    Obama Email Submit Exposed in Pictures 

    Shady email submit using Obama’s face, exposed for all to see page-by-page – Because I’m a dick, and I hate it when I don’t think of scammy stuff before someone else does.

    I was just browsing a website when this window appeared. Mr. President wants to talk to me!

    Obama just wanted some input on his campaign

    He asked me about Donald Trump

    ... and Sarah Palin

    ... and Ron Paul. I was sure he would put this information to good use.

    Obama kept his word and let me select my prize. My three very valuable minutes were turned into a $500+ electronic gadget. Gotta love the stimulus.

    I chose the iPhone! So excited to get my prize!

    Obama wanted to know my e-mail address. How else is he going to ship my goodies? By e-mail, of course!

    After I gave him my e-mail, I was surprised he STILL had more questions for me.

    He started getting really personal with the questions. I guess he might want to invite me for dinner. Or maybe an extra-special prize! Or a mortgage rebate!

    Maybe he was going to offer me a job... Or sucker me into a payday loan?

     

     

     

    I thought he would give me a scholarship!

    Or a new checking account!

    Then he asked me about my credit score. I've got no clue, maybe he can send it to me.

    Jesus Christ how many question does the president have?

    Finally I get to the last question, again... I can't wait for my iPhone! I know Obama won't let me down - He's the president of the USA!

     

     

     

    What the hell, mofo!? Now he says I need to complete two "offers" to get my gift. What kind of gift is this? I don't understand why it says on the top right that I selected the Dell computer instead of the iPhone - whatever, I also need a new computer!

    I thought ok, I just buy two crappy things and get my prize, so I got some teeth whiteners and Dr. Seuss books for the kids. Couldn't wait to get my stuff. Then this son of a bitch tells me I need to complete NINE more offers. Fine, I'll buy myself nine more useless things...

    Ah! finally, after I bought eleven pieces of shit, I get some bonus offers right before my prize. I'm just gonna skip these bonuses and head for my prize... So I'll click the bottom link...

    What the fuck now? Where is my prize? This lady is talking to me about credit cards. Lady, tell me about my prize, not credit cards god dammit!

    Maybe Obama is just going to send me an e-mail asking me for my shipping address for the prize... Lets check my inbox. ... Strange, I don't remember signing up for financial aid, scholarships, government grants, credit reports or auction places. Oh well.. I'll just wait, maybe Obama is going to call me!

    Technorati’s Twisted Sense of Humor 

    I have an RSS feed that uses a Google query for my name… And no, my real name is not “Slave”. Every day I get random stuff from Technorati in that feed. I don’t quite get it – It seems that Google is picking up my name as part of the post tags! My name is nowhere to be found when I get to the article, however… In this case that’s a real relief.

    I couldn’t resist an entry with my name in the tags, titled “Scareware Scumbags Facing Fraud Charges” – For a moment my heart stopped – I thought they found me!

    Its about a $100M scareware fraud… I love how the article ends…

    Unfortunately, the two guys that ran the main operation, Bjorn Sundin and Shaileshkuma Jain, live in the Ukraine and Sweden respectively. In really nice houses. Where they’ll probably be able to hole up watching movies and snorting coke off of hookers’ special places until they die.

    The article does highlight how you have to think globally in everything you do… No matter how legit it is.
