“This is not a get-rich-quick scheme, although to be fair, you will get rich, quickly, and it's a scheme”
“It's not a pyramid scheme, it has 'downlines' and 'uplines' connected with 'crosslinks'. As you progress up your upline there is less people, no, it's more of a 'triangle' scheme, unless you allowed crosslinks into the 3rd dimension, then you would have like a 3 dimensional triangle, you know a pyr...oh.”
Amway is an ancient pyramid which came originally from another galaxy a long time ago. It was brought to Earth by a pair of Greys who crash landed in the United Spades of Amerika in 1947. When the authorities first found the spacecraft and discovered that the Greys were Amway distributors, they devoted maximum effort to keeping the Greys locked up, in order to protect the wider society from this menace. Tragically however, despite these efforts the Greys managed to escape from Amerikan government custody at some point in the early 1950s.
The Greys travelled the country for a year or two before arriving in Grand Rapids, at which point they came across several people in whom they identified similar levels of avarice and greed as those observed both in the original Builders and in their own race. They therefore asked these people if they "would be interested in looking at a business opportunity," keeping it very low-key. Despite having worked out well for the Greys and the Builders, throughout the rest of the universe Amway enjoyed around the same sterling reputation as that of the average rabid dog, so the Greys knew early on that if they were going to grow a large distributorship on this planet, the P-word had to be kept out of the conversation.
The rest is history. After they initially became involved, the Greys trained their new human downline in how to hold the regular mind control rituals which kept less greedily-inclined beings interested in the business. The greedy ones didn't need such help staying interested, as they knew it was a scam anyway but didn't mind at all, so long as it allowed them to continue to relieve others of their money. The greedy humans became known as TEAM members.
Although most of this planet now knows what the rest of the universe did about Amway, it is still quite popular here, mainly among those fixated on money. Because of the alarming number of people who've wised up however, the Greys directed their human followers to change the business's name on this planet to Alticor/Quixtar five years ago. This change may also allow the Greys to establish distributorships on other planets where Amway had previously been banned, but probably only temporarily.
If you are approached by somebody who you don't know who asks you if you "would be interested in looking at a business opportunity," it might be best to remember what your parents told you about talking to strangers as a child, since the person asking you this question has only slightly different intentions from that nice, but somewhat scary looking man who used to wait in a van outside your primary school and hand out lollipops to the other kids.

edit Fun facts about the Products
- Amway's line of Vitamin C is the only one that has actual vitamin C, all the rest have ascorbic acid, which are completely different, apart from the small caveat that they are exactly the same thing.
- Amway's line of liquid concentrated laundry detergent is the only detergent to actually clean the washing machine. Powders can cause great damage to the machine. Consequently Amway also has a powder that cleans the washing machine too.
- They can be purchased at wholesale. So when you buy a years supply of generic dishwashing detergent, for example you pay only 90% of what you would had you purchased standard products at retail, add in postage you may pay a little more but if this happens relax, you get 4% back in cash. Why NOT buy a decades supply?
- Amway's line of personal hygiene products will NOT incite household pets to attack the user in a savage frenzy, no matter what you may have heard.
edit Going 'Diamond'
A highly soughtafter accolade within the Amway community is to attain the status of going Diamond. This can be achieved in 2 main ways.
- After years in industry the Individual Business Owner (henceforth IBO, to cite the vernacular) will seek out very specific conditions. Going diamond requires exposure of carbon-bearing materials at high pressure, ranging approximately between 45 and 60 kilobars but at a comparatively low temperature range between approximately 1652–2372 °F (900–1300 °C). These conditions are known to be met in two places on Earth; in the lithospheric mantle below relatively stable continental plates, and at the site of a meteorite strike.
