SLAP!

Actually, we've recently seen an Internet service RFP requesting Class
A addresses because they were "better" than Class Bs! At least they
won't be asking for any Class Cs - too low rent for them !

Hmm, I've just realised that we've just been assigned a "Class A" /18,
so maybe we can supply the customer "Class A, Number 1 Grade, Premium,
Royal Quality IP addresses" after all.
