A little levity

Why do people think they can send me stolen pictures?

I am submitting these personal pics so you can give me a membership in BME Hard and Extreme ........a full membership. Please let me know how I can access these pages ASAP.

Thank you!

Oh come on — those pictures are largely ripped off from BME, and they're obviously not even of the same person. Hell, one of the pictures isn't even of a human! It's flat-out insulting to expect that a scam like this will work. But don't worry, Franko is on the case.

Thank you -- those are great photos. Unfortunately because of the new anti-terror legislation, we can no longer transmit passwords via email as we are located in a nation that the US no longer maintains diplomatic relations with.

Please visit your nearest Office of Homeland Security and (a) show them those photos, and (b) mention the following passcode to verify that it is you that is meant to obtain them: '5782-8642-6321'. If your village does not have an office, local law enforcement should be able to direct you to the proper authorities.

May peace rain down on you like fire from the skies,

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
