Oh goodness. This April Fool's send-up of technology analysts has been creeping around the Internet for some time. But this is the first time I've seen it.

Please read. Very funny stuff. It's about Harvester Research's launch of ForceSales.com, the industry's first Analyst-as-a-Service (Aaas) offering.

I especially like their analyst frameworks: the Harvester Fave, the Harvester Magic Kingdom, and the Harvester Market Dream Cycle.

Other favorite tidbits: "Analyst As A Service" (AaaS), "Bad Ideas as a Service" (BiaaS), and "Gratuitous Advice as a Service" (GAaaS).
