Pudding for frequent flier miles.

Fly the creamy skies. One man’s flash of inspiration (and frantic legwork) translates 12,150 cups of chocolate pudding into 1,215,000 frequent flier miles. Total cost: $2,235 - including an $815 tax write-off to charity. Photo proof here. [via boing boing (via cardhouse)]

I want that guy around when I do my taxes.

Very cool.

I wonder if the guy has lots of sisters and wears a blue suit?

I can't believe this is for real. I just saw Punch Drunk Love last night and thought what a great scheme that is and how I should read the fine print more clearly.

I once saw this guy as a contestant on a cheesy gameshow years ago.

I am looking forward to many more two-year-old "oddly enough" stories on Metafilter's front page.

I'm sorry, what I meant to say was "close to three-year-old".

must agree jjg. between the boingboing and /. link pilfering, these new/old posts are getting weak.

Gotta agree with you, jjg: a Snopes link from boingboing? That's new?

I guess it's a little better than the ubiquitous slashdot/drudge posts, but not by mutch.

I like it. I think it's pretty. Very mutch.

At least Cory admits that it's really old and he must be the last person in the world to hear about the guy. . . . Is it open season on posting to old sites?

I have never heard of this... I'm sure there are alot of others that have never heard of this...

I think the post served its purpose. So what if it was on oddly enough a few YEARS ago... Years on the internet are like an eternity anyway.
