Don’t you just love the internet, www, email, and blogging, how did we ever
manage to stay in touch with others before all this cyberspace technology.
Sure there has been a postal service almost forever, there have been
telephones, remember when they all relied on a landline, BC, (before cells.)
But did we ever use these means of communication like we now use
The amount of stuff that flies through the airwaves now would surely
amaze our forebears, or even ourselves some 10/20 years ago.
Leave out Christmas and Birthday greetings I used to get maybe 20
personal letters and 100 bills and business letters per year, I still get the
bills, sadly, but instead of the other “mail” I now get 20/30 electronic
contacts per day,
I don’t believe I have suddenly become so much more popular, it seems
there is just so much stuff floating around “out there” that some just falls
into our system each day, perhaps it’s too heavy a load to stay circulating
so it drops in on us whether we want it or not.
Thank you for your emails
I wish to express my thanks to all those who forwarded such informative
e-mails, for instance, the one about rats in the glue on envelopes because I
now have to use a wet towel for every envelope that needs sealing.
Also, I scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason. I want to
thank all of you who have taken the time and trouble to send me your
chain letters over the past 12 months.
You have made me feel safe, secure, blessed, and wealthy. Because of your
concern I no longer drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains.
I no longer drink Pepsi or Dr Pepper , since the people who make these
products are atheists who refuse to put "Under God" on their cans.
I no longer use Saran wrap in the microwave because it causes cancer.
I no longer check the coin return on pay phones because I could be
pricked with a needle infected with AIDS.
I no longer use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a
water buffalo on a hot day.
I no longer go to shopping malls because someone will drug me with a
perfume sample and rob me I no longer receive packages from UPS
or FedEx since they are actually Al Qaeda in disguise.
I no longer shop at Target since they are French and don't support our
American troops or the Salvation Army.
I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a
number for which I will get a phone bill with calls to
I no longer eat KFC because their chickens are actually horrible mutant
freaks with no eyes or feathers.
I no longer date the opposite sex because they will take my kidneys and
leave me taking a nap in a bathtub full of blood.
I no longer have any sneakers -- but that will change once I receive my
free replacement pair from Nike.
I no longer buy expensive cookies from Neiman Marcus since I now have
I no longer worry about my soul because I have 363,214 angels looking
out for me and St. Theresa's novena has granted my every wish.
Thanks to you, I have learned that God only answers my prayers if I
forward an e-mail to seven of my friends and make a wish within five
I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl who is about
to die in the hospital (for the 1,387,258th time).
I no longer have any money at all, but that will change once I receive
the $15,000 that Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating
in their special e-mail program.
Yes, I want to thank you so much for looking out for me that I will now
return the favor!
If you don't send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people in the next 70
minutes, a large dove with diarrhea will land on your head at
(CST) this afternoon, and the fleas from 12 camels will infest your back,
causing you to grow a hairy hump. I know this will occur because it
actually happened to a friend of my next door neighbor's
ex-mother-in-law's second husband's cousin's beautician!
