    I hate to throw a wte banktle on this, but I’ve seen it before — and I’ve seen it debunked before, as well. Basically the only phrase that really reads easily like that is the one you posted — which has been forwarded around the webernet for aeons. I didn’t find anything on about it, but I’m sure a Google search would turn up something …

    I do have some good news though: Bill Gates will pay you money for forwarding this e-mail … 😉
