That video of the ball girl catching the foul ball, three posts down? Not cool after all. It's fake -- just a Gatorade commercial.

Dang commercial-making video-faker people got me again. Last year I believed a video showing a whale breaching very near a kayak, or something like that. Ridiculous, in retrospect.

I have to stop writing this post now. I just got an email from someone in Nigeria who needs me to hold $15M in my bank account for her. So I'm off to make the arrangements. Don't forget to boycott Exxon-Mobil, so that they'll lower the price of gas! Send this to as many people as possible and something cool will happen! You'll see!



  1. This made me laugh. Because, I too get the e-mails that say,

    Dear Madame,
    Please regarde this as our happy atempt to notify you of our intention to deposit 16 million dollars in your account as accorded by Signor Phillipe in his testament. If you will simply send us the number of your account that you would like these funds placed into, all will be well,
    Master Jacques Durlain.

    Uh huh.

  3. Actually, you should boycott Exxon because they refuse to add sexual orientation and gender identity to their non-discrimination policy. In fact, when they merged with Mobil, they ended Mobil's domestic partnership benefits.

  4. ROTFLOL!!!! very funny. no worries tho - if it made it to snopes, a number of people have been caught up by it - as long as you are not packing your bags for nigeria.
