Support The Economy: Capitalism at it's best. While I doubt it will generate much income, I wish I'd thought of it.

I would rather my money go to world domination instead ... via PayPal, of course.

Ugh, I got this spammed to my inbox. Spammers shouldn't get so much attention.

That said, it was somewhat funny in the way that bums with "Spare Change For Beer" signs are funny. I give them more smiles than change.

I was spammed as well - though I normally delete without compunction, something about the message caused me to check it out.

I wonder if they'll recoup whatever costs they had for the mailing list.

I'd be interested in knowing if he's made any money yet

The spam (which I didn't get, at least not yet) causes me to dismiss this out of hand. Minus the spam, it would have been funny. Spam is evil.

Bums asking for change for beer, OTOH, always get a few coins from me. I feel their pain. :-)

I was spammed at THREE addresses. I'm afraid I'm far more irritated than wealthy, so I will simply be supporting the economy buying my groceries.

Rats. I wasn't spammed with it. Clever monkey, isn't he, coming up with this idea? As aladfar said, wish I had thought of it first. His promise not to use any donated to procure Spears-pix is heartening, but his mere mention of such pix gives me pause. Aw, what the hey -- I'll send a buck or two.

Bums asking for change for beer from me will often get beer. Gave one a case over the holidays last year. He tried to give me money from his bucket! Weird.
