Spam is mostly gross and gets deleted right away. But I seldom get spam in my non-commercial accounts.
So I was pretty amused when I got the below email in a hobby email account. (Yes, I have other hobbies!)
I am Alfazan Hussien, I was sent by someone very close to you to terminate you, but the person can't pay up to my price, I am once a Terrorist in the middle east of Afghanistan and I am now transferred to your country. I am a Mass murderer, I am very sorry for you ,It is a pity that this is how your life is going to end as soon as you don't comply. As you can see there is no need for me introducing myself to you because I don't have any business with you and you have known that I am not well English speaking, my duty as I am mailing you now is just to (KILL YOU ).
Now do you want to LIVE OR DIE? Write me back as soon as you get my mail.
Write me back?!?!?!? HAHAHAHAHAHA
I'm sorry - I just snorted and laughed and laughed. And forwarded to some folks asking (jokingly) if I should write back.
The really funny part is I forwarded this to Larry, who thought I was serious about writing back. And I overheard him tell a friend how naive he thought I was about email. Yeah, right Larry. Been doing this stuff since before you were born.....
Before Moe went to Scout camp, I showed him this list. (Go read it. You'll be glad you did. My favorite one is the Webelo.)
Moe loved the list.
He wants to use it as the basis of a Scout Scavenger Hunt.
He also loves the Webelo one.
Because he is my boy. And he loves a funny as much as I do.
