We are (not) legend. Though for the record we like to think this is due to a technicality.

We are so not legend. And we will so not be legend. As it turns out the Bic Legend marketing campaign is only for residents of the UK and Ireland. Who knew? Not us. Still we got a very nice letter from Bic - see below, which we think kind of rocks. So, while we may not qualify for legendary status, we still feel special, and really, isn't that more than we could have hoped for?

Hi Ben,

Unfortunately the competition is only open to residents of UK & Ireland (I’m assuming you are a Chicago resident, let me know if this isn’t the case). However, there is a possibility that the campaign might open up to include North America; if it does I’ll make sure you know so that you can decide if you’d like to be part of that competition - it’s a shame as you’d definitely be one of the stronger Local Legends!

Thanks for your interest,

Too bad. If it's any consolation, you'll always be a legend to us. (And I'm not just saying that as some sort of shameless ploy for a salary and health insurance as Assistant Flunky.) But look on the bright side - at least this frees you to continue disliking Bic pens.

Thanks man, and its not like we didn't feel some pressure being an almost legend, you should see the legend union rules, crazy.
