Default "Caution" anouncements

Did you add new CAUTION announcements to the header of the message board?

I just saw this one for the first time:
Quote:
This web site includes graphic dramatic re-enactments of World War II battles.
Reader caution is advised.
I like it!

I am always happy when my cashier is Helen. She's my favorite.

I am always grateful to be reminded that this website is not underwear, and not to put it in my pants. I keep forgetting....

I thought Snopes had debunked the facebook message that he would be starting to charge...

and I haven't made any financial arrangements!!

I thought so too. Until this message came up on the site.

So I guess I will have to pay the maximum rate, or I am stuck here.

It's not new, but if you are unfamiliar with it, then you should be aware, when using the header:
Quote:
WARNING: This page has a polarized header (one side is wider than the other). If the header does not fit fully into your browser, reverse the header. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.

I thought that was what it was supposed to do. Pretty much every time I see that one my cashier was Emily.

I have never seen it say my real name, so I don't think that's how it is supposed to work.

Even if it were able to pull from a field, "first name" isn't a field, is it?

ETA: And now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure I've seen "Emily," too.

In that case I probably only notice it when it says "Emily".

If someone already won the jackpot, why are we still playing?

My cashier is either Emily or Helen. Usually Helen.
