    LOL!

    When I started out in IM I was almost forced to move out of my house and had to buy a mobile home :p

    And that is true

    It's funny to see this "story" wiggle its way around various places.

    It's not even funny, just looks like a spin story for the company selling the awful diet advice.

    I think its probably just a clickbank affiliate - Not the diet company.

    Nt worth giving this story without any merit any free press right?

    Yeah, surprised how well it worked too. The second I saw that picture I thought there was something going on.

    ...but if the idea was real and the guy really did hand out thousands of flyers I wonder how much he would have made?

    Had a guy actually done all this, then the chances are it would still need to be a staged photograph, as he would no longer be on the streets. A picture of a man in normal clothes with a handful of cash would have been pretty pointless!
