Who wants dipped in chocolate?

As an aficionado of "needs" and "wants" not followed by "to be" (there have
been some good articles on this recently in American Speech; I don't have the
references at hand), I found this delicious example in the trade magazine
_Corporate & Incentive Travel_ for July 2001, Page 40, a sidebar to an
article on spas. Complete text:


Ever dream of being dipped in chocolate? At the new three-story,
17,000-square-foot Spa at the Hotel Hershey, Hershey, PA, your dreams can
come true. The $7-million Spa overlooks the famous Hershey Gardens and
features numerous chocolate-centered, signature treatments, including the
Whipped Cocoa Bath, the Cocoa Butter Scrub, and the Chocolate Fondue Wrap.
This latter treatment involves "Chocolate Mud" hydrotherapy, combining Moor
Mud, extracted from Moor Bog, and the essence of cocoa, for a truly singular
spa experience. The Emperor Nero never had it so good.<<

If anyone truly needs or wants the original, I'll be glad to send it. - Allan
