The following is from http://www.snopes2.com/inboxer/stooopid/cleaning.htm

I suggest you check this site in the future before forwarding hoaxes.

Murry,

If I'd sent the "Amazon and Anti-Semitism" or "Rat Droppings" or "Hewlett-Packard/Gateway Merge - Free Computers" scams, I could understand your reaction. I believe that the folks here on the AAPL Board are sophisticated enough to recognize that it was humor. Check the date. Check the guy's name.

It's April Fools Day tomorrow! Lighten up!
