A little humor to ease the pain…
Happy GDPR Day! Email inboxes everywhere rejoice as “the silence of the spam” begins today (May 25, 2018) thanks to the new EU data privacy law, known by the acronym GDPR. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, it’s fair to say that the majority of us have been on the receiving end of a GDPR compliance email within the last week.
While the consequences of non-compliance are no laughing matter, the entire online world has been reacting with humor over the mounds of GDPR messages they’ve been receiving. To celebrate GDPR deadline day, which conveniently coincides with National Wine Day in the US, we’ve poured a fresh glass of funny and collected some of our favorite laughs from GDPR Day.

How we all feel after today…
What do you mean the fortune isn’t real?
Just received an email from a wealthy Nigerian Prince.
He told me that he doesn’t have any fortune to share with me at the moment but he would appreciate if I could let him know before May 25th if I wish to continue receiving emails….#GDPR
