The Biggest 419

From: Minister of the Treasury Paulson

Dear American:

I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship with a transfer of funds of great magnitude. I am Ministry of the Treasury of the Republic of America. My country has had crisis that has caused the need for large transfer of funds of 800 billion dollars US. If you would assist me in this transfer, it would be most profitable to you.

I am working with Mr. Phil Gram, lobbyist for UBS, who will be my replacement as Ministry of the Treasury in January. As a Senator, you may know him as the leader of the American banking deregulation movement in the 1990s. This transactin is 100% safe.

This is a matter of great urgency. We need a blank check. We need the funds as quickly as possible. We cannot directly transfer thesefunds in the names of our close friends because we are constantly under surveillance. My family lawyer advised me that I should look for a reliable and trustworthy person who will act as a next of kin so the funds can be transferred.

Please reply with all of your bank account, IRA and college fund account numbers and those of your children and grandchildren to wallstreetbailout@treasury.gov so that we may transfer your commission for this transaction. After I receive that information, I will respond with detailed information about safeguards that will be used to protect the funds.

Yours Faithfully

Minister of Treasury Paulson

Talk Like A Pirate Day

Avast ye swabs, a reminder tomorrow be International Talk Like A Pirate Day.



Seinfeld Ads Bomb

BREATHE A SIGH OF RELIEF everyone, Microsoft is expected to announce that it will be suspending its excrutiating ad campaign starring King of the Voles (Retd) Bill Gates and comedy has-been Jerry Seinfeld.

Microsoft clearly can’t hack the negative reaction it’s received as a comeuppance for the misinformed idea that this would actually work.

According to Valleywag, Seinfeld's agent says this was always intended to be just an introduction for the overall campaign – well we guess he'd say just about anything for his cut of the $10m fee.


Should go down as one of the great blunders in advertising.
What NOT to do!
