
3M Earnings Rise Nearly 44 Percent
