Hey Treowth,

Of all the parodies written about Rambus over the years, this is tops. Hahaha!

The Options Restating Project (b) and the Licensing (i) placement tests are just plain funny. The best humor always involves some truth. I'm still chuckling.

Thanks for the laugh.

Thanks Threejack.

It has been written before:

1) Laughter is the best medicine.

2) Better to laugh than cry.

I am looking forward to the annual shareholder meeting . . .
