    THE IRONIC BACKER SPECIAL:
    If Ghost is successfully funded, I will get a large (like, coffee cup radius) tattoo of the WordPress logo! I'll make a video of it and send it to you. Presumably you'll publish it on the internet, so all can revel in my humiliation. You'll also get everything in the Elite Developer Special. See? Even if you don't like the idea, you can still help.
