  • I have nothing to contribute to this page, however I thought it was funny that when I searched for "Every 10 Minutes" for information on Pepsi's XBox 360 giveaway sweepstakes this wiki was the first result. I wonder if Pepsi's board had a laugh about this aptly named (and very popular) sweepstakes
  • I bumped into this page while researching an article that I'm writing about Adam Forepaugh. I gave it a pretty good re-writing. I found several sources for the Forepaugh angle, most notably http://www.bartleby.com/66/19/5619.html. Joe 19:44, 11 October 2005 (UTC)

--- Nice work, Joe! It is now an entertaining and interesting article. I'm glad that closer to Wiki's quality standards, so should survive any other attempt at deletion. The phrase is very well known, so it merits an article, and a discussion of the mis-attribution to Barnum. Javaman59 (talk) 03:10, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

This is not a reliable source by Wikipedia standards. I see that someone copy-pasted the whole thing into the article, which is clearly a copyright violation (no authorization to copy) and plagiarism (no source given), so I have removed it. --Macrakis (talk) 00:30, 28 January 2012 (UTC)
