Should they say
They were stuck behind two Lexi doing 20 under the speed limit for no reason all the way down Mopac.
Or is it
They were stuck behind two Lexusees doing 20 under the speed limit for no reason all the way down Mopac.
They wonder what would happen if they were to draw a political cartoon wherein Mohammed were depicted wearing a turban shaped like a bunch of idiots burning down an embassy.
UK spammer jailed. 6 Years. Those Brits — always ahead of the curve!
Why would anyone name a soup and salad shop “obese“?

Let’s see — anonymous business proposal through korean hotmail, from Akami/France telecom space. The second word is “wanna”. All specifics covered. They are sure their lawyers would jump right on this, and still find no holes!
OK, seriously. They have a response:
They are most honored and delighted with your proposal. They will happily write down the exact phrase “they.com” on a postcard and send it to you — anywhere in the world, in exchange for either $10,000 or 10,000 male deer. If you pay cash, they have a special 3-for-2 offer! They will send you three identical postcards — all with the world-famous phrase
they.comwritten on it for the one-time-only, incredibly low price of $20,000.*
*Disclaimer: offer not valid in reality. Anyone bringing deer or deer carcasses to they will be ejected from reality.
This universe shipped by weight, not by volume. Some expansion of the contents may have occurred during shipment.
So, the primary hard disk of they.com died.
Actually, from a sysadmin point of view, only the secondary disk died (/home). So, all user data was lost, but all the configuration files (/etc) are intact.
Everyone else believes the primary disk died. I’ll leave the evil sysadmin grin to your imagination…
Oh, and most of our spam databases survived, as well.
Anyone know how everyone’s least favorite Slidell, LA spammer fared?
For what it is worth, they are celebrating their 20th anniversary by installing a new hard drive…
