Has the Burns Flat News gone rogue?
How can something that originates in a one traffic light town in western Oklahoma impact people on the other side of the world?
There are hundreds of thousands of scams in our world today. Most are pretty obvious to the person who understands that something that looks too good to be true probably is.
You have probably received an email from a prince with millions of dollars that he can’t get to the United States without help from you and your credit card number. This one is easy. Either delete it or forward it to the FBI.
Others are more sophisticated but usually end up asking for your personal information or a credit card number. Leave these alone.
But every once in a while—in a long while—something comes along that is actually too good to be true.
Our salvation given as a free gift from God in the form of Jesus Christ for one, and one less magnificent but surely one that you can be involved in, buying a goat and two chickens by just clicking on this article.
How can this be?
After about 100,000 clicks the ad revenue generated by just clicking on the page will be enough to buy a goat and two chickens via World Vision.
Is this a scam?
No. With that many page views plenty of sponsoring advertisers will have the readers looking at pages containing not only this content but their ads as well. The pittance allocated for the author of the content gradually accrues. After enough page views, there is money to buy a goat and two chickens for a family or village in Africa.
Yes, there are other locations and other purchase possibilities but I like buying a goat and two chickens. [Read why]
This costs you nothing but a click and a forward. The challenge is that this will take a lot of forwards. You can’t just click on the article a hundred times. It only registers once for any unique URL and this is not an attempt to scam advertisers. As you read this article, you will either have to read or ignore the ads to buy a Dell Computer, lose 50 pounds, upgrade your phone service to a 7G network, or other such offerings as may be posted form time to time. The ads are generally context sensitive and so far none have proved offensive.
By reading this article, you have moved us a little closer to buying a goat and two chickens. By forwarding or sharing the link to it, you make it possible to get there more quickly.
How can you check the progress?
An article will be published for each set of a goat and two chickens purchased. I don’t know if this will take a day, a year, or more; but it is fun to be a part of something so unpredictable; and it is just outright fun to buy a goat and two chickens.
Click here to be counted.
Thanks for the click. Are you up for the forward?
