I looked at the site and found the following:

"What do I do now? I now have hundreds of happy clients on the Dow Dividend Strategy. I collect 1% to 1.5% annually on every account. That's right--people pay me to implement the simple Dogs of the Dow System. And I have some of the most satisified clients in the country (they're beating 93% of all mutual funds), I work fewer hours and I make a contiuous stream of money, year after year."

I would call that scary rather than hilarious, but other parts of the site are funny. I also doubt the validity of the beating 93% of all mutual funds after accounting for his 1% to 1.5% management fee, but h*ll, what is truth in advertising anyway.
