    This is a cool story being passed around the internet. You can view the whole thing, straight from the horse's mouth (including pictures) here.

    Anyway, here's the rundown.

    Guys sells Powerbook G4 on EBay, and some guy in Britain buys for $2000. Well, the guy in Britain is obviously trying to scam as he says he has the money set aside, but won't actually pay until he recieves the item. After numerous, angry volleys, he gives in...kinda. He knows it's a scam, so he decides to scam the scammer using an invention known as the "P-P-P-Powerbook."

    He took an ordinary binder and drew the Apple logo on the front cover, along with the word "P-P-P-Powerbook." On the inside, he drew a tastefully humerous Mac OS X desktop, with such gems as the internet quickbar icon being labelled "haxor the world" (it's a picture of the Earth). On the other inside panel, he glued a bunch of keys on in the vague shape of a keyboard. "SPACE" was written on the spacebar he used and on the "Windows" key, the Windows logo was crossed out and an Apple logo drawn next to it. On the back, he drew fake ports on the back labelled things like "firewire," "who knows!" and "circle." He then shipped this concoction to the scammer in the UK. The real jewel is that the scammer spent $200 on a 10% import tax, since he declared the item's value to be $2000.
