AOL admits 40 percent of subscribers don't even have computers.

Leading internet provider America Online (AOL) has confirmed a stunning statistic leaked by a dissatisfied employee last week, in documents sold to Fox News for an undisclosed sum.

"While we vigorously condemn the illegal theft of internal company documents, we must admit that they are in fact authentic," said a grim-looking Joe Redley, AOL's chief marketing officer. "Further, the facts as stated in the memos recently released to news organizations are in fact true; namely, that it does appear that a sizeable percentage of AOL subscribers do not, in fact, possess computers."

More here at the Watley Review. Amazing article. Check it out.

I knew it, I knew it, I knew it!

I wonder what the Republican vs. Democrat split is for AOL subscribers. (Just 'cause I'm compelled to be political)

He Prisoner, thanks for posting. Did you read the article? It is very funny. It is a fake news story. I don't think that any real news agencies will will pick it up because they didn't read the story, but who knows. I shouldn't underestimate the stupidity of the media.
