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.
I responded to one of the persistent Esenam Ayele BBelievers on his MySpace page. I told him that Esenam no longer had the resources to help anyone. Here's his reply...
dear mr. ayele
it's okay then, but one don't even say cannot, maybe it is just not my luck, hopefuly god always with you.
you've done it before, and i believe you can do it again next time, i have a believe in you, and i hope you also have a believe that someday you'll be able helping anyone again.
just like mariah carey and whitney houston song, ... you will when you believe...
I think he means BBelieve, but still Mariah and Whitney are big inspirations to Esenam.
People always ask me, if anyone in the webcam mockeries has every emailed me to complain. The personals on BBspot are part of a large network, so odds are pretty low, but apparently not zero...

Do you ever have people find themselves on your personals mockery and write you all pissed off? You actually have me featured today, and I couldn't have mocked my own headline any better. I would TOTALLY re-run over your cat and eat it. I hate them.
I'm glad she took it so well. Which isn't surprising given that she's a regular reader of BBspot. It's from the March 13th, 2008 mockery if you're interested (which I'm sure you are).
One reader scratched his head at the Doomsday trailer as well...

I watched the trailer before reading your trailer review, and one thing confused me. Where in post-apocalyptic scotland did they start drilling for oil and build the oil refineries? There seemed to be a whole lot of vehicular traffic "behind the walls" and you'd think that the Scottish reserves would have been depleted in the first 24 years...Maybe the "crack" team brings in a few hundred gallons so that the survivors behind the wall can turn on their motorcycles and exploding buses. Speaking of which, I need to get a Bentley. If I can drive through a bus and have nothing worse than a mirror fall off when I use the automatic locks after getting where I'm going, I'd feel hella safe. Oh yeah!
Crack team indeed.
By the way, I think that the last picture you included in your review makes it pretty clear what it is a "crack" team of.
If we held a Geek Tattoo contest instead of a Geek Limerick contest, I think this one would top them all...

Remember Pi? :D
This one is new, it's super sweet and awesome.
It says "Maret Andave Ar Nalyat"
Which is Quenyan elvish
And loosely translates to Live Long And Prosper :)
(it actually says live for a long time and be prosperous)
The winner of the 2003 and 2006 Geek Limerick contest has volunteered to write a weekly limerick for BBspot. Seth also has a new book coming out that you should take a look at..
Heather said, "Money (That's What I Want)."
Paul: "It's All Too Much! You Can't Do That!"
Heather: "Can't Buy Me Love,
But cash may Help!" The judge:
"She's a Woman, so All Things Must Pass."
