IE Security Warning (Author: Unknown)
When I clicked an link in an email from a friend of mine, it took me to a
website that had streaming media content. It automatically started a
download of the appropriate plugin for viewing. After reading the warning
box, I fell off my chair laughing. The box automatically fills in the
appropriate corporate name and links, etc. The result is truly one of the
funniest things I have ever seen. I still have the message up on my
screen, and I will type it here for you:

Needless to say, I just pressed "Cancel".
