[humorix] Humorix Announces Faux Dot Com Service



Humorix Announces Faux Dot Com Service
Press Release -- For Immediate Release
October 14, 1999

HUMORIX WORLD HEADQUARTERS -- /HypeNewsWire/ -- In an
effort to leverage its burgeoning portal website to gain
entry into the so-called "Astroturf Consulting" market,
Humorix World Domination, Inc. (NASDAQ: FAUX) announced
today a new subsidiary company called Faux Dot Com.  The
primary service of Faux Dot Com is FauxFoo(tm), in which
sponsors can submit articles that will be presented on the
Faux portal website as unbiased market research reports
from the prestigious Faux consulting labs.

"FauxFoo represents the first competitive challenge to the
GartnerGroup in the Astroturf Consulting market.  Up until
now, Gartner has had a monopoly on regurgitating[1]
Microsoft press releases and presenting them as
independent, unbiased reports from Gartner's research
department," James Baughn, founder of Humorix said.

The power of the patent-pending FauxFoo(tm) system is
demonstrated in the following "independent" report
published today on the Faux Dot Com portal website:

LINUX BETTER THAN SLICED BREAD*

While the Windows family has some potential for growth, we
feel that Linux will achieve World Acceptance by 2004.

Core Topic: Hardware & Operating Systems:
Client-Operating-System Technologies  Key Issues: How will
IBM, Microsoft, Novell, and Apple respond to Linux's vastly
superior qualities?  How will the technology and markets
for client operating systems evolve during the next five
years? 

The concept of slided bread revolutionized the bakery
industry. In many ways, Linux represents a similar
revolution of the operating system market.

It is the opinion of Humorix/Faux Dot Com Labs that Linux
is simply better.  Period.  For instance, our research
indicates that Linux usage improves health and quality of
life for users. Headaches go away.  Carpal tunnel injuries
heal.  Allergic reactions aren't as bad.  Eyesight
improves.

Our research also indicates that productivity for companies
that migrate from Windows to Linux can increase by as much
as 5100% over a two month span.  Downtime is reduced by
34.5%. Employee sick days decrease by 29%.  Karma increases
by 44.6%.

Bottom Line: Some wackos might claim that Linux is the
"hype du jour", but informed people know better.  Windows
might continue to appeal to MCSEs and Microsoft stock
holders, but Linux, as it matures, will always appeal to a
much broader audience simply because it's better.
