Thanks to all who sent me such important emails in 2004! It's so wonderful that you included me in your quest to inform! Because of all of you I stopped drinking Coca-Cola after I found out that it's good for removing toilet stains. I stopped going to the movies for fear of sitting on a needle infected with a disease. I smell awful, but thank goodness I stopped using deodorant because you said it causes cancer. I don't leave my car in any parking lot even though I sometimes have to walk about seven blocks, because you said that someone might drug me with a perfume sample and then try to rob me. I also stopped answering the phone because you said that they will ask me to dial a stupid number and then I get a high phone bill with calls to Uganda, Singapore, Tokyoand maybe the Mars Rover. I stopped eating chicken and hamburgers because you told me they are nothing more than horrible mutant freaks with no eyes or feathers that are bred in a lab so that places like McDonalds can sell their Big Macs. I also stopped drinking anything out of a can - you said that I will get sick from the rat faeces and urine. When I go to parties, I now don't mix with anybody. You said that someone will take my kidneys and leave me taking a nap in a bathtub full of ice. However, the police are also after me at present because you said not to pull over as they could be fake policemen trying to kidnap me. I went bankrupt from bounced checks that I wrote, in anticipation of the $15,000 that Microsoft and AOL were supposed to send me when I participated in their special e-mail program. It's weird, though, that my new free cell phone never arrived, and neither did the passes for my paid vacation to Disneyland. But I am positive that all this is because of the chain I broke or forgot to follow and I got a curse. OOPS I ALMOST FORGOT, IMPORTANT NOTE: If you don't send this message to at least 1200 people in the next ten seconds, a bird will crap on you tonight at 7:00 PM. Here's to an even better informed 2005!
