  1. Can you explain 'inrageous' a bit? It seems outrageous, but...(what the 'in' part mean)?

    I have a small issue with non-profiteering: I don't think you meant it this way, but I've heard there's a sense that people who work in nonprofit do so because they "couldn't make it" in for-profit business. That's not true & I think your word suggests it. I still like you though.

  2. The best ads are "seemingly outrageous." If they were actually outrageous, people would get fired. Hence: "inrageous" - outrageous within the realm of acceptability.

    I give a big speech at school every year at work-placement time about how non-profits are awesome - my tongue-in-cheek word is only for laffs.
