Praise from the Guardian
There was a very nice blurb in today's issue of The Guardian about the Museum of Hoaxes. Does this mean I can now tell my mother that I'm famous?

Dude, you're not just famous, you're world famous (the Guardian is a UK newspaper).
This should prove to your parents you haven't been wasting your time.
Oh, and Congratulations!

No. You are not famous. (We don't want this going to his head, now do we people). You can tell your mom that you are, just to make her happy.

And, REALLY, where is the article on WMDs in Iraq? This has to be the greatest hoax of the millennium.

Dude, you're a celebrity!

I've got this great investment opportunity for you and all your friends. It's sort of a "gift exchange" kinda thing. You'll love it!

cool smirk

The WMDs in Iraq article is missing, just like the WMDs themselves. Somehow it seems appropriate.

Though on second thought, maybe I should have a link to it that just leads to a '404 WMDs not found' page.

Brenda, Do you mean intimidated? Does this mean Alex has a PhD? Always knew there was something to this guy! Congrats on the write-up, Alex.

No, I don't have a PhD. I'm what's known as ABD: All But Dissertation. I completed all the requirements for the PhD except for the dissertation itself.

Alex; Thanks for the personal revelations. Your fans will be ecstatic!(and that includes me). I'm familiar with "educationus interruptis". Seems I remember a few events like two marriages, three children and two careers that somehow got in the way of my original plans for independent collegiate success. But,what the F--?
Life worked out, anyway; so-so, as usual. Best Wishes-
