Kumquat Carols

Enjoy your holidays and make sure to sing these kumquat carols!

To the tune of Rudolph the red nosed reindeer

Tobango the red fleshed kumquat
Had very shiny skin!
If you ever ate it
You would say it tastes good

All of the other kumquats
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Tobango
Join in any kumquat trees

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
George Muterstein came to say
Tobango with your skin so bright
won't you guide my company today?

Then all the kumquats loved him
As they shouted with glee
Tobango the red fleshed kumquat
You'll go down in history!

To the tune of we wish you a merry Christmas

We wish you a merry kumquat
We wish you a merry kumquat
We wish you a merry kumquat
And a happy kumquats eve!

We'll give you lots of Ferkingtons
We'll give you lots of Ferkingtons
We'll give you lots of Ferkingtons
And a Saccelberry-Gerard!

More on Surpassa Fika and Treey

More exciting news this week in the Small Citrus world. A minor riot in Houghton by customers of Treey {TREE-EE}, possible insider trading with Surpassa Fika.  This week was the third consecutive week since a time in August when Ferkington has not been the leader in stocks by the end of the week. We talked to Vintiń Queninoski in Boise, Idaho about the strange phenomenon. He works at the St. Liynel Institute for the the L-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) Impaired. He told us that he hates Ferkington for "their obvious health hazards" and he is "relieved that their massive profits are finally falling."
  The IKF (International Kumquat Federation) is being persuaded by Aroldis Reynie Shapiro, a federal agent and committee member, to investigate insider trading by Philipé Switzensten. Switzensten was a former Chairman of the Board and Vice President of International Trading for Surpassa Fika. Shapiro has only gotten only roughly 5 percent of the committee to approve.
In other news, reports say Police were forced to shut down Treey last Friday due to customer fights in a long line after work hours. Treey declined to comment. Also Kilamanjaro-Dormington board members got into a fight that involved chair throwing. The board is over-populated by Dormington members.

Who is George Muterstein?

Big news: Kilimanjaro has finally agreed to a merger with Dormington! Dormington, which was previously in serious financial trouble is looking for new success. The two companies usually rival each other in the market, but experts believe that the new union will be stronger, financially and otherwise, than the sum of it parts.
We have some new info on George Muterstein, the new owner of Tobango. Here is his Bio:
Muterstein had a frustrating early life. This was because his strictly Lutheran mother, the famous city dentist Vivian Yanious-Canterbury pushed George to follow her footsteps. He rarely saw his father Harry Muterstein, who was a hard working marketing director for a hardhat company. As a depressed teen, George was directed by his father to speak to a Rabbi for guidance. Muterstein liked the Rabbi a lot and decided to attend Rabbinic school. At this point, his mother divorced his father. He later graduated with top marks, became a successful reform Rabbi and wrote several popular books. The biggest hit was Moose and the Divine: A Spiritual Journey. Muterstein went on to possess much stock in the Kumquat industry before acquiring Tobango Kumquats LLC.

Heart Attacks and Hybrids

In general news we were stunned to hear that Ferdinand Franzmuten Ferkington, the great- grand nephew of Sir Fredrick F.  Ferkington and late owner of Ferkington Kumquats L.L.C., suffered a fatal heart attack Thursday, November 19th. A Florida hospital told us that Ferkington's artery conditions were bad enough before the failure. Unnamed sources tell us that the family is in personal and financial turmoil.
New startup companies are producing, orangequats, limequats, and other kumquat hybrids.  We talked to Marküs Smedlicker about these new hybrids.  
"The orangequats are like kumquats but sweeter.  My personal favorites are kumsimmons, which are a cross between persimmons and kumquats,"Smedlicker said.  "I occasionally add some limequat juice to stir fries."

Another great week

Exciting week in the Kumquat world. Tobango was bought, Kilimanjaro spokespeople were ruled guilty on Saturday for saying obscenities at the Stonik company and Stonik  Kumquats have been spread throughout northern Florida.
But the question really is are Tobangos worth the monumental price tag? Some people think the price will drop for Tobangos now that George Muterstein has stepped in as owner. Most people have not tried a Tobango, but the ones who have seem to enjoy them. They are underrated in taste and nutrition. The company has been in financial debt for a while. We talked to Solomon H.A. Arkanstonias about the quality versus price of Tobangos.
"All in all it is not worth the price to buy a Tobango for every day occasion, but when you have a special party Tobangos are the way to go." Arkanstonias also said that due to the current recession  Tobangos are waning in popularity. But the question is, will Tobangos finally rise? 
The other thing that occurred this week is that some Kilimanjaro spokespeople were heavily fined for yelling obscenity about the Stonik company to the media. The Kilimanjaro company formally apologized to Stonik and company officials for Kilimanjaro called their spokespeoples' actions " Pathetic." 

Next post- Companies are now producing Orange kuats and Lime kuats. We go in depth in a new question. How do these fruits rate next to regular Kumquats?

What's going on at Stonik

Lots of excitement in the Kumquat world. Down in Tallahassee, the revival of the Stonik Company has been slow, but intriguing. A spokesperson for Stonik says that their first batch is coming out in a few weeks. Rumor says that some batches are already being securely distributed in one or two markets. This makes the demand even higher for Kumquat lovers. Southwest and American Airlines have record highs on flights to Tallahassee due to incoming protesters who want nationwide distribution. We talked to Turner Tobiasen, a Kumquat lover in Chicken, Alaska. 

“It’s great that Stonik is coming back, but I’ll always be a Kilimanjaro fan,” He said. Kilimanjaro, which has its company headquarters in Jefferson City, Missouri, has become a less popular brand due the current recession. As for Stonik, we don’t have the most recent news, but we do think that when they come out, Stoniks will be a big hit.


As for the popular Kumquats, Ferkingtons are still at large in stores and doctors always recommend Saccelberry-Gerards for remedies. Both companies thrive and their shareholders do too.
