Dr. Bryan McDonald—Microsoft has set out and sucessfully organised a Sweepstakes

Ha! Never heard of a Microsoft Sweepstakes. Maybe that's because I don't follow the market enough?! Anyway, this one, I thought was funny because it appeared as all underlined. They actually used <STRONG> all over the place which in general appears bold in a browser. Still. Everything in bold. Imagine that! 8-)

Okay... so it's all in bold, but look at it closer. That's in the U.K.!? And he has an email address... in the U.K. alright! But look at that!!! That's at Yahoo! Maybe the bad guy should learn that Microsoft owns microsoft.com and that they use it for their emails. Plus, they own hotmail, not Yahoo!. 8-) Really too funny!
