Now you too can enjoy my Inbox without the annoying spam. Every week I get some amazing e-mail. Some amazing because of the sheer cluelessness of the sender, some because of the time and energy that went into crafting them and some are just simply amazing.
Beware the low-flying planes...
those jerks. sorry if I posted something that was satire
Who said indymedia shouldn't be trusted? But maybe it's not just the indymedia though...
INTERNET CUT IN EGYPT CAUSED BY LOW FLYING PLANE
Ah, the trusted media. Thanks to squawkboxnoise for sending it in.
OK, the persistent BBeliever who wants so badly to be friends with Esenam Ayele continues to pester me. He's even pestering people who have befriended Esenam on MySpace. This BBspotter, who's in on the joke, replied to the guy...
Austin, there is a reason why Mr Ayele has not been distributing funds as of late. You see he has been in a horrible accident, a hair dryer fell into a bathtub while he was bathing in his personal jet. Fortunately at that very moment a bird struck his plane shattering it into many pieces, throwing Mr Ayele into the ocean but saving him from inevitable electrocution. He is currently in the hospital recovering from his injuries.
I must warn you, Mr Ayele's generosity comes with a price. You see he isn't exactly a philanthropist as he leads on, in the fine print, that our orphanage's treasurer so greedily excepted, was an iron clad contract for a lifetime of service in Mr Ayele's diamond mines. We have not heard from our treasurer since he signed the contract - we fear for his life. I strongly suggest you stay clear of this very evil man.
You'd think that would be discouraging enough, don't you? But no Mr. Persistence replies to the BBspotter...
Whao, Thanks for the informations,cause i have thought he was what people says he is,but its like its no good meeting him,please is he based in the states or in Nigeria.
Then Esenam receives this message...
hallo sir, how are you? i hope everything just fine, and God always blessing you and your family.
The climate change really gives a hard rain here in Indonesia, how's the weather in negeria?
Ah, he's trying to be clever. Trying to draw out the true location of Mr. Ayele. I'm starting to wonder what's up with this guy, we'll have to wait until next week, as my recovery from the hospital isn't yet complete. Damn birds.
I think this BBeliever is pulling my leg. The gmail address should be the dead giveaway. What do you think?

Hello, my name is Naomi. I read your article titled: Giant Meteor
Heading Toward Earth Covered In Germs. Is it real? I got a little
freaked out about it. So if you could tell me whether its a joke or a
serious matter, I would appreciate it. My email is
I need an answer as soon as possible. Because if its real, I booked
three flights to England to evacuate. Help please.

A new study on middle age finds,
That by forty, happiness declines.
Once you're over the bump,
You'll end up in a slump.
The solution? Die at thirty-nine.
