Apparently, Disney owns I due to the large number of porn site EULAs with an "I disagree" link leading to disney.com!

Who owns the decabet? I say Dan Akroyd does. Google says the following organizations own the letters of the decabet: ABCD, EF, GHI, LMNO, and the "trash letters."

Thanks, Grimey! I didn't know about that SNL site, which has archived a lot of memories from my childhood. I loved that decibet bit, and can still remember word-for-word a lot of those 1975 skits. But no, I don't know where my keys are right now.
