Dale Begg-Smith: Millionaire, Olympian, Spammer

Heh, our newest Olympic hero has been outed: he made his millions in spam. Even so, I'm happy to claim The Mogul of the Moguls as one of our own for any number of reasons: he's a nerd-athlete, he's an unscupulous entrepreneur whose activites border on the criminal yet he's basically a decent sports-loving guy (is that true-blue Aussie or what?), he started this when he was thirteen, but most of all, because he's someone who will do anything to support his one true passion - skiing.

Yes, Dale Begg-Smith spammed for his sport.

Oh, and he's actually cut back on his spamming activities to concentrate on his sporting career. So if there's slightly less spam around, we can thank his dedication to the snowfields.

Olympic gold medallist, self-made multi-millionaire, and still only 21. He's just made every Top Ten Most Eligible Bachelors List. Except maybe the one on SlashDot.

spammer == asshole. He should be made to give any medals back and stand in a public place at torino beating himslf with a board and chanthing "I am not worthy! I am not worthy!"

PS thanks for your support, I actually missed the blogger meetup this time because Dad was so ill that I went to see him, and I got to hug him and all that, and then thursday - all out for 83... Love that man!
