    HP is running an Ad, and I'm quoted in it!
    I feel special.

    The ads all over the major sites like Cnn. NY times, getting a crap load of traffic.

    Oops, you're missing an apostrophe (ad's vs. ads). Hey wait! I know where it went -- you left it lying around in the ad!

    "With it's elegant design it will fit in any home with any decor"

    Technically though... if my house was inelegant, it wouldn't fit my decor now would it??!! WOULD IT!??!!

    Nice mention.

    Gratz Mike. That's awesome. Here's to big traffic and big checks.

    The grammar error, since it was passed through, makes it a classic

    Chet,

    Now you have p.m.off!

    I was going to quote that same line to say:

    Dam, HP quoted you for that simple line with just 63 characters on it?
    I think I am going to have to shorten my products titles!
    But now, I see that the elegant design may not be a good fit, for some of our ugly houses.

    Way to go! You must be thrilled to be associated with such a great ad campaign.

    Hope you and HP (they have been good to us) make a killing.
