For a "real world" example that made it to print (didn't get culled by a
stuffy old editor), do an archive search of this list for "Don't Touch
This". It was my attempt at humor in a BBS (then later a website) that I
used to run for Ericsson in the mid-1990s, and that I resurrected in my
WebHelp for my current employer's products a few years ago.

Reviews from customers were generally positive. (I think some of them
peed their pants.) We had customers from all over the world.
