True story. One of my friends owned a bunch of shares in a penny stock and the company was trying to do some big thing, I don't know what. He got a call from a member of the BoD of that company asking for his approval because he owned so many shares. The BoD was frantically trying to reach him while he was at work. We all think it was a big joke but no one we know has admitted to the joke so we haven't been able to disprove his story.
