WOW – Now This is An Advertising Scam!
I did it. I fell for an advertising bamboozle on-line!
While checking my Yahoo mail tonight and I saw a link to a story about the happiest cities in the world. As a happy go lucky guy, I click to see where all the other happy people are – they’re certainly not an abundance of them in the DC area (but I guess it’s all relative, eh?).
While browsing a few of the happiest cities something else catches my eye – it appears to be a link to a story about Acai Berries and it says:

Unbelievable. It’s written by a “staff writer”, raves about the benefits of the berries and even has comments at the bottom of the page (but the comments are closed).
