[AP, San Francisco Reuters 9928IU9]

San Francisco, California::: Today, Sun Microsystems announced that
Jonathan Schwartz, CEO and President of the company, has taken a bath.

It was reported that Schwartz [aka "Ponytail"] was on a non-bathing
binge until the company's free downloads exceeded 3.5 billion. Schwartz
stated "I'm sort of like Ghandi - you know - that guy that didn't eat
anything until he got more money". Schwartz contined "I don't usually
bathe a whole lot anyway, so I thought it would be a good gesture. I
promised not to bathe until our lousy customers downloaded our free
software exceeding 3.5 billion separate downloads"

Inside sources reported that Schwartz took a bath last night, prompted
by IBM's refusal to meet with him in person regarding the rumored
leveraged takeover. An IBM representative who asked to remain anonymous
stated "We couldn't even stand to be in the same room with the guy he
stunk so bad. I don't think he's brushed his teeth since January
either". He continued "We told him take a bath and we'll talk - but not
until he cleaned up"

Sources close to Schwartz claims he ordered management to simply
manipulate the download numbers so he could save face. Later the manager
was fired per policy. 

In an unrelated announcement, Sun announced today that they have given
away 550 trillion free downloads since last Monday, and this will
stimulate the core business model of Sun's free products.

too, whereas GNU cannot.)
