LOL! This just cracked me up!

Businesses can't offer review incentives, but Google offers FREE DRINKS if you leave 5 Reviews!

Hi Darren, ya I remember something similar but don't remember the specific.
Just thought this one was funny. Especially the FREE DRINK as the incentive! :p

How the heck did you find that nugget? That's just hilarious. Coming from Washington D.C., I wouldn't expect anything less. Hypocrisy rules there;)
