I thought it was "Step on the crack, you'll get shot in the back". Or have I been watching too much TV?

I just opened my umbrella inside and nothing AHHHHHHHHHHH!

I've always believed that bad luck would be avoided by having people throw large sums of money at me.
Please?

I'm gonna miss MikeyVA.

when i think of all the tragic deaths i died by not forwarding chain letters. . . .

This is like something from the Onion or the Weekly World News. The University of Chicago Booth School of Business is one of the most prestigious business schools in the country. How they could attach their name to this nonsense is beyond me.

I'd post a reply, but the Publisher's Clearinghouse Prize Patrol is due to pull up into my driveway any time now, so I'd best get ready. See you all on the national news.

(And Ed McMahon looks really, really bad!)
