"I remember when it snowed in the Sahara."
Joe credits David Rapkin as a collaborator.
Joe is a businessman without financial constraint, embarking upon one grandiose scheme after another without regard to its plausibility or consequences, amoral and indifferent. Each of them fails with disastrous effects, yet he "picks himself up, dust himself off, claps his hands together, rubs his palms, looks upward, and moves on" to the next scheme each time with reckless confidence reminiscent of a lunatic business self-help author.

I always loved this one. Classic absurd stuff: all of Joe's failed outlandish business ventures.
Fantastic if you're a fan of the absurd, obssessive detail kind of shows.
