Veggies can make you rich! Maybe.

What are the qualifications for a CEO? Gumption? Innovation? A high school diploma?

Aspiring business execs don't necessarily need any of those things to become owner and CEO for the Web-based business Retiring founder Paul Wagner says his Seat O' Power is potentially open to all comers -- provided the applicants fork over $100 and write a 100-word essay on why they should become VeggieGear's next CEO.

"The next VeggieGear owner could be anyone!" Wagner gushed in his online press release.

The company hocks all manner of products based on the "VeggieTales" Christian video series, from T-shirts to real vegetable seeds (which don't sprout with googly eyes). Granted, it's not Microsoft, but Wagner insists the entire operation will be handed over to the new CEO -- Oompa Loompas and all.
