Barking up the wrong friggin' tree

These emails would crack me up if they weren't so frequent:

"God Is The ultimate Giver! Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I am former Mrs.Clara Williams, now Mrs.Grace Williams, A widow to the Late Mohammed Williams, I am 73 years old, I am now a new Christian convert,suffering from long time cancer of the breast. From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it's quite obvious that I won't live more than four to Seven months according to my doctors. This is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage."

It goes on at great length. Uh yeah. I'll wire you my bank account number, right away.

Hey, I recently added a news widget from www.widgetmate.com to my blog. It shows the latest news, and just took a copy and paste to implement. Might interest you too.

You gotta take a look at this website on scambaiting: http://www.419eater.com/

The person who runs it has waaaaay too much time on his hands, but it's pretty darn funny how he strings along the bad guys. :-)

That stuff hits my pissed off radar like all those Urban Legends that get chain mailed like its fact.

Did you know if you pass an email to a gozillion friend Bill Gates will evenutually get it and you'll get $5.

Blah blah blah

I usually replay with some snarky comment or such. We have two zealots who preach from an alleged "Bible" on the boardwalk and hold up a sign with slogans. One was talking about how bad the Lake of Fire was. I turned to him and said, I thought it was a pretty go song.
