"Cool! I can watch the latest episode of 24 live on my phone now!"

"Ooo... Britney! Text me, baby!"

"Ooo... Britney! Want to say hello to my little friend!"

"I love cowboy movies. Ooooooooo... klahomo where the wind goes rushing through my chaps!"

"I just love the way the University of Illinois honors the Illini Indians with their mascot."

"Hello, Mr. Austin? Why yes, Bill and I are thinking of featuring your blog in our new blog plugin for the next upgrade of IE."

And the #1 caption:
"Awesome! I picked up the Illini's first round NCAA Tournament game!"

Oh, and sorry, I don't have any extra cash this month for a bribe.

Bill says we can get a deal on ports for less than 5 billion....and the numbers just seem to keep dropping. Guess we're going to diversify the company after all.
