    Begging on wall street

    felt this was a good one
    --------------------------

    There are three beggars begging on Wall Street.

    The first beggar wrote "Beggar" on his broken cup. He received $10.00 after one day.

    The next day, the second beggar wrote "Beggar.com" on his cup. After one day, he received hundreds of thousands of dollars and an offer to float an IPO on NASDAQ.

    The following day, the third beggar wrote "e-Beg" on his cup. Microsoft, IBM, and HP sent corporate vice-presidents to talk to him about strategic alliances and offered him free hardware consultancy.

    In addition, it was reported on CNBC that e-Beg uses 95% Oracle technology and that I2 announced the launch of BegTradeMatrix; a b2b industry portal offering supply chain integration in the beggar community.

    Yeah, it still seemed like it was building up to something when it ended. It was funny, though.

    >>1/10 for my incompetency
    Actually, I'd say you're 11/10 for incompetency.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah
