The wording is awkward and does not follow the AP style guide. No one would fall for this.

I smell cover-up.

Never mind, it was just my cat farting.
 
2013-04-23 01:25:46 PM  
at this point, if that even were to happen, my reaction would be meh and choose a new tab.  If it were any other week, they'd probably get the response they were looking for.

Whoever is responsible for the hacking is a farking moron.  I don't think I've run to a TV that fast in my life.
 
2013-04-23 01:32:10 PM  
It was probably the same people who did it to Sepp Blatter and the FIFA World Cup account yesterday, the Syrian Electronic Army. While it was funny (yesterday), I'm pretty sure they're the bad guys.
 
2013-04-23 01:32:23 PM

Proverb. a bad workman always blames his tools. It is not the tools we use which make us good, but rather how we employ them.

Please stop that, thank you.

Follow the money...

Remember that one of the copycat Tylenol scares was intended to tank the J&J stock price.  Of course the idiot who did it got his timing wrong, and his options had already expired.

Probably?  Sheeeeet, the only question is whether they go to jail for a really long time, or a really, really REALLY long time.
