EBay, as the legend goes, became a billion-dollar global powerhouse after beginning its
life as a place where Pierre Omidyar's wife could sell and buy Pez dispensers. It's a
great story. And, as you no doubt know by now, it's not true. It was the fabrication of
a public relations whiz who won an award for spreading the story. But is there really
any harm in bending the truth into a good yarn, especially if it's the kind of
rags-to-riches success story everyone wants to hear?

What do you think of politically inspired Internet memes?
They tend to be brutally honest about their targets.
They're usually cheap shots based on lies.
They're often stupid but amusing.
They can have a dangerous influence on uninformed people.
They don't impress me one way or the other.
