From Jonathan: An oldie but goodie scam on media…


Aspiring young actress auditions and gets selected by The Chive comedy site to pretend to quit her job via photos of messages on a dry erase board which she supposedly emails to all her co-workers at 4:30 a.m. blasting her sexist, dumbass boss in August of 2010. The story goes viral by the time the Internet wakes up.
