I had to laugh.  One of our on-line demos for Midas shows how you can send HTML mail (click here to try it), so I have occasionally worried that somebody might hijack the demo to send offensive messages or pictures "from Genii Software".  Because of this, I check the messages if they are different than the standard message, just to know if I need to let somebody know a message was not from us.
 
Today, I found my first "offensive" picture.  Well, it might not be offensive to some, but I live in Cleveland, Ohio, and the big OSU-Michigan game takes place tomorrow.  I am not quite sure whether this was someone showing team spirit (for the wrong team) or simply demonstrating the power of Midas to colleagues, but I hope they don't mind my sharing this picture.
 
 
 
I am not much of a football fan, but I feel it is my duty to point out that Michigan doesn't stand a chance.

While I didn't actually watch the game, I have it on good authority and the evidence of the general sense of mourning around here that Michigan upset OSU and dstroyed their chances of a national title. Rats!
