Top 3 Reasons To Love Constantin Basturea

Everybody loves Constantin. The PR blogosphere's pioneer and chief advocate got himself a big-time gig at Converseon, and who doesn't love it when good things happen to good people?

In Constantin's honor, here's a makeshift list of my Top 3 Reasons To Love Constantin Basturea:

1. His name.
I have yet to type it out without having to triple-check the spelling. How 'bout you?

2. His unbridled enthusiasm. This quote from his Converseon press release tells you everything you need to know: "there's no magic twelve-step cluetraining program that will allow businesses to be successful on the internet."

3. His honest-to-goodness goodness.
Always helpful, always nice, a consummate professional.

Maybe this'll start a meme! What are your top 3 reasons to love 'Da Man?

Congrats, Constantin!!

Nice post recognizing a wonderful colleague.

About his name... couldn't it be great to have a cool name like that? Constantin, I'm jealous.

At least Scott has a secret name (Merrit R. Hermitage) :-) Todd, do you have any idea what I'm talking about?

I am sorry (thankful?) to say I don't know what you mean about Scott...but assuming you mean Mr. Baradell, I can only assume it's the name he uses when he's "interviewing" the folks at Rellatio (the "porn-star PR firm") or paying homage to Strumpette! ;)

As for me, I like the give the name "Rex Ramforth" to snooty restaurant hosts. Always gives 'em pause!

John Wagner once wrote that I have the "coolest name in PR," but Goldhammer is nowhere near Constantin Basturea, neither in name nor in contribution to the PR blogosphere. Who is?

Good call Todd - you gotta hand it to someone who uses the word 'nexus' in his appointment release ;-)

Sorry, I thought you'd seen this funny post: http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=11303019&postID=114410333763631083

According to the formula, my own spam name is Luther E. Mason.

Rex Ramforth... that's great!

Ahh - hysterical. Then instead of "Rex Ramforth" you can call me, "Holstein C. Pettibone"!
