Once upon a time, there was a man named Lee who worked at Ford. He was tasked with designing a new car that would take the market by storm. Lee dedicated years of his life to this project, pouring his heart and soul into it. Finally, the day came when the new car was ready to launch. Lee was so excited, he could hardly contain himself.
As the car hit the market, Lee eagerly waited for the positive feedback to start pouring in. But instead, customers were returning the cars in droves. They complained about everything from the design to the performance. Lee was heartbroken. What had he done wrong?
One day, Lee stumbled upon a crossword puzzle that he decided to try and solve. He came across a clue that read “Famous Ford flop.” As he racked his brain for the answer, he suddenly realized what a colossal mistake he had made. The answer to the crossword was “EDSEL.”
Lee was struck by the irony of it all. He had poured all this time and effort into creating a car that would be remembered for all the wrong reasons. And it was now the answer to a crossword clue about famous failures. From that day on, Lee vowed to never forget the lessons he learned from the infamous EDSEL flop.
