Some are more truth than libelous

Libelous claims about large corporations Fedex licks each package. Gateway boxes are made from real cowhide. And Victoria has another secret.

I was having a really bad day, and the little doodles on this site made me very happy. Thanks for posting it.

Brilliant.

I enjoyed it. Without the drawings, it wouldn't have been worth it, though.

You know, I lick the envelope on every single letter I send. What kinds of lawsuits could idiots amuse me with?

Maddox's illustrations are better.

Samsung phones can be used as boomerangs.

The one that's had me giggling all day is the one for MasterLock. FREAKIN' NERDS!

This reminds me of spamusement, which I haven't read in awhile. I'll have to catch up on that.

This is good.

I also vote that this is good.

Yeah, they'd be libelous claims about large corporations, except for one thing... THEY'RE ALL TRUE!!!!!

None of the people who post on Metafilter actually exist. Including you.

Those silly little combo-dial MasterLocks are ridiculously easy to "hack" and open - and not just with a hammer.

Err, not that I would know anything about that.

4 links to a single (weak) blog?

Very amusing, thanks wannabehippie. I'm reminded of the Yes Men for some reason. They prank corporate meetings, their most famous stunt being to announce that Dow Chemicals would compensate all the Bhopal victims which was reported by BBC as a true announcement. I'd vaguely thought about an FPP on them.

I work for Fedex and I just want to say that I'm really glad that we don't lick each package. My tongue would get so tired!

A nice sense of the absurd and really very funny. Especially compared to the insert esoteric but essentially uninteresting subject here sites and blogs that make up so many FPPs. For example, cupcakes: great - who really gives a toss and it's not even funny? Also, if I see another example of photosharing technology or something "clever" done with Google Earth, I'm going to frickin' puke.

I too agree that this is good. It made me laugh in its absurdity.

Funny concept but the jokes are dull.

Man, you diabetics never miss a chance to run your jackboots over the sweetness, do you? "Master race" indeed: what kind of "master race' (note the quotes) needs three shots of insulin a day? Hmmmm?

GO BACK TO AUSTRALIA.
