I could nine words. One of them is "TRUE". That means that about 11.1% of that sentence is "TRUE".

However, there are 31 letters in that sentence, and four of them are in the word "TRUE". So as percentage of letters, and not words, we would say about 12.9% of that sentence is "TRUE".

However, if we're counting all of the T's R's, U's and E's separately, then we're counting 11 of the 31 letters. So then we'd say that about 35.5% of that sentence is "TRUE".

Well, come on now - it's obviously false. Just look at the pixellation around the moose. Further, the shadows around the snowblower go in the opposite direction to those around the chicken. It's a dead giveaway. And don't get me started about the zucchini.

Comment: I just received an e-mail from a trusted friend on my e-mail list
about a virus that was aired and apparently investigated by Snopes in
April 2010 (I checked the date and your comments on it). I also note that
recently as Monday, Nov 7, 2011 there are further analyses by Snopes about
this same virus. Is there a resurgence of this event and has there been
any known fixes for it?

Comment: I can find nothing that references what I heard. I just wanted
to see if there was any truth to it.
