Default Dude, you're going to jail!

The actor who plays the appeallingly goofy Dell 'dude' was arrested for possession of marijuana.

Or on another page the headlines were:

Dude! You are getting a CELL!

lol, Kathy, my husband came up with the same line when I told him about the news story.

I wonder if this little adventure will end the Dell Guy's career. The character was alternately annoying and adorable.

And the commercials were quite profitable for him I heard, it seems like they were phasing him out anyway. I don't like the interns.

He was wearing a tuxedo jacket and a kilt when he was arrested. Now that's just confusing.


Also, his Dell site now forwards to another page with picture of the interns on it. http://www.dell.com/us/en/gen/corpor...11-aus-000.htm

Geeze, OC...you won't get a userid for the NYT but you read the Daily News online which runs Gator pop-ups?

As for the tuxedo jacket and kilt...that's standard dress for Robbie Burns' memorial birthday dinners. Perhaps poor Curtis was just delirious after a decadent dinner of haggis and single malt.

I only found the article through Google News search.

I do not read the Daily News or NY Post.

Sorry I judged you wrongly OC. (Bad Google!)

Here's some info on Robbie Burns' suppers. And FWIW, 'neeps' are turnips.

Scots w'hae!

hahaha

Rhea has a very bright future as a SEO pro

Why?

Run this:

Code:
http://www.google.com/search?q="Dude%20you're%20going%20to%20jail!"%20info&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&start=20&sa=N
Position 3 and 4 examine the Cached page which google holds.

Note: The above url is to complex for vB code so you will have to copy and paste.

Go fill your Forums with keyword rich Topic Titles - hahahah

Steve, once again I'm baffled. I checked Google and can't figure out why the third and fourth cached pages are significant. :sobbing: Please explain in small words and short sentences.

As for the Dell interns...they're alternately annoying and annoying.

Google loves me, this I know
'Cause my tracker tells me so.

Okay, I figured it out.

Apparently when Steve posted about Google this GV thread was ranked 3rd/4th in Google's index for, "Dude you're going to jail." I just checked and GV is now on the fourth page of listings.

Well it must have slipped from that ranking real quick because I checked it soon after Steve posted
