In most big business deals there's usually a kickback to the buyer in some way or another... what do you think Thomas Jefferson got out of the deal with Napoleon in the Louisiana Purchase?
Dear Moulin Ruse,
What did Jefferson get from Napoleon to sweeten the deal? French ticklers.
Seriously. There were about a dozen of them, half named Josephine, all of them expert ticklers, not one of them paler than a Turkish teacup. Jefferson giggled and giggled, through night after dusky night.
