A shout out to Ryan Lewis, who was so excited he called my house to tell me that:
U.S. federal regulators suspended trading in 35 companies Thursday in a crackdown on spam e-mail sent by unknown market manipulators who profit from a rise in the share price of thinly traded companies.
No, he's not some kind of weird securities geek - he was excited by the name given to the operation: Operation Spamalot. It's not often this phrase has come out of my mouth, but I would like to shake the hand of the Fed who named that operation!
Oh my god. Somebody called you? ON THE PHONE???

Yeah, I could barely contain my laughter at this one. Too strange.--ryaN

I'm trying to decide if he's saying the story was too strange, or someone calling me on the phone was too strange....
