There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.

When asked to define "great" he said, "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!"

He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.

Funny writer story and hilarious headlines. I wonder if they do some of those on purpose just to entice us to read the stories--if not you really have to wonder about that editor.
