Great Moments in Press Release Idiocy

I get a fair number of press releases in my inbox, most of which I promptly ignore. (Hey, gambling site that's e-mailing me daily, that means you. Stop.) But there was one today that seemed interesting. And not just because it asked me to "Please share this exciting news with your readers as many will probably be headed to the game this weekend!"

Really? Carolina fans are headed to the game? How come nobody told me? I totally would have tried to cadge a ride.

Anyway the exciting news is that Natrone Means will be fielding questions outside the stadiumfrom 5:30 to 6:30 in the Georgia World Congress Center, Building C, as part of an insurance-sponsored day of festivities prior to the game.

But wait! At the bottom of the e-mail, there's this:

The information in this e-mail, and any attachment therein, is confidential and for use by the addressee only. If you are not the intended recipient, please return the e-mail to the sender and delete it from your computer. Although the Company attempts to sweep e-mail and attachments for viruses, it does not guarantee that either are virus-free and accepts no liability for any damage sustained as a result of viruses.

So I am putting myself at grave legal risk to bring you this press release. That they want me to share. But don't, because it's for me only. I'm so confused.
