I get it. A play on the "Fortune 500(tm)". Very obscure, but good!

I don't get it. Isn't it supposed to be Fortune 500 companies?

I don't get it... I wish I could... an explanation would be helpful (maybe as part of your answer)

I'm confused. I've never heard of that before. Please explain.

There are a lot more than 500 fortune companies, the "Fortune 500" is a specific list of the top 500 fortune companies in terms of revenue, compiled by Fortune magazine. There's also the "Fortune 1000".

Any corporation that makes its revenue publicly available is a "fortune company". In other words, this is a rather poor teaser.
